Baby Update

So I feel like we're blogging like crazy this month. And we'll probably have another post sometime from now to New Years. But we have some info to update you with. First off we're due June 6th. Everything looks like its progressing normal, and going well. We got to hear the baby's heart beat at our last appointment (which was the second appointment). Now because Douglas works in Radiology, we went to his work to find out what we're having early. We found out that we are going to have another boy. Douglas is really excited for them to have similar interests as they grow up, but most especially for the day he can wrestle with both of them. We are both excited for the new boy. I know that many of you are wondering if we're going to wait to tell the name again like we did with Japheth, well we don't have a name pick out this time, so the answer is I don't know. After we find a name then we'll talk about if we're going to tell everyone or not.

An Overdue Request to Douglas

So a long time ago my sister in law posted around 10-12 things that people usually don't know about her. At the end she requested me to do the same. I've been meaning to for awhile and am finally fulfilling my part.

These are in no particular order.

1- I have a hard time sitting still. My life has been so busy for the last few years that I now feel guilty sitting around for too long, even on my day off. So my days off often are filled with working.

2- I secretly would love to be a real cowboy. During my mission I spent about 6 months around ranching communities. My weekly community service ended up being ranch work with just about anything you could think of. The cowboys up there were humble men made of strong toned muscles, calluses and very little to say unless it was friendly or important. Plus I like cowboy hats. (the tight pants might be a problem though)

3- The biggest fear I have is a home invasion. I'm obsessively locking doors and often think of what I would do to protect my family if the situation ever arose.

4- I love to watch children especially my son. The innocence that children have is one of my favorite things to see.

5- I don't tease Jill nearly as much as I would like. She would probably tell you that I tease her all the time, but that's not true! (YES IT IS!)-Jill

6- I love fish, swimming, and especially anything that combines the two, like snorkeling.

7- British comedies and sci-fi shows are some of my favorite shows to watch if I'm up late at night. I think my favorite is Red Dwarf. I also like the Red-Green show, which isn't British.

8- I really enjoy taking walks when it's really cold outside, especially if there's snow. Times like these the air is fresh and everyone else is inside. So the roads are all mine. I especially have fun when I have a friend who doesn't mind doing it as well.

9- Dispite my love of staying up late I've been forced to become a morning person. The last 5-6 years I've had to get up early every morning and now I get tired around 10:00. It's a sad, sad thing.

Well, I've thought and thought and that's all I can come up with. Thanks for reading!

Family Pictures

So we got new family pictures. It was a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. Japheth just kept wanting to run around the studio. Things are well, Japheth has discovered that some food sticks to his fingers, and he can pick it up without having to grab it. He thinks it's a lot of fun. He loves to play Giutar Hero World Tour with his Dada. And every time we go get the mail he HAS to ride his tonka truck.

We got the tree up, and Japheth thinks its fun too, after we got the lights on he kept saying "pretty!" over and over. Though he also thinks the ornaments are new toys to play with. Most are higher, so it's not too bad, but we went over to see his Grampa Rasmussen the other day and he wouldn't stop taking the ornaments off.
