19 weeks

Category: Life

Well, Today I'm 19 weeks along and so that means next week I'll be halfway there! I have started cleaning the baby's room, up to now it has been our "junk room" so having the baby is forcing me to finally clean it out. I have packed up all my clothes that don't fit anymore and won't fit in a couple months.

In other news, I have been so scatter brained and clutzy lately. This morning Matt said "uh, oh!" and pointed the the icecream on the counter that I didn't put away last night. I just bought it last night and so it was practically full. "what a waste" I thought as I lifted the top and saw the vanilla soup. I picked it up by the top to put in the garbage can and Splat! I scream, Matthew says "what's wrong" "I dropped it!" all over the floor. (this is five minutes before I have to leave to go to work) The dogs come running in to the rescue. I'm sure they think this is such a treat. Of course I'm having visions of sick dogs floating through my head. I cleaned it up the best I could with Abner's help laughing at myself and the dogs the whole time because what else can you do but laugh. I think Abner got all the places that I missed. I almost slipped a couple of times (icecream is slippery on lanoleum and bare feet) but my genius balancing skills saved me.

To my baby boy

Friday (3/24/2006)was so exciting for me and your dad. We woke up Friday morning and we couldn't wait to go to the ultrasound to see you! We hadn't seen you in two months and we wanted to know if you were growing and we also wanted to know if you were a boy or a girl. We went to McDonalds and got some breakfast and we went to Eckerds to get a videotape so that we could watch you again when we got home. Grandma Cox met us there so that she could watch you too. When your dad and I walked into the Doctor's he looked at me and said "I don't care if it's a boy or a girl, I just want to know what it is and that it's healthy". I felt so nervous when they called my name to come back, I had been looking forward to this day for weeks and it was finally here. The lady who gave me the ultrasound was named Jill and she was nice. She showed me your heart beating and your brain and finally she told me that you were a boy! I was so happy, your dad and I couldn't stop smiling. Grandma was happy too! You are special because you are the first boy in my family. When we left the Dr. we called everyone that we know to tell them the news. Grandpa Cox was in Florida and when I told him you were a boy he said "no way!" he didn't believe me, but I told him that it was the truth. He was also very happy. I showed your pictures to everyone at work and your dad showed them to everyone at his work. I went to the store and bought some boy clothes for you and your dad bought a baseball glove for you. I can't wait until you get here! I want to kiss your adorable cheeks and hold you in my arms. I love you already.

How Exciting!!

Current mood: excited
Category: Life

I am so glad that I found out what I am having! I don't know how people can wait until the baby is born to find out. I have a whole different outlook on my pregnancy now that I know it's a boy. I can call him "he" instead of "it" and I can start thinking of names and daydream about what he will be like or look like. I feel like I hit the lottery jackpot because it seemed that the odds of having a boy were so slim. I was so excited and scared at the same time when I found out. I was thinking...."I'm not going to know what to do with a boy" but now I feel confident that God would not give me anything that I could not handle. (plus I do have God on my side if I do need help). I just hope that he's a big healthy baby (not too big though.... ouch!)

18 weeks today

OK so, I get my ultrasound tomorrow so I will find out if the baby is a boy or a girl..My mom thinks that there are two babies but I'm not so sure about that. We will know for sure tomorrow. I have gone through 4 months without morning sickness and all of a sudden this week I have gotten sick two mornings. It's just not right!

I will let you all know tomorrow what it is so stay tuned.......

What a great weekend! We ate good food, saw good movies, had good times. Let's see…Saturday morning we watched "The Great Raid" I would give it a thumbs up. Saturday night we saw "V for Vendetta" also a thumbs up although it was kinda violent so if you don't like violence I wouldn't recommend seeing it. (Can I digress for a minute? This movie was rated R and there were several adults in the movie theatre with small children, probably ranging in age from 5 – 10. I don't understand why you would bring a child to an R rated movie when there was a kids movie playing in the same theatre?) Thanks for letting me rant for a minute. Last night we saw "Walk the Line" also a thumbs up! [Again, not for kids (mostly because of some cursing and drug use.)] So either I am very easy to please when it comes to movies or I got lucky this weekend

Current mood: bored

Yeah!!! it's Friday! I am looking forward to the weekend. Tonight it's Mom's house for cornbeef and cabbage (in honor of St. Patrick's Day). I think that it's funny that we grew up with my dad telling us that we were Irish and come to find out a couple of years ago when we were researching our geneology, the Cox's actually came from Sweden! There's probably someone in our geneology who was Irish so I'll keep believing that we are Irish (maybe 2/15 Irish :)).

Matthew doesn't have any concerts this weekend so I am looking forward to spending some time with him this weekend. I think we are going to go see a movie. We haven't been to a movie since we went to see King Kong on Christmas. I hope we get popcorn!

17 weeks today

Well, I'm 17 weeks prego today! My belly is getting big so I finally am convinced that I am pregnant. I am glad that the nausea is gone! I go for my ultrasound next Friday and I am so excited to finally find out what I'm having! I think it's a girl but I could be wrong. I think that if they say it's a boy I'll tell them to check again because I won't believe it's possible. (for those of you who don't know, there are no boys in my family, we are going on 7 girls, 0 boys) But I will be so happy if it is a boy, although I'll kind of feel bad for him having to hang out with all us women! I'll keep everyone posted. Anyone want to guess what it is?

Well, after 6 months Henry is finally sleeping through the night. I had to let him cry himself to sleep for a couple of nights but now he goes to sleep without a peep. It's great! He sleeps for 11 hours. Yay Henry!

He tried prunes today, what a face he made!

Now we just need to start working on crawling.

I can't believe that Henry is already 6 months old! Where has the time gone! He just gets cuter and smarter everyday. He is sitting up by himself and he tries to talk. He loves to laugh. I tickle him all the time because I love to hear his laugh. I still am not sure what color eyes he's going to have, the color changes daily. It looks like he's going to be a blonde like his mama though. I just thought I'd give an update for whoever is interested.

I was playing with Henry tonight like I always do and he laughed out loud for the first time!! It was the most beautiful sound! I just thought I'd share my moment with my Myspace peeps.

I have been back at work for a week now and it's not as bad as I thought it would be to be a working mom. I think that Matt being a stay at home dad makes it a lot easier on me though. The hardest part of it is that I miss Henry a lot during the day. He only wakes up once during the night now but he is still sleeping in his carseat or with Matt and I. To be honest I haven't even tried the crib in a few weeks... maybe I'll try it on a weekend night.. Henry went to the dr to get shots Mon. it was heartbreaking... :( he is 13lbs 4 oz and 25" long. He is so big!! Well, thought I would give an update for anyone who cares.

I was typing this with one hand since I have a baby in the other so sorry for lack of grammar...

Current mood: exhausted

Well, I've been a mom for 2 weeks and it is the most wonderful & exhausting experience of my life. Some days I feel like a human milk machine.

Henry is a really good baby though, really all he cries about is being hungry and that's easy to fix. I figured that out the hard way though. The first few nights when he would cry I didn't know what was wrong because I had just fed him and I just knew that he couldn't be hungry, but after I tried everything else I tried feeding him again and that's what he wanted. I think that he just really likes to eat a lot (I guess he gets that from me though). He doesn't want to sleep in his crib or his bassinet. He either wants to sleep in my bed with me or in his carseat. The last few nights he has slept in his carseat. I hope that he eventually will sleep in his crib because he will outgrow his carseat in a couple months.

Matthew has been a tremendous help. I don't know how I could have done it without him. I feel very blessed to have such a wonderful husband. Thanks Matthew, you're awesome!!
