The title says it all. Today my little family went to the Doctor with me for my Ultrasound. The baby wasn't moving much and was being way too modest for our liking!! We couldn't find anything to prove it was a boy, so we are going with "? GIRL", which is what the Doc put on the picture of the Ultrasound. Now some of you already know, but with my son, they had said "Well there's nothing flapping in the wind, it's a girl!" yet much to our surprise it was a boy come my labor day!! Sooooo...now it is just a wee bit frustrating that we get a "? GIRL". My two older sisters recently found out that they are having girls, and I've felt from the beginning of this pregnancy that it's a girl, but now to know for certain, we'll have to wait 8 more weeks when they do the 3-D Ultrasound. (I figure if they can't tell from a 3-D picture, we've got a problem!) I'm still assuming it's a girl though, and when I buy outfits, they will be ruffly (and I will keep the receipts just in case)!!! After calling my mom and sisters, my sister Tami let me know that I should drink juice (because of the sugar) to get the baby moving. That info is better late than never, so I'll make sure I do that right before the next ultrasound!!! If I had a reliable scanner I would put the ultrasound pics up...maybe when I'm really bored I'll take digital pics of them to get them posted!?
I think my son is a little upset that he may not be getting his "Superman baby boy"...I think he'll get over it when the baby is born though. He loves to look at babies. Tyler thought it would be a boy and I said a girl, so we made a friendly wager on it. :-) Whoever is right, gets an extra $400 from February's tax return to themself!! So far I'm winning...hahahahaha!!! If at the next ultrasound they say it's a girl, he'll probably accuse me of bribing the Doc. Eh, he can't admit when he's wrong :-)

Now to all of my friends who read my blog...I will try to repent and update this blog more often, and I enjoy reading all of your blogs very much, and especially seeing pictures, so keep up the good work!! (yes that was a very bad run-on sentence, but I don't think I have to tell any of you that I'm not perfect, hahaha!!)

Don't the experts say that when you are dreaming, you aren't in the deep sleep that gives you the rest you need? I could be wrong, but I believe that's what they say. Ever since I became pregnant again, I've had the most impossible time sleeping. I wake up about 3-4 different times in the middle of the night, for no apparant reason (well of course sometimes it's for the pregnant nightly potty break...but the other times I can't account for). Lately I've also been having tons of nightmares. Now when I was pregnant with Cayden, I used to dream and have some nightmares, but not as many as I've been having lately. One night I dreamt about this HUGE snake that was trying to catch me, and another night it was about some people I know getting into a car accident. Three nights ago, I had a dream that while I was pregnant, I got a huge tummy tattoo (then I sat around with Nicole Richie and asked her if you are supposed to avoid tattoos while pregnant)!!! It was a psychotic dream all around. Not only do I not have any intentions of getting a tattoo, but I KNOW you aren't supposed to get one while pregnant, not to mention, who gets a tattoo on their STOMACH??? You'd be looking to have that thing all deformed by the time you'd had a few kids, from it stretching out....then shrinking...etc. My husband thought it was a pretty amusing dream though :-)
Two nights ago something was different though. Tyler and I ordered a Dippin Strips pizza around 9 p.m. while we played golf on our play station (that's our favorite game). Somehow I managed to match Tyler by eating my entire half of the pizza (he gets his w/out cheese...weird I know). I never can eat that much pizza...so I was actually slightly proud of myself, although you really shouldn't be proud of yourself for eating badly!? Anyway...I was so full but it felt good, and that night I slept through the ENTIRE night. I didn't wake up until the alarm clock went off!!! So...I'm wondering if it was because my tummy was so full so the baby was happy??? Maybe I wake up in the middle of the night because I don't put enough in my tummy before bed?? I find that hard to believe because Tyler and I are big late-night snackers. Pizza is such a comfort food though....mmmmm I love it.
Anyway...that was a big post about nothing, but any insight would be great. I don't think it's a good idea for me to be eating half a pizza every night just so I sleep better, HAHAHA...I mean, not if I don't want to gain 100 lbs during this pregnancy, and have a baby that's unhealthy and addicted to pizza!!!!!!!!

I am officially 8 and a half weeks pregnant now! I already feel it's going to be a girl, partly because how completely different my morning sickness has been this time around!! We've been worried about if I'd be able to carry this one, so we're so happy to be past 7 weeks, and can't wait to be through the 1st trimester. We weren't planning on quite this big of an age gap, but the Lord works in his own time and after so much praying we are just so grateful!!
Well right now I'm debating whether to do the dishes (not very tempting when you don't have a dishwasher at the moment) , and watching the rest of Goonies with my kids while crocheting (Cayden loves the end when Sloth pulls off his shirt to reveal a SUPERMAN shirt underneath)!! Hmmm, my husband won't be home for a couple more hours...and as he sometimes says...why do now what you can do later?? Ya I know, a terrible saying to live by, but it works for right now!!

Here are some pictures of a trip that me and the kids took in June. Somehow we survived the trip!! Tyler had to stay and work so me and the kids packed up the car and drove from Texas to Washington!! It took us 3 days to get to Moses Lake. Luckily we were able to stop each day after driving anywhere between 8-10 hours...because I'm fortunate to have so many sisters and they all lived in perfect distances to where we were able to visit each of them on the way up to Moses and spend the night!! (Shaylee is 6 and Cayden is 2...they did really well though!)
Before leaving Moses Lake, the trip wouldn't have been complete without stopping at the pet store and bringing home a PET!! When my little sister Nicole and I saw this puppy, I fell in love. I text messaged a picture of the puppy to my husband and he loved it too so it made the LONG trip back with us. Her name is Missy, she is 3/4 boxer, 1/4 lab and is an extremely active puppy and it's just been a blast house-training her, haha. When we brought her to her new home, she took up residence in Cayden's booster chair. She is now already about twice as big as she was in these pictures so she doesn't sleep in it anymore...she hogs our bed at night instead!!
Shaylee is soaking up the sun at the Aquatic Center
Cayden isn't too sure about the new puppy yet!
Shaylee on the other hand, is CRAZY about the pup!
I challenged my sister to Dance Revolution but we didn't have enough coins soooo...I ended up looking like a goober doing it all by myself!!
Go Grandma!! Shaylee and her Aunt Nicole are watching the pro!
I'm giving my son a few pointers
We visited my dad's new headstone on Father's Day
