Vegas Baby!!!

Daddy and I are off to Vegas. I was so nervous this was the first time that I have left you overnight. Luckily your Grandma Sandy came into town to watch you. She is the Grandma that you have spent the most time with, so I was hoping you would remember her a little. She came into town a couple days early to get you used to her again. She was so excited to finally get some alone time with you. She loves her Tyler so much:)

Mommy and Daddy had a great time in Vegas. It was so nice to get away for a bit. Especially before your little sister arrives. And best of all I got to eat a meal in peace!!! Mommy was one of the few that came home from Vegas a winner! Daddy did not have the same luck. And to make it even better you did awesome for your Grandma Sandy. You weren't fussy at all, that made our trip so much easier.

Here are some pictures from our time in Vegas. Sorry I was really bad about take pictures, so there aren't many.

Goodbye Atlanta

We had a really good visit in Atlanta but Daddy misses us, so its time to go home. Before we left I took some pictures of you with everyone.

You and Grandma Marcia

You and Grandpa

You and your Great Grandparents

I LOVE Harley

Harley definitely became your favorite dog while we were there. You even learned to say his name, ar-ee. Harley was so good to you, he let you sit on him, pull on him, and drag him across the room. I am amazed he never snapped at you, you really tested your limits with him.

Here is a picture of you giving Harley a hug.

Tonight at dinner I gave you a little dish of ketchup. For a while you dipped your french fries in it and then sucked the ketchup off. Then you figured out that was way too much trouble and decided to just lick the dish.

Georgia Aquarium

Today we went to the Georgia Aquarium with Grandpa and Great Grandpa. We rode the Marta into downtown Atlanta, so you got to go on your first train ride. You loved standing at the window watching the world go by.

You had so much fun at the aquarium. They had some really big fish tanks that went from the floor to about 20 ft in the air. I think you could have stood there all day and watched the fish. You also loved splashing in the shrimp taking and scaring all the shrimp away.

Riding on the Marta.

Pointing at all the fish

Looking at the fish that were really low

On the Marta on the way home. I think we wore you out.

You went swimming alot while we were in Atlanta. You loved it so much. On this day we were at one of Grandma Marcia's friend's house. It was a little cloudy outside, so it go a little chilly but you still had fun for a while. Later on in the week we took you to the pool at your Great Grandparent's house and you had so much fun. You loved jumping off the ledge into my arms. You even liked going under water. Whenever I did it you were saying more more to do it again. I love the water and I am so glad that you love it too. Daddy is not the biggest fan of the water.

King of the House

While Grandpa was away at work you decided to take over his chair. Introducing the new man of the house!

Goodbye Uncle Joel

Tonight we all had dinner to celebrate your Uncle Joel leaving for the Army. Tomorrow he is leaving for basic training. We all wish him the best of luck with his new endeavor.

Here are some pictures of you playing around after dinner.

Chasing Harley around the house with your dump truck. You had a blast but Harley was hating life at this point.

Off To Atlanta

Tyler and I are headed to Atlanta to see his Grandparents and Great Grandparents. Tyler has his own seat on the plane this time. On the way out there he did pretty good. He loved looking out the window and climbing up and down the seat.

Eating your blueberries and looking out the window during takeoff

Baby Girl Update

I had my appointment today with the perinatologist. Overall it was a very good appointment. It looks like the cyst is gone, YAY! Since the baby had the cyst, it still puts me at an increased risk for Trisomy 18 and Downs Syndrome. My risk for Trisomy 18 is 1:1800 and my risk for Downs is 1:480. According to the doctor these are pretty good odds and nothing that I should stress over. He didn't find any other markers on the baby for either of these disorders. He does want me to be monitored every 4 weeks. So that means I get more ultrasounds. I love getting peeks at my little sweetheart.

Also, I turned 17 weeks today and all the sudden baby girl decides that its time to party in my belly. Prior to today I was felling her maybe once or twice a day. Today I have been feeling some really good movement all day long. I love this part of pregnancy.

Here is a picture of the little lady. She is laying kind of upside down. Her head is towards the bottom and you will see the spine curve up to the left side. It doesn't look like a very good position to be in.
