It's A.............

OK.....So I think most of you saw this on facebook already, but I thought I'd put it here too.
I just had another ultrasound - and we found out that we are having..........
I will admit that when the tech told me, I was a little bit sad. (I really want a little girl!) So, I left the ultrasound not feeling overly excited....happy that everything looked ok......but not jumping up and down excited. Later I was talking with my best friend Lianne - she was super excited for me and said "I can totally picture you with two little boys!" I don't know why something so simple made such a big difference - but it did. A soon as she said that I started thinking about how much fun it will be to have two little boys in our home. Aiden is so much fun, and I can only imagine what it will be like with two. So, I have warmed up to the idea! It's going to be great!

We went shopping last night to get a few things for Aiden. We talked ourselves into buying a few things that we normally wouldn't have, just because we now know that we can use them for two different boys. It will be nice that they can share clothes (because Aiden has TONS) and toys (which he also has TONS of). And hopefully the two of them will grow up being best buds!

Anyways, here is a picture of our little guy. There wasn't too many good shots from the ultrasound - but I really like how his little legs look. Very cute!

In other news, I have had quite the adventure with doctor stuff. Since I was 'fired' from my last office - I have been desperately trying to find a new doctor. I called every office in Airdrie - no one is taking patients. I went and got a list of doctors accepting new patients (it was the newest version - from August), called those numbers, they are all full now too. I finally called the maternity clinic at the Peter Lougheed - where you go if you can't find a doctor. They said I just needed a referral to go there. I went to my old doctor to see if they would give me one, they said not until I paid my fee. So I left there. Went to another place, but they couldn't give me one either. I started bawling and I felt really stupid, but they were super nice and gave me some numbers to call. Did that and still no one would see me.
Finally I phoned my mom! Mom's always have the answer! There is a doctor in her ward that agreed to send a referral for me, and she booked another ultrasound for me. So, I got in touch with the clinic at the Peter Lougheed - they are so busy that the earliest they could see me was in December sometime (I will be 26 weeks by the time it's December). I haven't had any check-ups, no one has listened to a heartbeat, nothing. Matt was pretty mad that I could be so far along in my pregnancy without really having any medical care at all. It does seem a bit crazy! But that was that.
Then today Matt's receptionist from work phoned. She is pregnant - having twins, very fun! And she heard from Matt about what's been going on. She was pretty upset about it and talked to her ob/gyn about me. And they agreed to take me!! So, I finally have a doctor again! I am so excited/relieved/happy/thankful/etc! This new doctor has already looked at my ultrasound stuff, she's very on the ball. She's sending me for one more ultrasound because they couldn't see the right ventricle - so I will go for that next week and make sure everything is ok. And then we will go from there I guess.

Now we just have to settle on a name.............hmmm............

Kids Say the Darndest Things

Me and Matt teach the Sunbeams class in our ward. It is a very interesting calling. We get to see some very funny things and hear a lot of interesting and funny things:
-We had a visitor in our class today - he told us that when he was a baby he fell out of the window of his new house. And when he was older he fell off of a tractor - that's why his head hurts sometimes.
-Today during our bathroom break I was informed by a girl in our class that she had very fancy panties - she got them at the store. She then proceeded to tell me all about them.
-at the same trip I was also told that if you want to wipe your bum, you need to fold your toilet paper. I guess it's a valid tip.
Kids are real funny!

Friends Off

Dear Aiden,

We were going to have a fun day today. I took you to the library, we went to see dad at work, and then we went to the mall to find you a new backpack like your cousin Max has. At lunch time you started freaking out in the food court because I needed you back in the stroller. You are very hard to get in the stroller when you are flailing and screaming....but I was successful. You wouldn't stop screaming - everyone was staring at us - I decided to take you home. We went outside and you screamed even harder.....we got all kinds of good looks. You agreed to be good if we went inside again to get some food, and you were. Then we went to play with the trains. We played with them for a LONG time, and then it was time to go home. You did NOT want to do that!! You were freaking out so bad that I couldn't get you back in the stroller, so I had to carry you - and push the stroller - all the way through the mall and out to the car. You aren't a little boy wasn't that fun or easy. And you screamed and bawled the ENTIRE way. I wanted to scream and bawl back at are probably lucky that I didn't. (But I do wonder what our audience would have thought about that. hmmmmm)
Now you are in your bed screaming and bawling..........I'm going to leave you there for quite a bit longer. You need a nap and I need a break. Hopefully both of those things happen and then we can be friends again.

your mom
