Little Heartbeat!

I ordered a Sonoline B Fetal Heart Rate Monitor from about 4 days ago and it arrived in the mail last night.  It is the most amazing thing ever to be able to listen in on my little one's heartbeat whenever I feel like it.  We listened last night and it was the first time Steve had gotten to hear the baby ever.  It was such a special moment.  Then I listened in this morning, and baby made me laugh.  I found it right away, but then baby was swimming all over the place so it was hard to keep listening.  I guess I have an active little one growing inside me! Oh, and for old wives sake, the heartrate has been about 155-163

Thinking about Christmas...

For those of you who know me, you know that I love Christmas and start counting down for the holidays to begin usually by the end of July.  This year it is starting even sooner, but for a much different reason.  Steve and I will be getting the best Christmas present ever this year, and I am trying SO hard not to wish the summer away.  I am finally getting around to sharing this news on my blog, and am going to try to start back up with regular posts now that I'm feeling better.

Here is a picture of our little one at 10weeks and 3days! 

This was the first time I saw the baby and it was definitely an emotional experience watching my baby floating around inside of me.  It was also somewhat unnerving because I still looked exactly the same, hadn't gained any weight (maybe 1lb), and couldn't feel anything!  Steve didn't get to go because he is way to busy at work :(  But he will get to go to the gender scan, which will be even more exciting.  I got to hear the heartbeat at 10weeks 5days and it was so amazing.  I can't even describe how crazy it is for this to all be real!

a little bump!

Other than thinking about baby 24/7, I have been working at REI, sewing, and being out in the sun as much as possible!  Hope your summers are going great too! :)

Memorial Day across the bay

Steve got a day off work so we headed down to Homer to visit family. It was so fun! We spent the night with Steve's brother and family, then hitched a ride on a water taxi to spent two days at Steve's dads across the bay. It was a peaceful, beautiful trip and I wish I was back there right now, watching the sunset from the cabin. We went kayaking and brought home some fresh halibut too. What a great trip! I forgot my camera though :( here are a few phone pics, and I'll add some more when my father in law sends me some of the pictures he took. Oh and PS...happy June!
