4-D Ultrasound - AMAZING!!!

Saturday, Brian and I, along with Terri and Terry, had the opportunity to take a sneak pic at Camden. My mom and Dennis were also able to see it online which was very exciting. I'm so happy that we got to share this exciting experience with all of them.

The 4-D ultrasound was amazing. Camden wasn't very excited about it but we were. Most of the time was spent trying to get him to lower his hands and arms away from his face (see pics#4). At one point he completely turned away from us. We must have interrupted his sleep time! For about the first 10 minutes the lady performing the ultrasound wasn't convinced he was a boy because he wouldn't uncross his legs for her to confirm it. When she asked what our girl name was he quickly uncrossed them and showed us he's all boy!

Here are some pics of Camden. I think he looks like an old man...a cute old man! Only about 15 weeks left before his arrival!

Belly Pics...23 weeks, 1 day

Here are some new belly pics. Again, not the greatest. We took these right before bed, no makeup! Anyway, I finally had a stranger has when I was due. I am so excited that people can actually tell I'm pregnant and not just carrying some extra winter weight!

Things seem to be going well. I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday. Friday, B and I are interviewing a pediatrician and Saturday we are having a 4D ultrasound done. We are both extremely excited about it. I'll be posting some of the pics of Camden this weekend or early next week.

This past week I've been able to actually see Camden kick. It's funny to see my belly bouncing up and down. I've decided he's not actually kicking. Instead, he's practicing his golf swing!

The nursery is coming along. Brian tore up the carpet a couple of weeks ago and spent this evening priming the walls. He's hoping to start painting this weekend! Can't wait.

First, Congratulations to Sam and Brett. They welcomed a beautiful little boy into the world last week. His name is Cooper Dean. I can't wait to meet him!

This past weekend Brian headed to Michigan to visit Tim and to hang out with the guys. At first he wasn't sure he wanted to go but I told him I thought he should. This past weekend is probably the only weekend he's going to be able to get away until next spring. Most of our weekends are booked from now until mid-July and then we will not be traveling because Camden is due August 12th. After he arrives we will be spending our days and nights trying to figure out how to be parents!

Anyway, Brian has great time hanging out with is friends and was named "Best Overall" by a bachelorette party that was at the bar they were at! My hottie husband! As for my weekend...The pups and I drove over to Decatur Friday night and spent the weekend with my in-laws and my nephew Zane (who is adorable by the way). I love the fact that I have such a great relationship with my in-laws. My neighbor seemed confused when I told her my plans for the weekend. She just said, "without Brian?". Anyway, it was a nice relaxing weekend. Saturday, Terri, Zane and I went to a couple places downtown Decatur, had lunch at the course and then she showed me around her school. After that we headed back home for a relaxing evening in. Abbey even stopped by for a visit Saturday night. It was nice.

It was fun playng with Zane and seeing how much he's changed. He's walking much faster than he was just a couple of weeks ago. OH! And I even had the chance to change a stinky diaper! Zane laughed at me the entire time! He must realize I'm a beginner!

Sunday afternoon, I headed home. I picked Hannah up at 4pm. We headed back to the house to grill out. I made burgers while she played with the pups. Winston is finally starting to warm up to her. After lunch we took the pups for a walk and then had some ice cream. I think she enjoyed herself. I know she missed seeing Brian so hopefully he'll be able to hang out with us next time.

New Kids...

I have to share my excitement. If you’re my husband your about to roll your eyes, if your one of my close friends you’re going to start laughing and if your anyone else you’re probably going to think I’m a little weird but...the New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) are going to be on the Today show tomorrow morning and they are coming out with a new CD!

Yes, I am one of “those people” who watch E, and Entertainment Tonight. I like to know what’s going on with my favorite celebrities. And although Brian hates this, it’s also one of the reasons he loves me so much…right honey? So maybe that’s why I’m so excited about this. I’m excited to find out what they’ve been up to over the past 15 or so years. Or maybe it’s because this group brings back so many memories of my childhood. I remember spending countless hours decorating my room with posters of them. I had the sheets, the comforter, and the Joe McIntyre pillowcase. I remember the fun times I had with my Aunt Debbie and mom at concerts and how they would buy me everything with Joe McIntyre on it. I had a ton of those huge pins and wore about 10-15 (big and small) to each concert I went to. One night, I think I was in 6th grade, about 5 of my friends and a parent slept in a minivan at the mall so we could be one of the first people in line to buy tickets to a concert. I remember sitting on my grandma’s porch with the radio listening to their tape (yes, tape) and dancing around. I knew every word to every song and still get excited whenever I hear one of them on the radio. Or maybe I'm so excited because I love pop music and I’m excited to see if their new CD is any good. All I know, is I am looking forward to watching the Today show after work tomorrow. I'm glad we got DVR ; )
