a little wave

Peanut decided to wave at us this morning. He/she was moving and flipping all around. Everything looks good, so they will do the big reveal ultrasound next visit. We aren't going to find out, or we might and just not tell anyone. Ha Ha that would be fun!!!

just arrived...

Look what just arrived on my door step...safely. I am very excited about this new "book." I have heard so many people go on and on about it. No, it is not a another cookbook to add to the collection. It is a book. A beautiful book with beautiful pictures, words, and yes beautiful food. Yes, Ryan we did just send a box of cookbooks to Salvation Army, but this one is different, I promise. I promise to share any recipes that I find shareworthy. No, Maggie did not chew up this package. We did manage to chase down the big brown truck and convince the delivery lady to put packages inside the storm door. This package didn't quite make it inside the door. But Maggie held off her temptation, thank goodness. I do need to post some pictures of the Merrill shoes she did manage to get a hold of. Do you think she knows that things might be changing in a few months???

Favorite moment of 2009...

was hearing peanut's heartbeat!!! That's right, WE'RE PREGNANT!! I know many of you never thought this day would come. Yes, we finally decided to start our own little family. Little peanut is scheduled to arrive around July 7th and we are very excited.

Things are going good so far. The first trimester consisted of 24 hour nausea, eating lots of cold fruit, a short stint of bed rest, and regularly scheduled Wednesday night trips to hang my head over the toilet. Thank goodness the nausea stopped just in time for Christmas! I am very thankful to be eating normal and cooking dinner again. I hadn't cooked a meal since Thanksgiving and I think Ryan was getting a little tired of fishing through the pantry every night.

I am going to try to post more often this new year. There were so many things that happened last fall that I just didn't take the time to post, and more than anything I want this to be a journal of our life that we can look back on. So one of my goals for the new year is to try to post once a week.

We go back for another ultrasound in about 2 weeks and I can't wait to see how much peanut has grown and hear that little heartbeat!
