This past weekend was baby shower crazy. We had two surprise baby showers. One on friday night given by both the J.V. Boys and Girls soccer teams. It was such a surprise.

The other one was Saturday given by my girls here in Maryland Mary and Amy. Then over Thanksgiving the Degrots threw Angela and I a joint shower with the family. The chair that Matt and I are sitting in is our new rocker from his family. It is the most comfortable rocker ever. We are definitely truly blessed above and beyond.

This is me at 29 weeks for those of you who have been looking for a picture. Thanks to Mary's pushing (she actually brought the camera to the house) we got one to post. :-)

Matt coaches the J.V. Boys soccer team here at Chapelgate, and last night they won the championship 2-0. They played great, it was a good game. Way to go boys!

Happy Pumpkin Day

Our friends Dustan, Mary and their adorable little one year old, Reyce, came over after trick-or-treating. She had the cutest little red ridding hood costume. I thought Dustan should have dressed up like the big bad wolf but he didn't so much agree. Hope all had a Happy Pumpkin day!

We had our 20 week Dr.'s appointment yesterday and everything is looking good. We got to see the baby and hear the heart beat (140). These are a couple of the pictures from the ultrasound. Matt's favorite is the one of the profile of the face because you can see the baby's cute little nose. I like the one of the feet, because feet are very important if one is going to be soccer star.

The Wedding

We went to Megan's (my cousin) wedding a couple of weekends ago and had fun seeing all the fam. The wedding was very beautiful and so was my family. :-)
Who would have thought we all cleaned up so nice. We didn't even mean to coordinate color schemes.
For those of you who don't know the mystery man sitting extreamly close to my cute sister is her boyfriend Billy. We like him especially since he is so willing to take the blame for everything (it is always Billy's fault)
All the cousins, the family is definately growing up.

Getting bigger

Grandpa Black is pretty excited about the new little one. I hear he is even making plans to camping and hiking already (I wonder how small they make hiking boots?)

So here it is, this is me at the start of week 17. I am feeling good, still getting tired faster but I guess that comes with the territory.

I went to the Dr.'s yesterday, and everything is going good. I heard the heartbeat, it is weird to think there is another little heart in there. The Doctor said I am doing good, she said I gained 2 pounds since my last visit, I personally think there is something wrong with her scale because I feel like I have gained like 10! I will put a picture up soon, so you all can see what I mean. :-) Other than that Matt and I are both coaching soccer and staying busy.

Matt and I went to the doctor yesterday for our second visit and everything is going smoothly. We had another sonogram, the baby was real squirmy and kicking (soccer player already). We got the official due date which is Feb 25 (Jessica's B-Day is the 26th). The doctor said everything was looking normal, we saw the spine, brain, and even a little of the face (kind of looks like an alien). Our next appointment isn't untill the beginning of September.
