20 Week Ultrasound

Today we had our 20-week ultrasound! Tom and I just LOVE seeing our little one. We did not find out the sex of the baby; we like the surprise. However, the technician said that even if we wanted to find out we probably would not have been able to; the baby was sitting “Indian Style”. From the 45 minutes that we spent looking at our little one we discovered that we have another talker and active baby…yikes. She was never able to get a good look at the feet because he/she kept moving and then when we were looking at his/her face; that mouth was just a moving!

Some details: the heartbeat was at 146/minute (normal is between 120-180). The size of the baby is actually putting me at an earlier due date (5 days earlier) to June 7th. He/she weighed 13oz (at this time they are supposed to be under a pound). We will have to go back in 4-6 weeks for another ultrasound because as of right now I have Placenta Previa (the placenta is covering my cervix); if the placenta does not move I will have to have a C-section

18 month check-up

Above: Sawyer fell asleep while eating his lunch - notice his hand still on his plate ;)
Below: The boys eating breakfast while mommy was at the gym. Yes we do have a booster seat for Sawyer but I guess no booster seat for a breakfast of just men ;)

Sawyer had his 18 month check-up today and he is getting big! He now weighs 27 lbs 2 ounces (75%) and is 34 inches tall (90%). His head is 49 cm (90%); he has a lot of brains!!! He is cutting all four of his "eye" teeth at the same time. We also found out that he has a little ear infection in his right ear...poor guy.

Christmas Preparation

Craft Time = Sawyer is painting and making Thank You cards for his Christmas presents.

Who needs new toys when you have mommy's kitchen utensils?

Daddy adding the eggs for Jesus' Birthday cake.

Sawyer dumping in the mix (no homemade cake this year - mommy wanted to go simple).

The batter...our favorite part!
