Life: An Update

This morning I had my 20-week ultrasound scheduled. Because of impending bad weather I was nervous about not being able to make it. The Hoos was planning on going with me, but if LP's school was closed, he would have to stay home with her while I went by myself. This would have been fine, but not really the same experience.

Fortunately, the weather was not nearly as bad as projected (hello! meteorologists - you said 3-7 inches of snow, we got rain!). While LP's school still had a 2-hour delay, this did not require rescheduling the appointment or for the Hoos to miss it.

Bun appears to be healthy, happy and very active. The kid did somersaults while we watched.

I know, it is hard to see things in an ultrasound, but at least you get a glimpse. 20 weeks to go!

In other news, last night I handed the Robopanda over to my almost-9-year-old and almost-5-year-old nephews. I will report back and let you know how it goes. My sister-in-law made me promise to take it back if she or they didn't like it.

In even better news, after the Hoos and I got back from the doctor we were enjoying lunch (mmm...falafel) before he headed back to the office. Just as we finished, my cell phone rang. It was Gabby, the lovely lady that cleans my home. She wanted to know if it was okay if she came early - like 1 or 1:15 instead of 3. It was 12:50. Umm...okay, sure. But I guess it is late since I was expecting you last week. Okay, I didn't say that last part, but apparently we need to speak in dates in the future and not DAYs, otherwise we will both continue to be confused.

Anyway, the last 10 minutes of lunch consisted of the Hoos and I running around like crazy people straightening up the house. Whatever, today is a good day.

So is it a boy or a girl?? We took Mikayla to our ultrasound and it helped her realize that she was getting a baby sister. In the car on the way to daycare Mikayla kept asking where her baby sister was and was unsure what I meant when I said she was in mommy's tummy. That night she figured it out. I don't know what she is going to think when the baby comes out of mom's tummy though!

I can not believe you are 20 weeks already. Man, you look fabulous! I love the ultrasound visits, they are the coolest.

Yeah, a clean house and a healthy baby report! Good day! Cool ultrasound photos too!

Yeay, a healthy bun in the oven! I don't know if it's a good or bad thing that I can now quite easily ID those body parts -- after 5 ultrasounds, I feel like a pro!
Hope you're still feeling great. Can't believe you're already at 20 weeks (I'm at 34!!). Where are the pix of YOUR bump?
