Blogging Shortage

A lot has happened around here since that last time I blogged, although that wasn't very long ago. I try to blog once, maybe twice a week. I enjoy blogging, it's like talking to that friend who doesn't care what you say :)

Well my wonderful husband turned 22 last Tuesday. It was a good day, even though I had to work. I got home early enough to start supper which was supposed to consist of Steak, mashed potatoes, peas and homemade biscuits... Key word, supposed to. A flat tired ruined on T's ranch pickup ruined that, along with my good mood so we ended up having steak and mac n cheese.

Wednesday night we went into town to stay with my folks for Thanksgiving and they had another, much more successful supper for T. Thanksgiving was great, lots of good food and lots of time with family made it worth while. Although, Saturday morning I was ready to sleep in my own bed. :)

T had off till Sunday, so his sister and brother-in-law came down for the night. It was a short trip but it was good to get to see every them. Their little ones are so dang cute! Can' wait for mine to get here.

Today I was supposed to clean the house and finish laundry, but I decided to go with T instead to check waters.

I'm not really myself tonight. I guess a sore throat and runny nose will do that to ya. I really hope that I'm not getting sick, but I think it's too late. And, I've had the blues the last couple of days, not the baby blues, just hormonal blues. I'm sure some of you can relate.

Well, I think I'll get off now and eat supper. The baby is hungry :)

It's a... Oh yeah it's definitely a Boy!!

Yes, it's a boy! We are having a little boy! Or that's what the U/T tech told us.. And it was pretty clear that its a boy, kinda hard not to miss!

Anyways... when we got to the hospital, they got us checked right into radiology and in no time we were looking at our little one on a screen. I had a female tech this time, instead of the hippie cowboy I had last time, and she was a lot gentler! She checked to see what it was first thing, and it took her all of about 2 seconds to figure out it was boy! Like I said earlier, it was kind of hard not to miss. For me anyways, T didn't hear what she said and but he soon figured it out. She first measured me, then the baby's head, abdomen, and femur bone, to see how far along he was. He weight 1 lb 5 oz right now and is 22 weeks and 5 days along. It's amazing what technology can do these days! To see how much he weights just by the length and size of certain things!

This is a profile picture of him

His foot!

The little guy was being awfully shy though, he had managed to wedge himself in the very lower right part of my belly, curling up in a tiny little ball and using my bladder as a pillow. She showed us the spine and he was really curled up, in a very tight little ball! When she was measuring the top of the head, you could see a foot right next to it! It's crazy how flexible he seems to be!

This one is hard to make out, but there is only face there, not two! If you look in the upper left corner you can see his nostrils, and to the right of that his mouth is open. It looked like he was sucking when we were watching him, opening and closing his mouth. Oh and he had the hiccups!

Here is another one of his face, he has his hand up by his mouth and his head rested on my bladder. (The large white thing at the bottom of screen. You can see his eyes, nose, and mouth and he looks like he is frowning!

I can't wait to meet him! March is never going to get here! Oh, and they moved my due date up, not very much but it is now March 10th. I have a feeling that he will be early but thats ok with me!

Now I bet your wondering about T and what he thinks. He is excited, but this morning he asked me if I was sure it was a boy. I'm pretty sure it is I told him. He admitted that he kind of wanted a little girl to love on, but he will get one one day! :)
 And here I am at 22 weeks. Showing just a little bit more. Well, I'm going to work on some things so ya'll have a great rest of the week. :)

Oh, and just in case your wondering, his name will be Keagan Tell Blackwell!

Sunday Evening Rambllings

Well it's Sunday evening, and T and I are just chillin, watching movies and visiting. I went to church this morning and had a wonderful pot luck dinner with everyone at church. I like going to church, even though I have to go by myself. Sometimes I can make for a long day and then I'm tired when I get home, but that's what Sunday evenings are for! Poor T had to get up and go to work this morning though, but luckily he was home by dinner.

Did everyone know about the end of daylight savings? Because I sure didn't... I was glad I called my mother this morning and found out that I was going to be an hour early to church! I guess that's what happens when you live in the middle of no where and don't talk to very many people (which I love by the way!) But it's all good now! The clocks are set back and life can go on.. maybe! Ha! T's boss won't change his time, so the ranch is still set an hour ahead. Makes me laugh because if you think about it, he is losing an extra hour of work out his already tired men! :)

Anyways, tomorrow I have my monthly doctors appointment. This appointment has been much waited upon, mainly because the doc is supposed to order an ultrasound so we can find out what we are having! Finally! And.. it's just like me, but in my book that has informed me more about pregnancy than anyone I've talked too (No offense mom!) it says that there is a window of time to find out what the sex is (16 to 22 weeks) and I'm right at the end of the window! If the baby gets to big then there is not enough room for the UT to see what it is. So I'm slightly freaking out. If I have any say in it, then hopefully Wednesday we will be finding out if we are having a little miss or a little mr. I can't wait! Oh, and T is coming with me! He says he doesn't care what his boss says, This is important!! Is it not?

Well, that is all the rambling I have for today. I rearranged my living room this past week and I have to finish picking up the pile of stuff thats found it's stuff on the floor. Not to mention my kitchen needs cleaning... again. Oh and supper needs cooked, I was thinking green Chile enchiladas! Adios ya'll! :)
