Cutest Thing I've EVER seen!

Today was the long awaited 20 week ultrasound so we got to see our little baby. It definitely is a boy-glad our early ultrasound wasn't wrong! He is looking so cute and according to measurements seems to be more like 20 weeks 5 days instead of 19 weeks 5 days. Aaron says he had a big head as a baby/kid so he's probably right on schedule. I wouldn't mind if he came a week earlier.
This is my favorite picture of all time. He has both his hands in fists up by his face and may even be sucking his thumb.

Here is a profile and you get to see the spine. I'm hoping he has Aaron's nose and this profile looks promising :)

And, for my embarassment, here are some belly pictures.
This first one is the first pictures we took at about 8 or 9 weeks. This is to give you an idea of where we started.

This is about 17 weeks

and this is 18 weeks.

My stomach is even bigger since then so I will post more pictures soon.

Happy Birthday Emily!

This is Aaron, and I know I never post blogs on here, but I thought this post is a good reason for me to get on here :) Emily turned 27 on Monday, so after work we went out to Spaghetti Factory with my parents, Jim & Dee, and Wes and Landon (Lani had to work that night). Em had been craving this pasta dish that had Mizithra cheese, so she was happy to be there :) After dinner we went back to our apartment and had Baskin Robbins ice cream cake - its the tradition on her birthday to do that! And since Emily's favorite BR ice cream is mint chocolate, and I HATE mint chocolate, I got 2 small cakes - one with mint chip and one without :) I didn't get pictures from dinner, but here are the pictures after at our apartment for cake & presents. I also didn't get pictures of the presents themselves, but, Em got a new pair of maternity jeans, a baby boy outfit for our future little guy, and a salad spinner that she's been talking about wanting for a really long time!

Both cakes:

The presents:

I also made sure to get her flowers - it's a STAPLE present for any occasion, one that I would be in trouble for if I forgot :)

Em and my parents dragging on the couch after all the hardcore partying:

Happy Birthday Em! You're back to 2 years older than your husband again, at least until June :)
