They are...

2 GIRLS AND A BOY! The babies are labeled A, B, and C. The babies are sort of stacked in there. Baby A is the lowest on the stack and more on my left side. Baby B is in the middle and more on my right side. And Baby C is located on the top kind of to my left side and middle. Babies A and C are the girls and poor Baby B who is stuck in the middle is our boy. During the ultrasound on Friday (May 9th), Baby C was kicking baby A in the head with both feet! Let the sibling fights begin! All of the babies seem to be having a party in my belly, as I have really been feeling them move the last couple of weeks or so.

Here are some ultrasound pictures. Some of them picutres look like blobs, but I can make out a few of them. I think if you click on the picutres, you can enlarge them. (If you enlarge the pictures, hit the back button on your browser to go back to the blog. If you "x" out, you will close your browser window). The pictures say at the bottom of each picture what the picture is supposed to be. Good luck making sense of them.

The next picture is supposed to be a picture of all 3 babies. The top picture sort of shows all three babies. The bottom picture is supposed to be of all three heads. The ultrasound tech/nurse whatever she is called labeled the babies so the letter is right next to their heads or on the edge of their heads.

It snowed May 9th!

We went to bed on May 9th, and it was snowing out! It must have snowed a while, as we got up the next morning to 3-4 inches of snow. So we took Cayden out to play in the snow for a little while.

Then, I thought I would show Cayden how to make a snow angel. I made the mistake of giving Scott the camera, and this is the beautiful picture he took. He insisted that I put this picture on here, so I gave in. You all want a belly picture, well, here it is!

And here is the outcome of my snow angel.

20 Week Belly Picture

Here's a couple more belly shots for everyone to see. This is me at 20 weeks. I have people asking me when I'm due. They are quite shocked when I tell them that I am at 20 weeks. I feel like I'm ready to pop, and I'm only half way there!

What an imagination...

One night recently Cayden was not in a big hurry to go to sleep. I heard him making noises in his room, so I thought I would check on him. Cayden informed that he was watching TV. Apparently, his pillow is his pretend TV. The things that kids come up with.

18 Weeks Belly Picture

I've had requests for some belly pictures. So here is one of my belly at 18 weeks (which was around April 25th).

Train Ride Home From MN

Here's Cayden and his Daddy acting too cool on the train ride home. The train ride home was so rocky and bumpy. We got a sleeper car. Cayden and I slept on the bottom and Scott slept on the top. Scott said that there were a couple of times where he felt like he was going to roll of the top. There was a cargo net that I guess was supposed to keep him from falling all the way down, but Scott didn't think it was going to help.

Minneapolis Trip April 18-20

The reasons for our trip were to see Auntie Lisa and Family and also to see the Backyardigans. Well, Cayden also thinks that when he gets to see Auntie Lisa, he also gets to make a visit to Chuck E. Cheese. Unfortunately, we couldn't take any pictures at the Backyardigans Live, but Cayden and cousins Addy and Ash all seemed to really like the show.

Here's our trip to Chuck E. Cheese. In the back row is Scott and Auntie Lisa, the second row left to right is Cousin Addy, Cayden and Cousin Ash. Uncle Greg was driving, and that's my finger on the left side of the screen. Ooops.

Here's just some pictures of Cayden with Chuck E. Cheese.

Update from April 18

So, I'm falling way behind in my updating, but I made my mind up to start some updating this weekend. On April 18th Scott, Cayden and I loaded into the train to go to Minneapolis to see The Backyardigans Live. Cayden is our typical little boy. He was so excited about riding on the train. It didn't matter that it was 10 pm when we finally got going, he wasn't about to go to sleep. This is Cayden before we left. Grandma was standing outside waving to him.

This is Cayden saying goodbye to Grandma on my cell phone.
