Ok, I just have to mention something. Today I go to Walmart, and decide to find a long sleeve shirt. Obviously it needs to be a maternity shirt. I find the one rack they have and its all short sleeve. I ask the lady at the fitting room if that's all they have. She tells me that's all they have because walmart thinks that maternity clothes are becoming a thing of the past! What?! She says they stopped carrying maternity pants and shirts will be next to stop. She said they think that women are just wearing normal clothes instead of maternity! I'm sorry but MOST women, cant wear normal clothes throughout their pregnancy. Certainly not pants. That is just ridiculous of a large store like that to stop carrying maternity! Honestly I am beginning to think that walmart isn't the only store either. Its just ridiculous.

Gloomy, rainy, blah. That's been the last few days here. I have been trying my best to get things done around the house. Basically trying to de-clutter the whole downstairs. So far it's not going all that well. Dylan has been my main roadblock. As soon as I get something done, the booger goes behind me and un-does it. I got the fridge cleaned out. That was getting bad. Lets just leave it at that. I want to get the soon to be bedroom cleaned out as well, but man that is not easy. There is a lot of stuff in that room. My hope is to move Dylan into the room where our computer is now and put the new little boy into Dylan's old room. Dylan will get a little bigger of a room that way.
We also want to get Dylan moved over to a regular bed. That could be interesting. I don't want to move the crib. Dylan is old enough anyway to be in a normal bed. The challenge will just be getting him to stay in bed once we put him there! Once we get a doorway built for the room we can get moving on all of this.
Basically we need progress in this house, and that is not happening. I am getting antsy with it all too. I want to get things moving.
It's killing me not to go buy the few things I need for this new baby. I want baby stuff! But there is no point in buying it so early, so I am doing my best to hold off. Its not easy though! Once Dylan is moved then I can get all of the clothes down and ready. Along with all the other infant things we stored away.

We finally made it to the zoo on Saturday! We went up to Columbus. It has been so long since I've been there. We made it through everything. I'm pretty sure we didn't miss anything. Dylan did very well. A couple of times he showed a bit of an attitude, but it never lasted long. When I got him up that morning I told him we were going to the zoo and told him what kind of animals lived at the zoo. After that he was ready to go. He seemed to focus a lot on the elephant for some reason. I don't remember what we saw first. We did get to see the elephant he was wanting to see.

Some of the animals were napping which did make it a little difficult for him to see, but it didn't seem to bother him much. The tiger was putting on a show for everyone. It kept pacing in front of the window.

Dylan was able to touch a snake.

The gorillas were out and showing themselves. It looked like one of them was meditating. The other was right up to the window showing off.

There was an orangutan that stayed close to the window. Taking pictures was a little difficult. The glares from the glass kept me from taking a lot of pictures. I kept the flash off in most cases. If I didn't then you wouldn't be able to see anything.

They had a lot of really beautiful birds through out the zoo.

This animal seemed odd to us. We had never heard of an okapi before. It looked like the animal had the head of a giraffe, and the legs of a zebra.

Once we saw the okapi, it kind of dawned on us that there were no giraffes or zebras!! I thought every zoo had zebras and giraffes. Guess not. They must be going for more unknown animals now.

We ate at a food court inside the zoo. Luckily they had stuff that I knew was ok for Dylan to eat. He ate well that's for sure. We got to the zoo at around 10 and left around 2 after we had seen everything. It was getting very busy by the time we were heading out. The aquarium part was a little disappointing. It was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. Dylan didn't get to touch any animals in the aquarium either because the touch pool was closed for a break. I think they scheduled themselves an hour break and the aquarium was one of the last things we saw, so we weren't going to stick around for an extra hour.

Overall it was a good day. We all enjoyed ourselves. But my feet were a little swollen after all the walking. I kind of expected that though. Dylan finally fell asleep when we were about 15 minutes from home. I was hoping he would fall asleep shortly after we left the parking lot. You could tell he was exhausted. But he fought sleep just about the whole way home.

We had our ultrasound on tuesday. We are having a boy! They say from what they can see that he is growing well. We were told that he appears to be in the 60th percentile for growth which is good. He was moving around a lot during the ultrasound so it didn't take long for the tech to get the measurements she needed. It was nice to finally see the little booger. Now we can start to work on names. Hopefully it won't be too difficult to decide. The more we mention that he is getting a baby brother, the more he starts to listen. I don't think that he completely gets it all, but I don't expect him too. But he gets that there is a baby in mommy's belly. Obviously he has no idea what a brother is though.

Other than that there hasn't been much happening. Kind of uneventful. Not sure what he have going on this weekend yet.

Anyway, below are some pictures of from the ultrasound.

legs and boy stuff

face and midsection

There were a few more pictures but mainly of the same stuff. There is no denying the boy in this one though!

It's been a little while since I have posted. Not much going on. Tuesday is the big day for the ultrasound. This week has just been dragging on and on! I have been feeling pretty good lately. Aside from the headaches things aren't going too bad. We haven't been up to a whole lot really. We just had our 5 year anniversary! We didnt do much, just went out to dinner. But dinner went well.
I dont have much to say really. I am just so excited to get that ultrasound on Tuesday! Then I think it will finally feel like I am getting somewhere with this pregnancy. I am almost 22 weeks along and it seems to be dragging! Anyway I hope the baby cooperates so we can see the gender!
