Our sweet baby's 4D ultrasound was today and I have to say Baby H is already the cutest thing I've ever seen! The baby was giving us quite a performance today, with a SMILE, yawn, sucking, and eye blinking. Baby H is also quite limber with his/her feet up near the face (maybe there's a cheerleader in there). In one ultrasound picture, you can see the foot up near the face! The most important thing is that the baby is healthy and measuring right on time, with an estimated 3 lb 8 oz. I also included a pic of the "coming home" outfit. Chris asked me where the boy's outfit was when I showed it to him! It is quite feminine, but I thought I'd a blue hat or pink headband for either a boy or a girl =)
We just got back from a week long family vacation,with my fam, at Santa Rosa Beach (near Destin) and it was absolutely perfect. Our beach house was so cute; each room was a bright tropical color! No rain and beautiful sunny skies for 7 days! The heat index somedays was in the 110's, so you can bet that I spent a lot of time under my umbrella. Chris and I had in our minds that this was our last relaxing vacation, so we literally sat on the beach all day with a book and umbrella. It doesn't get better than that for me! Yes, I wore my bikinis and loved it! It felt so free having my pregnant stomach hanging out! My pregnant skin was a lot more sensitive in the sun, especially my stomach. It was very strange! Chris and all the guys in my fam went deep sea fishing one day and Chris caught a 3o lb. amberjack that took 15 min. to reel in. He was so proud! They caught so much fish that we'll be eating it for a year! The girls spent a day at the outlet mall and I got some good baby deals, including the coming home outfit! It was fun spending the week w/ the fam and chillin' on the beach! Now back to reality!
For all of you that know me, know that I must get my "Savannah fix" every few months. So...we went this past weekend with Brenda and Melissa, Chris' mom and sister. We had a wonderful time and had perfect weather! Brenda had never been to Savannah, so we ate at Paula Dean's restaurant, took the city trolley tour, and the ghost tour of course. We enjoyed looking at the gravestones at the Colonial Park Cemetary b/c many had been changed by soldiers during the civil war and some people even died before they were born. The pic I attached shows a boy who died at age 11, his wife died at age 17, and his son died at age 12 (just a few days after his dad). Figure that one out!
We got married May 2005 and are living happily ever after. We love living out in the country and have learned to enjoy the simple things in life. I am a nurse in labor & delivery and Chris is a firefighter. We have a beautiful little girl, Ella, and new sweet little boy, Hayden. We are blessed with a wonderful life and good family and friends!
