Bad News

I heard back from the intirm evaluator yesterday about where Chris would go to school while the courts figured out where Chris would stay permenantly. He decided it would be better for Chris to stay in Montpelier because their school system has a 4 day week and ours has a 5 day week. And also between his dad's family and my family, Chris has a better support system up there. So we spoke to our lawyer and told him to continue on with the next step. I'm not letting Chris go that easily. So needless to say, yesterday was a hard day. Chris saw me crying and asked me what was wrong. I tried to explain to him that he would have to go and stay at his dad's house for a while and go to school down there. Chris started crying and told me he didn't want to go to school with is dad, he wanted to go here, and stay with me. That was hard. So we're fighting this. Thank you all for be such a good support system for me. I love you all for it.

It's a GIRL!! 16 weeks!

I know the pictures are backwards, but I'm still figuring out all this blog stuff. This is the ultrasound from the mall. If you've had a baby, you kind of have an idea what your looking for. Of course, it's a GIRL!!! If you can't tell by the little writing at the top of the picture or the title of the post. And for those of you who care, there is a little arrow on the right side of the black area that is pointing to 3 lines, which is the proof on it being a girl. We are very excited. Ben was hoping for a boy, but he is just peachy with a girl. He's had fun trying to come up with a name we both like. Thank you all for sharing this with us:)

This is me at 16 weeks. I know, not a lot of difference from the last belly picture, but I'm doing my best to keep everyone updated. It was taken October 24th, 2008. I don't have very much patients so we went to the ultrasound place in the Provo Towne Mall.

We got Chris a roping steer head and rope to practice with. He's been talking about roping for a while now so we decided it was time to let him try it out. He loves it. He's still not very good with it...but he doesn't give up. Even when the rope pinches his hand as he swings it around his head. These were taken Sunday October 19th. Yeah, no snow, no coats, it's been nice. And we are taking it in as much as we can because we know how soon it'll be gone. I'm hoping that it'll last at least until Halloween. It's would be nice to be able to buy a costume you like, not just because it would fit a snow suit well underneath. All the leaves are falling off the trees and it is beautiful. I am so grateful to live in a place as beautiful as this. Our season are magnificent and I can't imagine being anywhere else.

12 Weeks!

Not much to show, but this was me when I was 3 months along, 12 weeks. Ben took the picture for me, and we're going to try to remember to take one every month. Sorry all of my blogs have been about the pregnancy lately. It's a big part of my life right now. Thanks for all of your support.

Baby again:)

Proud are we of our baby. We went to the hospital today to have a crown measurement done to ensure that the baby is where we think he/she is to make sure we have the right due date. We're right on. And we also got this picture in the process. It's fun to see it take shape and have it actually look like a baby. We're really excited and wanted to share with you all.

First baby pictures!

Today was my first doctors appointment. After we got in there and got through the history, Dr. Jackson used a doppler to find the babies heart beat. After a few tries, he had an old ultrasound mechine that is kept there in the office brought in. He wanted to make sure everything was okay. He found the baby and he/she was just a movin and a groovin. The head is on the left and the feet are on the right. We get the nicer ultrasound done on Monday, to check the rump to crown measurement to make sure I'm as far along as we think I am. Which is 13 weeks today, according to the doctors calculations. My due date is April 11, 2009. Ben was so excited to see the baby on the screen. He was almost in a panic when he couldn't find the pictures once we got into the car. He's going to be a great father. We are so blessed to have this blessing coming into our lives.
