A week ago Mike and I decided to go look for a new vehicle for him since his 2005 Mercury Sable kept breaking down at stoplights and it was going to be about $2,000 to fix it. We knew that now that there is a baby on the way, we needed a bigger vehicle to fit a baby and our pups. So, we found a 2013 (leased for a year) Ford Edge SEL with 12,000 miles on it. It is fully loaded. We LOVE it. Even the dogs do. My favorite part...and the dog's favorite (as you can see below) is the massive sunroof. It's almost like being in a convertible.
I went in to the fertility clinic yesterday. We were 8 weeks 4 days yesterday and the baby was measuring at 8 weeks 5 days. This is the best picture that we have seen of the baby thus far. The ultrasound tech zoomed in quite a bit.
The heart was beating at 197bpm. I recorded it for Mike since he couldn't be there again. At the end of the video, the baby wiggled. So cute. :)
Last night I had to snap a picture of my little girl snuggling with my belly. I'm sure she has no idea yet, but it was too cute.
On another note, I am the WORST mama! I said that I wouldn't neglect my pups when we have a baby and then I was so focused on the ultrasound yesterday that I completely forgot about my baby boy's birthday! Happy 4th birthday to my little man! I love you to pieces!!! xoxo
In other news, I cannot wait until next month. In 33 days, we are going on our fall trip to northern Wisconsin. We usually go to this YMCA camp every summer, but we decided to go last fall and LOVED it. It is cheaper and we got to stay in the big cabin. We couldn't afford to go with Mike's family back in July, so we are having withdrawal from camp. In 33 days we will be getting to camp around midnight. My BFF Amy, her husband Andy, and their two adorable children (Connor and Emma) will be following us up there. That gives us all day Friday, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday. Then we will be heading home sometime before noon on Monday. My mom, dad, brother (Eric), my SIL (Mindy), and my nephew (Lukas) will all be coming up sometime on Friday. My sister is due with her daughter on October 27th, so her little family won't be joining us. :( It'll be lots of fun though and VERY relaxing.
