15 Weeks!!

How far along? 15 Weeks and a few days...  I'm running late!  :)

Weight gain/loss: +3 or so... not sure. 

Sleep? Ok for now. Still getting used to getting up 2-3 times per night.

Best moment this week? My birthday w/ family and friends.  ~Possibly some movement from Baby J.

Food cravings: Nothing really...  Still pretty sick at times.  (Yes, I threw up on the interstate in Little Rock on Saturday) 

What I miss? Not a thing!!!

What I am looking forward to? Dr. appt next monday.

What's Baby J up to??

Baby's now the size of a naval orange!

Continuing the march toward normal proportions, baby's legs now out-measure his arms. And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Your fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though you probably can't feel the movements just yet.

14 weeks!

will try to post pic later!  camera is dead..... 

How far along? 14 weeks TODAY!!!!!

Weight gain/loss: +3

Sleep? Ok for now.  Still getting used to getting up 2-3 times per night. 

Best moment this week? Seeing our sweet baby again on u/s at end of last week.

Movement: Just some pulls, stretches, and tugs.  Not sure if i can feel Baby J. yet. 

Food cravings: Random stuff.  Varies from day to day.  Still pretty sick at times.

What I miss?  Nothing so far....

What I am looking forward to?  Everyday w/ our sweet miracle!!

What's Baby J up to??

Baby's now the size of a lemon!

Your adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine, and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys, and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over her body for warmth.

12 Weeks, 6 days

Here is Baby Jones' debut on the blog!!! Our sweet miracle is due March 4, 2011. We can't wait to meet him or her! We are truly thankful for our miracle every single day!!!! The first pic was our first ultrasound pic at almost 9 weeks! The next pic was yesterday at almost 13 weeks! It's amazing at how much Baby J. has changed in only 4 short weeks!

Of course these pics are full of their stuff, but hopefully we will be moving in soon. There is some wall paper to be taken down and some painting to be done, but overall we LOVE it!!!!!

Here are a few pics from Epcot!! We met up with Rodney. I think Epcot was my favorite park this visit!!

Rich can't believe he paid $8 for this beer!!!

The flower and garden festival!

Hollywood Studios

Our 2nd day was at Hollywood Studios. We had never been to this park. We had a lot of fun. Rich really liked all the stunt shows.

Here is Rich getting ready to head to the park!

Magic Kingdom

We had such a blast at Magic Kingdom on our first day at Disney World. It RAINED all day so we finally got out around 5 p.m. This made for the perfect day! No lines, no crowd!

Disney World Spring Break!!!

We had such a wonderful vacation to Disney World over Spring Break. We stayed at Disney's All-Star Music Resort in Calypso Building 10: Room 662. It was pool side and great!!! We both really enjoyed all 4 parks that we visited: Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot and Animal Kingom. During this trip we celebrated Rich's birthday and our upcoming 5th anniversary. And then while walking through Germany at 9:30 p.m. (at Epcot of course)-- our realtor called and let us know that our offer had been accepted! I think Disney is pretty magical!!! What a memory!!

I'll post some slide shows in the next few posts!!!

Teaching antonyms.....

So this week my 2nd graders were learning more about antonyms..... (opposites for all of you people that have been out of school for a while haha!) And we were talking about giant and tiny things!

So one little boy says, "A baby elephant is tiny." And a girl responds, "No a baby elephant isn't tiny, its as big as Mrs. Jones." And she was sooo serious!! As you can imagine I was crushed :)

The joys of teaching.............. i guess going to the gym now for 5 weeks isn't paying off! ha!

Snow day already???

We had our first snowy days here in Batesville. It was so pretty, but I'm a little worried about snow already. Seems early to be taking snow days.... I may be in school until July! :) Here are a few pics from the apt and around town.
