Pictures from when Emma was sick a few weeks ago.

While Emma was sick she was taking the temperature of her baby Rose. She was very worried about her. The first picture is on our way to the park after she was doing better and she is feeding her baby.

I was able to fix our blog and to be perfectly honest I don't know what I did. I just tried the same stuff I tried before and it worked this time! So when I went back to find my old blog template ( I had to erase it to fix the blog) I found this new one that I absolutely love! I will make a new header to match it soon... If you want to look at the Ultrasound pic look at the temporary blog I made until i can transfer it here @ In the meantime look here for new updates.

So an update:
We are at 21 weeks and we can feel him kicking a lot! He already voices his opinions on how I sleep and sit. I have 19 weeks to go and yet I feel SOOOOOOO big and my belly feels so heavy. Emma gets excited whenever she sees the ultrasound pic and she says "baby brother." She is constantly feeding her doll, teaching her to walk, dressing her, putting her to bed, she is going to love having a little baby! She is getting so big and helpful. A few days ago I was folding her laundry and she picked up her pajamas and went to her dresser an put them in. of course when she pushed them down to close the drawer they were no longer folded! : ) then she came back and got her pants and went to her dresser and since the drawer is higher she stood there and said "help me" then when I opened the drawer she said "Thank You." She is also no longer a vegetarian and is giving meat a chance. I love seeing her grow up and seeing her personality blossom daily.

So we are having a BOY!!! Yes it is the year of the boys.... and one is coming to us! We are so excited. Ryan told me we were off the hook for #3. It doesn't matter now what we have for our 3rd and final child. He looks a little like an alien in this picture and I figure he gets it from Ryan! He is doing very well and is more active than Emma was. i never felt her move at this point but he loves chocolate! : ) Emma is learning to be careful of my belly and she points to it and says "baby." She was also caught kissing the baby in my belly tonight.
We are all very excited.
When I picked Emma up after the ultrasound and I told she is going to have a baby brother she said "baby brother" I asked if she was excited to have a baby brother and she said "yes" then I asked what she was most excited about and she said "play baby brother" I then said are you excited to share your room with your baby brother and she go very quiet and stared at me. She is a very good sharer, she understands taking turns with toys, and always gives other kids a chance, so I think she was wondering how you take turns with your room.
Ryan is most excited to teach his son to play football, and baseball and to have even numbers at home.
I am excited to see my cute boy and and to love him like crazy!
On our poll to the right... the middle name will most likely be keep that in mind and vote for as many names as you want.
These are few more of the photos from the photo session that I used in our header but never posted.

Some of you know this and some of you don't.... we are pregnant with #2. By the time most of you read this ( Friday) we will be at 12 weeks pregnant. We are very excited and so grateful to be having another one.

For anyone who wonders Emma is already gearing up to be a big sister... She loves to feed her babies and play itsy bitsy spider with her babies. When she sees other babies she is always helpful in terms of bringing them toys, bottles or pacifiers.... So far I think we will have it pretty good. Although the two's seem to be starting early she is fascinated by babies. But we have 6 months and things could change.

As for me, I have not nearly been as sick as I was with Emma. I have felt a almost constant feeling of nausea, but i have only thrown up a few times. However, I am always starving and NOTHING sounds good to me. I can't eat any food I prepare with meat in it, seeing it raw puts me over the top. So it is up to Ryan to cook the meat, or for us to eat out. But the last couple weeks i can eat meat as long as i didn't touch it raw. My choices on what to eat at home are limited and food is getting sooooo boring. Also I am SOOOOOOOOO exhausted! I feel so lazy, but I am just so tired.

As for Ryan, he is not having many symptoms, he is just dealing with the headache of me not being able to eat and felling gross all of the time. But he does it with a wonderful smile on his face! He is excited and not nearly as scared as he was with Emma. He really seems to like his new job, but we are both a little worried as the baby will be born during his busy season.

The ultrasound below is upside down.... but you can see the head on the bottom, the body and the beginnings of limbs. This ultrasound was done at exactly 8 weeks. Like I said we are 12 weeks now so I know the baby looks very different now. The baby is due February 21st!

I love this look on her face.. thinking about what she can get away with next!
Sleeping with all her babies... Baby anna, baby lexi, Doggy and baby Elmo. She would lay down and pull them all on top of her!

Train ride in Leadville

Emma started saying train and Choo- choo on this trip. While we were driving if she saw a trian she would say Choo-choo. SHe got so good at it, because all she had to do was see the train tracks and she would say choo-choo. When we oulled up to this train she got excited and when we told her we were going on it she about jumped out of her carseat!
