New Baby in the Family!!!

We became Aunt Kristin and Uncle Nick today!
Our little one has its first cousin.

Kara and Carl (my sister and brother-in-law) welcomed Carl John Heyne V to the world today at 5:56 AM. He weighed a substantial 7lbs. 7ozs. and towered above his peers in the nursery at 20 3/4 in. Both Mom and Baby are doing great. Dad's doing well too.

We're visiting him now and he's super cute. Pictures to be posted soon.

5 Months!!!

So yesterday Kris hit 5 months....over halfway!!  18 weeks to go.

Highlights since our last highlights:
  • Kris went a whooping 25 days without getting sick in the morning (the streak was recently broken with a little slip up the other day, but we're blaming it on a rough  elevator ride.  She does work on the 33rd floor).
  • Her 14 day cold is finally on its way out (the fun just keeps on coming).
  • She's started to be able to feel the baby (as noted below), but I haven't had the excitement yet.
  • We've just about completed the research we need to do for our baby furniture and main baby needs (stroller, car seat, etc.).
  • We narrowed down our name list to a small selection for each gender and NO we are not telling.
  • I'm thinking about investing some money in Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme for the baby's college fund seeing we're currently keeping them in business, or at least Kris is.

It's Alive!!!

Kris says she thinks she can feel the baby moving!! Its about the right time, but still to early for me to feel... :(.

This baby thing is actually starting to feel real.

20 Week Ultrasound

We went to the hospital today for our 20 week ultrasound. This is the one where they do the full anatomy screening, measuring all the parts and saying, "oh, that looks good..." They also could have told us whether it was a boy or girl, but we decided to hold out for the surprise, so we had to turn our heads when they got to that part.

Following that, we went to the ob/gyn for kris' check-up....everything is looking good. Kris is up 7 pounds total, doctor thought that was good. Baby weighs 12 ounces and has a 148 bpm heartbeat. Another new stat is the doctor has our due date in all the paperwork as 12/25, not the 12/27 we thought after our dating ultrasound. I look at this as a good thing, seeing only 4% of babies are born on their due dates. Either way, we're going to have an awesome Christmas this year.

We've posted an album on Picasa, including our 'clay baby' pictures (a.k.a. 3D sonogram). Click on the pic below to check them out.
