Wii had a great day

Neo saved up enough money to pitch in for a Nintendo Wii. We all played it today and had loads of fun. He is already wanting to add games and stuff to his wish list for his birthday and christmas. I will get the details and add it to the list soon. Or, if you want, email Frankie.

I will update the blog after my appointments tomorrow.

Sunday, September 23

Just a small post to say that we are still waiting for our baby to come...

I have an ultrasound tomorrow at 11:30 and a doctor's appointment at 1:30. I will let you guys know what is going on later tomorrow afternoon.

Good Morning

I slept in the recliner last night, hoping that the baby would stay or move down some. I slept okay, but don't know his position.

The birds are chirping and it looks nice out. I am thinking about going out for a walk. Maybe we can get something going here. I can tell when I walk that he is pushing down (especially on my bladder). One of my neighbors told me to try some eggplant parmesan. I may do that today. I have never had that, but its worth a try. It has been nice to talk with some of our neighbors while I am out, or at least get a wave and a smile.

I will keep you all posted on any updates. Have a good Saturday!

It's Friday, no baby yet

Good morning!

I went walking yesterday afternoon, and I could tell that the baby moved down some. It felt great to get some exercise in and I felt good that the baby moved down (especially since the doctor said he moved up). But, this morning he does not feel like he is in that position anymore. Maybe if I sleep standing up, he will stay down :). It is nice and cool outside this morning, so I will go take a stroll and see what happens.

Thanks again for the emails and phone calls. I will keep you all posted.

Dr. Appointment update

My doctor said that the baby moved up! Maybe he is nice and cozy in there. She said his heartbeat sounds good. I am the same amount dialated as last week. So, she wants to do an ultrasound next week to see how big he is and check his movements. I will keep you all posted on any updates.

Heading to the doctor

My doctors appointment is at 10:30 today. I will head over there and make a post this afternoon with what she says.

I hope that everyone is doing well.

Still doing great

I am feeling good and trying to get some rest in before the baby arrives. I am really excited, because I know that each day is one day closer to us meeting the baby.

I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow (Thursday), and will make another post after the appointment. I hope that things have progressed since last week's visit.

Thanks for the phone calls, emails and texts to see how things are going. I will try to post here often until the baby arrives. That way, everyone knows what is going on.

Please keep us in your prayers.

Thank you.

Updates

Well, we had a great weekend just relaxing and getting stuff done. Neo met a new friend and they were together most of the weekend. Frankie got lots done around the house and he washed my car. Thanks babe! I really believe it is the cutest car ever! When the time comes, it will be hard to part with it. : (

No new news on the baby. I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday morning. So, we will see what she has to say. But maybe we won't need to go. :) I am feeling well and trying to keep my feet up and relax. We went to eat out last night and I thought that spicy food may do the trick to get some contractions going. No such luck. The food was really good. I have not had spicy food in a while.

Neo added the Transformers - Decepticons DS game to his wish list for his birthday. He has a similar game that is really neat that he enjoys. Or if you are interested, it looks like we will get a Nintendo Wii. There are lots of games and accessories to go with it. Talk with Frankie if you are interested in those items. If you all can make it, his birthday party will be on October 13th.

I hope that all is well with you and your families. Take care and keep in touch.

So anxious...

We are all so excited about the new baby. We can not wait! Our bags are packed and the room is pretty much ready. I am feeling well and have a doctor's appointment today. I will let you guys know what she says.

We are looking forward to sharing this with you. We will definitely update the website and post pictures as soon as we get them. I know that Houston is not "next door," but would love to see you and have you over to see our family. I am not sure how long it will take us to get settled in, but if everything goes as planned we think that we will be ready for visitors one to two weeks after the birth. If you are able to come in to Houston, please talk with Frankie or myself so we can coordinate the visit and make sure that we are ready and that we don't have everyone here at the same time.

I look forward to visiting with all of you and sharing this special time in our lives.

Anxiously awaiting...
Love,
Christian :)

Neo's Birthday

I can't believe that Neo is almost 7 years old. The years go by SO fast! I started putting a list of items on Neo's wish list if you guys are interested. His party will be on Saturday, October 13 at Jump'n Jungle. We would love to see you there.

These are Neo's inputs:
- Wii games/controllers and accessories (email Frankie for specifics)
- a Jack Sparrow costume (I found this one on Disney's website - size M, the sword, patch and telescope are here) (I found another one that looks cool here)
- Animal Crossing DS game
- High School Musical DVD
- Transformers - Decepticons DS game

Things Frankie and I think he will like/need:
- Dave Barnes 'Chasing Mississipi' CD
- Marc Broussard 'Save our Soul' CD
- he needs some light long sleeve shirts for this winter (size 6)
