11.5 weeks... belly pic!

Here it is!  Our first official pic of the baby belly!  It's not much, but it's definitely there and my pants officially do not button anymore!  :o)  We are in our 11th week right now, and feeling better every day...  due to the help of meds for the nausea and iron pills now that I found out I am anemic!  (That was definitely not helping the exhaustion factor and I can already tell a huge difference in just a few days of being on the extra iron!)

I already can't wait for April to be here so I can hold this little baby in my arms, but I guess I will try and enjoy this pregnancy and the peace and quiet before it's gone!  :o)  I'm so excited to get back to life now that the worst of the nausea and exhaustion seems to be behind us!  Oh, and yes...  I am in my pajamas!  :o)  We took this pic at 10:30 last night...  I was way beyond ready for bed already!!


Navy comment of the week! #2

This one just had to be shared.  Not so much funny as incredibly sweet.

(Scene:  I am laying on the couch, miserable as always lately.)

Navy:  "I hope the baby come soon."

Me:  "Why?"

Navy:  "So your tummy feels better!"

(There's nothing like a comment from a 6 year old to make you feel better when you're miserable!)

Navy comment of the week!

I know it's been a while since I've posted one of these...  He's got plenty of funny things to say, but this is one of the more memorable!

(Scene:  The fam sitting at the counter, eating dinner)

me:  "Navy, you are the messiest eater I know!"

Navy:  "What about Joe?"

Andrew:  "Who's Joe?"

Navy:  "You know...  SLOPPY Joe!"

:o)  yep.  He's pretty cute.


baby's first picture!

We had our first doctor's appointment yesterday...  It was so fun to see our baby for the first time!  The picture is not very clear, because I have a tilted uterus - which just means baby is too far back in my body for them to get a very clear picture yet with a traditional ultrasound!

This is a profile shot.  And no, that thing sticking up is not baby's arm, it is his or her nose and mouth!  :o)  The dark shadow to the right of it is the eye socket.  But I know that it can be hard to see!  I had the advantage of seeing baby in motion, with heart beating so it was easier to see what I am seeing!  Oh and right in the middle of the ultrasound, baby did a little jog and waved at us...  it was so fun to see!  

And yes, we are planning on finding out the sex of our baby, which we will find out the day after Thanksgiving...  and will promptly notify the world!  :o)


one for my mom! (and an update for the rest of you!)

This one is in honor of my mom...  (This is my favorite little bistro in Poulsbo)  :o) 

One of the many things I wish I could enjoy right now...  a rhubarb crisp like this one I made several weeks ago!

...and the final pic.  This is what I wish I could be doing right now!!  :o)  (Eating something and actually enjoying it!!)  And it wouldn't hurt to have my favorite little mexican here with me either!  I miss you Priscila!

Well, I guess you've probably figured it out...  the morning sickness has begun!  Although I must admit I don't really like the person who dubbed it "morning" sickness.  There is nothing MORNING about it!!

I guess I have been lucky to have held off this long...  I just hope I can keep my sanity through the next weeks of this!  Any thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated!  And yeah, I know...  it's all a good thing and a sign that things are probably progressing well with baby, but seriously, hearing that doesn't make it any easier to go through!  :o)

I still haven't had my first doctor's appointment yet, so no baby pics to post, but I will post one as soon as I get it!  Oh, and thank you all so much for your notes, cards, comments, etc.!  We are so blessed to have such amazing family and friends!  We love you all!
