Well.... it's in there :) I couldn't believe how fast they could get me in for an ultrasound when I called! Today we got to see our baby for the first time and he or she is beautiful! I'm not into calling them bean or peanut or anything like that, but my dad says he/she looks like a turtle, and I like that! But for the most part, it's just my little baby! The heart beat was 158 and we got to hear it and everything! I'm measuring 7 weeks and 4 days which he said is perfect!
After ages of everything in Brad and Veronica's kitchen being in the center because they're painting, they finally moved it all back against walls. It was crazy to walk into because I'm so used to managing around everything! :)
Our favorite line from our 4th of July tradition.... watching the musical 1776! My family and I have watched it almost every year for the last 15... it's a musical surrounding the few months leading up to the Declaration being signed on the 4th of July. I wouldn't miss watching it for anything, but after you've seen it time and time again, you watch it with varrying levels of attention every year! That line is from when John Adams is trying to convince the Congress to declare independance! To which he answers "Nevah!!!" As Suzanne and I think it should be spelled! lol Then wewatched the DC fireworks on TV as usual before I headed home!
Suzanne is coming home for a week from camp and I went with my mom today to pick her up! It's an hour and a half drive and these lollipops help to keep my mind off not feeling so great. By now I won't say I have full blown morning sickness, but I certainly don't feel great sometimes! Oh and I'm going to show Suzanne my new folder to tell her she's going to be an aunt :)
It's been two and a half very long weeks waiting for my first OB appointment! And after an hour and a half in the waiting room all they did was blood work for me today and schedule an appointment for four weeks from now when I will be about 11 weeks! But I did ask to be sent for a sonogram earlier than that for peace of mind and Dr. Stern was agreeable to that. It could still take a week or so, but at least it might not have to be four! I got a folder full of all the information I will need for the hospital and delivery! I carry it around like it's my life line!
These birds have a nest up in our rafters and they sit on this railing and make sure the coast is clear before flying up to it! I think the male is beautiful.... Steve loves to sit and talk to them in his bird chirp voice! But man are they noisy sometimes!
This is Selena Gomez's second appearance in this blog I do believe! Her new CD came out today and Kateri and I tool a trip to get it... that and I needed a sprite so we used it as an excuse to go get one! I don't like nearly as many songs on this one as I did on the others, but it was worth the buy!
Every year our local park sponsors different genre bands for a summer concert series. Today was the first one and I went with my family! Music from the 60's! Is it sad that I like that music much better than most of our current music?? We also got some pretty good pizza there!
I finally dug this out of its box... we found it back in November in Florida and are going to finally put it up! You just switch around the days and months and it never ends :)
