Christmas 2006

It feels like our christmas has lasted forever, we got a great English Christmas which I hope we get to do many more years, much to those that cooked it's dismay! :) And almost every day of christmas I just sit and think how next year will be so different, this time next year our little guy will be crawling (as far as his grandma is concerned) getting into presents, playing with paper and boxes, smiling ( I am sure there will be crying also-im not completely disallusioned :) ) I just cant wait to love Christmas more than I do already.

We have had a fun few days of shopping, spending time together, eating :) I really have enjoyed this holiday with my little belly... :) and with the excitement surrounding us for this year and next.

Yet again we have had a truly wonderful year! They just keep getting better and I cant wait to see how much next year is going to change our lives :) here's hoping for the better! :)

Happy Birthday DAD! :)

Merry Christmas Eve!

Well after a long day of getting ready to do OUR Christmas Eve, which was wonderful, lots of family, and we also got a visit from Jenny, Jillian and Tom :)

I decided that it was time to bake the cookies I wanted to make all week.. not that they are good or I needed them, but just a need to bake.. the first batch just came out and I am not sure how good they will be ! : (

Anyway Pregnant and Baking.. I didnt realise til halfway through that something was in the way :)

21 weeks!

So 19 weeks til the big day...or as April said.. 17 weeks for an optimist and 21 weeks for an pessimist! LOL I do hope this baby is an optimist!

At my visit yesterday I gained 2.5 pounds in the last 4 weeks, which was pretty good for going to England... and starting on all the christmas food. My total is now 5 pounds since I got PG, which I am happy with! :) My Dr said that between the tests they did and the level 2 sonogram it looks as though this is one healthy, happy baby! I am so lucky and just cant wait to meet him.

His measurements from the sonogram have him weighing about one pound, his Femur is about 2 inches, the part that surprised me was that his head is about 9 inches around, thats abou the size of a peach maybe, his abdomen is also about the same around.. it just seems strange that I cant feel huge lumps in there.. LOL I am still feeling swishes and turns and some pushing but no kicks yet! :( I am sure it will come soon enough..

Bubble baths in the morning are so nice! :)

Hiccuping Baby!!!

We went for our 20 week sonogram today.. and we had the chance to get the DVD, while there was a lot of stuff on the DVD this was the best part! :)

They didnt just show him for very long but when they did he had hiccups, he did a little dance at another spot too.. and is VERY active! LOL

He is measuring just fine approx 4 days ahead :) so we may see him in April :)

The Family!

Well I got what I came for.. :) On Friday I was surrounded by 23 of my family! :) I have waited a long time to see everyone and do christmas like we always used to when I was younger. And to have Kent there and Hendrix (kind of) was great! We had an amazing dinner and then took pictures for what seemed like forever! So here are a few...

The ONLY down side is that I got whatever Kent got right after this and it prevented us from visiting my dads new church and house. But man that bug was pretty bad! It hit me hard.. but I was over it by today and we were able to enjoy the sights of London! We had so much fun and took lots of pictures.. I will add the link to these later.. We also took some shots of London which I have decided will match Hendrix's new room, along with his new Paddington :)

I will post more later.. just wanted to get some pictures up :)

Yay England!

Its finally rainy and gloomy just want Kent wanted.. and hes getting the blame for it here too!

We have had a good time, except for the time change, it took us til last night to be able to sleep through the night, and Kent was a little sick, but now we seem to be on track :)

I am also patiently sitting here waiting for news on April, at the last call she was pushing.. actually Gavin said WE were pushing.. how cute! LOL I do hope they are all OK and I cant help but wish I was there.. I cant believe after all this time I can get homesick for America... :(

I cant wait to see pictures of little Mason though! :)
