Oh, Brother!

Well, today was the big ultrasound and fetus was kind enough to show us the goods.  Come the end of September, Kenzie will have a little brother!!!  I'm so excited and Steve is, too, since he won't be out numbered now :-p  I was about 90% sure and Steve was positive it was a girl. Looks like I won :-)  Kenzie doesn't really understand yet.  She just knows there's a baby in mommy's belly.  I'm sure she will adore him once he's here because she is smitten with my 2 month old nephew.  I'm also excited for my son and nephew to grow up together, being only 6 months apart in age.  I think they'll be best friends, which would be amazing.  I've had his name picked out since before I even got pregnant.  My dad's name is Jack so his first name with be Jaxon (Jax for short) and Steve's dear grandpa, who passed away 3 days before I found out I was pregnant, was named Stanley so that'll be his middle name. He's measuring right on schedule and his heart rate was 141.  We have to have another quick ultrasound in a month because she couldn't see his stomach. Hopefully he was just hunched and hiding it.  
Oh, I'm just so excited!  Here are some of the first 
pictures of little Jaxon. Enjoy :-)


Yep, he's a boy!

Buh-bye Binky & 19 weeks!

I know, I'm like the worst blogger ever!  I've accepted that title.  Anywho, not too much has been going on around here. We don't have the busy lives that every other family seems to have.  The biggest news I have is Kenzie kicked the binky all on her own!  It's been 2 weeks and she hasn't even asked for it.  I thought breaking her would be a nightmare but she made it fairly easy on us.  She has become such a big girl I just can't believe how fast she's growing up.  She's starting to speak in small sentences and she repeats everything we say, which isn't always a good thing :-/

I've been trying to get things ordered and ready for her birthday party next month.  I'm also having a really hard time figuring out what to get her for her birthday.  My parents ordered her a swingset which she already knows about and asks about every day.  We were thinking about getting a sandbox but she's never played in sand before and I don't want it to just sit there and go to waste. I think she'd like it more with other children to play with so we may get that next year when she has a sibling and a 1 year old cousin to play with.  Ah decisions decisions.
In other news, my pregnancy is going well. I've been feeling Little Fetus moving around and Kenzie gives "the baby" kisses every day.  My nausea has finally gone away...until my blood pressure goes up.  I see bedrest in my future.  Good way to spend the summer, eh?  Hopefully I can keep it under control.  I had my first glucose screening a few weeks ago and I must've passed since they didn't call me.  We have our gender ultrasound on May 26th and I really can't wait.  I've tried not to think about it too much and Kenzie has helped keep my mind off of it so this pregnancy is flying by! 
Well, that's about all I have to say for now.  My next post will probably be after my ultrasound. Hopefully I'll have the gender for you :-)
