I can't believe that I did not post one thing in the month of March and we are half way through April...shame on me. So much has happened. Well, I am in my 16th week of pregnancy #2, we have our ultrasound/sonogram appointment set up for May 14th. Daniel wants to know the sex of this baby (he wants a boy) and I am on the fence. I think it would be neat not to find out, but I don't want to stop Daniel if he wants to know. I think it is another girl because I was so sick a few weeks ago. Knock on wood, this is the first week that I HAVEN'T gotten sick in four weeks.
In the middle of March, Daniel and I took our first vacation without Elli. We went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with our good friends Mike and Ellen (who also left their daughter for the first time.) We left Elli in North Carolina with Daniel's parents and she had a blast. She started crawling while we were away and is now a tornado in our house...we can't turn out head for a second and she is off, pulling herself up on everything that she can (tables, chairs, legs, etc.)
Elli had her 9 month appointment and she weighed in at 23 lbs, and 31inches long. She is growing like a weed. She is feeding herself with her bottle and sippy cup. She eats more and more table food, but she still likes her sweet potatoes. She is on a pretty regular schedule and I have been trying to move her bed time up to 7pm.
Right before Easter I was in a car accident. I was hit from behind by a big Chevy truck and it totalled my car. So, we found a new(er) car. We purchased a 2005 Toyota Camry. It gets great gas mileage and that is what I need right now to get me back and forth to work (the two days that I go into the office.) This picture is the night we purchased the car, Elli is playing with the car keys.
Anyway, another big milestone in our lives happened this week. We FINALLY got our building permit. We signed our construction loan and we are finalizing our house plans at the end of this week. Hopefully, within 6-8 weeks we will be out of the townhouse and in the new house. I can't wait...
