Night owl

A mother’s joy begins when new life is stirring inside… when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone.

Baby has started kicking like crazy around 10:00 pm every night and continues for hours.  My dad said that means he or she is going to be a night owl… Mom says, with a twinkle in her eye, “What goes around, comes around!”  Haha, oh man are we in for it if that’s the case.  Ian’s parents say he was such a happy, easy baby.  Me, on the other hand… not so much.  I didn’t let my parents sleep for the first four years of my life, and even still today- I hate sleeping.  I’m really hoping and praying the baby takes after Ian sleep-wise (and  if baby inherits his bright blue eyes, that wouldn’t be so bad, either 😉 ).  I slept in until 9:00am this morning-first time in 5 months I have slept past 6:30- after the oh-so-supportive comments from my parents, haha.  Maybe I’ll try to actually get some sleep while I still can.

Exactly two weeks from today we have our anatomical ultrasound.  I am so nervous- I’m praying everyday that he or she looks as perfect as he feels in my belly, and hopefully, if  baby cooperates, we will be able to find out if we are going to be having a little prince or princess.  Ian is going to do his best to video the appointment so we can share it with you all.

  1. Hey Honeys!! Since it’s baby making season for everyone I know I thought I’d extend the offer to assist with any nursery antiquing.

    My step-father-Ed runs a mission that operates a thrift store and the area I work in downtown has like 3 antique shops. I could always send you pics of fun stuff that I run across and I won’t even bother unless it’s a reasonable price.

    If you guys have a little chicka i’m gonna flip! No really EVERYONE I KNOW is having a little girl. My GF Lyndie-Emma coming July 6ish, GF Christy- Gabriella August 4, Matt’s Best Friends Wife Little GIRL Julieanne in like a month too!!!

    So there are hand me downs to be had for new born stuff cause from what I hear they fly through that size!!!! No time to muck it up!

    Miss you guys and think about you often!
