I'm such a mom!!

I was at Starbucks this morning and one of the girls asked how the baby was. I said BB was great and moving around a lot. Then I busted out the baby pictures. Right there in the drive-thru. Of course the girls loved them and I just loved showing them off. I can only imagine what I'll be like when the baby is actually here. I'm going to be one of those annoying moms who makes people look through an entire photo album as I comment on each picture. Brace yourselves!

Baby Videos

I uploaded the videos onto our website. Here's a couple of them:

Baby Burns moved A LOT in 2d. The 3d view looks slower because it's a few frames behind the baby.

Baby, You Are BEAUTIFUL!!

Our 3d ultrasound was amazing. I can't believe how beautiful the baby is...I can't wait to kiss his or her little face!! We had a great time, the u/s tech was wonderful. He was very patient and wouldn't give up until we got good face shots. BB just wouldn't face the camera! After lots of tummy shaking, we got some great photos. We also got a DVD, which I am trying to figure out how to upload and post.

Here are a couple of my favorites:

I really want to go again!!!! It was a fantastic experience. Chris and I are very, very lucky!!

I'm throwing in the pillow!

Ugh! This is the 2nd morning in a row that I've woken up at 2:30 and haven't been able to get back to sleep (not for lack of trying though.) I somehow end up making it through the day just fine, thankfully. Between Chris not being able to fall asleep until late, and me waking up super early, we're going to have this parenting thing down :)

There's 2 months and 25 days until Winter Break. 99 days til my due date (1/1/09). That's 14 weeks. I plan on enjoying every last minute!

Wish us luck at our sonogram today. I want some good pics of Baby Burns :)

25 weeks!!

And 18 pounds heavier! That's what I've gained so far, 9 of those in the last 5 weeks (since our last appointment.) Dr. K says I'm absolutely fine and that I'm measuring great. I love feeling and seeing the baby move, although BB is quite lazy. Chris doesn't get to feel or see very often because it happens so randomly. Maybe as I get into the 30's we'll get more action.

I am so, so excited about our upcoming sonogram....3d baby!! I hope we get some really good shots and that we don't see anything below the waist. Although I'm thinking that if we do accidentally find out, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. We'd still keep it a secret, but I'd go on a huge shopping spree :) Here's what a 3d u/s looks like for a 26w old:

I ordered our glider & ottoman. I need to order animal pictures for the wall and a monogram decal for above the crib. I think we have enough clothes & blankets to do our first load of baby laundry! My registry is done. I feel very ahead of the game.

My next appointment is Oct 9th (our 4 year wedding anniversary!) and I'm dreading it b/c I have to take the 1 hour glucose test. After that I start going every 2 weeks...which is just insane. These last 100 days are going to fly by. I wish I could be pregnant forever! I at least want to hold out until Dec 19th. I want to make it to Winter Break, then BB can come anytime after that!

I'm off to enjoy a beautiful Fall weekend...one of the last quiet weekends ever.

Life is so good!

Every once in awhile I am overcome with the sense of how great my life is. It started to happen when I married Chris. I would just stop and think, "Wow, I'm very lucky to be his wife." I still absolutely feel that way. More and more it's been about Baby Burns. How lucky am I to be carrying this precious person?? Made from two people who love each other so, so much. I hope this baby knows everyday how much he or she is loved, and how much his/her parents love each other.

Other awesome happenings:

My class is really coming along. I forgot how hard it is in the beginning of the year. But we're starting to mesh well and I'm happy about that.

My other SIL is pregnant! I am so excited for her...she's going to be the best mom.

A teacher at my school is having triplets!!!! At first they thought twins, and I actually had a dream last night that she was having twin boys. Turns out she is having 2 boys...and 1 girl! Wow, how lucky is she?!?

I'm having Jambalaya tonight for dinner and Dutch Apple Pie for dessert. It doesn't get much better than that!!

Can't sleep!

It's 3:30 and I'm wide awake. I woke up at 2:30 to use the bathroom, and when I laid back down, Baby Burns was kicking up a storm!! The funny thing is that every night before bed I lay on my back just watching & waiting for a few random kicks. I only get a couple before I get bored and go to sleep.

It was so cool, BB was moving around like mad. I wanted to wake up Chris so badly so he could feel all the action :)

It's a girl!!

We're having a niece! My sister in law Sarah found out last Friday that she is in fact expecting a little girl! She wanted a girl so badly...Isabella is on the way!

Now, will she have a cousin Jack or cousin Audrey to play with?!?

23 weeks!

This was our first week back to school with the kids and boy am I feeling it! My whole body aches. I think it's because I'm not used to standing and walking as much. I'll get used to it! Baby Burns is about 11 inches long (whoa!) and can supposedly feel me dancing around. We have a 3d sono scheduled for the end of the month. I can't wait to see what he/she looks like in there.

Speaking of sonograms.....

Tomorrow my SIL has her Big u/s! I'm hoping she gets the news she's been praying for. Good luck!! I'll be anxiously awaiting the news!

Look how cute!!

Baby Burns got a very sweet package in the mail! My BFPB sent the cutest onesies, a super-soft blanket, and an 'Expecting!' decal:

Thanks Devon! I will absolutely enjoy all the green & yellow before we get bombarded with pink or blue :)
