First day of School!

Yesterday was the long awaited day...first day of school! For Curtis at least. He was so excited. He wasn't nervous at all. We decided to walk him to school with our friends and neighbors, the House family. Halfway there we met up with another friend, Seth. Curtis, Noah and Seth pretty much ran the rest of the way to the school. When we got there, Curtis immediately found his class lined up and ran to his friends from his class last year. I'm so happy that he is in the same class as some of these boys again, they are good kids. When I picked Curtis up, he happily exclaimed "No homework!". As I questioned him about his favorites of the first day, he said "Having three recesses. Oh, and the lunch you packed for me!" Ahh, how sweet. So far, 2nd grade seems to be serving him well. Noah starts all-day kindergarten next Tuesday. Not really sure what I'll do all day without having to referee two boys!

On a baby note, I am 28 weeks today. I had to do the Glucose test for diabetes, which is never very enjoyable. So far, I haven't heard anything back but I don't really know how long it takes to get the results. Get this, though...I gained a WHOPPING 12 pounds in the last 2 weeks! How is that even humanly possible? There was a new girl training today who weighed me so I'm hoping that is was her mistake because seriously...that is a ton of weight to gain in 2 weeks! My midwife wasn't too concerned as that only brings my total weight gain to 19, but still! Ridiculous. I guess we'll see in 2 weeks if that was correct or not. Curtis took this belly shot of me a few minutes ago...I'm huge but that's what happens when you're only 5 feet tall! YIKES!

Edited to Add: I stepped on my scale at home and it was 10 pounds less than what I weighed at my appointment...I'm going with my scale and blaming the 12 pound gain on the new girl that weighed me!!!

Cute pictures! And you look great. You know, I once, with RAP, didn't gain weight for more than a month and then gained 5 lbs. in one week. It happens that way. And 19 lbs is great for 28 weeks! You look great.

How fun! Looks like Curtis loved school...that's so cute he's in the same class with his old friends. Don't worry about how much weight is gained...I love being able to blame it on the baby :) 19 is NOT BAD at all!!
