First Ultrasound Pictures of Baby #2

On April 14th, I had my first OB appointment with my actual doctor. The first appointment I went to I just saw a nurse and answered a bunch of questions. Right before my OB appt, I had an ultrasound that she ordered done at the hospital.
Although I loved seeing the baby, and Phil was able to come along as well, it wasn't the best ultrasound ever because the technician was a bit on the grumpy, untalkative side. After questioning me as to why I was having an ultrasound done so early (I didn't actually know, the dr just ordered it) and saying it was unnecessary, she did the ultrasound and didn't say anything until the very end when she finally turned the screen to me and said, "Well, there's not too much to see." and then showed me my sweet little baby. The whole ultrasound lasted all of about 2-3 minutes. It was a quick view but I was very happy to see my little one and know that everything looks good at this point in the pregnancy.

Both ultrasound pictures are very similar. The head is on the left with little feet on the right and a hand waving in the middle. Baby measured 3.5 cm which is just over an inch. I was 10 weeks 2 days in my pregnancy at this point.

9 Weeks Pregnant

I took my first pregnancy picture on Monday, April 5, when I was 9 weeks pregnant. The reason I'm holding out 2 fingers is because I'm 2 months along (and a week). I'm going to try to take month pictures throughout the whole pregnancy so I can see the changes along the way. You can't really tell I'm pregnant at this point. I can tell a little bit of a difference but it's not really visible yet.

A Fun Family Outing

At the end of March, Phil and I decided that we needed to get out of the house and do something fun with our little family. We drove to Grand Junction and made our first stop at Wendy's for frosties.

We then drove through the Colorado National Monument. It was stunning.

Taeya is scared of heights, hence her need to hang onto the fence as she tentatively looked over the edge of the cliff.

After driving through the National Monument, we took Taeya to a park to play. While we were there, we found out there was a little pond with ducks so Taeya had her first experiencing feeding the ducks. She loved it!

Taeya did some rolling down hills and running up and down them which she thought was great fun.

After hanging out at the park we drove to Chuck E Cheese. When Phil's parents were here after Christmas, Grandma took Taeya there and had a few leftover tokens that she left with us. We were able to take her there without spending a penny (thanks Grandma!). She had a very fun filled day and we enjoyed playing with our sweet girl and seeing the joy that the park and Chuck E Cheese brought her.

It was so wonderful to get out of the house and do a little something different as a family.
At the end of our fun filled day, we had a special treat and went out to dinner (with coupons of course!) I'm so glad we were able to just spend some great family time together making some wonderful memories. Phil and I are excited to take Taeya back to that park again to feed the ducks.
