I'm just going to jump straight into my update this week because, while I had my long appt., I haven't heard anything back from them and I don't see my Dr. again until the beginning of next week. No news is normally good news!

So! First update from my Dr's appt yesterday. I was feeling pretty nervous with Bryson being out of town for a firefighters conference that he would miss the birth because I have been dilated for a couple of weeks now; but I was a 1 cm for a month with Foster then was induced and I was a 3 for awhile with Lo and then was induced. So a 1 isn't too worrisome for me, but I know some ladies go into labor at a 1.

Both of my kids have a mutual love of hats, sunnies and pictures of themselves. They will pull out all of sister's hats (not Foster's for some reason) and will try them on for hours. when I tell them it's time to go and to get shoes on they always grab sunglasses and a hat and I end up having to go grab their shoes for them because obviously there were more important things to worry about.
I was planning on just taking a picture or two but then they would pose and run to the camera, Foster yelling, "See!" the whole time and then giggling with how cute they looked. These two always keep me entertained when they are home, even if they do destroy the house in 5 minutes and I much prefer them trying on hats than Foster chasing around Lo with his sword trying to hit her and growling/yelling at her.

|Can we all just agree this is a little mini Bryson?!|
First, I thought I would do a quick update before getting into the weekly update. This section may be a little tmi if you get grossed out and don't like talking about cervixes, but if you love it- you've come to the right place. ;)

I get so many questions about my hair daily. I try to reply to each and every one in lots of detail but it would be so much easier to just be able to attach a link. My hair has been every color, style and length and I have worn clip in extensions for almost five years now so I feel like I know a thing or two when it comes to keeping hair healthy and dying it all sorts of colors. So if you want allllll the details about my hair and upkeep then I hope you get some answers from this post :)

It was another eventful week, and I'm not talking about dying eggs or a fun, family filled Easter; it was filled with more trips to the hospital. A slightly shortened cervix (2.7 instead of 2.8), finding out I'm 1-2 cm dilated (instead of closed and hard), talks of being transferred to the hospital, strict bed rest, hour + long contractions, a whole lot of petty, selfish emotions, and some very, VERY unwelcome comments about how I am putting baby in danger by not being on hospital bed rest or in my bed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Mental health is important too. So if I want to go out and sit for an hour or I relocate outside on the grass to watch the kids play- I don't need anyone's opinion about it. I am laying down a majority of the day and pick and choose the couple of things I do a week, all of which are relaxing and don't involve rock climbing, biking, or jumping jacks. So thank you everyone for your opinions, but unless you're my doctors, please, keep them to yourself.
To answer another question I have been getting a lot of this week:
Yes, I am due early June.
Yes, I'm sure.

So we'll just cut to the chase. I know you all can't wait to see the pictures of the kids hunting their eggs and playing with bunnies and finding out what we're having is last on your list ;) buuuutttt I thought I would start with our exciting news that we have kept a secret since week 16! (Or maybe even before)
We were originally not planning on finding out what we were having but you all know how rough this pregnancy has been and how many ultrasounds we have ended up having to have so it's been impossible not to tell that we are having a....

I say "coloring eggs" because that was the original intent for the day. We were going to head to my moms house and dye Easter eggs; but Foster had other plans. He was much more interested in playing in the flower pots and with Ms. Claira Rose than some silly eggs. Now, if Lo had been there instead of at her dads for the day, this would be a completely different post. She is all about anything artistic and getting to color on something beside paper is pretty much her favorite thing.
Foster was throwing dirt in the air and it was landing on Claira's head and she thought it was the funniest thing. She loves getting into all sorts of trouble with him. They are going to be quite the naughty, sneaky pair when they are both a little bit older. She just knows when he's doing something he's not supposed to be doing and it makes her grin from ear to ear.
Even though there was not an egg dyed by Foster Brady, we still had a pretty fun time :)

Life lately has been really relaxed. We have been hanging out at home enjoying the gorgeous weather. The kids and I ran a couple "errands", if you count smoothies and shopping for Easter clothes and pictures frames as errands. It is so much nicer now that it is really warm out to be able to stay home laying down 90% of the day. I'm able to go out back and let them play while I lay down outside. Vitamin D does the soul some good.
Last week was also Lo's spring break so her and brother were able to play the whole time and they never fought once....ok, that's a lie. The older Foster gets the less cute it is when he attacks her. She went to a 3 hour gymnastics seminar and was trying to show us some sweet moves and Foster kept interrupting her. So
