Waiting Impatiently....

I feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas morning! Our big (and only) ultrasound is tomorrow morning! Eeek! I can't believe tomorrow we get to see our little bean, and find out if it is a girl bean or a boy bean!

Pregnancy update:
Morning sickness (of course, on the top of the list) is getting better slowly. Still dealing with feeling sick in the morning but if I can think of enough to eat during the day, I feel a lot better.

Right now I really love orange juice and cereal. But not together. This has been going on for a while now, and I am SO glad that I can finally drink juice without being sick!

The baby is very active, and Ben could feel the movement from the outside as soon as I was feeling it from the inside. It always feels VERY low, and I wonder if that has anything to do with the placenta being in front this time?

Last night I got out my bag of maternity clothes, and realized that I only have 4 shirts. Time to go shopping, probably to Old Navy. I love the clearance section there :)

Ollie update:
He is obsessed with counting right now. We have a few books and a song that he loves, and randomly counts things during the day. He can count to three (for the most part) but then the numbers are jumbled after that. Although, we have heard up to four a few times.

He is learning to use "big boy" cups and plates and silverware (plastic-ware), thanks to Auntie Sabrina, he has all his own stuff from Christmas! He does really well with a cup and fork! He thinks it hilarious to throw food on the floor to the dog though, which gets frustrating. Dog is spending more and more time outside during meals.

He also really likes to color, and has already broken all the crayons from Christmas. Oh well. He is so busy and talks to me all day. He loves to wave and talk to people when we go out, and sits in the stroller or shopping cart since I can barely carry him these days.

I will update more tomorrow after the appointment!


  1. I can't wait to hear what you guys are having!!!

  2. when i was pregnant with spencer aunt elaine did my ultrasound...i had meghan come with me as she was 7 years old and desperately wanted a little sister to follow her brother david...when aunti elaine said we were having a boy meghan immediately started crying, NOOOOOOOO i want a sister....we eventually told her she could name the baby which she did! best ultrasound ever was done by my baby sister!!

  3. aww, that's really sweet :) We got a dvd of the ultrasound, so I am hoping we can watch it with her like we did when we had Oliver's ultrasound!
