So I purposely took last week off, from work and blogging... Two weeks ago Charlie was playing on my mom's neighbors swing set, he was running across one of those wooden wobbly bridges, tripped and bashed his face into the corner of it resulting in two nasty vertical gashes in his forehead where he had to get 13 stitches along with other scrapes, bruises and a fat lip.  I'm not going to post any pictures of it or really talk anymore about beside that it was a traumatic experience for all of us.  I was sick over it, didn't tell anyone about it because every time I tried to I would cry and ended up taking last week off just to be with him and do some fun stuff like Thomas The Train to get our minds off things.  The good news is he is healing very quickly, in good spirits and the scaring will be less than what we originally anticipated. He was unable to finish his last swimming class and we also had to push our family photos back to later this month but we and things are starting to feel normal again.  I'm just thankful that he is ok, things can always be worse so thank goodness it wasn't. 
P.S. Thomas was fun but not worth the $36 that we would have paid.  My sister works for Boston Mills so luckily we got free tickets.  Sorry for only sharing one picture, it's the only one that doesn't show his boo boo's :(  I just don't feel like sharing those right now.

On a more upbeat note, my last doctors appointment went well.  I passed my glucose test and got my 1st round of Rhogam shots. For anyone wondering what Rhogam shots are... My blood type (O-) is rare, I believe my doc said only 7% of the worlds population have it and since we can't find out what my baby's blood type is I get to go through a process where they draw my blood and with it make a special shot that I have to get around 30 weeks. The antibodies in the shot protect against any Rh-positive red blood cells from the baby so my immune system wont think the baby is something foreign that shouldn't be there and try to attack it.  Does that make sense!?  Then after baby is born, depending on it's blood type I have to get another one.  Charlie has a negative blood type too so I didn't have to get the second one after I had him.  Anyways, baby is doing great and I'm still feeling really good!

Also, for those of you asking about our house progress, Ben and his dad did a lot of work clearing the property over Memorial Day weekend.  I'm so in love with it, especially now that summer is approaching.  The huge trees and greenery are breath taking!  I can't remember if I already said this or not but we did end up going with a custom builder instead of Schumacher and we also decided to go with a bigger floor plan.  We haven't picked out all our finishes yet but the builder plans on staking where the house will go this week.  Other than a few other things we still have to finalize like our septic fields and the water tables, things are slowly moving along.  It's very exciting for us! 

Lastly, I got to go to The Rolling Stones concert this weekend in Columbus. For those of you who know me know I'm super obsessed with them:) It was awesome!  Our seats were great but they were so far to the side of the stage that you couldn't see some portions of the front.  We could however see behind the stage and saw them as they were getting out of their limo bus to run backstage so as we were screaming for them Mick and Ronnie gave me a wave before entering the stage! BOOM! Another upside was that it wasn't very crowded where we were siting so we kept moving down closer to the stage as the show went on.  By the end of the night a security guard (who had a pregnant daughter also due in July) told us to go ahead and head down to the FRONT ROW!  I literally could have reached out and touched them when they came to our side of the stage!  They played my favorite song which I was so excited about because I had never seen them play it live before. It was so fun, definitely a night to remember!  I love the second picture, it sums up my excitement level (which was through the roof) the whole night! Haha!

T- 6 weeks!
