12 weeker.

This marks 3 months! I thought I would include an update since baby is giving me a moment or two away from the bowl.

Yep, that is our little peanut waving in there! While we were watching the sono, the baby looked to be having a dance party!

While at the MD he mentioned that I was 12 weeks exactly, which meant that he measured little peanut to be 2 days ahead of schedule {which technically doesn't mean that my due date of 9/4 changed .. but in my head it did}. Potentially Baby H could appear on 9/2. Umm, and we all know what that means! Momma may have a b-day surprise!

We were also able to schedule the level 2 sono .. which is also the same sono that can determine the baby's gender. Mark the date: April 1, which I hope doesn't include any April Fools shenanigans from Mr. MD.
Provided baby H isn't stubborn like his dad was when he was in utero, which may cause the MD to provide an educated guess on gender - a girl, but really he wasn't a girl (Dyer's mom went into shock when she delivered and what she was told was a girl was actually born a boy).

12 weeks: Baby is just over 2 inches and about the size of a lime. Baby's fingers will soon begin to open and close, and baby's mouth will make sucking movements. Intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into the abdominal cavity about now, and the kidneys will begin excreting urine into baby's bladder.

heart day.

{a card to my valentine, circa. 2004.}
I love you.
You keep the yard nice, and verbally support my habit of buying a million dollars worth of flowers for the yard monthly (even when you do think it is a little silly).
You keep the 'room for the cars' so especially clean, just the way I like it!
You clean when I am feeling a little under the weather. Case and point, sweet baby H.
You sometimes watch girl shows with me .. like America's Next Top Model, HGTV.
You let me watch my shows on the bigger TV in the living room, despite the fact that I got nothing on HD channels.
You always reassure me when I am a 'worry-Wanda.'
You call me sweetheart.
You will drive all over to get me yummy food.
You do laundry and don't mind my 'laundry has to be done a certain way' quirks (.. and there are several!).
You make me smile a mile .. and love me when I'm a 'grumpy-Guss.'
You clean my messes, no matter how gross. (Especially now.)
You always humor me no matter how silly I can be.
You do so many things to make my heart smile.

{*so the card is suppose to look sort of like this. think The Simpsons & ralphy.}
{p.s. i can't help but think that next d & i will have been together almost 7 years AND we'll have a little 5monther to chase after!}

San An.

Several weeks ago (Jan. 17th to be exact) I flew down to San Antonio to see my Great Aunt and Uncle, along with Garner, Michelle, and Jack.

I did not get a load of pics but those that I have, have some pretty cute subjects!

Hope you enjoyed! I always have such a good time in SA, ever since I was little, I wish I could visit more frequently!!

{you may be wondering how BOJ is doing .. well let's just say that baby is keeping me very busy .. but not efficient in any sense of the word. i developed an aversion to most all foods from being sick, including bread, i know it's weird. i wouldn't trade it and i'm assured that baby is doing well in there :) }
