So the other day I saw a commercial and I thought, really? It was a prescription to make your eye lashes grow longer. My first thoughts are why is this a medical condition? How many millions of dollars did the drug company put into developing this, when other things like say Cancer or Aids still haven't been cured. Secondly, and I really that obsessed about my eye lasses that I would make a doctors appointment to go get the prescription? Really are we really clogging up our doctors offices with little trivial things like I want thicker fuller eye lashes?

Really? This is all I am saying Really?

The Verdict

So I guess we still have no real idea on what we think this baby is going to be. The poll results were 50/50 boy girl. Also there were two votes for don't find out. I still haven't decided on whether or not I will, but we still have a little less than 6 weeks until my next ultrasound, so I have time to decide.

On other topics, Kris and I had a crazy weekend. After work on Friday, we drove the six plus hours to get to his mothers house. We spent the night. Socialized a little, got some sleep. Had breakfast and were back on the road, towards KC. On the way we stopped in a little town of Abeline and ate awesome fried chicken, at a place called Brookeville Hotel. If you are ever driving thru Kansas you should stop there. Its the best fried chicken diner ever. I also love their coleslaw. Kris doesn't like regular coleslaw and even he likes this stuff. The meal is also served with creamed corn, mashed potatoes and gravy, cottage cheese, and other condiments. Ice cream is also served if you left room for it.

Anyway We made it to KCMO for a wedding of a childhood friend of Kris'. This was very exciting for him, to be able to catch up with old friends. Any wedding that we are able to attend while he is home, we do.

So Sunday we started our almost 10 hour drive back here to CO. We stopped back in his home town to have lunch with his dad for Fathers day. Also to pick up Kyle who was being babysat for the night by his Mima. By the time we got home on Sunday night none of us really wanted to do anything. I am sick of being in the car. I have been avoiding anything longer than a 5 minute car trip all week.

One other thing this road trip made me thankful for is dry heat. I forgot just how humid it gets in Kansas. I swear it feels like a 20 -30 degree deference between our two states.

Boy or Girl???

So with Kyle we didn't find out what we were having. This drove people nuts. This time round people keep asking us if we are going to find out. I am still on the fence. Kris wants to know, and he wants to know now.

What do you think, should we find out? And do you think its a boy or a girl? I am going to attempt to put a poll up to see what you guys think. Please vote. You can choose more than one answer. Just don't pick boy and girl. ;)

Why is it that now that I am into the second trimester when I am supposed to be feeling better, I seem to be feeling worse?

Why is it that I am now throwing up every day? Even tho I didn't throw up once in the first 12 weeks?

Why is it that I look like I am about 20 weeks pregnant even if I'm not quite at 14?

Why? Why? Why? That's what I want to know.

Big Announcement

So our big Announcement is that we are expecting Baby #2. We are due December 21st, so we will be having a Christmas baby. I had my first ultra sound today. The baby looks good. Its heart was beating strongly, at 169 beats per minute. Our baby is about 3 inches long from its butt to its head. The baby was moving quite a bit, and wasn't cooperating so the tech could get the proper measurements. I told Kris those must be his genes, since I would never be difficult like that. ;) Our only hopes is this baby will be strong and healthy. And maybe be a bit smaller at birth than Kyle was (9.8 lbs).

My SSIL came thru her surgery with flying colors. Her vein is now 100% open, as opposed to 60%, after the emergency fix. They were also able to completely stop all her bleeding. And remove a large blood clot in her leg. They also put in a filter to stop any other clots that may occur from reaching her lungs, which if that happened could be deadly. She is getting moved out of the ICU today, and all things are looking up. Thank you very much for all your thoughts and prayers.

I finally got Kyles 3 year old pictures taken today. Only a month late. I don't know what took me so long to get around to it, but better late than never. Right? So here are a couple of my favs. The girls at the portrait studio did a real good job, considering Kyle hates to have his picture taken. Usually when you break out the camera he immediately turns around so you can only get pictures of the back of his head. Getting him to sit sill is even more of a chore. He doesn't want to do anything that you want him to.

Prayers Please

I am asking you to send out your prayers for my step sister in law (ssil) today. On Monday she had a routine surgery, and the doctor nicked a vein. She lost a lot of blood, and has been in the ICU every since. Today they are going to go back in and try to repair the damage properly. They did what they could at the time, but it was not a long term solution. So I am asking that you please send out some prayers todayfor my ssil, that this operation goes smoothly, and all this drama can be over with.

So yes I have no life, but I thought this was hilarious.

So it is the Octo-mom slamming Kate from Jon and Kate plus 8. It also turns out that Octo-mom has signed a reality television deal. All I can imagine is that show is going to be such a train wreck. I guess I'll stop gossiping now, but I just couldn't hold it in.
