Are you coming back?

So I was packing last night for a week long trip to our corporate office in San Diego (all work I swear!) and Amelia came in and was watching me. First she asked me if I was doing laundry. I said yeah, I had to get some things washed so I can finish packing. She then looked over and asked me if I was leaving. I told her that I was leaving tomorrow and flying on an airplane to California. She then looked at me with a very concerned look and asked "Are you coming back?"

I of course told her I was coming back but the look on her face and the way she asked me was pretty funny.

Appointment & Fun Stuff

I had a regular check up with my OB on Monday (8/16--17 weeks). It went really well. My blood pressure is still under control, so that is good. The baby's heart rate was in the 150s. Baby decided after a few seconds of listening though, that we were done. He/she shoved away very suddenly to let us know!

B.J. so kindly picked up Amelia and watched her until we were done with our appointment. When we got home, she said "Why did you go to the doctor?" I told her it was for the baby. She looked me up and down (kind of disgusted with me) and said, "Where is the baby?!?" I guess she thought I should have brought it home with me in my arms.... Funny child!

Also, last night we decided to try out some of the Old Wives Tale stuff. We did the wedding ring on the string one. Jaymi and Luke each did it twice. Jaymi got "boy" both times, and Luke "girl" both times. That is what each of them would like the baby to be. I said I thought they were emitting "girl waves" and "boys waves" since that's what they wanted it to be! All the other ones we did said girl--we shall see!!! We'll do the "tests" again later on and report our findings :)

3 a.m.

Amelia usually comes in to sleep with Luke sometime after I leave for work in the morning. But this morning she came in at 3am. I was going to let her sleep with us, but her hot little body was making me hot. So I told her she should sleep in her bed, and I'd rock her if she wanted. She said "No, I do it." She wanted to go to her bedroom by herself. I wasn't sure she would, so I followed her out to the living room, where she said "I want to watch Blue's Clues..." (Go figure...). I told her it was too early for Blue's Clues and the sun wasn't even awake yet. I said, "It's three o'clock in the morning, and you need to go to bed." She walked to her room, and I told her I would rock her, she didn't want to. I said she needed to get into bed then. She says "Is it early o'clock?"

Yeah, that's the only way to describe any time before the sun comes up, if you ask me....

#2-- It's a....


So I figured it was probably time to start posting pictures of Baby #2. The ultrasound picture is from 6.5 weeks (we won't get another until 20 weeks). The bump picture is at 15 weeks. I promise, there is a baby in there somewhere, it's not all pizza and ice cream!

I haven't felt the baby move yet--that I can tell for sure. I didn't feel Amelia until about 17 weeks, so we'll see.... We've been telling Amelia about the baby, and we ask her if it will be a boy or a girl. She says "girl." Then we ask if the baby is a brother or a sister. She says "brother." So, there it is everyone, our "girl-brother." We're not finding out what we're having, so we're going with Amelia's guess right now. I think she says both so she can be right no matter which the baby is!

Amelia's Potty Training Success!

So Amelia has been potty training for a little over a week now and she has done fantastic!!! She's already filled up 1 sticker chart! (a blue's clues one, of course!)

We are now working on Sticker chart #2 (the new one has Magenta on it!) and Amelia is very excited to fill it up too! We have told her that when she fills up the second chart she gets a new bike. She is very excited!

Who says bribery doesn't work?

On the way home from Vacation Bible School this evening, Amelia was singing a song to herself in the backseat. We couldn't quite understand, but we stopped talking an listened and this is what we heard (of course, it had it's own tune, too): "Oops, I dropped the chicken. And I'm just too funny!" Yes, she is just too funny!

Also this... we were picking up her sidewalk chalk on our way inside and the ice cream truck was driving down one of the other streets. She says "Ice cream truck!" And ran up onto the porch to watch it--she can't be our kid.... she should have chased it.
