Fun Stuff

We got the baby's crib together this weekend which we wanted to accomplish before Michael's 8-week surgery rotation that started yesterday which will mean he'll be home very little before Christmas. Also, Ballard has been enjoying the baby swing I picked up...as you can see.

20 Week Update

I am officially past the halfway mark (yesterday) and I can't believe how quickly the time has passed. On Monday I a doctors appointment and had my first non-study ultrasound, which was so much fun as it really focused on the baby. Our sonographer even did a little 3D time, which is amazing - as you can see. This was at the end of the ultrasound and our little boy must have been thinking while throwing his hand over his face "You have enough pictures, I want to go back to sleep now".
The pregnancy has been going really well. I'm starting to show and have moved completely into maternity pants, which are very, very comfortable. I've only gained 3 pounds but its shocking out relatively small amount added to the front of your stomach can do!

Our First Year

Yesterday Mike and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. We spent a good majority of the day relaxing around the house and then headed about 30 miles out of town to do a little shopping and have a nice dinner. We had a very yummy dinner at the Melting Pot which left us both very full, or so I thought.

Less than an hour after we got home Mike was already itching to break into our wedding cake that his mom had so nicely stored for us all year. We fed each other a small bite, and it was suprisingly not too bad. Mike must have thought it was even better, because before I knew it, nearly the entire thing was gone. There aren't many foods he likes more than cheese and cake, so I think this anniversary is going to be hard to top for him!

Happy anniversary baby, here's to a very exciting year ahead of us and many more to come. I love you.

Indian Summer

Its going to be 89 degrees in Ann Arbor today. Although its nice to have a long fall season, this isn't fall. It's like the worst days of summer - hot and humid. Where are the nice crisp mornings that beckon for cashmere sweaters to finally be pulled out of the closet? I'm ready for a real fall, but I'm afraid the weather is going to transition from hot to downright cold.

Unexpected greeting

After a lazy Sunday breakfast this morning Mike and I were sitting on the couch when I felt a faint tapping/flipping in my lower stomach. At first I thought nothing of it, and then it happened again. It was the baby moving! I'm so glad Mike and I were sitting right next to each other at that very moment, it was amazing!
