Sorry for the delay in our blog writing. It seems we have been extremely busy lately.

This past weekend, Ryan went to OC to help watch the kiddos while Kim and I spent the weekend shopping in Des Moines. We had a lot of fun finding good deals! I did some Christmas shopping, and I got some new maternity clothes that actually fit. As soon as I got home and walked in the door, Ryan said, "I'm not ready to have a 2 year old and a 10 month old." :) I think the guys were a little exhausted by the end of the babysitting weekend!

Ryan and I are really looking forward to spending time at home this weekend. Plans are to clean and organize the garage. And do report cards!

Today Katie and I met with our doctor to go over the ultrasound results. (We had to wait from Thursday, through the weekend, and all the way till Tuesday to find out if our baby is healthy-wowzer!) Anyway, worries can go out the door. In our doctor's words, "The baby is very symmetrical." It wasn't exactly the good news I thought I was listening for, or at least not how I thought I would hear it, but good news it is. Happy Happy Happy! Our baby is healthy, and his/her femurs are the same size too :) I guess that is all for now. Praise be to God for his countless blessings.

20 Week Ultrasound

Ryan and I went in for our ultrasound on Thursday. We had no plans of finding out what we are having, which was good since the baby was not very cooperative. :) The little stinker was flipped over on it's tummy, so we weren't even able to get a great picture of the face. We have another ultrasound at my mom's clinic the end of this month, so hopefully we can get those pictures. This one will also be videotaped, which we are very excited about.

As far as we could tell, the baby appeared healthy, but we go back to the doctor on Tuesday for the official ultrasound report.

This weekend is a relaxing weekend for us. We have no big plans, except to enjoy the extra sleep and time together.
