Skeletor

Well, it's been FAR TOO LONG since my last post. And a lot has happened, actually, which is frankly unusual. Generally if I haven't written in my journal for a while (which, incidentally, I haven't), it's because nothing of note has happened. In this case, though, I've neither blogged nor written in my journal because so MUCH has been happening that I've just gotten overwhelmed by the idea of playing catchup. And I still am, so rather than updating on everything, I'll just share the MAJOR news: I'm pregnant!! 21 weeks already, so I've REALLY put this entry off. We went in last week and found out it's a little boy! We're thrilled, of course, and stressed out trying to get everything in order. Mostly just giddy, though, I think.
Here are some pics from the ultrasound:




And for now, Tyler's dubbed the baby Skeletor. Why, you ask? Well, that's a reasonable question. It's because so far the baby's face hasn't fleshed out, so in the ultrasound his face looks, well, skeletal:


And I think I'll end this there. Next time maybe I'll share the monthly pics of my growing belly. And hopefully some pictures of the baby's room. :)

yeah for a new post!!!!!

Ooo, yes! I want to see pics of the baby's room.
And... I'm glad you're pregnant. Although now I don't have anything to use to deflect the baby-hungry pressure from me. With the Hutchisons, it's, "oh, we don't want to have a baby before Scott's sister [who's been married for about two years, now]."

Thanks, guys! Well, James, there's no pressure from us, at least, so don't worry on that front. Besides, we waited almost SIX WHOLE MONTHS before we got preggers, so you've got a little bit of time still to deflect. :)

Jamie said...

Yeah... six whole months... um... yeah. Yesterday at work I was talking about how since I was dehydrated I was feeling sick to my stomach, and then I was reflecting how that just leads to pregnancy comments. Sigh.

Well, I gathered as much from Facebook, but still, congrats. And don't stress about things too much. It's not really worth it. I learned that after I had Abigail. I stressed way too much about lots of stuff, and it was only making life miserable for me, and everyone around me. Good thing Carl is so great. A great store, at least here, is Once Upon a Child. It's second-hand, but the prices are really good (usually). It's a franchise though, so maybe our store is just super great, and other ones, not so much. Kari hasn't had too much luck in Reno. But it is a good place to go to try to find baby stuff, especially the toys, swings, strollers, etc. Just not car seats.

Thanks for the tip on Once Upon a Child. I went to the website, and it looks like the nearest one is 100 miles away in Tennessee! I guess we'll just have to see what we can find here. We're actually doing pretty well finding the big items, to far. Friends and Craigslist have been very helpful. :)

A Boy! So great!! Congrats! I know he and you both will have a great time. Having a little boy was so good for me. Exciting news, thanks for sharing!
