Ultrasound today..

Well needless to say, it was a bit disappointing today as we were really hoping to see more than just the gestational sac and possibly the yolk sac. They did an abdominal ultrasound which is notorious for seeing very little detail in early pregnancy and since I am only about 6 weeks along, I got to stare at a very pretty circle. However, even though there isn't much to look at my blood work numbers came back great and everything seems to be looking great for right now so, wahoo! They have set my EDD for April 24th, 2010. I guess now we just sit and wait for my ultrasound on the 23rd at my perinatologist office to actually see the baby since they will definitely do a much higher quality ultrasound. Please keep those prayers and positive thoughts coming that this little one is growing great even though we didn't see it yet.

Jocelyn's First Day of Kindergarten

Last night Jocelyn received her first "Father's Blessing for School". It was a wonderful blessing that she will have the ability to stand strong for what she knows is right and that she will be a great influence to others. After that we packed her lunch and got all of her stuff ready for her first day at kindergarten.

Not sure if you can tell in this picture or not but I have never seen a child more excited for school than my Jo this morning. She got up at 6am and was all dressed and ready to go. After I calmed her down a bit I sat her down in front of a movie to relax while I got ready and made her breakfast. She had requested to night before to have scrambled eggs with ketchup so that's what she had this morning. After breakfast we read scriptures said prayers and got in the car to go to school.

I tried really really hard to be excited even though I was pretty teary at the fact my baby is so big. However, we got to her school found her class sitting in the Gym where they do Morning Announcements and the Pledges. Yes, that's right I said Pledges, If we ever doubted we lived in Texas we were crazy because at Texas schools they not only do the pledge of allegiance to the US flag but they have a pledge of allegiance to the Texas Flag...

"Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible."

After all the announcements the kids line up and walk down to there classrooms for the day. I saw Jo off , gave her a kiss and told her I would see her after school.. she was busy coloring so she wasn't too worried :) I can hardly wait to hear how her day was when I pick her up this afternoon.

Well she had a great day!!! She said her favorite part was Recess and Coloring. She then preceded to bust open her lunch box and finished up her lunch on the car ride home because she said she got full at lunch time. She was very tired when we got home but is excited to go back again tomorrow!! Wahoo!!!

We've decided...

To let the cat out of the bag early and tell you about our fun little surprise,

because of my previous track record we need all the prayers we can get that this little miracle will stick around and complete our family..

We found out yesterday at my Annual Dr. appointment that we are expecting again... we have no idea how far along I am but Dr. seems to think I am pregnant with an April baby again.. We have an ultrasound scheduled for the 31st of this month to find out my Due Date. Please send us you positive thoughts and prayers. We are still very much in shock but excited nevertheless!!

Jocelyn's Summer Dance Performance

Okay so it wasn't this big extravagant recital because they have only been in class for 4 weeks, it was more of her normal class expect we got to go in and watch... I took a ton of videos but have decided that for Christmas this year I would love a camcorder because my camera just can't hack it. Anyways she did really well and loves dance even though it took a week for her to get use to her teacher. The only thing I can really say is bless her teacher for putting up with my little diva. Jocelyn is quite a chatty girl and has an issue or a question about every 10 minutes.. School should be interesting.

So the first half of her class was Ballet.. They did some warm up dancing and then several across the floor activities... Relavae, Skip-hops, Toe points, etc. Their teacher then had them do a few of the things they learned by themselves. Then they did a cute little performance to a song about different dreams.

The last half of the class is Tap.. this is when Jocelyn gets extra chatty because she is tired... pretty cute and sad at the same time to see her yawn in class..but she sticks with it. They did more songs during tap I think mainly because the school knows the kids start to get restless by then. The last "big" performance they did was, I guess you could call it a tap number to "Going on a Bear Hunt" All the kids seemed to really enjoy this one!

So this last Video will be some serious Blackmail someday...Oh how I love my little "BIG" girl.
