After I got home from work last night, J and I decided to go to a movie. We hadn't been out for fun for weeks! It was nice to come home, have dinner, and do something other than go straight to bed. There wasn't much playing (at a good time) that we wanted to see, so we decided to see Dear John. Um, yeah, I thought it was somewhat lame and not as good as The Notebook.
When we got home, we stayed up waiting for the Bonus Fairy to visit us. We booked our trip to DC and are SO excited! Orbitz had an awesome package deal and 5 nights of our hotel was cheaper than our flights. From April 1-April 6, this will be our home http://www.washingtoncourthotel.com/
I finally went to sleep about 3:00 this morning and woke up at 6:15 to get ready for a pre-appointment breakfast with the hub. Breakfast was great! The Egg and I has a yummy egg white omelette that I love (not as much as I would love french toast or something buttery and syrupy). We had some time between breakfast and our appointment, so we hit Target and got birthday gifts for Katelynn (1) and Courtney's (3) birthday party tomorrow! It should be a fun shin dig. The first pool party of the season!
In our baby's world:
We met with Dr. Nisbet today for a check up. It was so short and quick! The nurse (didn't really have a personality at all) pulled out the doppler. After a short speech from the nurse about how it would take her a few minutes to find the heartbeat, she placed the doppler down and within seconds, the most amazing sound of all (one I've heard many times before, but this time was SO different) the whirring that I was anxiously waiting to hear! 140 beats per minute of wonderful!
-Your heart was beating loud and strong today
-The placenta has kicked in completely and is giving you everything you need
-Some research indicates that you can taste foods I'm eating. Yesterday you enjoyed a McDonald's cheeseburger and fries
-You are likely sucking your thumb
-You have little nails on your fingers and toes. Will there be manis and pedis in your future?
