Back to June

I had my sonogram today, and by the measurements it showed that I am at 13 weeks, so I guess the due date is back to June 22nd. We'll see what the doctor says in January. It was so cool to see our little one moving around in there and weird at the same time because I can't feel it yet. He/She was very active and we could see the tiny arms and legs moving all around. What an awesome miracle! It definitely is more real to me now!

Family Shopping Day

Chris, Kinley, and I went to Peoria Saturday with Chris' Mom and Dad, and his two sisters and their families. It was quite an adventure. I voted NOT to go back to Peoria next year since I will have a nursing baby and the mall's bathroom there didn't even have a changing station let alone anywhere to nurse. Kinley and I had a little fiasco to get him changed without anywhere to lay him down. We are starting to work on potty training, but we're not ready for public bathrooms yet! Other than that the day was pretty good, although unless you're looking for clothes the mall didn't have very many neat shops. We ate supper at Chili's which I always enjoy, but Chris got a migraine and sat in the van the whole time waiting, throwing up randomly. I ended up driving home as well as there and was exhausted by the time we got home. I had a hard time staying awake listening to Chris snore and Kinley make his little sleeping noises. We did get to see the festival of lights which was neat and Kinley loved it. I tried to take pictures but they didn't turn out. I guess it was a pretty hectic day, but fun to spend it with family.

Dr. Time

Well, I had my first doctor's appointment today. It really wasn't too eventful. I do have a tentative due date of July 11th, but I am going to have a sonogram done to see for sure since my cycles are just craziness. I have to say I shaved my legs for this and then didn't even have to get examined . . . I'm not complaining! Sometimes I wonder if I'm really pregnant I have felt so good with this one but then I remember getting up to pee at 3am every morning and how tired I am in the afternoons. It actually reassures me.
A sweet after thought . . . on the way to the doctor today Kinley was singing to himself and what I caught of it was "baby Jesus" la la la. It was a really cute moment, and I'm pretty sure he was making it up himself because I've never sang him a song about baby Jesus.
Hope everyone is having fun preparing for Christmas!
