My growing tummy... 9 weeks...

Here's my gigantic belly at nine weeks pregnant! I'm due November 26th! I can't wait to find out what I'm having!

Bump on the Noggin

Here's Christian with his first bump on the head:

Here's how he got it.....

Some random cute pictures....

Enjoying the gorgeous spring weather!

Here is Christian outside the first day it was sunny and warm enough to go out and play! He just loved crawling around on the sidewalk, BUT he was not a huge fan of the grass.... :)

And, a few nights later, Aaron and I decided to take a picnic dinner to the park! The first park we went to was so packed there was no where to park! We ended up going to our second choice.. but it was still a lot of fun!

Christian's first Easter

Trip to Michigan and Kentucky

Mid-March, Aaron, Christian and I flew to Michigan for a week, and drove down to Kentucky as well overnight. Christian was great.. he slept on all the flights... and nearly the whole drive! I, however, got very, very sick on the flights, as I was in the early stages of pregnancy.... I suspected it, and took a pregnancy test the day after we arrived, which was negative. However, after the miserable flights home, I decided to take another... and, yup.. Christian has a sibling on the way! Anyhow, here are some pictures from the trip!

Fought with the bed and the bed won....

Before our trip to Seattle, I found Christian like this in bed... I left him there long enough to get the camera to snap a few pictures.. so.. he was pretty mad by the time I got to him with the camera :)

Trip To Seattle

Well.. I'm a little bit late in posting all this..... BUT... Christian and I had a wonderful trip to visit his Grandpa Allen and his Aunts Christina and Catherine in Seattle back in February. We were able to spend one day at Alki beach, downtown Seattle, and at the Space Needle. We even had dinner there.. it was the most amazing dinner EVER! Below are a few of the hundreds of pictures we took... including pictures of the oh so amazing dinner! :)

My beautiful baby sisters:

Silly me with Christian's favorite toys... Don't I make a good Medusa though? Aaron calls me Medusa when I wake up in the morning b/c my hair is always so messed up.... so now he knows what Medusa really is! :)

Alki Beach:

Christian had to eat and drink everything I had for dinner... So here he is guzzling my water, AFTER eating bread dipped in hazelnut oil:

And here is the first course; pecan crusted artisan goat cheese with crusty bread, a basil arugula salad, and a blackberry syrup... it was sooooooo tasty that I took a few bites before I realized I should take a picture!

For the main course, I had a peppercorn crusted Kobe steak, roasted heirloom potatoes, veggies, with a red wine reduction, also amazing!

And for dessert, a sorbet trio: mango, blackberry, and raspberry, topped with fresh berries and mint:
