I GROW 'EM BIG!


How exciting! I was surprised today with a trip to Fetal Testing for a complete sonogram. That is when they scan the baby to see how big he is. They can tell by his measurements how far along he is in gestation. Well, let me tell you...my baby boy is already 2lbs 5 oz!!!!! He is measuring anywhere from 27 1/2 weeks to 28 1/2 weeks. I am so excited. I will be 27 weeks on Wednesday. But, the sonogram determined my due date to be March 1st instead of March 8th. We'll see what happens next. I wonder if they will change my due date "officially" because it is a full week ahead of what we thought it was.

My little man fell asleep the other night while watching Harry Potter in my bed. Notice he still has a tight grip on the remote control.

This is the poinsettia that my Mom, Dad, and Mason sent me to get me in the holiday spirit.

This is my Christmas tree. Bob and Kris (my mother and father in-law) brought this up to me the other night. Complete with all of the things I needed to string popcorn and cranberries. So, that is what I did yesterday. I think that it turned out rather nice. Also, my sister in-law Jessica came to visit me last night, and brought me Tim Hortons Coffee (a must if you are visiting me), and a bag full of yarn and knitting needles. She is going to teach me how to knit next time she comes up. I can't wait. My brother already placed an order for a beanie hat. We'll see.

Keep up the prayers, and keep bringing me good food! They both seem to be helping this baby grow big and strong.
