"Music is the universal language of mankind." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,

Ultrasound scans are finally here!

This one is a couple of baby arms!

Here you can see baby's fingers, arms, knees and little body.

Full baby shot. Here the doctor was measuring how big baby is and telling us our new due date.

Ricky did something sweet for me! He got me those shoes I've been wanting. He plopped them on the desk in front of me at work and said "Happy Valentines Day." then he gave me a smootch. I love my honey.

"Music cleanses the understanding; inspires it, and lifts it into a realm which it would not reach if it were left to itself." Henry Ward Beecher

I forgot to bring the ultrasound pictures of our baby, but I did finally bring my new camera to post pictures of things lately. Here in no order at all, and with no explanation are some pictures!! Enjoy!

In other news, I am really enjoying the music of Chad VanGaalen, as new agey and folky as it can be. Ben refers to it as stoner rock, which is actually quite a good way to define it. Some of it reminds me of the Beta Band, but not really. It's not something I can share with Ricky, though. I feel like all we agree on as far as music is concerned is some classical (the darker stuff), French techno pop, Prince, eighties pop and rap. I don't get it.

I am still feeling sick and I am starting to think I must be doing something seriously wrong. Everyone says the 2nd tri of being pregnant is the best, you feel on top of the world, and you start to nest. I am having none of those urges. I feel like I might throw up at any time, and I am exhausted and I just want to take naps. I do feel like cooking as much as I can, though.

Once again, I will end up with over 50 hours on one paycheck, so I'm looking at a nice payday next friday. I am going to take that kitty to the vet and get it checked for a microchip, and take her in if all goes well. If I can't take her, I am going to buy myself some brown summer sandals, a nice new purse, and some gel insoles for every pair of shoes I wear on a regular basis. Also, I need some maternity pants and a few more shirts, and I have been wanting a silly leopard print cardigan and black chucks. Chucks, by the way are hard to find anymore. The sports places in Ogden only carry Navy ones, which makes no sense. I thought plain black converse were classic. Who knew?

"Music is the medicine of the breaking heart." Leigh Hunt

Big secret was, I am going to be a momma. I am over 3 months pregnant. (cake will be involved at some point down the line, I'm sure) I will scan the ultrasound soon so all can see the cute little thing. I am still feeling very sick.

On the plus, we got a 2 bedroom apartment. I got a new glider! We are slowly making our new apartment a home.

I don't exactly want this to become a family blog, so I'll keep the baby talk to minimum.

And because I couldn't help it, here is a picture I found of myself at 13. I had clear skin that summer, now I look like I'm 12 all over agian. Where does the time go?
