By popular demand

OKAY, against my better judgment I am going to post a belly shot. Here you go...this was taken about 10 minutes ago in my bathroom so forgive the blurriness - everytime I tried to use the flash it reflected off the mirror and disrupted the space-time continuum.

And this is a picture of the belly between 11pm and 2am EVERY NIGHT:

There's a 6:30 in the morning, too??

Man - I slept horribly last night! Our daughter has decided that she is a night owl, and that the best time for an all out internal assault is between 11pm and 2am. So, she kept me up and since Mike had to leave for work this morning at 5:30 (he's qualifying on the gun range today), I relocated to the couch. Then he got up and started getting ready for work at 4:30, so I was awake again. Then he left, and I tried to go back to sleep, but the dogs are so excited that the weather is finally turning nice that they wanted to be all rowdy and play outside. SOOOO...Here I am, posting a blog at 6:30 IN THE MORNING. Barf. Oh well, guess I better get used to the sleepless nights, huh? But, its shaping up to be a good weekend - Mike gets off today at 2(!) and he doesn't have to go back until Monday at 3pm! So its a rare weekend together and we can finally catch up on Netflix and Tivo. (and also work around the house, but that's boring) Anyway, I need to try and get a bit of a nap before I meet Kelley for lunch.

Drum Roll Please..

It's a GIRL!

The doctor is 80% sure that our baby will be wearing pink. Everything looks fine and she's measuring exactly right for her age - a whopping 1 pound, 3 ounces already!

Just checking in

Well, tomorrow's the big day - if the baby cooperates, we'll finally know what color clothes to buy! If not, we'll just have to be surprised in January. I do know that we're cooking up a little athlete in there - he or she is quite an acrobat! It's so cool to be sitting in class and feel little Jr. kicking and wiggling - its a whole lot more interesting than the lecture! The other night Mike was able to feel it too.. I was laying on the couch and he came over and put his hand on my belly and BOOP-BOOP two little kicks in a row! (That's the sound they make in my head.) But, as easy as this pregnancy has been, it's not all wine (or grape juice) and roses... I've only gained 7 lbs but I can really feel it in my feet and legs after I've been standing and walking on the ceramic tile in the house all day! It sucks to wake up in the morning and have your feet STILL hurt from the night before. Of course, I was running around like a madman all day yesterday cleaning house for our Labor Day cookout, so that probably had a bit to do with it. But it was worth it - we had a good time with all our friends. Anyway, just wanted to update real quick for all my stalkers out there (Amber, this means you - and there's no way I'm posting a belly shot on here! I might email you one though.)

Oh yeah - had my first Anat/Phys test today, should get my grade back Thursday. I know I didn't make 100 but I am pretty sure I made an A - keep your fingers crossed, I gotta keep up that 4.0!
