New Baby Pictures!!!

We went to the Genetics Doctor to do some counseling and tests to make sure that the baby does not have Noonan's Syndrome or any form of it as well as some other common disorders! Since my family has a history of some of these disorders, we are taking all the precautions. One of the great things about going through all of these tests is that we get to have extra ultrasounds :)

This past week, we went to one of our extra ultrasounds and got to see the baby in much more detail...Jonathan was like a kid in a candy shop he was so excited!

Here are the pictures:

 It was moving up a storm, its straightening its back here :)

This is one of my favorites cause you can see the arms and legs!

It has its Daddy's head already :)

Our next ultrasound is scheduled for June 3rd, this is when they will take an in depth look at the four chambers of the heart and make sure there are no visible defects. Not that it would matter but it may help us be better prepared in case there was something to worry about.

The more exciting part though, is that it will be such an in depth ultrasound that if we want to know the sex of our baby, we will get to find out early :) And Jonathan DEFINITELY wants to know so I think I will let him have this victory, he has kinda convinced me and now I want to know too! Its so much easier if I know whether or not to buy blue or pink!

The Flowers are Blooming!

Well, I know I talk about flowers and spring a lot, but I just love it! My yard and garden look so fabulous right now with all the rain we got and now the sunshine :) Beautiful blooms are opening up everywhere, its spectacular!

This is a miniature rose bush that we got on clearance last year! It was a twig when we brought it home and now look at it, in full bloom!

The wisteria looks even grander now that it has leaves along with the gorgeous purple flowers!

In our front yard, the azaleas are in FULL bloom, you can hardly see the leaves because there are so many pink flowers...

The pansies are also gladly showing their colors. When we planted them, we were less than two weeks away from getting married so white was on the mind :)

My one Easter decoration is out! The cabbage plants are also blooming, little yellow flowers, who knew cabbage could have such pretty flowers?

Our Japanese Maple is only a year old and its HUGE! Everyone told us it was a slow grower and wouldn't get big fast, but it has doubled its size this past year! The color is its brightest red this time of year!

Don't mind the port-a-potty behind it, they are finishing a brand new home across the street, we are very excited about the prospect of living in a finished neighborhood! Although our newest new neighbors are a tad bit annoying seeing as they own four very large dogs and don't believe in bark collars. We keep to ourselves though so life is great!

I love spring! I wish it could be this beautiful all the time!
