Poor Puppy...

This is Mylie's sister, Madison. She lives with her daddy, Corona. Her owner, Mary, just sent me these pictures. I guess Madison jumped out of her arms and landed on a parking stub, breaking her femur bone. She went to the doctor and they put a cast on her leg, but I guess it wasn't healing so she needed surgery. Now she has pins in her leg while it heals. Mary said that she is feeling much better and running around with her cast on.
They signed her cast! Too Cute.

Our Little Secret...

Today we went to the doctor to find out the gender of our baby. We now know whether we will be parents to a son or daughter. After our appointment we got a 3D/4D ultrasound, performed at a different location, where the gender of our baby was definitely confirmed. It was the most anticipated and surreal moment of my life so far. I couldn't believe it was finally me and that it was finally us going through these unforgetable moments. I have been waiting for this my whole life. Everything in my pregnancy has changed now that I can add one more piece to the puzzle of what our little baby will become. Now we can say "she" or "he" instead of referring to the baby as "it". We can say its name out loud too, but we have to be careful not to slip before Christmas. Keeping this secret will be harder than I thought. Check out the pictures and videos from today.

Another Big Move...

Today we got the call that we've been waiting for. Paul received news that he has been chosen to work at the Border Patrol Headquaters in Washington DC. We are very excited and anxious to move so we can get settled in before the baby arrives. We don't know all the details yet, but it sounds like we should be moving out there very soon.

Here is a current picture of my baby bump. I look a little more round compared to a couple of weeks ago. We are still crossing our fingers that we will find out the gender of the baby this friday. We also already have names picked out, but everyone has to wait until Christmas to find out the gender and the name!!
This is an update to Paul's birthday. After many failed attempts to order his gift online, we finally found his Ohio State dartboard while visiting family in Columbus. Paul hand-crafted a wooden backboard to protect our wall from the darts. He measured, cut and painted the Ohio State logo in just one day.

My Baby Bump...

Today I am 13 weeks 4 days pregnant and a lot has changed for me in the last five days. All of my books say that when you get to the second trimester you feel so much better and have a boost of energy.... boy is that true. I finally have my appetite back (which I don't know if that is a good thing because I haven't gained any weight so far) and I actually feel like going places. My body is changing too. All of my family and friends know that I am not the smallest person so it is hard to tell but I actually have a baby belly now. I have already bought some maternity clothes and they are so comfortable. I can't believe I am actually doing this, but below is my first belly picture. I know that I must look much farther along than almost 14 weeks. Oh well. Anyway, Enjoy!
