Ultrasound, Week 12 Day 6

I had a doctor’s appointment today to hear the heartbeat of the baby, but since I’m still early on and not really showing yet, they couldn’t guarentee they’d be able to find the heartbeat. Well, the doctor tried and tried but couldn’t find it today so sent me on to get an ultrasound.

Well we knew why she couldn’t get a heartbeat to show up  immediately in the ultrasound! Apparently I have a gymnast/dancer in there! The baby did somersault after somersault and then turned its back on us and did a little booty dance! HA! It was so funny, the tech and I were just laughing and laughing. Baby Harris did NOT stop the entire time! This has been the most amazing experience ever… I am so not what I thought I would be like when I’m looking at that little stinker moving and grooving. I got all misty-eyed and smiley the rest of the day!

Enjoy these pictures of Baby Harris- they will be the last before we know if he/she is a he or a she!

ultrasound022ultrasound023Sorry if the pictures are a bit blurry, it is the best she could do with all the squirming. One thing I LOVE about our doctor is that they have a 52′ flat screen tv that you can watch while they do ultrasounds, but the bad thing is that the pictures are never as good as what it looks like on there!

I’m going to leave you with one last picture. I woke up this morning looking straight at this instead of Andy, so I grabbed my phone from the bedside table and took the picture. She really thinks she’s a person!

California, baby, engagements, etc

We had a wonderful time in California over the first five days in July! The weather was absolutely perfect and it was so gorgeous over on the west coast! I put pictures up on the “pictures page” (tab at the top of the page). Enjoy!

I had my second doctor’s appointment on Tuesday. It went really well and everything is still fine. I got to see my new doctor (the old one is leaving) and I really loved her. We have an ultrasound the first of August and Andy will be able to come to it!

I’d like to say a big CONGRATS! to my sister-in-law, Ashley on her engagement! We are so excited for her and Drew and can’t wait to enjoy the wedding sometime next spring. (Ashley, the baby told me he/she is excited about coming too! haha!)

I am currently trying to plan a “babymoon” for Andy and I to go on before the baby gets here. I thought I’d have a hard time talking into Andy this, but he jumped right on the idea. We’re thinking of going somewhere in the Caribbean for a four day weekend or something. We’re going to use that as our Christmas gift too. Neither one of us want or need a thing so I’d rather just take a trip and buy stuff for the baby instead at Christmas. 

Lately, and probably a lot because of the miracle of this little baby growing inside me (so weird!), I have been feeling so beyond blessed. When I think about how our life has progressed along these past five years, I cannot help but feel so overwhelmed with thankfulness of how our lives have been blessed. God has always provided for us and has had such good timing with everything in our lives. Andy and I always said we wouldn’t think about having a baby until we were married five years because we wanted at least five to enjoy together before having a baby. Well, how funny that the week after our fifth anniversary we find out we’re expecting! Just one of those things that makes you know God is always in control, and as they say, has a sense of humor!

things coming up!

Andy and I had a great time in Dallas! The hotel, ALOFT, was so so nice and the weather was perfect (if not a little cold!). I’ll post pictures of the trip soon.

My Mom and her two sisters came up this past weekend and it was such a fantastic time! We shopped, ate, visited, and thats pretty much it! We headed up to the Shreveport area on last Saturday to visit with my mom’s first cousins and aunt. I had only met them one other time so I was glad to be able to go see them.

This weekend we’re heading to Mississippi! We’re going to stop by Starkville to see some friends, then heading to New Albany on Sunday to spend time with my family. I couldn’t be more excited! We just don’t get together enough and when we do get together its always, ALWAYS!, such a fun and wonderful time. On Sunday night we’re going to set up camp down by creek and spring on my precious grandparents’ land and camp out! Its always a bittersweet experience to go back to my grandparents’. Its just that I want them to be there too, its not the same without them and their sweet smiles and wonderful laughs.

The last weekend in May, Andy and I are heading up to TN. My precious “little” niece, Jacy, has her big final dance recital of the year and we’re heading up to see it! I haven’t been able to go to her spring/summer recital since we’ve been married, so I am really ready to see her do what she loves so much. I am so proud of her!!!!

As you can tell, things are starting to pick up for us. We’ve still got a trip to CA coming up and other things as well. I’ll share pics next week of Dallas trip and Memorial camping trip!

Up & Running!

After everything that could possibly go wrong with trying to create this website happened, we FINALLY have it up! We’re so glad that our family and friends from West to East Coasts will be able to easily see what is going on in our (sometimes boring!) lives. We’re still adding on pages and pictures (etc) so be patient with us! Any and all suggestions for the site are welcome. We love and miss you all!

Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!
