Behemoth Cheeseburger Challenge

Erik and some friends from work decided it would be a good idea to tr a Behemoth eating challenge.  There were 4 guys who attempted to eat a 3 pound cheeseburger and a pound of french fries.  Unfortunately, none of the guys finished the challenge, but Erik made it the farthest.  Here are some pictures from the day

21 week check up

I had another ultrasound yesterday.  When I had my other one at the beginning of the month, there were some parts of her body that the technician couldn't see, so we had to try again.  We are still having a girl.  :)  (Thank goodness because we've already rearranged Kayleigh's room to add the crib for her sister!)  The technician also gave the baby a 100% on her anatomy test.  She was moving a lot during the ultrasound, and it was so neat to get to see her movements AND feel them at the same time!  Although she was so active, her heartbeat was "only" 142 bpm.  The technician estimated her due date as December 5th.  Her official due date is the 6th of December, so she's growing at a good pace.  I just hope she'll hold on so we can have our c-section on November 30th!
We are so happy to be having another healthy baby!

21 Weeks

I am 21 weeks now, and looked nice last night, so I had Erik get a belly pic.  I was feeling bigger thank this picture shows!  I was surprised that my belly wasn't sticking out farther.  I guess I still have time for it to grow.  :)
I can't believe there are just over 4 months until we get to meet our little girl!

Activity pool

Our city has a public pool, including a fun activity pool for the kids. I hadn't taken the kids this summer until Jenna called me earlier this week to tell me they had time for kids 5 and under. It wasn't very crowded, and the kids had a great time. I was a little nervous with 2 kids and them getting away from me in the water, but they did great. I just had to make sure to keep my eye on the two of them. We went twice this week with plans to go again soon.

Tickled pink

We are so excited to announce that we are having another girl!  Kayleigh is excited, but Brian is a little disappointed.  He says that he's excited to have a baby, but he also wants a boy.  I keep saying he'll be glad he doesn't have to share a room.  It would be nice for him to have a little brother since they would be closer in age, but we are just happy that the baby is healthy.
We had a great ultrasound.  She was covering her face, so we didn't get a great look at it.  That means that when I go for my next appointment I'll get another ultrasound.  The technician needs to see her face and have another look at her heart.  We could see all of the chambers of her heart, and it was beating at a smooth 140 beats per minute, but since I am not quite 18 weeks, the technician wants to see it again.  I think she can get a better picture of it if it's a little bigger.  Everything else looks healthy.  We saw 10 fingers and 10 toes.
I'll post an ultrasound picture after my next appointment.  Because of the baby's position, we didn't get any good profile pictures.  Hopefully she'll be more cooperative next time!

Oink! Oink!

Before we headed to Jacksonville on Wednesday, we went to see our friends' pigs. One of the sows just had piglets, so we wanted to see them. There were some who loved to get out of their pen, and were there to greet us when we got there. They were all so excited to eat the food we brought for them and were making a lot of noise to make sure we knew they were hungry!

Brian liked seeing the pigs, too!
