Our Growing Family

We have been insanely busy lately! Thursday I drove to Little Rock to take Jack for his weight check-up. He has gained over 3 pounds and now weighs 20 pounds, 2 ounces!!! GO JACK!!! The doctor was very happy with the progress, she even joked that we need to put him on Slimfast now :). She wants us to start him on formula, but he HATES IT!!! So we're going to stick with Pediasure until I get back from my parents' next week.

Brian's parents came in town Friday-Monday and we had such a GREAT time with them! We hadn't seen them since New Year's, so Jack had tons of new tricks to show them. He crawled and laughed and talked and charmed them the whole weekend. He even started something new while they were here--he started pushing his Tonka truck and walking behind it which is the CUTEST thing ever! We had such a good time and were so glad that they came to see us!

Brian and I got to go on a date Saturday night while they watched Jack. We drove to LR and went to P.F. Chang's. YUUMMMMM!!! They have these crab wontons that are incredible and coconut-pineapple ice cream that I'm obsessed with! I want to stock my entire freezer with the stuff! This pregnant woman has found something she likes--watch out! But anyway...we had so much fun just being together and laughing and eating. We needed it and it was great!

Then yesterday I went back to LR to go to my doctor. He did a sonogram and found out that I am 9 weeks and 3 days along, and my due date is September 20th!!! So now we have a picture of our little one and it's so cute! You can see her/his head, arm, and legs developing. We could even see some movement on the sonogram. We are so excited!!!!!!!!!

And tomorrow I'm going to Madison to take care of my Mom for a few days while she recovers from having surgery. My parents and sister can't wait to see us (Jack) :) :)

I'll post sonogram pictures and some new Jack pics soon.
