Luke's 1st haircut

Before...and looking very sleepy.I took him to Cool Cuts for kids. We have a couple of people in our ward who cut hair, but I couldn't wait any longer, so I just took him on Wednesday and just walked in. He did great! Luke had to wait a bit but he didn't mind because he just played with the train table they had there! And besides paying as much for Luke's hair cut as we do Michael's hair cuts I am happy with the end result. And we even got a Polaroid picture in a card with his hair in a plastic part.

So, a little update.

I can't believe that Thanksgiving is this week! Soon I will be looking Christmas in the face, but luckily I shouldn't be to stressed out, we are going light on Christmas this year. Just happy to spend the holidays with family and friends.

I am doing well, the worst of the kidney stone pain is gone, and besides just feeling groggy and sore the weekend, everything is fine. I have my next OB appointment on December 9th, I'm a little anxious, because of last week but everyone is assuming the baby is fine so I should be too. Easier said than done.

I finally put the rest of the baby locks on the kitchen cabinets so now we don't have to block them with chairs and garbage cans and stuff.

We went to the pumpkin patch on Luke's birthday, I think he liked it. We got him two tiny pumpkins but he just like to eat those. And Michael decided to seatbelt the pumpkin in on the way first!

As if....

...being pregnant wasn't difficult enough. I started the week with a bladder infection, but that was just the start and not even the worst part. Tuesday I had an appointment with my OB, and things were looking good, she worked me in for an ultrasound and saw that the heartbeat was strong and that all looked well so far, and that was the highlight of the week. Thursday I had a bit of a crisis, besides having to go to the bathroom several times during the night, I heard Luke about 4 times in the night, so I really didn't sleep well. I just thought that the day would be exhausting, but about the time I was putting Luke down for his nap, I started having pain in my back and it got stronger very fast. I knew I had to go to the hospital because it felt like the same kind of pain I had back in January 2007 when I had kidney stones. So, I found someone to stay with Luke until Michael's mother could get here and I found a ride to the ER and Michael met me there. Kidney stones. That's now what I have to deal with. Uuuggg.

So, I hardly ever do tags, but I thought that this sounded like a fun one. You are supposed to get the fourth picture in your fourth file and post that. I have seen this tag before on a few blogs and usually it has been a picture of their kid(s) but since this was before Luke our fourth picture is of Ender! So...let's see your 4th picture in your 4th file!

And I guess while I am making a post, I'll add a quick update. I'mm doing well...well, as well, as I can be doing right now. I'm sicker this pregnancy than with Luke, but I could also be feeling worse. I just realized that I never posted pictures from Luke's birthday and here are a few from Halloween...

We added something new to our blog...

...and to our family! Notice the little ticker thing on the right? We will be expecting this new baby in early June! And for those who are trying to do the math...Luke and this new baby will be 19 months apart. Really after waiting so long to have Luke, we thought that it would take longer than it did!

Luke's 1 year appointment

I took Luke for his 1 year appointment today. We switched Dr.'s so this was his first time seeing her. All went well and we will be sticking with this Dr. and also it's nice that she's closer to home.

Luke feels heavier than he really is, and it's not just me that thinks that.....

Weight: 21.3 lbs - 25th percentile
Height: 31" -90th percentile

So since his 9 month appointment, he has only gained 2.3 lbs, but he grew 4"!!!

Election Day

We voted! At 7am this morning. Michael is working from home so we got to vote together.

I guess they don't do the "I voted" stickers anymore....bummer!

Are you ready for some football....

We have a few Bronco fans in this house!
I have a lot of pictures and things to post, but I am really far behind and so instead of making one huge post where details may get lost, I am going to stagger out the posts!
