Daisy graduated today from puppy school. She can now sit and lay down on command.

She doesn't quite get stay yet and sometimes responds to come. But I'm glad she learned something!

Great Deals

This past Saturday we went to the Salvation Army for their 75% off sale and we got lucky. We got this book case, a changing table, and two wooden chairs. I think these purchases got David excited about the nursery because he is now looking through Sunday Sale ads for cribs and other baby items. I guess I need to get started on our registry.

Baby Kimono

I absolutely love this baby kimono and have been looking for tutorials on how to make it, but no such luck. It can be purchased from Lucky Wang.

10 year reunion

Really? It's hard to believe that my 10 year reunion is this September. Here's the web page. I haven't kept in touch with anyone from high school but it's fun to look at the web page and see what they are doing now.

Fetal Heart Monitor

I got this in the mail yesterday and got to use it! I was able to find the baby's heartbeat (170), it only took 30 minutes.

Family Visit

Mom and grandma came to visit last week. They left today. Here's a photo of 4 generations, one is in my belly. While they were here my grandma taught me to knit. Here's one of the slippers I'm making for my mom. I haven't started the other one yet. My mom is probably the only person that we would have as a guest that won't get in trouble for cleaning the house. She was a great help and would love to have her back anytime.

Ultrasound 6/19

Today I had another ultrasound and a visit with the doctor. My mom and grandma came with me to the ultrasound and got to see the baby wave and the baby's facial profile. The baby is now measuring 10 weeks and 5 days when I'm actually 10 weeks and 3 days. Baby's growing!

Ultrasound 6/16 @ 10 weeks

We went for an ultrasound Monday because I had a little bleeding while in New Orleans. It turns out there was nothing to worry about. As soon as the ultrasound picture came up I saw the Baby doing flips and we also got to listen to the heartbeat, which was 171. David missed the Baby moving again. I don't know what he is looking at when this is going on. The nurse said that some bleeding is normal and I know that but it still worries me.

The Big Easy

David had a business trip down in New Orleans last week so I met him there Thursday and we stayed the weekend. Here's David enjoying some doughnuts at Cafe du Monde.
They were also having a few festivals in the French Market. We enjoyed some really good food.
We had seafood for every meal, here crawfish, oysters, and rice and beans.

We did a lot of resting at our hotel's courtyard/pool area.
We also took a two hour trip on the steamboat Natchez.

Silent Auction

Last Thursday we went to a dinner and silent auction for Shepherd Community here in Indianapolis. All proceeds go to feed children. Since school is out there are some children that are not getting the two meals a day that they would get while they were in school. I used to have some of these children in my classroom so this auction was very much worth it to me. Well, David had never been to a silent auction and he really got into it. There were two items that I wanted to win/bid on. One was this Longerberger basket with goodies in and the other was a photography session. We won both, thanks to David's pacing around the room to make sure no one else out bid us. He also bid on a surprise for me, which he won. It has a pair of fingerless gloves. Very cool and can't wait to use this this winter. We also went with a friend but I can't say what she won since her husband checks out this blog, boy is he going to be surprised.

Movie and Play review

Friday I went to see The Strangers with my friend Kate. Of course we had to see it during the day so we weren't to scared to go home. I love horror movies but can only watch them when David is in town. The movie had scary moments and didn't really scare me because of the neighborhood I live in. Then Friday night David and I went to see the Fantasticks. I loved it and would recommend this play to anyone. The were several families in the audience, which was good to see.

Where have all my strawberries gone?

I had at least a dozen red strawberries in this patch, but someone got to them first. Yup, little miss Daisy discovered she likes strawberries. We also have broccoli ready to be picked and the beginnings of a cauliflower.

Rump shaker

We had our second ultrasound today and I got to see the baby shake it's rump. It was amazing to see it move. David didn't see it, I think he was still staring at the beating heart. The heart rate is 167 and it is measuring 8 weeks and 4 days. The ultrasound tech even pointed out the baby's chin, I think it looks like David's right now. The doctor and her assistant are very happy.

Sheryl Crow Concert

Monday night David, Courtney, Karla and I went to see Sheryl Crow. It was an awesome concert. I guess I like outdoor concerts more than indoor concerts. Brandi Carlile opened for her. I though I knew some of her songs but I didn't recognize any of them. Sheryl puts on a great show.

The doctor's office called yesterday to inform me my urine analysis shows that I have an infection and that I need to take antibiotics. I had no idea. I guess this is somewhat normal for pregnant women due to the growing uterus around the bladder.

Dolphins and Whales

We went to see and IMAX movie last night. I think I need the kiddie glasses.
