This weekend, I bought these wall hangings. I thought that they were so cute. I love the colors that are in them. I hung them up in the hall going into the baby's room.
Emily gave me these super cute gifts this weekend for the baby. The little bear is SO soft and the cards are way cool. The have little jungle animal pictures on them. They are black with a white background on one side and then reversed on the other. It is a really cool effect which is supposed to stimulate the baby's mind.

Now, I have a ton of projects to get done before Little Baby Boy Bills comes. I am making all the nursery decor for the room. I have been thinking of ideas all along for both a boy and a girl. So, now I can finally narrow down my options to boy decor! I can't wait to get started.
We did get pictures, but we have to wait to put them up. We don't have a scanner, so we have to just take a picture of the picture. So, I am going to let Jason do that...he has a much steadier hand than me. So, be anticipating the 2nd photo shoot of my little baby BOY!

At the Emergency room, they got me in and asked me a bunch of questions They didn't really seem concerned, so I wan't that concerned. I thought that they would only keep me there just enough to check things out and say that it is all fine. However, after about an hour of just sitting there waiting, they hooked me up to an IV (which hurt SO bad) and said that it sould take about 2 hours to go through all the fluids. My mom and I looked at each other like "are you kidding????" There is no way that I need to be here for 2 more hours. But to our surprise, they were able to keep me there for the full 2 hours and then another 2 hours after that. I saw the nurses probably 3 times that whole time and the doctor like 2 times. We were so frustrated at this. We did not need to be there that long, and then, they didn't communicate with us at all. At about 2:15, the doctor came in and said that all our test came back good and that I am fine. However, he did put me on rest. I don't have to stay in bed, but I can't really go anywhere or do anything. This is killing me because all I want to do is play with my little neices and I can't really. They can come sit on my lap, but they don't really like that because they would rather be up and moving. Anyway, I finally got home at about 2:45, and I was SO hungry. It had been over 12 hours since I had eaten. I will never go that long between meals while being pregnant. It was so terrible.
I had not been so scared during this pregnancy as I was Saturday night. I really felt like I was lossing my baby. I knew that you could miscarry at 17 1/2 weeks, but I didn't think that even the threat of it would happen to me. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers that occured in my behalf this weekend. I really have felt a intake of love this weekend. I have such great friends and family, and I am so glad that I can always count on their love...especially through the rough times of life.

After Utah, I got to have my parents and sister Olivia come visit. That was a lot of fun. We went to Multnomah Falls, the Japanese Gardens, and to the Oregon Coast. It was so much fun, except for the fact that I become car sick SO FAST while pregnant. Usually it takes an hour or so of driving to get me sick, but now it is almost instantanious. I was bad at taking pictures this trip, but here are a couple that I was able to snag.
A couple of days after my family left. I had a doctors appointment. I was able to hear the baby's heatbeat for about two seconds. The baby just would not stop moving, so the doctor wasn't able to hear it any longer than that. But she said that is a good thing because we know that the baby is healthy and active. Pregnancy had been treating me pretty well. I have had a rough past couple of weeks. It was like when the second trimester hit, I thought that I would get a little better, but I have only gotten sicker. It has been frustrating, but I know that in about 5 months...all the sickness will be gone for sure (I will just be extremely tired from all my sleepless nights instead). Anyway, I have set up the appointment for the next ultrasound for the 4th of October. I can't wait to find out for sure what I am having...now everyone pray that the baby will decide to sit still long enough for us to be able to find out. I have too such sewing to do to have to wait any longer than that.
The day after the appointment, Jason and I took a little family vacation to Las Vegas. It was a lot of fun. The first two days, we got snagged up by some timeshare companies that were going to give us some free stuff if we would go look at there resorts. So we decided to go and get hit up for about 2 hours each time, but at the end we didn't get a time share, but we got a lot of free stuff. Actually we set a budget for each day and only two of the days did we even spend a penny from the budget. It was really nice.
Here is some of the things that we did.
We started out the trip by going to a show called ICE. It was amazing. It is an ice skating acrobatic type of show. They would have people skating on ice skate stilts. They had people hanging from the ceiling doing twists and turns. They had people riding bicycles with ice skates on. They had a girl that hula hooped about 10 hula hoops at the same time and was able to control moving them all up and down her body. It was SO cool.
The next show that we went to was Nathan Burton's Magic Show. That was a lot of fun. Magic amazes me. Some of the things that people can do is crazy.
That night we went to The Phantom of the Opera. The show was wonderful. I loved seeing it in person. It was beautifully done and well worth going.
The last night we went to Mamma Mia. I liked this show, but it doesn't compare to the wonderfullness of the Phantom. The music was a lot of fun. But the story line just didn't really thrill me.
Vegas was a lot of fun. Again I was a slacker with taking pictures, but here are a few we shot.

I didn't know that Jason was taking a picture...hence the look on my face.
The Stratosphere. This is where we stayed the 2nd half of the trip.

The ultrasound went great. It was so fun seeing this little bit of life inside me. It was so cute. The baby was so wigglely. The baby kept on kicking it's legs making it hard for the tech to measure it...I can already tell we are going to have a problem child on our hands. We are so excited and can't wait for 30 more weeks to pass.

Yesterday, we went to the doctor for the first time. We tried to hear the heart beat, but the baby is too small. So, next Thursday, we are going to have our first ultrasound. We are so excited to be able to see the baby.
For all of you that like to know stats...I am 9 weeks pregnant, and I am due Febuary 29.

The day after Bruce and Sue left, I started babysitting my 2nd baby. This one is a little 3 month old boy named Tate. He is a lot harder to take care of then Brooklyn. He cries a lot which make it hard to deal with. But we can only hope that it might get better as he gets a little older and more used to the bottles. Here is a picture of the babies...
Look how cute they are dressed...they always have the cutest oufits on.
