10+ Weeks Already???

My, my how the time flies! Just another week until the news of your impending arrival will be thrust upon the world...or at least your grandparents :).

We chose Labor Day because we thought it was funny, and we had chosen another holiday (Christmas) for your brother. We aren't waiting until Christmas for you (hahaha!).

Anyway, you are 10 weeks and 3 days along now, which means you are over a quarter of the way until your due date! I keep adding the caveat that your brother arrived early, so perhaps you will too...we'll see when we get there!

In other news, we also bought Daniel a "big brother" shirt...going to make him another one to break the news with, but figured this one will do too...can't have too many of them. Your uncle Gary is already in the know about you as well, and he seems to be excited to be an uncle again.

With Mommy...well...still sick. She's trying some different things (ginger and stuff) to see if that helps, but every day there's a dry heave (if not more!). This is not the most exciting time, to say the least. But, if things go as they did with your brother, it should be looking up soon!

And I know I'm skipping around here, and this is more news about Daniel than you, but he had his tubes put in his ears on Tuesday...all the better to hear you with when you are born! He did really well with it, so there's nothing to be scared of if you have to get them at some point ('s hoping you don't!).'s appointments! Your next one is the day after Labor Day (the 7th) and then the NT test ultrasound the next day! We can't wait to get a look at you and see how much you've grown!

Well, that's about all for now!

8 Weeks and an Ultrasound!

Welcome to being 8+ weeks along, little baby! On Wednesday, we had the first doctor's was GREAT because we got to get our first glimpse of you! Ultrasound pictures will soon follow here, but you had a good heartbeat, measured a good size and all of that stuff. Since it was about a week and a half earlier than we got to see your brother, you looked very different from what we remember him looking like!

So armed with a bunch of stuff from the doctor's office and two pictures, we are already excited to get another look at you when you're just a little bit bigger. Next doctor's appointment is on September 7th, and then you have the NT test ultrasound the next day. By then, you'll have gotten some real arms and legs and grown lots more!

In other news, mommy still has a small cold/sinus infection that's been keeping her up a little bit at night. Hopefully it isn't bothering you too! The stomach situation hasn't gotten better, but that should soon...with luck!

Well, that's about all! It's still nice and warm and toasty in the outside world here...and you have just under 7 months more until you get to see!

Magic Week 7!

And what are you doing this week...growing of course! Today you are actually 7 weeks and 1 day along, and the size of a blueberry...or a raspberry, depending on who you ask.

In other news, it's less than a week before we (hopefully!) get a glimpse of you on an ultrasound, which is definitely exciting! Your big brother won't be there, but we'll show him the pictures, and later he can come and see an ultrasound.

As for the puking...well, that hasn't stopped. Now it's just even being at the wrong altitude that can cause your mommy go dry heave and spit up stomach fluid. And tired tired tired she is too!

Anyway, almost time for your brother to get out of the shower! It's so much fun referring to Daniel as your brother now! Sweet dreams!

Let the barfing begin?

I tried long and hard to remember when the morning sickness started with your seemed like it started later, and with less of a bang, perhaps (building up and then getting worse). This time around, it seemed like the aversions and cravings and twinges of nausea came earlier (even before we knew you were on your way...had nausea right as your grandparents were leaving to go back to Montana!).

In any case, there's only been one real episode of throwing up...and it was on the same night that Stat and Daniel decided to throw up as well.

In other news, you are moving right along...6 weeks and 4 days! That puts you at the size of a sweet pea!

Today is also big news because your daddy turns 35 today! We celebrated by going out to Applebee's. Pretty soon you'll know what it's like to go out with the family (and maybe you can keep your brother occupied and tell him to stop running off!).

As for the TP Tuesdays (turned Wednesday's)...still at 10 sheets and holding! We need to get some pictures going on here soon when you start to grow so we can show everyone that you're on your way!
