Well as soon as I was reaching down for her, Joy said, "Gracie! She's got a baby in her belly... she doesn't need lots of kiddies hanging off of her!" ... and then Joy went back to doing her business....
Well then I noticed Gracie was staring at my belly, looking at me like, "Say whaaaat?!" Then all of a sudden she started quizzically patting my belly, like, "... is there really a baby in there?" And then sure enough she lifted up my shirt to have a look. Joy and I started laughing and then Joy explained that the belly was inside the belly....
She then told Gracie that the baby could hear her if she wanted to say hey, or Merry Christmas to him... So she got really quiet and then whispered, "Hey bebe... Merry Christmas!" ... and then she gave him a kiss... She's going to be such a great big cousin to baby boy.

Here are just a select few from the evening of fun (PS-This weekend helped me realize just how ready I am for a big ol' Cam glass of vino :) -- but no worries, it is all worth it!):
Oh and forgot to mention... our lemon of a vehicle -- the volvo -- had some issues on the way there... (and back for that matter). But good thing I'm married to the smartest man alive! Jimbo fixed it both ways. Of course Carrie, Caro and I had to document... everything! :)

Well this morning I left the house around 7:00 a.m. for a Chamber event downtown. As I'm in the event I feel my phone buzzing in my pocket. I pull it out - I have 3 missed calls, and it is only 8:00 a.m., something must be going on! Then I noticed Jimmers had texted me... "Send me a message when you get this."
So I rush home to check on the little stinker... and guess who greets me at the door? Tail wagging, toy in mouth? Sadie. She was fine. Noth-ing was wrong. I let her outside, she ran around. She did circles around me. Gave me lots of kisses... Oh what a stinker.
Something's telling me she is starting to figure out why my belly is getting bigger... SOMEONE isn't going to be the "baby" of the house any more! :) Oh little Sadie... we love you!

Thanks to co-worker Janet Koss for making this baby happy! :)
Doesn't this look to die for:

2 -- Regular pantyhose do not fly when you are over 4 months preggo. Although the belly isn't big -- the hose will still roll. Enough said.
3 -- What it feels like to have a baby seriously move! Just a minute ago baby boy moved big time. It kind of felt like I was on a roller coaster and my stomach dropped a little. If I had to sum it up in a word it would be.. "WOOSH." So cool :)

Everyone says, "Oh my hair was the best ever when I was pregnant....", "My skin was radiant....", etc...
Blah. Blah. Blaaaaaah.
My hair looks bad (but partially my fault - I'm extremely behind a cut/color, which will be fixed later today)... My skin is not glowing, but breaking out.. I feel like I'm in high school all over again without Proactive (yeah, did you know you can't use Proactive while pregnant?). ..... and to make matters even better -- I had my first nose bleed yesterday. Ew.
I know it is all worth it, but come on glow!

On Wednesday when we had our doctor's appointment, we got three ultrasound pictures. When we were leaving Jimmy asked if he could have one. I asked him what he wanted it for. He responded by saying, "I want to put it up in my cube!" (Like, duh -- what else?!) Well Jimmy showed off his son at work and pinned it up in his office.
The next morning we were getting ready for work and Jimmy asked where the other two pictures were. I told him and then asked why?... He then asked if he could take another one with him to work to show. I just started laughing and said okay as long as he brings it home :).
Well, guess who just came by my office to get all three pictures? Jimbo. Such a proud papa! :)
So yesterday I'm pretty sure I felt the baby for the first time. Since we got to "fall back" one hour Saturday night we had extra time before church to veg out and just watch tv Sunday morning. So I was very still for awhile, just laying on the couch watching TV. Then Jimmy told me I really needed to get in the shower so we wouldn't be late. So I jumped up and ran upstairs and started the water. Well as soon as I did I felt a constant little flutter on my right side about four or five times in a row.
Jimmy told me to describe it, and it might sound strange but it kind of felt like my stomach was yawning...? Strange, huh? It also felt like constant butterflies/bubbles but just on one side, four or five times in a row and then it stopped. I haven't felt it since, but it was so exciting!

I think I squirted a couple tears and said, "REALLY?!?!?!"
Then she said, "Well.. you aren't even 16 weeks yet... let's see if we can find the hear beat fairly easily. If so, we'll go back there and see what we see." Sure enough she stuck the little heart beat finder on my belly and we immediately had a heartbeat. She then smiled and said, "Let's go back there!"
So Jimmy and I were like little kids on Christmas morning. We both kept looking at each other like, ".. here we go!" Then the tech simply asked us if we wanted to know the sex and we both pipped up and said, "YES!" :)
As she was scanning the belly she asked if we had any feelings. I told her how I originally thought it was a boy the day we found out (but I really think I thought it was a boy because I always figured I would have a boy first)... but then I had changed my mind with all those silly tests... The Chinese Birth Chart, the pencil test, etc... So I told her we both thought it was a girl...
Then she started laughing and said, "well you're both wrong -- we have a baby boy!" Our little bambino had his legs spread eagle with it all hanging out. (Apparently he isn't going to be very shy :)
Jimmy and I were both shocked, thrilled, excited, astonished, etc... It was such an amazing time that we won't ever forget.
We can't wait to meet you Baby Boy Larson!!! :) You are already very much loved.

Jimmy sported a black eye, some P's on his shirt... Get it? Black-eyed P's?? wahh, waaaahhhh... We figured the wig and suspenders just made it more Halloweeny. Then I decided to rock one of Joy's maternity dresses with some crazy red heels, big ol' jewelry, big hair and a fur coat... What else? I also celebrated the evening with a little Welch's sparking grape juice, which was yummy!
We also rocked out all night with a little boom box we brought with a CD I made with nothing but Blackeyed Peas and Fergie songs...
We weren't annoying... No, not at all :)
But it was a lot of fun! Here are a couple more pics from the evening (thanks Carrie!):
