I'm Ready!!!

We got to see our baby boy last week via ultrasound! We were lucky enough to get a 3d ultrasound done and see his beautiful face!! I can't believe how clear his face looks, it just amazes me!

We were a little nervous in the beginning! The little stinker wouldn't perform for us, we had to move him all around and even have other ladies come in and hold my belly so we could get some profile shots and keep him from moving all around! The poor guy was sitting breech (no wonder why my damn ribs hurt so bad), we could see that he had his legs up above his head and was still able to keep his arm over his face too. Thank God for technology because the technician was able to fade the umbilical that was also over his face. In the end we were so happy with the pictures. I think we're having another baby that's going to look like John. Apparently my genes just aren't strong enough for our kids!

(Look at those fingers, we got to see pics. of his hands quite a bit)

Of course after having this done it makes me even more excited to finally meet my little boy. He's for sure been quite active these days and perhaps just as excited to meet us too. I know Addison has been amazing with the whole situation, she includes Brody in all of her conversations and while she's playing she says "this is for Brody, this is for mommy, this is for daddy and this is for Addison", I'm hoping those sharing thoughts continue once he arrives. She's already talking about how he can't put her toys in his mouth! ;o) Seriously could I be anymore blessed?

I keep telling John he can arrive anytime after I get back from Michigan, I'm so tired of being uncomfortable and feeling soooo big. Of course since I want him to arrive early he'll make sure to be late just like Addison. Either way I know the next 10 weeks are going to fly, I keep telling myself to hang in there and don't be greedy. IT'S HARD!!!!!!!!!!!

I found Addison's 3d ultrasound pictures, its a little crazy because we got both kids done at 28 weeks...can you tell which one is which (w/o looking at the dates)??

It's Our Anniversary!!!

I have no idea where the time has gone!! John and I are celebrating our Anniversary today...8 years which is even more shocking. I remember meeting my amazing husband when I was 16 and he was 18 like it was just yesterday. I'm honestly the luckiest woman that he chose me to be his wife. John is for sure one of a kind, I would never compare him to other men (except for when he decides to do something out of the ordinary, then he gets the comparison) because he has always been that one guy who stood out and was different than any other guy I've ever been with. This is exactly why over 10 years ago while I was away at college I decided to reach out to him and see how he was doing. Ever since that call both of our lives have changed forever!!

Its true what they say "marriage takes a lot of work"! With very few real fights but lots of bickering we continue to figure this whole marriage thing out as the years go by. While nobody can have the perfect relationship, I must say I'm pretty darn happy and feel we're pretty close to what I consider perfect.

John, Thank You for always making me #1 and for showing me everyday that I am the most important person in your life. You always make me feel fuzzy inside and put the biggest smile on my face. I am so honored to call you my husband and can't thank you enough for this beautiful life we share.

8 years later with a beautiful 3 year old little girl and a baby boy on the way what more could I ask for? John is why I can say "Life is Great"!!
