I started crying when the ultrasound lady told us it was a boy for sure! We both were not surprised…we told her that we both thought it was a boy.
Actually the night before we went---I asked Randy to pray that I wouldn’t be disappointed if we found out it was a Girl instead. He didn’t say that in the prayer…but we still both knew inside it was a boy.
Randy asked me if it is more REAL to me now. NOPE! I still can’t feel him yet, so here is our little alien baby. Isn’t he so CUTE!
Judy (my sister) said, “We already know what he is going to look like…ISAAC!” (My nephew, Issac, looks just like ME when I was that age—in the BOY VERSION!!! And a good thing that he is SO DANG CUTE…so I hope he is a blonde little Ikey!!!)
July 31, 2009:
We are doing GREAT! I am still feeling really good. I am gaining weight, but I don’t really look pregnant yet…which will be interesting when I start wearing maternity clothes probably by next month in September. The baby definitely doesn’t like to be squished, so I have just been wearing bigger sized clothing. We go in for our 20 week ultra sound on Tuesday Aug, 4th at 4:30pm. We will be able to find out if there are any problems and make sure he is developing okay. One of our friends has been telling us about the 4-D ultra sounds. We saw some pictures advertising that you can do that now…absolutely amazing—it’s an actual photograph of your baby before he is born…so we will definitely have to look into that when we are closer to the due date.
We have been cleaning out the back room to get ready to turn it into a nursery. That has been a huge project because Randy and I have WAY TOO MUCH STUFF!!! J We are finding creative new ideas and ways to pack and store things. We found a little storage unit that we put on our balcony to help create space. Randy did a great job putting it together, putting all of our Christmas decorations in it and re-arranging our little storage unit we have on the side of our house. Now we are tackling the back bedroom and our room---it should be interesting. Hopefully we can find places to put everything. Both of us have been getting rid of old clothes and things we don’t need or use anymore. Nice SUMMER cleaning!
Randy has still been looking for another job, but we haven’t been able to find anything for him yet. He is so ready to, “Get out of the Sweat Shop” as he proclaims everyday.
Our church callings have been keeping us SO BUSY! They took me out of Sunday School and put be as the Young Women’s 1st Counselor, so now I get to go to meetings along w/ Randy on Tuesdays and Wednesdays night too. J
My 20 year HS Reunion was a blast and Randy was such a good sport meeting all of my old friends. He is so great (and so patient all of the time w/ all of the crazy things I rope him into!)
My nephew Judson arrived in
Randy’s friends Mike and Brenda Scarlett are also coming to
That’s about everything going on in our lives. Let us know what is going on in yours.
