Save the Date!

January 4th is the day we find out whether we are having a boy or a girl! I can't wait! Everything looks good, and I am feeling great. My doctor said that now is the time to get the house ready for baby, so I guess we'd better clean out that second bedroom :)

What do YOU think? Boy or girl? Randy is hoping for a boy.

I have been working on getting my menu together for the next several weeks because I have been such a slacker! The worst thing about coming up with a menu, is coming up with one :) Then only good things can happen! You know what you are going to eat, you know what to buy at the store so you're not buying things you don't need, and there will be less stress in your life! I can promise you this because for the last few weeks it's been crazy trying to figure out what to eat at our house. I finally got the hint when Randy said (in his most loving, husband voice ever) "Umm... Honey? Do you think you could take some time to come up with a menu? That way I could even start making meals if you are too busy". Alright, I did it! I made my menus! Want to see the next few weeks? Just remember that because of Christmas, the weeks are incomplete because we will be at various places.

I decided to delete my last post because I wrote it when I was upset. Usually not a good combination.

I am now 14 weeks along, and am feeling pretty good. I completely missed my last appointment because I could have sworn that it was November 19th, when in reality, it was November 12th. They let me come in on the 19th anyway :) I haven't been too sick, although I have lost it a few times. For the first few weeks I was really tired, then I started feeling sick for an hour or two every morning, then I got better for a month, then I felt sick again. It has been a roller coaster!

The baby should be about the size of a closed fist now, which is crazy! It's amazing how fast the baby grows and develops. I do think that I have felt the baby a couple of times, and that has been neat. Some people are positive that you can't feel the baby until later, but I am sure that I have felt the baby. It will be exciting when Randy can feel the baby too!

I cannot believe that it is already December 1st. Time flies! I am so excited for Christmas, but haven't really had the time to put up our few Christmas decorations. Hopefully we will be able to get a tree that is bigger than one foot in the next few years :)
