Still here, just busy. Yesterday, we had my doctors appointment and got to see the little one again. The doctor tried to hear the heartbeat on the doppler, but it's still a bit too early to hear anything but my own loud heart. We decided to do the ultra sound to make sure everything was looking okay. The baby had gone from looking like a gummy bear that was hard to make out to a little person (kinda). I was able to make out the head and the little nubs for arms and legs. SO COOL. While we watched, he or she hopped around a bit. We could see the flashing light on its chest which was its strong heart beat. I am now 10 weeks. I'm counting down the days for my skin to stop looking like you can play connect the dots. Freakin' hormones.
This weekend was a lot of fun. We were able to go to our Wenatchee house for the first time since it closed. We spent most of the time buying things to make it livable and deciding what the next projects were going to be to finish up the house and landscaping. We'd been stressing about how we were going to put a lawn in and keep it watered when we weren't going to be there that often, and Mike came up with the brilliant idea of Dream Turf. A composite lawn that never gets mowed or watered and will always look great. Awesome. Not nearly as expensive and labor intensive as installing a sprinkler system and planting grass. We want to hurry and put up our fence so we can start bringing Titan with us. He would love it there. Unfortunately, there's so much dirt in the back, that dog would be filthy. This weekend we're going to go back and start taking measurements for the fence and price out pools. We'll probably look at the cost of everything and decide that living with our dirt pile back yard might be the most cost effective way to go.
