John Chris can feel the baby move

I have been feeling our little man move and kick for a couple of weeks now. I have been wanting to share this special feeling with John Chris, but he has not been able to feel any movement. I was trying to get comfortable and get some sleep, but our little man was warming up for a soccer game. I decided to wake John Chris to see if he could feel him. The second John Chris touched my belly he could feel the baby kick. It was such a sweet and memorable moment. The best yet!

Trip to LSU game

We made a last minute trip to see LSU play Ole Miss. We had great seats, but it was a terrible game. The Tigers lost to the Rebels.

We had a great time visiting with Cory and LeAnn. It was so nice to spend time with them and catch up.

GRRRRRR. What a hot Tiger!

We passed this fine car during our journey. Gotta love Louisiana!

Mr. & Mrs. Anderson - It's Official!

John Chris and I traveled to Pensacola, FL for Emily and Jeffery's wedding. The beach was amazing, and it was almost empty this time of year. We stayed at The Beach Club, and it was gorgeous.
I was so excited to make Emily's bridal bouquet. It was very special honor for me, and she loved it.

John Chris took this sweet picture of his sister, Emily. He took it in black and white, and it turned out beautiful.

The wedding was at sunset on the beach. It was a romantic setting perfect for getting married.

The weather was great until our last day. A cold front came in, and we braved the freezing temperature for one last chance to be on the beach at sunset.

A great end to an awesome trip.

Nursery furniture

We ordered the crib and dresser/changing station for the nursery. We found a nice solid,sturdy set at Ooh Baby. It is dark expresso brown, and we think it will look great with the bedding we have picked out. It takes 8-12 weeks to come in, so we are not converting the extra bedroom just yet.
We hear that little ones like to chew on their furniture when they are teething. Ummmm. NO!

I can feel the baby move!

I can finally feel the baby move! It is normal to feel early movement between 16 to 20 weeks. I was starting to get concerned the closer to 20 weeks I got. I first felt him move at 181/2 weeks. It is an awesome feeling, and I am absolutely beside myself. I can't wait until John Chris can feel him too.

Quad screen

I went to the doctor last week for my quad screen blood test. The test looks for signs of Down Syndrome, Trisomy 18, and other defects. The nurse called to inform me that the results were negative! John Chris and I were very pleased, and we celebrated by ordering nursery furniture.
