Wow. I can't believe that 2010 is already here! I also can't believe that is has been almost eight months since I last posted! To start things off on the right foot, blogging more frequently is one of my new year resolutions. I think that it may have been one of my resolutions last year, but with so many things going on I can't afford not to keep track of all the excitement!

I had my ultrasound on Tuesday morning and it was such a neat experience! Dallas was able to come with me and I was so delighted that we were able to share that experience together. I had a great ultrasound technician who explained everything we were looking at. I was 18 1/2 weeks at the time of the ultrasound and it was unbelieveable to see how developed she already is. We saw her little face and nose, and could even see her opening and closing her mouth! We saw the outline of her entire little body and noticed that she has great, big feet! The technician was surprised at how big her feet are for her age... almost an inch long! I think she is going to be tall like her daddy :). The technician said that based on her measurements my due date could be moved up about a week, but because I had an ultrasound at around six weeks they probably will not change it... so that means she is very healthy, which is a HUGE relief to me since I was so sick for so long! Dallas and I were waiting patiently to find out what the sex was and when she said she saw girl parts we were both a little surprised!! We both had kind of a blank look on our faces, looked at each other and then just started laughing. We are so thrilled and excited for our little baby girl!!! It's so much fun being able to call her "her" and say "she"! She is very active and I feel her all the time now, which is so neat! I already love this little girl so much and I can't wait to see her in a few months! Here are the pictures from the ultrasound.... I was sad we weren't able to get digital copies, so you'll have to deal with the scanned copies instead!
This is her first "portrait." She is looking straight that the camera. She's laying on her side--the top of her head is on the right. I was a little sad because some of the other shots she was showing us you could actually see her lips, nose, and eyes and this one you see more the outline of her skull. Oh well, I still think she's cute!!
Here is her darling little profile. Her knees are bent in to her chest, so it looks like she still has a little "tail," but if you look closely you can see her little thigh and where her knee bends. Her calf kinda disappears in the photo.
Look at her long fingers!
And last, but not least... confirmation that she is in fact a girl! ... No boy parts here!

We were also recently able to spend time with Dallas' other grandma, Grandma Ruth, who just had her birthday as well!
(Grandma, Dallas, Suzanne)I forgot my camera, but a couple of weeks ago I was able to spend time with my family in Idaho (while Dallas was in Mini Camp) to celebrate my Gram's 90th birthday!!! Dallas and I are so fortunate to have so many amazing women in our life and even though it has passed, I wanted to wish all of them a Happy Mother's Day! We wouldn't be the people we are today without them!

This past weekend was the NFL draft and was very exciting for Dallas and I! Dallas is now a Philadelphia Eagle!! He signed a free agency contract with the Eagles and is excited to get things rolling with his new team. He has worked so hard all of his life and I am so proud of him for accomplishing one of his dreams. Thank you to everyone that has helped my sweet husband get to this point and for all of your support!

Dallas and I are extremely delighted to announce that... we are going to have a baby!! I just recently finished my first trimester, and WOW did it go fast! I have been plagued with morning sickness, but am crossing my fingers that cloud will lift any day now! I'm not really "showing" to the public eye yet, but I will try to take some photos and you can judge for yourself. I am excited for when I can fit into the cute maternity clothes that my mom got me for my birthday, though! I won't be able to find out if we're having a boy or girl for about another month or so, which is driving me crazy! I want to know sooo bad! Anyway, we are so excited and can't wait to introduce you to our bundle of joy in October!
