Y'all Come Back Now, Ya Hear?

This weekend we are making a small trip to the more southern regions of our country. To us, pretty much everything seems like the South, but I'm pretty sure Louisville, KY does actually qualify. We'll be celebrating the wedding of Brian's college friend Jeff Mixon. Hopefully we'll have a few pictures to share from the adventure. It's a quick trip, but with snow in the forecast it might take a little longer than normal. I'm just excited to go to a new state. At least, I think its a new one. I may have slept through it on a family trip 10 years ago, but that doesn't really count anyway. Hope you all have a great weekend!


Baby Gee

Some of you know by now that we are expecting a little one to join our family on September 1, 2009. If you know your pregnancy math (which takes a little getting use to!), that means that I am almost on week 11 with our little kumquat (pregnancy books like to compare the size of the baby with fruit). As this is a semi-photography/semi-personal blog, we thought it would be fitting to share the first pictures of our baby with you all. Yep, you guessed it - ultrasounds!

Here is baby Gee at week 6 - heartbeat already going strong and mama starting to feel queasy. Baby is that small little dot - about 2mm long!
And here is baby Gee at week 10. Most of the big organ systems are developed and baby has gone through a growth spurt and is now 1.2 inches long! It's no surprise then that mama's been feeling nauseous and tired for the past month! Baby's head is to the left, you can see the little arms reaching up, and the little legs to the right. Baby has already inherited daddy's restlessness and wouldn't sit still for a good picture. Heartbeat is at 168!
We'll keep you all updated as the weeks progress. I look pretty much the same for now, so there won't be any baby bump pictures for a little while!
