Ultrasound Appointment...

I'm 13 weeks and 4 days today, almost in the second trimester. We have decided that we would like to have a 3-D/4-D ultrasound with this baby. I remember hearing about them when I was pregnant but I don't remember there be a place close by that did them. I had told my husband if we ever had another kid I wanted to have one because they are so neat. He agreed that it would be cool so we have decided to have one done as our anniversary present. The ultrasound is schuduled for March 7th and I can't wait to go! They say that they can do gender determinations at 15 weeks and I will almost be 16 weeks. I'm hoping that the little one will work with us and let us know what he or she is. But the best part will be to get to see that little baby bouncing around in there. We are bringing Maddie with us since she is the big sister and we want to involve her as much as possible. I can't wait to see her reaction to seeing the baby in mommy's belly. I will share all the info after the appointment.

12 Weeks......

I'm 12 weeks along now. I don't really feel pregnant, unless I over do it. I am more tired than before I was pregnant and the morning sickness seems to be gone. I'm getting excited now.
A few days ago I found out that one of the mom's in Madison's class is expecting too. This morning her son came through the gate at school yelling for Madison, "Maddie, I going to have a baby brother!" It was so cute. He was so excited. It's exciting to know that soon we will know whether Maddie will be having a little brother or sister. The lady at school is 19 weeks along. I don't know when I will find out the sex of the baby but it's not too far away. I'm going to place a poll asking you all what you think it is.......... or leave a comment if you want, telling me what you think!

Anne Geddes

They have an Anne Geddes store at disney. I loved the store. I could spend lots of money there. Here is a picture of my favorite thing in the store. (Which I bought, one for me and one for Maddie. We also got another doll but I don't have a picture of it yet. )

here is a close second........

Maddie's Bithday Cakes

We decided to take Madison to Disney for her 6th birthday. I decided the make her a cake the day before since I didn't think she would have a cake on her birthday at Disney. I decided to make a mini princess cake, Sleeping Beauty. I made the cake the day before and we sang her "Happy Birthday" in the morning before we left. Birthday cake for only have one birthday a year, why not.

Once we got to Disney we knew that we had to try to get in at Ariel's Grotto because we heard that you can find Sleeping Beauty there. It would be tragic to go to Disneyland and not get to see her. They had two opening so we took one. We visited with the Princesses and then they brought Maddie out a birthday cake and sang to her. Wow two birthday cakes......
Later that night headed back to the hotel for a bit to relax before going out to grab dinner. Just as we were about the walk out of the hotel it started to rain and no one wanted to walk back to the park and get soaked so we decided to go to Goofy's Kitchen since it was super close by. We only had to wait about five minutes even though we didn't have a reservation. We enjoyed the dinner and visiting with characters, then they brought Maddie out a cake and sang "Happy Birthday."
Needless to say Princess Madison got the royal treatment on her birthday. She has a "dream come true day." Quoted from the Princess herself.
