Holiday Activities

Today we received our long awaited bed frame. As "we" (Dave) prepared to take on the task of assembling the bed on this Halloween day, we started to get into the Holiday spirit. We cranked the itunes onto Pandora station "Christmas song", read the story Santa's Moose over breakfast, Christmas sweatshirts made an appearance, and Elf magically appeared on our TV. To top it off, snow! :)

Moose, resting up for our big Holiday evening.

Dave seems puzzled by the larger puzzle at hand.

I didn't do too much helping

Because Dave obviously had it under control.

 In other news, I have received requests for a photo of the bump. Here is my tummy at 16 weeks of growing a baby. Thanks for being interested in our lives!!


160 beats per minute

We had a baby appointment today. As much as we wanted to see that little bun in my oven, they didn't let us. Instead, they put cold goo on my belly and pushed a doppler around until they found the babies heartbeat. 160 bpm. Doctor said normal heart rate is 120-160. Which means ours seems a little on the high end. What does that mean? We have a few possibilities:

1. The baby is beginning its lifelong habit of pushing boundaries, shattering limitations, and going where no baby has gone before.

2. The baby just finished 10 laps around my uterus.

3. The baby is really excited for December 15th when we get to find out if the baby is a he or a she!
