Only one baby!

Welp, we went to the doctor's today to have our regular checkup and our maybe ultrasound. Chitra said everything looked great, but Mom got us in for an ultrasound "just to be sure" that there was only one baby floating around in there. Sure enough, its just one baby ... one adorable, perfect, cute, skeletal baby that we are so excited to hold in our arms (yeah, I'm crying now)!

Week 15

Welp, pregnancy is getting a little easier. I'm in the rosy second trimester where I'm suppose to feel awesome and energetic...I'm still waiting on the energetic part. We are going to the doctor on Monday for a normal checkup, but Mom says I'm having twins, so we'll maybe have an ultrasound to prove her wrong (again--she called twins with Walker and with K and C's next baby and was wrong both times). Other than that, we're just anticipating the holidays and the crazy two-family rush around.

Andy has decided that he doesn't want anything for Christmas. He just wants to go out of town for a couple days, a new guitar, new Wii games, a new hoodie, and a bunch of other stuff. Coming from the guy who has everything (including at least five guitars already) that's a pretty big list. Santa is NOT that generous!

Baby would like a rocking chair to fall asleep in every night, gender-specific clothes, a dresser to hold his or her clothes, and a new house with more room to play. Can Santa fit all that on his sleigh?

13 Weeks

Week Thirteen
Your infant is about 2.91 inches (7.4cm) and weighs around 0.81 ounce (23gm) - This is about the same weight as 4 quarters.
If you could peek in again you may spot your baby as he begins to practice inhaling and exhaling movements
Eyes and ears continue to move and develop
Baby's neck is getting longer, and the chin no longer is resting on his chest
Her hands are becoming more functional - Your baby may find it comforting to start playing with her fist.
At this point all nourishment is received from the placenta
Me (to a ninth grade class): I'm giving you time right now to work on your homework, so I recommend you take advantage of it.
Boy #1: My mother told me never to take advantage of anything.
Boy #2: Especially girls!
Written on the bathroom stall: SERIOUS STAFF INFECTION IN SCHOOL
Staff member (at staff meeting): Are students allowed to wear shirts with "Pimp" on it or should we write them up?
My principal: Well, you know what they say... Pimpin' ain't easy... so write them up.
