Outfits for Adalynn and 20 week pic!

Please ignore how tired I look in this pic- keep in mind this is Sat. night after Kevin hurt his knee on Thursday.
Kevin's mom just returned from England and went on a buying spree while she was there! Here are just a few of the outfits she bought our little Adalynn. She only let us bring some of them home so that she'll have more for surprises later! :)
T-shirts from England for Adalynn- "I love being a Daddy's girl" and "I'm yummy just like my mummy". Both are long sleeved, but I folded the mummy one in to get them both in one pic.

I love the gray polka dots!! The layers on the dress are scalloped- as well as the bottom of the waistline. Love, love, love it!

This is Kevin's favorite! It is so sweet! I just love the colors!
Thanks, Mia!

Kevin and his knee

Thursday night Kevin was playing church league volleyball and he landed wrong on his leg....he was in excruciating pain immediately. We iced it down and came home and got him on the couch- thanks to lots of help from all the people who helped get him off the court, into the car, and Micheal Erfman who followed us home and helped get him inside. I gave him 800 mg of Motrin and more ice and put it up on the couch.

Friday morning I called Southern Orthopaedic Surgeons and got him an appt with Dr. Tucker Mattox that afternoon @ 1:30- I was supposed to work that day, but I called in considering I had a crippled husband :(. At the appt Dr. Mattox said that after looking @ the x-ray, Kevin has torn his LCL (on the outside of the knee) and possibly his ACL. He feels fairly certain he has torn his ACL. We scheduled an MRI for next Friday and will meet with Dr. Mattox again the following Wednesday. Hopefully we will get to move all of that up if we get the precertification from BCBS faster than expected. If so, we will know more sooner.

Kevin is in a knee brace and using crutches to get around. Needless to say, he is in excruiciating pain most of the time...the swelling on his knee has gone down a little bit so, we are hoping he'll start to have some relief soon. More posts to come later on the progress and prognosis!

Kevin and his bum knee- he's so happy!

Kevin and the Governor

Kevin had to deliver a vehicle to the governor a few weeks ago and he got some pics! Exciting stuff! It was the first time Kevin got to meet the governor. He wore his suit and tie and hopefully made a good impression :) The governor does have Kevin's business card should he ever need it! Enjoy the pics!

18 week pic!

Here is the latest pic of my pregnant belly! Enjoy!

Kevin saw it!

Last night, when we were laying in bed, Kevin and I watched my stomach for a little while. The baby was kicking like crazy and I just knew Kevin would be able to see it! He finally saw it! Yay! The baby kicked and he said, "Was that it?!!?" I said, "yes!" He was so excited! I'm so glad that he finally saw it, I know it's frustrating for him for me to be able to feel all of these movements, and he still feels like he's on the outside looking in!

We are both so excited about seeing our baby on the ultrasound Monday!! Can't wait to go register and start getting ready! :)

Pics and videos coming soon!

More movements!

Last night I was laying in bed reading, and I was concentrating on feeling the baby move @ the same time. I had my hand on my belly and all of the sudden I felt the baby kick me on the inside, and then I felt it on my hand! I said, "Kevin, Kevin! Wake up! I felt the baby kick my hand!!" He said, "Oh, cool!" (keep in mind I woke him up, it was late and he does have to work the next day, I however do not)

I then decided that I would uncover my belly and watch it for a while to see if I could see the baby kick me....I did!! It was so exciting! I had to bite my lip to keep from laughing out loud.

I felt the baby kick me on my right side of my belly and at the same time, my belly went out about 1/2 an inch and then went back in! It was so cool! Now if only the baby would cooperate so that Kevin could feel it! :)

Did you know babies can cry in the womb?

I read a blog, Confessions of a Young Married Couple, and this was on her blog a few weeks ago. I thought it was sad at the time, but the other night I really thought about it. Kevin and I are peacefully driving our car down the road, I am talking to him and not looking at where he is going (yes, he is driving) when suddenly he slams on the brakes. Scared. me. to. death. I said, "What happened?!?" He said, that car just pulled out and I thought he was coming over into our lane. After I breathe for a second, I say, "That really scared me, probably scared the baby too!" He said, "Awww...I am imagining our baby in their jumping and shaking from being scared...." and I thought of this. I wonder if our baby cried the other night :(


The other day I told Kevin that our baby is 7 inches long now and he holds up his thumb and pinky finger stretched out like a surfer sign and says, "Surfs up man!" I said, "or woman." He said " I meant man as in reference to the human race. Surfs up man, ridin' the tummy waves." Just thought I'd share a little of my corny husband with you. I cracked up :)

Feeling flutters!

I think that I have felt the baby move! Such a feeling! It's so hard to know exactly what I'm feeling for, but I have felt little flutters in my lower stomach...totally different than anything I've felt before! I really didn't expect to feel the baby this early, but it makes me smile every time I feel it. I have to be sitting really still to feel it @ this point, and I feel it more at night than anything! I can't wait until Kevin can feel the baby move with me! March 23rd is fast approaching! Can't wait to see our little one on the big screen again! More pics and a video to come! ~ Alecia

SnOw DaY!!!

Today it snowed at our house and it was so pretty! Kevin and Hershey enjoyed playing outside in the snow....I enjoyed staying inside and watching from the WARM house! (I am not a fan of cold weather!) Enjoy!

Isn't she pretty?!?

Preparing to catch (and eat) a snowball....

Got it!

Looking up @ Kevin while being snowed on! What's going on Dad?

Running in the snow :)
