10 week ultraound

We went in today for an ultrasound to determine the baby's size and estimated due date. Turns out our dates are right on, and the baby is growing just as expected. He/She was moving all around and kicking for the cameras. It was so reassuring to see the movement and the heart rate--156. It is amazing how clearly already you can see the baby's features on the ultrasound even though he/she is only about an inch tall at this point. We won't find out the baby's sex until our next ultrasound in May. Right now we call him/her "Nice Baby" which is a nickname courtesy of Maddie. It all started when we told her she has to be gentle and be nice to the baby, and now that is what she calls the baby. She is very sweet and strokes my tummy and gives her little brother/sister kisses. She says she will help me change the baby and feed the baby when it gets here. Can I hold her to that? Sometimes she says the baby is a boy, sometimes a girl, and sometimes both. (No twins--we checked on the ultrasound today!!!) At any rate, she wants to know when the baby is going to come out. Also sometimes she asks cute questions like if the baby is wearing jammies or using a pacifier in my belly.

Stay tuned for more updates!!!!

So, it's been a while since we posted anything on the blog..... That is because 4 days after our last blog post we found out we were expecting another baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For the last month I have been super tired and have experienced a great deal of morning sickness. There has been no extra energy for taking pictures, let alone finding the time to upload them to our website.

Amidst the chaos, we did find a day during the week when Tony was off work to head to Mount Hood and take Maddie on her first tubing adventure. She was a natural!
