I know I'm terrible at this...

You know Gene told me when I started this that he didn't think I would do very well at keeping it updated and here I am proving him right which I dislike doing very much :)

So here's a recap of the last few months. So the last posting was about the H1N1 vaccine and whether or not I should get it. After much research and prayer we decided to go ahead and get it for me. It's been 5 weeks and no reaction, still praying there are no side effects for the baby. We also decided to vaccinate Dylan. All of his cousins have had the flu already and he hadn't gotten it yet so I just decided to go ahead and get it just to keep him healthy. It's been a week for him and no reaction.

Ok now on to the fun stuff. My dad turned 50 in September and some of my family from Florida came up to celebrate. This was so much fun for my dad and I'm glad we could make it such a wonderful day for him. Here are a few pictures from the weekend they were all here.

Papaw and his boys. Besides the grand kids there's my cousin Logan (on the arm of the chair) and my cousin's baby Gavin (dad is holding him)

I just love getting pictures of this kid he has such a sweet, innocent face.

What can I say, he's proud of his body

The family the night before they all headed home, a few are missing for a softball game.

We brought this over for my cousin's baby to use and Dylan just loved climbing in it. It's going to be fun when the next baby comes, he'll have all new toys to experience.

In October we had our 8 week appointment, which included an ultrasound. We took Dylan, which was fun and hectic at the same time. He enjoyed looking at the screen during the ultrasound but when we went in to meet with the nurse and just go over things he became very bored and destructive. The baby looked great on the ultrasound and everything is going great. My due date is May 24th, which is great because I will get the whole summer off of work. Gene's sister and brother-in-law came up for a visit and we go to throw her her first baby shower. And guess what?!?!?!? She's having a girl, I got to buy stuff for baby girl shower for the first time. Sorry Holly I didn't even get to come to yours. It was so much fun at the shower seeing her be so excited. And she looks beautiful. We get to go visit them in December and I can't wait. And I can't wait to meet my baby niece in March!!!! For Halloween we debated on whether to buy a costume or use a hand me down. We decided hand me down which was good because he didn't stay in his costume for long. But I must say he was the cutest little chicken I have ever seen.

See you can't help but say "aww how cute!!!"

At mamaw G's

With his cousins. As this clan grows up, I fear for the town of Lebanon. There has already been another boy added, and what if I have another boy too. Ahh!!!!

Trick or Treating. He would seriously clean people's candy bowl out if they didn't take it away from him. He just kept reaching in and grabbing more. It also took us over an hour to walk around one block.

That brings us to November and what an exciting month already. Brandon and Gretchen's long awaited bundle of joy arrived on November 3rd, about 3 1/2 weeks early. Josiah Lee Williamson. He weighed in at 6 lbs 10 ounces and was 19 inches long. He is beautiful. He did have a bit of a rough start but with a week stay in the NICU he is now home doing wonderful. I haven't gotten a lot of pictures of him mostly because I haven't been able to visit him very much. With his scary arrival and being so early I am trying to keep Dylan away awhile, mostly because he is very touchy and kissy with babies and I don't want him to pass any germs. Hopefully we will be able to go visit this week sometime.
I also had my 12 week appointment and got to listen to the heart beat. The baby is doing wonderful and the pregnancy is going great. Besides a few extra aches and pains, and a little extra sleepiness everything is going great. I was looking at a Chinese calender that is supposed to be able to predict what gender you are having. It's based on the mother's age and the month the baby was conceived and the chart was right for Dylan. This time it said that we are having a girl. Based on it's way of predicting it has to be right, right??? No but seriously I will be extremely happy with whichever we have. Dylan could have a sports buddy or I could have a dress up partner, it's a win win situation really.

Wow that was a long one. Well you can look at it this way, if I only update every few months you will have a very long post to read and be able to kill some time, hopefully you are at work killing time. My next post will probably be about Thanksgiving and our trip to Florida so it will be a few weeks. Thanks for reading!!!
