Let it snow, let it snow....

We aren't quite sure who was more excited about the snow, us or Bailey. He LOVES everything about the snow, from playing in it to eating it. We had a ball just watching him.

Of course we had to take the famous picture of Mommy's belly. Not too pretty I might add. Keep in mind I'm only half way. GOOD GOD!!

Ok, so, if we have a boy, this is what I have to look forward to. Please help me! Kevin is like, "can you see me". Seriously, that is what he said.

Kevin and I went to the doctor today for what may be our last ultrasound until the baby is born. As soon as we walked into the ultrasound room, the technician asked us if we wanted to know the sex of our baby. HELLO!!!! YES!!! So, here we just a few minutes we'll have a name! As soon as the first picture came up on the screen, Kevin says "I think I saw something". We saw our little boy. Mason Christopher wanted us to know right away. The technician didn't have to say anything, but she was very thorough in telling us every body part and pointing out every movement to us. Mason is a very active boy. She had a hard time getting his heartbeats per minute because he kept moving around. She was able to get all of his measurements and everything is normal. As a matter of fact, according to his measurements, my due date was moved up 3 days. Now we are due June 16th. My next appointment is for a check up and will be on February 5th. I'm a little bummed that we won't have another ultrasound unless necessary. I always looked forward to seeing our son. We'll see him soon enough.

Is Christmas Over?

WOW! I can't believe the Holidays are over. We were at Nana and Papa's this year. We spent a couple of nights with them, but our visit was cut short. I started getting sick on Christmas Eve and it went down hill fast. I ended up visiting the doctor on the Monday after Christmas. I had bronchitis and a sinus infection. So I'm on my 8th day of an antibiotic. My head seems to still be congested and isn't going away. I am going back to the doctor tomorrow for a check up for myself and the baby. No ultrasound though. The last visit the doctor used a hand held device to check the baby's heartbeat and everything sounded good. I was relieved. A couple of times I thought I was going to cough out the baby.

Anyway, we had a good Christmas and got lots of nice gifts. Thank you to everyone. Unfortunately, we didn't take any pictures, so there are none to post, sorry. We are horrible about taking pictures. We are trying to get better.

We are counting down the days to find out if we are having a boy or girl. We have about 4 weeks to go. I'm looking forward to picking out a bedding set and painting the nursery. At least then, we'll have a name instead of saying "it". I can't call my baby an "it". :)
