Oh, Kids...

Kids are so funny and if you just take a minute to stop and listen to what they're saying, you could probably be laughing most the day (except for the moments when they're being snotty, whiny or throwing fits: so NOT funny!). Anyway, just had this conversation with Maddie:

Maddie: Mom, my bum hurts.

Me: I'm sorry what do you want me to do?

Maddie: Hmmmm, we can't put band-aids on our bums...

Me: How come?

Maddie: Because then we can't go poops!

Hehehehehe, thats the kind of bathroom humor I get!

And It's a.......

I wish I had a scanner to post the ultrasound pictures, I'll see if I can figure something out and add them later, but the point is we had our ultrasound today! It was a lot of fun, the technician was awesome and very thorough and up beat and excited, she made it a lot of fun. We had to wait forever to get the ultrasound, because after we moved up here we didn't have insurance and when it finally kicked in, the ultrasound technician was on vacation for two weeks, so I'm about 26 weeks now (usually you get your ultrasound more around 20 weeks) so it was a little different because the baby's bigger and their face looks a little more filled out, kind of fun! So she printed off tons of pictures and asked us lots of questions about ourselves, it was really nice. Everything looks perfect and great and healthy, which is always what you want to hear, but the real exciting thing is finding out what you're having! Okay, okay, I've dragged this out long enough, we are officially 100% sure we are having a........... boy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pretty exciting huh?! We don't have like any names we're really set on, so feel free to leave ideas! I'm sure I'll put a poll up on the side sometime soon. David was really thinking we were having a girl and so it was a big surprise to hear boy, he's been grinning ever since we found out (what a man). We're very excited, just as we would be if we were having a girl, babies are so special!

2009 You're Sublime!

So I've hijacked my sister's laptop in an attempt to give 2009 a final nod (we get internet on Monday; hallelujah!!) and I hope you guys really appreciate this because its taken me forever to do! :) So here you are, some of my top highlights of 2009 and a big hello to 2010!

Favorite Song:
#1: Halo by Beyonce

runners up: Tonights Gonna Be a Good Night/Black Eyed Peas and pretty much anything by Lady Gaga :)

Favorite Movie:

I haven't seen Avatar yet or I'm sure I'd say that one, so I guess I'll go with either Harry Potter or The Princess and the Frog. I didn't get out to a lot of movies this year, darn.

Favorite TV Show:
America's Next Top Model: PETITE season
(I SWEAR I missed my chance in life, next season won't be for short girls AND I'll be too old--so soooo sad!) ;)

Favorite Book:

Fablehaven series, I know these books aren't brand new, but there's a new one coming up soon! But I ate this series up and just adored it, his writing gets better and better each book!

Favorite Vacation:

Well, since pretty much the only vacation we took was up to Washington, I'll choose that one. :)

Favorite Outfit:

Orange cardigan, I wore this sweater a LOT. Writing this right now sucks because I'm fat and pregnant and I don't like anything I have, so coming up with a favorite outfit was rough!

Favorite Person:

I think normally this section would be like your favorite movie star of 2009, but I don't know any famous people. And since we've moved and I miss a lot of friends, I have to give a little shout out to my friend Shanna who I really just got to know this past year and I adore her. (I have lots of amazing friends that I miss terribly, just focusing on someone from this year ya know?) So anyway, I want Shanna to know that I truly admire her as a person, she's taught me a lot, been a great friend and listened to me go on about whatever for hours, she's so awesome!

Most Drastic Change:

Moving to Washington, and joining the Army Guard. And getting pregnant.

I'm sure I can think of lots more highlights and even some lowlights, but I'm tired now and I ate WAAAAAY too much for dinner and I feel stretched. Hope you enjoyed this little look back on this last year, hopefully we'll take what we learned and make next year even better!
