Our home all decorated

We finally got the house done, well, as done as it's gonna get! I'm just so tired with this pregnancy that 90% of my projects are on the back burner until I start having more energy! lol So....enjoy...sorry the slide show goes so quickly I'm not sure how to slow it down.

We finally have a due date of March,09,2010! So baby Morris is on it's way. It was such an awesome moment holding Matt's hand when he saw his 1st baby for the 1st time. Seeing that little heart flutter never gets old, but seeing Matt's face was to die for! So our little...SHRIMP. Well...come looks rather SHRIMP-esq at this point..haha

The Dr. would like to keep a close eye on both the baby. The heart rate was lower than they would like so we get to see our baby on ultrasound quiet for the positive!

Yay, the Dr said it's fine!

After our blood work this morning we had to spend hours waiting to hear the results and finally not an hour ago the Dr called to let us know that yes, we are defiantly pregnant and he foresees no problems at all! We went from a 96 on my hormone level to a whopping 1,100, so's good! He did say that this is why my nausea has been so awesome.. ahh the fun begins. lol. We are to go back again this Friday for more blood work to make sure we are far enough along to try for an ultrasound on Monday or Tuesday of next week to see our little dot on the monitor to get a real approximate due date. Man.........what a relief!!! We are all thrilled!

~!!!Happy Independance Day!!!~

Before we get started you have to enjoy this video of Matthew's AMAZING Bowling dance! Oh yes! You are no match for his Kung Fu! If you are wondering what he's saying he said "chickens jackin my style, copy my swagggggggggg" LMAO...ya thats my kid!

Yesterday was the 4th and as a family we decided to try and brave the afternoon heat and go to Freedom Fest here on post. We had to park at the hospital and be bused in. Pretty much as soon as we got off the bus and his the grounds we were all DIEING and I was literally counting down how long we needed to stay to make it worth while before I could beg to go back to my A.C.! My sweet husband and I forgot to take cash..durrr, as if the vendors would have a debit card machine, so he walked about half a mile and back to the Shoppette and get cash to have on hand while the kids and I hid under the tents to have shade. It was LITERALLY 107 outside and that's without the heat index so we didn't stay very long. Even with lemonades, shaved ice and water Myself and the kids were all beet red in the face and I was really light headed and shaking, so we caved and headed back for the buses after 2 and a half hours or so. We missed seeing Clint Black in concert and being there up close for the fire works. We came home and cooled off, ordered pizza and then after dark went out again to the front yard this time (arms reach from the and lit sparklers from Nana and Grandaddy, and watched the fire works from the yard.

Also I have AWESOME parenting skills and had to take pictures of the kids climbing the light post and then yelled at them telling them to NEVER EVER do it again.. HAHAHA! I had to add it because Michael said ..."Hey Mom, Look, it's a KID-KABOB!!" hahaha!
And last but not least yet another video of Matthew, singing Boom Boom Pow, them chickens jackin my style they try to copy my swagga, im on that next now, and Happy 4th of July instead of YO lol what a little turd, but he's MY

Late Father's Day Surprise.....we're PrEgNaNt??!?!?

Why yes....We are! And Yes I am even more surprised than you are! lol. Evidently...I am now literally REPEALING all forms of birth control, including IUD's. Which I supposedly still had up until evidently...lately! HAHA!

I've been feeling rather...scatter brained and moody, far more than normal, and my puppy fever as you can see is now a BLARING signal for BABY fever...But still this didn't dawn on me. I was still having a cycle and didn't even THINK about checking. On Tuesday when my cycle was a whopping 4 hours late I dug around under the sink and found a REALLY old pregnancy test from YEARS ago! It was unpacked with all my other random nonsense when the movers brought our things last weekend. So for fun I peed on the magic, la,la, off around the house to do so on and so forth forgetting about said test until later. Walk back into the bathroom passing the test, look down and think...."nu uh!" I immediately called a GF.

me: " faint does the second line have to be to be positive??!??!?!"
Carol: "HAHAHA, hunny if you can see the line at're pregnant! Congratulations!!"
Me: "'ll call you later after I talk to Matt..haahaa"

So then begins the frantic search under the sink for a second test I am SURE is there from way back when... since this old as dust test CAN NOT be right! AH HAA! Now to find more pee.....<-------downs half a gallon of water and cleans house hoping to pee.......PEE........Test......HOLY!!!!! WHATT!!!!!! Photobucket

So sit and breath for a moment and think...Well I have to come up with a cute and clever way to tell Matt, seeing as this will be his 1st biological child. We ran to Lowes, bought him a tool set, and came home. I wrapped the tests and wrote "happy late Father's day" on it and put it in the tool case. Since we are down to one car I had to go pick him up from work, all the way home the kids were bursting to tell him "the secret" (which all they knew was I bought him a tool kit) so they blabbed as I knew they would and I said "I have another surprise in it, it's something you've REALLY REALLY REALLY always wanted"....Matt says .." Can I use it?" "Oh yes...for YEARS" lol ...then he starts begging to know. He knows I am a huge sucker and when it comes to good surprises I CAN NOT keep them. I KEPT IT!(the video is so bad because I originally recorded it with my cell phone, it was too big to send to my email so I used my camera to record my cell phones video...sorry...)
As you can see.....
He was REALLY excited. Afterwards we did the...."but how" WE also didn't quiet believe the tests and went and bought a few more...YUP. I'd say 7 positives clenches it! We are pregnant! lol
The next day I went in and got a blood test to confirm it, and by Thursday morning at 6:45 am I was woken up by a phone call from the OB clinic on base, the Dr. wanted me in ASAP that morning to find out A) if my IUD was still in there some where...and B) talk about my AWESOME health history. While at the Dr.s we had an ultrasound to look for the missing IUD and the tech couldn't see it. That wasn't the ONLY thing she didn't see. She couldn't see the baby at all. 45 mins of fishing around my nether bits and nothing! So the dr gave us a grim little talk. We had 3 possibilities for why there was no baby seen. A) the pregnancy is Ectopic (tubal) and would have to be dealt with surgically. B) we had already miscarried and were still popping positive or C) We were so newly pregnant that the fetus is too small to be seen at all. We went for another blood test to confirm my hormone levels. 50 or below means miscarriage, 2000 or higher and ectopic. In between and we have to wait and be tested next Tuesday to find out if my hormone levels are rising or falling. Rising means obviously we are still carrying a baby and falling means we have or are miscarrying a baby. So we had a few really tense hours Thursday where my hormone levels got the best of me and we cried for a while. The dr's office did call ruling out Ectopic pregnancy thankfully! So we went from a 1/3 chance to now a 50/50% chance. We will know Tuesday or Wednesday of this coming week.. so cross your fingers and keep us in your prayers. We really need it. Love you all!!!

Farsar's day??

I'm a little late posting's been a busy week and frankly I've been a total scatter brain! We had a fun Father's day, the kids helped make breakfast in bed for Matt...well, breakfast on an air mattress, with Styrofoam plate! So classy! One of Matt's Father's day gifts was a new puppy . Puppy fever took over! Her name is Sasha, and she's a wiemeriener! She's 12 weeks old and ADORABLE!!! She and Cupcake wear each other out! We have two very high energy breed dogs and BOTH are exhausted by the lunch because they have each other to bounce off the walls with! Then later that afternoon we BBQ'd some AWESOME pork Chops! We still didn't have any furniture so we were really limited on what we could do at home other than watching tv together and playing with It was a great day celebrating and GREAT FATHER! I love you so much Matt, you are really a wonderful man to the kids and I! We love you!!!!!!!
