~Dr. Visit #5, Too Much Waiting~

Well we had our Dr. Visit yesterday afternoon. I had to change my appointment from the date that I picked out on Feb. 22. I had it scheduled for March 25, which was this past Tuesday, but while I was making the calendar for work, I realized that there would be someone else out that day. So a month ago, I called and changed my appointment to Thursday the 27th. I meant to call and check on it before I left Ruston, but I never got to it. As I was checking in for the appt., I was told that they had me for Tuesday not Thursday. I should've known better. But she called back to see if they would still see me and they did, she told me "It will just take a while". Of course. I would be sitting there waiting until 5:00 anyway, of course it will be a while. Whew!! Ok, so I go to the back to do the usual, blood pressure and all that jazz, and then I have to come back and wait again. I waited an hour until 4:30, they called me back and then I sat in the little room until 5:20. Wow, that's a lot of waiting. And I only saw the Dr. for about 5 min, and I was outta there. She had a hard time at first getting his heartbeat because that little dude was all over the place kicking and moving. He's extremely active, except in the mornings, he gets that from his mommy on weekdays and his daddy on the weekends. She said that everything sounded good. And then she measured my belly. I didn't even ask "just how big" it was. I kinda have an idea, especially when Chris laughs at me trying to get off my couch! But he better watch it, he's pushing 5 months himself. So all in all, the visit was good, the wait was BAD. But that's ok, before long, they will be over and we'll have Noah's visits. My next visit is my sugar test for gestational diabetes. Hopefully everything will be ok. Otherwise big momma will be on a drastic diet. Yuck!! We are ending our 23rd week. Sunday we will in the 3rd Trimester. Whew that freaks me out. A little over 3 months left! Have a good weekend. I have nothing planned and I can't wait!

~Easter 2008~

What a beautiful weekend. We could not have asked for a more beautiful Easter. On Saturday, we got together with the House side in Bossier for Grandaddy's birthday. It was great seeing everyone. And to all the uncles and dad....the fish was GREAT! While we were in Bossier, we picked up the bedding that we will be using for Noah's room. We love it and can't wait to get the room finished. After church this morning, we went to do Easter with all of Chris' neices and nephews. We hid 55 eggs, and somehow never found around 10. They must've been hid good. I hope they didn't have money in them. Enjoy our Easter pics. Have a great week.

~Full of Life~

In case you haven't noticed, our blog has been made-over. A friend of mine is getting into the blog/header makovers, and offered to play around with mine. I love it. She did a great job. This past weekend, I joined my sisters for a trip to Jackson for a cousins wedding. I've decided that I need to invest in a 3 seater moped. I can see it with two carts, one for Chris and one for Noah. Gas is ridiculous. But on the otherhand, the wedding was beautiful. I didn't realize just how big I've gotten until I saw these pics this weekend. It won't be long and I'll be asking Chris to put my socks on me and bathe me....Woo Hoo!

It's Snowing In March

Can you believe it? It really did snow, and it was a blizzard a few times. He didn't know it, but Noah played in his first snow! It started snowing here about 10:00 am and there's still flurries falling now (5:00pm). I am still in shock that it had everything in Ruston white for a couple of hours. Hope you enjoy some of my snow pics!

Well, I think that Chris and I have decided on this name! "Noah Christopher" We both kept coming back to Noah and it was the only one that we both agreed on for sure. We like it and are excited to finally have something to call it. Last night Chris decided to read to baby Noah.....nothing like listening to Harry Potter. I am just glad that Chris wanted to do that! He was even down by my belly so baby could hear. It was so sweet! Hope you like our name!
