13 and 1/2 Months

That's right that's what the age difference will be. Chad and I are expecting number 2 in the middle of July. We went for our ultrasound yesterday and everything looks good. I also saw the doctor while I was there for a check-up. That was Chad's first time going to the doctor with me for this baby and he got a little scare while the nurse was taking my vitals. It seems that this baby never wants to have its heartbeat heard and so it is always moving around and so the nurse had a hard time finding the heartbeat. She stopped and said that she would get another nurse or Dr. Russell to come in and do it. I got up and looked at Chad and he was a little white and I told him that it was okay, this has happened everytime I have been here. I said that whoever comes in next to do it will find it in like 10 seconds. So here comes the nurse to get the heartbeat, I counted and 12 seconds later there it was. A hearty 160. Chad a think was a little relieved. We did find out what it is going to be, but I have been pinkie sworn to publicly display it and only if someone inquires about knowing can I let them know. You can read all the legalities on Chad's blog

In other news, we have booked our flight for May and will be spending just about 3 weeks at home. Well Maddie and I will, Chad will have to come back here for end of the year meetings for 4 days, then he will be joining us again for the last 2 weeks.

Baseball has been going good. This week it looks like they will get their tournament in. It has been sunny and about 80 here. Maddie and I even got a little color as we were out walking yeaterday.

Maddie is doing great, she is starting to stand by herself for longer times and when you pick her up and then put her down she wants to go right to a standing position instead of a sitting one. She is starting to babble more and more. She can mimick a lot of sounds we say and faces we make. She also likes to sing when there is music on, that is great at home when we are listening to cds, but it can be a little distracting when we are at church and she starts everytime the organ starts or when the choir starts. We love the Curious George CD that Aunt Jana got us. Everytime is come on she starts bopping up and down and waving her arms around.

We have visitors coming on one week. Grandma Heff is coming next Thursday and even gets the chance to go to Maddie's 9 month check up with us. Then the rest of the gang comes on Saturday. We are actually scratching Lake Conroe and going to Lake Travis which is right outside of Austin. I know that the northerners are looking forward to some warmer weather, I think Chad is just looking forward to come time off from school, and I am just looking forward to hanging out and relaxing.
