19 Week Videos

These are some videos Chad took at our 19 week appointment. If you look carefully, you can see the 4 chambers of Rigby's heart beating.

Here you can see him opening and closing his mouth again...just like the 12 weeks video...does that mean we've got a chatty baby or a sleepy baby??? hmmm... Also, check out how he's wiggling around in there. It almost looks like he's trying to do a somersault!

Usually, I don't like bananas...

As many of you probably know, I don't like bananas. I haven't liked bananas since I was probably about 8 years old. I've tried them in breads, bananas foster, candies etc, but there's just something about them that I don't like.

But, this little banana picture here, represents Rigby's length from head to heel at this exciting half way point. He's weighing in at about 11oz now, and growing right along schedule. So, needless to say, this banana...I adore :)

The secret is out!

Well ladies and gentlemen, I apologize to those of you who have been anxiously awaiting this announcement, but Chad and I have just gotten back from vacation. So, without further ado..............

It's a BOY!!!

For those of you who aren't as knowledgeable about ultrasounds as others...look at the nub in the middle...that's the obvious boy part :) and the nub on top is his left thigh. Imagine he's sitting on the 'camera.' You can only see his little bottom. It's interesting to look at the poll results too! So many people were so sure it'd be a girl! I figured...since all my college girls have girls...someone had to add a boy to the mix!

It's a healthy little baby ______!

Well folks, the verdict is in! We know the gender of our sweet little baby!!!! We got some great pictures at the doctor this morning and knowing the gender helps so much to give our baby more of an identity to us! Everything looks really healthy...the heart, spine, brain, everything is great! We can't wait to share the news with you, but we first want to tell the grandparents.

We'll see Mimi and Poppy tomorrow night and then Grammy? ;) and Grandpa on Thursday morning. We can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Look what Daddy made!

Chad and I searched for a quality bookcase for baby's room, but couldn't settle on anything. The solid wood ones at the "stain it yourself" places were too expensive and the cheapies at Target were the wrong color....so, naturally, Chad decided to just make one! He spent his off Friday getting the materials, drawing plans, and creating the frame.
Then, on Saturday, we both worked hard; me inside cleaning and him out in the garage perfecting is masterpiece! Chad decided to inscribe a message to our little one on the back of the bookcase: "To our baby, the first of many gifts. Love, Dad." So sweet...just watching him write it made me tear up (of course, these days it doesn't take much).

Then, I joined him to begin the staining process and by Sunday, we had a finished bookcase the same color as our nursery furniture...that fit perfectly in the spot we wanted it to!
Isn't is beautiful? I am so proud of my sweet husband...already a great daddy :)

Tomato baby

So this is our baby! ...an heirloom tomato! Now that I'm looking at this tomato, I suddenly want to eat a yummy tomato...is that weird?! :)

We go to the doctor tomorrow to hopefully find out if our little tomato is a boy or girl! It looks like our blog readers are saying that its a girl! Well, we'll all know pretty soon! That is, as long as baby cooperates with us!

I'll have to apologize ahead of time for not posting the news immediately, but we hope to surprise the grandparents when we see them on Wednesday and Thursday, so we'll wait to go public til after that.

I hope to post more pictures soon!
