New Developments

Yay! Kyle and I are officially past the halfway mark! The baby is measuring 20 weeks and 1 day, and weights 13 oz! The due date has been moved from the 27th to the 25th of August. Today we had our ultrasound, the baby wasn't in a very good position, so we didn't get any great images, in fact, the images from 11 weeks were more clear than the 20 week images (11 weeks was also on a very high-tech machine). The baby was squirming around a lot though and kept fully extending his legs and then she would retract them, over and over again, just pushing on mommy's uterus. It was pretty cool. Also pretty cool was the ultrasound gel, why couldn't they warm it up like the other place did? Also, we did not find out what the sex is and we are not going to.

I also got a new haircut. I cut about 6 inches off. It resembles my hair style in 3rd grade. . . Kyle has not gotten use to it yet, every time he looks at me he's got this weird look in his eyes that I've never seen before.

Kyle and I have started to attend a birthing class (!!!). The lady who is leading the class gave me a book to read called, "So that's what they're for!"

There are some interesting tips and I've learned a few things about breast feeding that I didn't know before, but goodness gracious, I do not need 60 pages worth of literature to convince me that bottles are bad and that breastfeeding is good. Also, I'm pretty sure that I would be excommunicated from the McMurry family if I did not choose to breastfeed. In fact, I'm pretty sure that on the "no no list" that bottle-feeding falls after divorce (severing your spirit from your spouse, or severing your baby from your body = same thing).

I can still remember growing up on the farm and my grandma saying that she would feed a baby the formula that we fed to the lambs before she would feed that baby baby formula.

Also, not sorry if this post made someone out there, who thinks boobs were made for magazine covers, feel uncomfortable.

I decided today that I think my home in Heaven will be a fixer-upper with something like a Lowes down the pot hole filled road of gold :) I'm pretty stoked!
