The Big Day

Well, today was the day for our first appointment with Dr. Owens. I was so nervous--I'm not really sure why, but I could not wait to make sure that everything was going well. Everything is PERFECT!! She immediately found the heartbeat and it was 172 BPM. She said that if we believed in old wives tales then we would be having a girl (they told me this when I was pregnant with Cooper too!). We also got to have an ultrasound today. I think I could have 20 babies and it would still be the most amazing thing to see that little tiny baby up on the screen. At first the baby was asleep and after she nudged it a couple of times it started moving all around. It was awesome! I go back on March 12th and she said she will try her best to let me know if it is a boy or girl at that visit. I can't wait!!!

Our scanner is not working so I am not able to scan the 1st picture of our little "turtle bug" (that is what Cooper and Emily have named the baby for now). This is a picture of Emily from a few nights ago. She fell asleep like this and I thought it was so cute.

Finally....A Fun Day!!!

After not feeling well at all on Friday, I was worried that I would not be able to enjoy the beautiful day we were supposed to have on Saturday. Thank goodness that I was feeling better by Saturday morning and even better today (oh how I pray that this is the end of not feeling well!).

We had an absolutely beautiful day on Saturday. It was in the mid 60's and you just wanted to be outside enjoying it! We went to downtown Little Rock and went to the new park. It was SO much fun! Cooper said "this park is so awesome....I want to come here everyday!". The park had a really big slide, lots of tunnels to go through, rocks to climb on, and neat views of the river. The only downfall was that there was so much to do that it was easy to lose track of the kids (which was a little scary!). We decided we would always need to have as many adults as kids when at this park so that nobody would get lost (or taken!).

We truly had a perfect day together as a family. We are looking forward to warmer weather and more days like this to come.

I thought these pictures were really neat of Cooper going down the slide
