August Summary

Big event of the month: the premiere of Soapbox Theatre Company's first production, "Movin' Right Along" (the first annual Soapbox Comedy Revue)! It was a hit (for reviews and photos, go to www.soapboxtheatre.com and click on "Past Productions)! The goal: to break even. The outcome: profit!

Pregnancy Update (23 wks)

We cleared out most of the furniture, etc. from the spare bedroom and put the baby furniture together last night! It's starting to look like a nursery in there... so exciting!! The cats had fun playing in the packaging and exploring their new surroundings, but they have no idea what's about to hit 'em!

My parents were also here this weekend and they brought us a baby cradle my great-grandpa apparently made. Little Bean also got some adorable outfits from his Grandma K! I love little baby clothes... they are addictive!

Pregnancy Update (22 wks)

Here's a photo of me at 22 weeks (on the far right - pictured here with castmates of "Movin' Right Along").

We went on hospital tours last weekend to decide which hospital we wanted to deliver in. I think we picked Delnor. It was a little jolt of reality that this is really going to happen! We saw some newborn babies and they were so adorable. Only a few more months til it's our turn!

Pregnancy Update (21 wks)


We had our level 2 ultrasound yesterday. While I didn't make all the details of the reason for our 2nd ultrasound very public on this site to begin with, I thought I'd give an update. One of the reasons we had to have a 2nd ultrasound is because they thought they saw something in the right atrium of the baby's heart which wasn't quite right. Brian and I were concerned because, as many of you probably already know, Brian was born with a hole in his heart that they discovered his senior year of high school which had to be repaired via open heart surgery. So we were nervous going into the appointment, but we are happy to report today that our baby's heart (along with the rest of him) is completely normal and healthy. Yay! And we also got confirmation that it is DEFINITELY a boy.

Pregnancy Update (20 wks)

We spent the whole afternoon registering. It took us FOREVER because neither of us knew what the heck we were doing! But we finally got it done (for the most part) and we are now registered at Target (registry #011000840001009) and Babies R Us (registry #60964577). When we got home we actually SAW the baby kick for the first time! It was so cool!

Brian felt the baby move for the first time last night during a thunderstorm!

Pregnancy Update (19 wks)

We had our ultrasound this morning and it looks like we're having a boy! We are having a 2nd ultrasound done by a specialist in the next couple weeks because our son is apparently a gymnast and managed to put himself in a position (feet over his head) that made it difficult for the technician to get a good look at everything they needed to see. We'll let you know if we find out anything different at that ultrasound, but the technician said she was 95% sure it's a boy!

A couple fun things we saw: #1, the baby looked like he was scratching his back (and for those of you who know Brian well, this is PROOF he is definitely his father's son!). #2, we got an ultrasound photo of him sticking his tongue out at us (already a little brat... proof he is definitely his mother's son, too)!

They also changed our due date back to Christmas Eve based on the baby's size (I knew it all along)!

Stats: He weighed about 11oz and his hearbeat was 159 beats per minute.
