This weekend I will be 20 weeks. That is officially the halfway point! Seems like way too long to go though. Hopefully once the holidays hit, it will all move faster. I feel movement all day everyday and it is wonderful. I didn't feel so much so early with Dylan, so this is fantastic. I enjoy every minute of it. When I get up in the middle of the night to pee, I must wake the little on up, because once I lay down again, I can feel him or her flip flopping around. Still counting down to 15th. I can't wait to see him or her!
Not much else happening. The Durango is out of service for the time being. The check engine light came on the other day. Ryan took it in to have it looked at and we need a new computer for the transmission. We will take it in on Monday. Until then we can't drive it because they told us that the transmission could fail at anytime. Ugh. Luckily it is still under warranty, so we won't have to pay that bill.
No plans for the weekend. I'm so glad that it wont be hot outside either!
Sometime in the next 2 or 3 weeks, I will have to get a plan together for Dylan's 3rd birthday party. This year we are scaling it back to only close family. Every other time, we invited everyone just about on Ryan's side and its getting to be a little too much. So from now on, we will go smaller. I just have to get a date set really. But that is not easy with every ones schedule.

Nice weekend! Saturday we didn't do anything. The weather was so nice this weekend. It was cool enough for me to be comfortable. I had bought a bunch of meat that was on sale at Kroger. Slabs of pork ribs and a couple of big pork loins. Today Ryan cooked a couple of slabs of ribs in the big smoker along with a pork loin. So good!!! Smoked meat is just awesome. This was the first time cooking ribs in the smoker, so that was a learning experience. Hopefully next time we will get them a little more tender. Still tasted great. A couple of people came over to enjoy the meal with us. It was a nice evening.
Not much in store for this week. No plans for anything. I am ready for a good nights sleep!

I had another baby appointment today. Once they found the baby, his or her heartbeat was strong. It was about 156. It was a very short appointment, but they said everything looks good. My next checkup will be on September 15 which will be the ultrasound. So hopefully the little one isn't stubborn and we can find out the gender. We could have had the ultrasound sooner, but it just made sense to wait until the next appointment anyway, that way he or she is developed well and the doctor can see everything they want to see, and we can see what we want to see. So until then no big news on the baby front. But all is well!

Well I said that I have been feeling the baby move for a little bit now. Last night I was able to put my hand on my stomach and feel the movement from the outside! This is so much earlier than what is was with Dylan. Feeling the baby move is just the best part of pregnancy. I am so thrilled to feel all of this already. My next appointment is on Monday. Nothing too exciting I'm sure, just the usual heartbeat, blood pressure, "how do you feel" type of things.
We haven't been up to a whole lot. The heat has been horrible on me. Mainly the high humidity. The air is just so heavy most days. Today was actually a decent day, but it isn't going to last they say. Back to the humidity tomorrow. Monday Ryan and I are going to Hollywood Casino for a short getaway. I'm looking forward to it. A short break will be good for me. Its not Vegas, but I guess it will have to do for now, haha! We will go back to Vegas at some point though!

Not much.
Monday we finally put the sand in Dylan's sandbox. He played in there for a long time. That was the last thing to do on the play set. I haven't been feeling too bad most of the week. Still not much of an appetite. Now its going to get hot outside which will make me downright miserable.
Last night Ryan and I went to a Reds game with some friends. They ended up with 2 extra tickets. Luckily Ryan didn't have to work so we were able to go. It was fun. The Reds actually won too! A night out without Dylan was kind of a refresher for me in the middle of the week.
I realized the other day that I haven't taken any pictures lately at all! Ive been slacking on that. So I am charging the batteries tonight and hope to get a few in the next few days. Its probably been a couple of months since I have taken a picture of Dylan and that is just awful!
Occasionally I can feel the baby move now. Ryan thinks I am nuts, but I know that is what I am feeling. I can't wait until Ryan and Dylan can feel the little one move.
No plans for the weekend.

We had a nice weekend. My grandparents offered to take Dylan for the whole weekend! So of course, I couldn't turn that one down. They said that he did well. I am sure that he enjoyed himself a lot. They picked him up on Friday and brought him back on Sunday. I didn't get much done on Friday, but Ryan and I did get to go to a late dinner, which was just so nice. Saturday turned out to be a busy day. I did get a few things done around the house that needed to be done. I feel like a got a lot accomplished that day! Saturday I actually felt well too! Sunday morning Ryan and I went out to breakfast. I don't remember the last time we went to breakfast anywhere!
This morning we are back to normal. I didn't feel great yesterday for some reason. This morning didn't start off well either. I hope the rest of the day goes better. Dylan was ready for school this morning. When I dropped him off he didn't give me a second look! He was gone. At least he enjoys going. We have quite a few things going on this week in the evenings. Should be a good week.
