January 11, 2009 - 25 weeks 4 days

PopPop Dirk, John and Katie came down to say good-bye before they hit the road for home! Braden came in to my room for a little bit after they were gone and found some cartoons on tv and decided to take my place in bed - he looked pretty comfy (legs crossed and all) and was in a zone for sure! Love the new shirt that Aunt Katie got him for Christmas!!

Then tonight Chris came back and we had a little date night, which I think we both needed! He brought homemade lasagna (from our neighbor Susan - it was DELISH Sue - thanks!) and garlic bread and we had a little dinner while we watched the 2 hour premiere of 24 - we have been waiting for 2 years for it to come back on, so it was a good night! Thankfully my nurses only came in a few times - we do not like to be interrupted during this show ;)
Cookie update: yesterday we saw *flow* in Cookie's cord for the first time in over 3 weeks, it was a good day - prayers are working! Today he had one spot of absent flow and still flow in the other 2 spots which was great. He is hanging in there and trying his hardest to make it longer! A lot of people have asked if we have a recent weight on him and we don't. They will only do a growth check on him every 2 weeks so we have to wait until Friday for the next growth measurement - and YES I plan on still being pregnant next Friday :):):)
