Oh my gosh!

Okay so I had my ultrasound today and everthing looks good! The baby is right on track and I am 20 weeks along. We got a ton of pictures, but we don't have a scanner so I don't know how to post them. So I just posted this picture of Vance instead. Anyway, the funniest part of the whole things was when the doctor said, "Well Alison, if this baby is a boy, then you're going to have to buy him a penis," ha ha! Don't worry, it's not a he/she. We're haveing a girl, hence the purple text!!! I can't believe it. I was totally in the 'boy' frame of mind. I just don't see myself with a little girl. But we are very excited! I didn't even have any solid girl names, just boys. That's going to be a lot of fun though.

Pregnancy Update

Okay, I have been such a slacker about posting about this pregnancy. I guess there just hasn't been much to tell yet. Everything has been good. I've a bit More nauseous and tired than I was with Vance, and that part doesn't seem to be over quite yet. I'm almost 19 weeks according to the doctor, but my counter on the blog says I'm 20 weeks. Either way, I'm due February 11. I don't have any pics of my belly yet because I hardly see Darren and when I do, I forget to ask him to take some pics. But I will say that I am showing. I thought I would be huge because I popped out right away it seemed. But now I'm probably like I was with Vance. I could feel the movement a lot earlier though, at about 15 weeks, so that was cool. My goal is to work out the whole time so we'll see if I make it. I can't stand paying for my gym membership and not going, even if I hate it. The most exciting part happens tomorrow when we find out what we're having. I can't wait! I'll be sure to post about that.

Labor Day

This year Labor Day was special because I finally got to have some of my family at my house. Usually Darren and I are the couple that goes everywhere, so it was nice to have them here for once. Emily and her husband came down with their 3 kids, and my parents met us here. Our house wasn't the most ideal size for all of us, but we made it work. We had so much fun! Vance loved having all the kids around for built in entertainment. When we have company, I hardly hear from him bacause he's so happy! Next time, we need to get babysitters so we can have some adult time!! Here are just a few things we did together!

You can't tell, but we are actaully at the Shark Reaf Aquarium at the Mandalay Bay. Vance was in heaven and Ethan thought the fish were stinky!

Brittany and Taylor on the Choo Choo. I love this pic!

With all the kids it was hard to do a lot of running around so we did a bit of hanging out at my house. Doesn't Eddie look so excited! This is in our back yard. Grass would be nice but this kids don't seem to mind it too much. We had a kiddie pool and they thought we were at Sun Splash! Thanks for coming guys! I hope we get to see you again soon!

My 2 Boys!

I just had to post this because I think it is so adorable that they're matching. And this was just a cool time at the lake to take pictures. Vance is totally a water boy. I love my 2 boys!!
