On the move...

Well, I think it's safe to say that this baby is going to be more like it's momma...high strung! The baby is moving like crazy and it is such an amazing feeling to feel it move inside. I have been feeling it quite often for the last 2 or 3 weeks, but it seems like they are getting stronger and stronger! I have been waiting for Robert to be able to feel it and this morning, with a little patience, he felt it! I also laid on my back and just watched my stomach for awhile because it was so active I thought I might be able to see it. Sure as the world, I saw a little bump pop up during a kick. I couldn't believe it and I can't believe we are HALF WAY THERE! It will be here before we know it.

Monday is the ultrasound where we will find out if everything is growing like it should and what the sex of the baby is. I am the most impatient person in this world and I'm about to go nuts. I can't wait. It will be a fun day that we will share with both of our parents. They are both going with us to see what the baby is. We are all so excited and I can't wait to finally be able to get some little clothes for the baby. I've waited since it is hard to buy when you don't know the sex. So after Monday the fun will begin, hopefully! There is always the chance that they won't be able to tell.

That's all for now...5 more days of Christmas vaca.....but man, it sure is nice!

18 Weeks & Christmas Decor

As of Thursday we are 18 weeks. Can't believe it is going as fast as it is! I am so anxious to find out the gender of the baby in 14 days! Everything is going great...feeling's growing...and over this past week I have really felt the baby move a lot. It seems to be the most active in the morning and when I lay down at night to go to bed. Maybe it's because I concentrate and notice the movement more, but it is amazing. I can't wait until it kicks hard enough for Robert to feel it!

Christmas is only 5 days away and I'm very anxious for it to get here! Christmas is my favorite time of the year. We are headed to Potosi tomorrow to spend the rest of the week there. We will leave Friday evening and head to my mom and dad's. They are calling for snow Friday night and Saturday! Yay!  Here are a few pictures of what Christmas looks like around our house. I love having the tree up and the lights on all of the time. The house will look so bare without them!

On another note, Ellie has loved Christmas, too. She decided to open a few presents (which weren't hers) a little early. She's getting a little crazy these days. Today I looked over and here is what I saw....
Yeah, someone is a little bit spoiled. She spent the night with Suzie (my mom and dad's dog) and she was wore out!

And here's one more picture from mom's house...the stockings. The mantle is getting year there will be one more stocking! 

Merry Christmas Everyone!

17 Weeks

Today we are 17 weeks. We went for our monthly check up and we got a great report. The heartbeat was about 150. The little buggar was squirming all around and Dr. Mou had a hard time finding it, but we heard it and she said everything was great. I measured correctly and she said I was right on track! Now we just have to wait til January 3rd and we will FINALLY find out what the little one is. We have our monthly appointment that day, too and we cannot wait! I think my parents and Robert's parents are coming with us to the ultrasound. Everyone is so excited and it will be so neat to have them all there with us. I think that after we find out, we might have to go do a little shopping and finally buy some baby clothes :)

I cannot believe that it is ALMOST CHRISTMAS! One more week of work and then the wonderful 2 week break is here! Woo hoo!

Well, that's all for now. :)
