Sorry guys, I know I totally disappeared for a bit there!  Our laptop finally bit the dust, so I only have internet at work… and after a few days off, it’s been busy trying to catch up.

So… that will explain if posting gets even more sketchy over the next couple of days.

However, I do have some big things to talk about.

  1. We’re having a baby!!!!!  Sweetpea (who is also frequently being called The Manatee) is officially 7 weeks, 4 days gestational age today.  We saw the fully blinky heartbeat on Monday.  I will be seen every two weeks from here on out, and I have a meeting with the maternal fetal medicine specialist on Halloween.
  2. Oklahoma was AMAZING!  I have no idea when I am going to manage to upload my pictures.  I tried doing it at work yesterday, but until I find a card reader I don’t think it’s going to work.  However, I had a wonderful time.  Brandi is so awesome, and meeting Matt and Claire was everything I thought it would be.  I was totally comfortable the whole time, it was like hanging out at home.  Claire is an absolute miracle too.
  3. Work is hosting a picnic at the zoo on Thursday!  Aaron and I get to spend the whole day playing!  Okay, he is coming to work with me in the morning, and then we will visit the awesome coffee shop, spend about an hour and a half working (me working, him reading), and then finally take the shuttle over to the zoo.  I am bringing the fancy camera, though I still don’t know if I will be able to upload…
