Only 8 more weeks till my due date! I had a midwife appointment this morning and heard the little heart beat. He's still going strong. When she asked me if I've been feeling him move, he gave two good knocks on my belly that she could see, to answer for himself. Oh boy, he's already independent. I weighed in this morning at a whopping 175! Holy Moly, I never thought I'd weigh that much. That's 25 pounds heavier than I've ever weighed and 35 pounds more than when I got started with this special little project. I hopefully won't catch up to Dan's 185. I'm getting pretty close though! I did some prenatal pilates with my niece today, to get the blood pumping a little. It's pretty fun to do prenatal pilates with a 4 year old. of course, she was doing everything better than me and made sure to let me know.
Daddy's getting a new tattoo right now. Mommy can't get them while pregnant, but I plan on getting his name on my arm once he's born. Halen is still the top name in the running, but not definete.
I'll post another picture soon. We recently ordered a new computer which should be arriving shortly. After that, I probably won't be able to get a word out of Dan as he zombies out in front of his new toy. Maybe it'll be good for the blog though, because he'll want to post something finally!
Till next time,

Well Christy had her baby shower yesterday and we got tons of very cool very cute and soon to be very useful stuff. I haven't posted in a while and I'm sorry. Christy has been doing great although I think the weight of the baby is starting to really pull on her back so I get to do lots of back rubs. Probably not enough though. The day is rapidly approaching when the little monster is due and I really cant wait. So many things to think about and so much wonder. You should ask me about it sometime.

well, i don't know if that picture worked or not. we'll see. it's a few weeks old and already my belly has grown more. between my last two appointments, 4 weeks time, i gained 10 whole pounds. whoe momma! the babe and I have completed and passed all of our tests determining whether he's gona be a healthy baby or not. now we just wait. the shower is this weekend. i'm excited. i've got some house cleaning to do though. there will be yummy snacks and even two kinds of cake. mmmm mmmm good. the baby likes cake!
the little monster is moving like crazy. he should be weighing in around 3 pounds by now. i think he's more. he's got my entire belly wobbling around and poking out in weird angles when he moves. sometimes i think he grabs my ribs and shakes them. it's a strange feeling.
like always, i'll try to post more frequently, but probably won't. i think ole daddy needs to get on here and post something about how he's feeling about all this. get to it daddy!
