It's a......BOY!!!!

We just had our ultrasound earlier this week. It was amazing! The baby was so active, and we got some great photos of him! We even got one of him sucking his thumb He is so cute, I can't wait for his arrival. Seeing him in the ultrasound made me want to be able to hold him! I know, he will come soon enough. The most important thing is that the technician said he looked very healthy! We really wrestled with our decision to find out the sex, because our initial plan was to...

So I had my 4 month check up at the Dr's earlier this week, and I am happy to report that everything is going as it should. Besides gaining 10 lbs already, I am feeling pretty good! It's funny, because although my appetite has certainly increased, I really haven't been eating that many extra calories, so I was worried I was gaining too much weight too fast, but the Dr. says I am doing well, so I will try not to worry about that too much. I was so excited to hear that we are getting our ultrasoun...

I thought it was about time I announced it to the few people who know me on here...I'm pregnant! My husband and I are expecting our first baby, due in February! As we are past three months, we have told everyone here at work, and we heard the heartbeat last week which gave us confirmation of everything progressing as it should. It was amazing hearing the heartbeat. I have had tons of the usual unpleasant pregnancy symptoms, but it seemed so surreal until hearing the proof that there is actually ...

This past weekend I volunteered to be a Christmas bell ringer for the Salvation Army. The shift was three hours long on Saturday afternoon, but we had unusually warm weather this weekend so it was actually very pleasant to be outside for that long. I had always wanted to volunteer for this because I admire those who give their time to such a great cause; it is so great and selfless. So I decided to finally do it this year, and I have to tell you, I am so glad I did! I can't tell you how good it ...

My sister was born with a heart condition called aortic stenosis, which is a narrowing of the aortic valve. Her first surgery was when she was only 10 weeks old. She has had several surgeries since, replacing the valve. The last time she had one was when she was about 13. She is almost 27 now. We knew eventually she would need another valve replacement, since the donors valve that is in now will not be durable to hold up forever. She has been getting a lot of irregular heart palpitations lately ...

We went camping this weekend up north to my husband's grandparents' property. They own over 140 acres of what used to be farm land in the tiniest town you have ever seen. Seriously I would guess the population to be around 100! So it is very nice property with a river for canoeing, but besides that, is pretty boring and in the middle of nowhere. Anyways, the whole family (extended family, which is usually around 50 people) go up to the property to camp for over a week. Oh, did I mention that...

I have always known that I have a sensitive stomach. I have to be careful with food sometimes because I tend to get a lot a stomach aches and cramps fairly often. Sometimes everday. I also have a tendency to get nauseous (sp?) easily and sometimes often, and a lot of times it's right after eating. It was actually my husband who suggested this to me, but now I am starting to think that I may be developing lactose intolerance. I am really hoping it's not because I love dairy! In fact, until he bro...

Ok I guess since JillUser tagged me I can be a good sport too! I dont know if I can think of 5 , but I'll try to give you something.

1) I am very much mama's girl and in elementary school I always missed her when I was at school. One day in second grade, I think, I forgot my jacket and she came up to the school to give it to me. After she left my class, I actually cried because I missed her already! I got teased for it bigtime.

2) Middle School. Period. Middle school could be very fun, o...

My husband found this cool game online this morning to see what celebrity you are best matched for based on personal interests and other questions. It takes only a few minutes and is pretty fun! I dont know just how accurate it really is seeing as my match was Kevin Spacey!!! The other close matches were Mel Gibson, Sean Penn, and Bruce Springsteen! So I guess for women they dont have any men under 40 for my age group, but my husband gets Reese Witherspoon as his main match, with Gwyneth Paltro...

We celebrated Easter with my husband's family last night, because my father in law is working on Easter Sunday. We had so much fun! Let me tell you how sweet my mother in law is! She is so funny. She will never consider her kids too old for Easter baskets, even though her youngest is 21, oldest 26, and the middle child is now a mother! Anyways, she hid eggs all over the house and then had us go looking for them on a little egg hunt! After that, we colored Easter eggs, which is something I haven'...

Until I met my husband, I had never been camping. I was extremely nervous when he asked me to come along on a family trip to go camping up north. I didn't know what to expect, I thought it would be in the middle of nowhere deep in the woods with nobody else around. Well I was glad to have had such low expectations, because I think that made me have an even better time when I got there. Now, I do know that some people actually do go on those rustic camping trips I had imagined, but we went to a c...

Well we just got back from our Hawaiian vacation on the island of Kauai on Sunday night. We had such an awesome time, but are very glad to be back now. If anyone is following the weather their right now, Hawaii got a lot of rain which is causing flooding lately. The night we got there, all we heard from everyone was how hard it had been raining nonstop for almost 2 weeks straight! We thought for sure our vacation would be ruined. We were pleasantly surprised to wake up to a picture perfect sunny...

Yesterday my husband's sister had her baby. A beautiful little girl named Abigail. This makes my husband and myself an aunt and uncle for the first time, and we could not be more excited! It didn't really sink in while she was pregnant, but now I have come to the realization that I have a neice, and she is going to be spoiled like crazy! She is the first grandchild for both sides of the family

Now I am going to have to go shopping this weekend and get started on spoiling the little princess...
