Giving Thanks

First of all, I just realized that I hadn't updated the blog since our Ultrasound. We went in for it a week ago, and I could feel that something just wasn't right when the tech was doing the exam. We had decided before the appointment that we would actually find out the sex of the baby, but it just wasn't in the cards. We don't know if it was the position of the baby (or the fact that he/she would not stop moving), or what, but the U/S just didn't come out very clear in a lot of areas. I called my OB with concerns later that day, and he said that he didn't see anything of concern but we should probably make an appointment with a Perinatologist. I had my regular OB appointment on Tuesday, and he said that after our conversation he had spoken with the tech and they both have some concerns. Needless to say, we're a little freaked out at this point. We really don't know if there is something wrong, or if the doctor is being overly cautious. We will find out more on December 11th. Until then all that we can do is pray, and count down the days. I'll be sure to update after our appointment.

For Thanksgiving we had a really fun day. The fact the the Lions got massacred didn't stop me from enjoying my day. To be honest, I had expected that kind of outcome. We started out with donuts and the parade. This is the first year that the kids actually cared about it, and it was so cute to see them get excited over the huge balloons. After that, we went to Michael's mom's house for our Thanksgiving "lunch". Jovie didn't stop eating the entire time. A few hours later we went to Thanksgiving "dinner" at my mom's house. Jovie didn't stop eating there either, and even asked for "chips" after the table is cleared. I have no idea how she is so tiny with as much food as she puts away. She is a huge fan of Thanksgiving now. It's amazing to see how the holidays get more fun as the kids get older. I just don't want them to ever outgrow it.

This morning, Michael and my mom hit Walmart with the crowds, and scored practically everything on our list. I don't know how he does it, but he got us some great deals. We've spent the rest of the day lounging. Here's to an awesome December!
