Big Sister

It's official!

For those of you who haven't heard the news... Maddie is going to be a big sister! The official due date is January 5, 2008 but since our 1st little angel made her appearance a few days early and was still so big (9 lbs 7 oz) our OB is planning to induce 1-2 weeks early (as long as things look favorable at the time). So, we are looking at the newest addition arriving sometime right before or after Christmas!

I have been feeling much better than with Madelyn but still a little sick. I got the OK to stop taking the progesterone 2 weeks ago so I have not been feeling as queasy the last 2 weeks (just tired)... which has been nice!

We will be 13 weeks tomorrow and have already had several ultrasounds. The last one was on Tuesday and the baby was quite active... standing up and "jumping" all around. Thankfully, I can't feel him/her yet but if he/she is going to continue to be so active, I'm afraid I might not get so much rest in the upcoming months!

Well, that is the latest! Will keep you updated as the time gets closer!

Off and "running"

Well, not quite running... but soon! Take a look at our little walking munchkin.

Trip to Boston

Last weekend we all went up to Boston for a few days. Ben had a medical workshop to go to, so Maddie and I tagged along for the ride. Maddie did great on the plane again (mostly), although she is so busy now that I think next time we may buy her her own seat and bring more toys for entertainment! Maddie got to spend lots of time with Nonnie and Papa including 2 overnight stays at their house while Ben and I had some alone time. It's pretty sad that alone time consisted of going to be early! We did have a nice dinner in the North End one night which was yummy! Maddie and I also got to visit with Amy, Jack and Collin which was fun. Maddie especially liked playing with all of their toys and learning how to climb UP the slide before coming back down! We also visited with Aunt Ericka and Aunt Kimberly which was nice since they hadn't seen Maddie in a while. Except for the cool whether (which was kind of a nice break from down here in Virginia) we had a great visit! Unfortunately my camera kept saying the batteries were dead even after I changed them, so I don't have any pictures to share... hopefully they'll be more soon!
