15 weeks 5 days

Baby boy,
Yesterday I had another Dr. appointment. It was very routine (as they will be for a while) and we got to hear your heart beat again! Since I am not showing too much, and I can't feel you move yet, hearing your heart beat is really the only thing that assures me that you are really there. And it still blows my mind.
The last time that I got to hear your heart beat with the Doppler you were bouncing everywhere and moving around and it took the Dr. a while to find your heart beat. Yesterday, as soon as the Doppler was pressed to my stomach we could instantly hear your heart beat. I guess since you are growing there is not much more room to bounce around in like you did before. Still, blows my mind.
The day after we found out that you were a boy (major highlight in my life BTW) I went to Target and bought you a cute little newborn jacket for $4. Win win. See, when you are born it should be pretty chilly (for us Arizonans anyways) so I figure that you could get some use out of it while you are still itty bitty.
So, since spilling the beans about your gender I have gotten a lot of comments and advice which I love.
One thing that most women have been talking to me about is the special bond that a baby boy and his mother have. I am very much looking forward to that special bonding and I am already dreading the day that you find another women you love to take over... but I know it has to happen. That's really all I can say about that before I sound too crazy. I promise I am not going to be a monster mother in law...
Don't worry though because I totally forgot that I already found your wife! Duh. She is a little older than you but BOY is she a cutie. Her name is Xelly and you will love her! Just you wait.
Anyways I love you baby. Keep on baking!

Oh boy...

Oh what a wonderful day it has been! 
Three wonderful things happened today...
First, I got an ultrasound and got to SEE you kicking and punching and it won't be long until I can FEEL you punching and kicking because...
My due date moved up a week! I am now 15 weeks and am due on January 14th.
We didn't go into the ultra sound expecting to find out what you were because it's still a little early but... during the ultrasound we got to see a little glimpse of... a... penis!
and your father could not be more proud! 
We are so excited and everything seems more real now.
You are SUPER healthy and handsome. 
Having three little brothers I am so used to having little boys around and I could not be more excited!!!
I love little boys! 
Lucky for you, you will be the FIRST grandchild on my side of the family
and on Steven's side you will be the oldest boy! 
Just like me... but, girl... Make sense?
Keep growing baby!

Guess what! Tomorrow we are going in to get another ultra sound. Wa hoo! Last time I got an ultra sound I was so nervous that I didn't really take time to enjoy the experience. Now, I am ready. I can't wait to see you and how much you have grown since you were 7 weeks.

So, your dad has been beyond amazing. Since I have become pregnant I have been lazier then normal... He has been cleaning, and cooking almost everyday. He makes sure that I get fed and fed well so that you will grow big and strong. Like this morning he made me eggs with potatoes and turkey bacon with half a grapefruit and a glass of chocolate milk. I love him so, so much.
See you tomorrow baby!

Lesson Learned

If I let myself go too long with out eating, I throw up.
I don't understand it...
Pregnany is so weird.

As soon as I get off work I am heading straight to Dairy Queen to get myself one of these bad boys...

That looks lip smacking good!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Blizzard get in my belly. I have not had one of these since I was 10 maaaaybe 11 and I cannot wait to devour one tonight.

Oh baby in my tummy, the things you do to me.
