I know it's been a long time but I've had morning sickness (all day, of course) for about a month now. That's how long it lasted with John, but it started a lot earlier this time so there's still no end in sight. I'm almost 11 weeks pregnant and will have my first ultrasound on Tuesday the 15th; we can't wait to hear the heartbeat and see our new little peanut! S/he should be about the size of a grape this week and that little grape is making me pudgy! I already dug out all my maternity clothes and started wearing them since my other pants were just too tight!
Well John has been growing and learning so much lately, it's hard to keep up! He's quite a chatterbox these days and loves repeating words over and over again, just to make sure he has them right I guess. He still loves his crib and going to bed more than anything since he only gets his loveys and paci's in bed, but it's quite a blessing to have a child who begs for sleep sometimes! Our favorite thing to do during the day is sing and dance. John loves the ABCs, the Itsy Bitsy Spider, and I'm a Little Teapot, and sings some of the words right along with me (but mostly A B B A B C B B B...he loves the first 3 letters of the alphabet and only sings those when we do that song!) He has learned where the baby is, though sometimes he points to his own tummy when we ask him "Where's the baby?" It's really cute, though I don't think he actually grasps the concept, nor will he anytime soon.
Isaac has been working A LOT! He got a great job at LA Fitness right next to our house doing what he loves best...sales! He sells gym memberships and has already been "pre-promoted" to the Weekend General Manager after only 9 days of being there! He will find out for sure after this weekend if he "proved" himself to be worthy of the position, but we know he can do it. He has been working about 58 hours per week, which has been hard on us all, but it was a blessing to get the job and the extra hours during our tough season so we're all working through this trying time.
Here's some pictures from Christmas...very late, but hey, don't complain, you're not sick all day right? Thanks for being patient w/ me.
"Thanks for my cool Cars stickers cousins Jake and Warren, they're great!"
Sorry we don't have any pictures from Christmas day at the Stegmans, I forgot my camera and don't have time right now to dig around Kathy's Picasa site for some good ones. Maybe eventually I'll put some up...don't hold your breath.
