Blizzard December 2006

We are safe and sound in Colorado's blizzard. There is about 30 inches of snow outside and it is truly a winter wonderland. We have been confined to our new townhouse for the past 2 days but that's okay because there's plenty of room for us, India, and anyone else who wants to come visit:) God has truly blessed us!
The Denver airport is closed through tomorrow afternoon so keep us in your prayers that we'll be able to make it home on Saturday.
Here are some pictures of our new place and the surrounding area covered in snow. There is also one of my belly at 26 weeks.
We Love You,
Linwood and Sara

More baby pics

They wouldn't let us post them all at once, so here are the rest. Love you!

It's a Girl!

It's been almost a week since we found out that we are going to be blessed with a baby girl. After staring intently at the ultrasound picture and announcing that we weren't going to buy any dresses and anything pink, the baby's daddy is finally starting to come around. (Thank you to those of you who prayed:)) This weekend we decided that her name is India Bianca and we did add some dresses and pink things to our baby registry at Babys R Us. Linwood is still counting on that 1% chance that the doctor's are wrong. Thank God for 3 1/2 months to adjust.

The doctors say that India and her mom couldn't be healthier and that everything looks great. She is about 11 in. long and 1 1/2 pounds. We've included the last ultrasound pictures for everyone to see. They are all labeled except the one that shows we have a little girl.

We love you all and are so excited to see everyone at Christmas!
Proud parents to be,
Linwood and Sara

New Found Bliss

I have to say that the second trimester of pregnancy is wonderful! There is no more nausea. The sight, smell, and thought of food no longer send me running to the closest bathroom. Thankfully I now officially look like I am "with child" and not spending my evenings with a carton of ice cream and a pan of brownies. I now fit into maternity clothes so saftety pins and rubberbands are no longer part of my daily wardrobe. Most importantly those "psycho" moments have gotten fewer and further between. Linwood is not currently in danger of losing life or limb -- and I have to admit that although he frequently provoked me, it was seldom his fault.

Don't get me wrong there are still a few quirks -- heart burn, indigestion, the sometimes endless flow of tears that come out of nowhere. One kick in the stomach and I am again happy, smiling, and in pregnant lady bliss. So, all quirks is good right now:)

Love you,

Baby at 18 weeks

These are the ultrasound pictures from our last doctor's appointment on October 16, 2006. The top picture is of the baby's face, he or she is looking at us. On the middle picture he or she is sticking up his or her thumb and pinkie in the shaka sign:) The bottom picture is of him or her giving us the thumb's up and you can see his or her feet to the right.
We love you,
Linwood and Sara

More Belly Pics

We had our first snow in Denver last week! Of course we took advantage of the opportunity to go play. Above are also more recent pics of my growing belly. We are now 18 1/2 weeks. We had a doctor's appointment last week and we are all happy and healthy. The doctor gave us ultrasound pictures but I forgot to bring them to scan them in...they will be coming soon. He said we had a healthy, active baby. He was unable to tell if it was a boy or a girl. We go back for the big, detailed ultrasound the last week in November. Linwood is mentally preparing himself for the possibility that it might be a girl:)
We love you all!

Baby Daddies of The World

To all the dad's and dad's to be it is a wonderful experience to have a child growing with much excitement of a little life to come. It's wonderful simply because your mate bakes lots of home made desserts like cookies, cakes, brownies and of course cheesecakes all from scratch This is the most wonderful experience ever. We both are gaining weight and both are at a good cause.
Just in case your mate isn't baking you home made goodies you might need to join this baby dad's group.
Does your mate laugh and cry in the same sixty seconds? Do you get the blame for everything that goes wrong? Do you get hugs and dirty looks in the same five minutes? If any of these fit you please reply to help a baby's dad dot com.
Life is great!!!
God Bless You

Hello friends and family!
We created a blog so that everyone could stay up to date on what's happening with our baby. (Thank you for the idea Dawn) We are now 13 weeks pregnant. At our Dr. Appt. on Tuesday we heard the baby's heart beat (160 beats per minute). I gained 4 lbs. and everything seems to be going well.

Here is our first ultrasound when the baby was 8 weeks old.

We Love you and will post again soon.
