I have lost a lot of interest in blogging lately. Can you tell? I am not wanting to blog (I think because I don't have a camera. I don't want to brag about my beautiful, amazing daughter without photos to share.) And I am not really reading any ones blogs either. (Sorry, if my lack of commenting offends you. I don't mean to offend.) I have found the camera that I want, but now I just need to talk Randy into letting me buy it. Silly guy! He keeps talking about finances and saving money. All of which are foreign to me! LOL Hopefully when (and if) I get my new camera, I will be back in blog working order! :)

As for the new baby. Things are progressing well. I am now 17 weeks. I went in for my monthly appointment last Monday and the nurse who was checking could not find the baby's heartbeat. No exaggeration here, it took her four plus minutes to find this little buggers heartbeat. The heart rate is 155 beats per minute. So far, this has been a fairly easy pregnancy. I have not hardly been sick at all! Which is fantastic! I have had a lot of headaches and backaches, but I think that is to be expected in any pregnancy. We find out on May 12th (tenatively) what the baby's sex is. I am totally the type of person that needs to know. I figure that you get three surprises in pregnancy. 1. You find out that your pregnant 2. In the middle of your pregnancy, you find out the baby's gender and 3. At the end of your pregnancy, you get the surprise of your little baby. I think #3 is the best surprise of all. I am so stinking anxious to find out what this little baby's personality is and am super excited to see what it looks like! If you are looking to Addison to be a baby predictor, don't! She changes her mind every single day! Today, she wants the pink baby in mommy's tummy to come out.

Here are some pictures (taken by Damma Bef's camera) of my cute little girl. I can not believe how big she is getting. She was sitting in the tub last night and I thought her legs would go on forever. I am so glad she is growing and healthy, but I wish she would just grow a little bit slower than she is.

Addison is showing off our little strawberry garden that we planted. Okay, really she is just showing off the ladybug pinwheel that Damma Bef got her for Easter.
Don't those plants look divine? I am just so proud that something we planted is growing. There may be hope for our garden after all.
Addison just thought she was the bee's knees being on her Papa's new boat. She really didn't want to get down.
We went to the Discovery Museum at the Gateway Mall for Sierra's birthday. Here are a few of my favorite shots of Addison playing. We haven't been to Disneyland yet, but in her mind, this is the greatest place on earth!
She just happens to climb on everything!
And I do mean everything!
Addison and her Mama
Is this not the cutest frog ever? Most kids like to play puppy or kitty, but Addison has always liked to play frog. When she saw this costume, she just had to put it on!
I promise to keep you all updated more often on the goings on around here.

Please also let me know what you think this baby is going to be. Boy or girl? I'd love to know what you think.

What happened to your camera and what are looking at getting?

We went to the Discovery Museum a few months ago and Sarynn didn't want to do anything!! I guess it's not her thing. I'm glad Addison likes it.

Beth said...

I love the updates! Keep them coming!

I don't really care if it's a boy or a girl! I just love grandbabies! More please!

Cute pic's of Addi. I like the Frog pose. I'll bet she wanted to climb all the way to the top of the climbing wall. She is strong.

Addi looks really cute as a frog. I can't believe how big she's getting either.

I think because this pregnancy is so different from Addi's that you'll have a boy.

my baby's heartbeat was 155, and we just found out it's a boy! so based on that alone, i'm gonna say a boy!!

Deon said...

I'm predicting a boy!

Addison looks so cute as her Papa's first mate! Does she ask for rum and say "arrrrggg" a lot lately? :D

Ashley said...

I'm guessing a girl!

That museum looks like so much fun! I need to take Kimball before we move. Maybe we can go together!

Briar - I am really wanting the Nikon Coolpix S6000. It is just a little camera that I will be able to drop in my purse or diaper bag and capture my child(rens) moments.

Ashley - We should totally go to the Discovery Museum before you move. I think Kimball would have a blast there.
