Happy Halloween!

On the way to daycare this morning!

All ready for trick or treating!

Trick or treating! Maddie had her hand in everyone's candy basket before she actually said "trick or treat"... oh well, she's still learning.

Here are some pictures of Maddie last Halloween for comparison... she's getting so big!

15 weeks

We are 15 weeks today and here are our pictures... baby looks good so far! I feel like I look much bigger than 15 weeks, but I guess that's what happens when you've already had 2 kids. I feel pretty good these days. Not too sick, not too tired yet. In other news... we had our first snowflakes today...

Ben's comings and goings

So, I have not personally posted for a long time and I thought now would be a good time to do so and update everyone as to what I have been up to. I have been very busy at Highland Hospital where I spend 80% of my time on the Labor and Delivery floor. Highland Hospital delivers about 3000 babies per year, about 40% of those by c-section. My role there is to help out the residents with their vaginal deliveries while learning how to do c-sections. It has been great, people have been very nice here in Rochester and at the hospital.

For tracking purposes, I have to record all my deliveries, so I thought I would share. From July 14 to October 28:

I have delivered 71 babies.
20 vaginal deliveries
51 c-sections.

The other 20% of my time is spent at Highland Family Medicine which is a residency program like where I went in Fairfax. Here I see "normal" patients who have complaints from back pain to pneumonia to diabetes. It is refreshing at times to do more "basic" stuff.

Congrats to the Bouteneff's!! I have added a link to their blog (on the left). Check out pictures of their baby (really, all you can see is Tara's belly, but I guarentee it will get bigger).

Hope to see everyone at the holidays and/or the SuperSnowBowl!

Officially Insane!

So... for any of you out there who haven't heard the news, we are very happy and excited to announce the upcoming arrival of our newest soon-to-be bundle of joy... Baby Mailloux #3!

We are 13 weeks and 2 days along and, knock on wood, I have finally begun to feel better. I was quite nauseated early on but, thankfully, I think that has passed.

This baby is scheduled to arrive on April 22, but hopefully not on the 21st as this is big sister Madelyn's birthday... we'll just have to wait and see.

Since we were induced with both Maddie and Owen we would like to just let things happen naturally when the time comes, so that should be interesting as I'm not exactly sure what to expect. But as I said, we'll just have to wait and see!

Below are pictures from both of our ultrasounds. The first one is from when we were 8 weeks and the ones after that are from just the other day.

8 weeks

13 weeks

And yes, we are officially looking for a minivan... we are actually going to test drive one tomorrow...
