Allie swam!!!

Hello!! So the last few days we have had some nice weather and its been a little warm so I took Allie to a park that had a few fishing ponds. I've been trying to get Allie to swim. Before she would walk in but wouldn't go where she couldn't touch. The time before this, I took her and she couldn't wait to get in the water. She wouldn't go where she couldn't touch but she did run right in. I knew it was a matter of time before she would start swimming. So today was another beautiful day and I took Allie back. Like before, she ran right in the water but seemed a little timid. I took a stick laying near me and threw it in. She went after it but hesitated to go in further. Finally she went in and swam to get the stick and she swam back!! I was so proud of her!! I even teared up a little!! I decided I wasn't going to let her rest so I kept throwing the stick in. She went in every single time!! She wasn't hesitating either. I was a little worried the first few times that she would go under so I kept her leash on so I could pull her out. After that I saw she was fine so I took it off and she loved it. Its funny to watch her swim back to shore. She whines the whole time!! Kinda like shes saying...."Holy crap this is hard work!!" Sooo funny!! So the first video is the first time she swam. The second video is a few more times later. You can see she was having so much fun!!!

Crazy Dog

Hello!! So last night I was watching a movie upstairs and paused it to brush my teeth and stuff. Allie followed me into the bathroom like she always does. I looked down at her once and noticed she was staring hard at something. I looked up and saw she was staring at the TV. When I pause a movie, the screen turns black and a logo pops up that moves around and changes color. Allie would not stop staring!! Then when I told her to watch it, she ran to the tv and started turning in circles and trying to catch the logo. I took a couple of pics and took a video. The video makes me laugh every time!! Hugs and kisses!!

More Baby Pics!!!

I had my first trimester testing done today. They asked me a ton of questions about family health and stuff. Then they gave me three options about testing. The first option was just get the ultrasound done. The second option was ultrasound and some blood work. The third option the above two and they would stick a needle into my stomach and get some fluid from my uterus. They told me with the third option that there is a 1 in 300 chance this test could cause a miscarriage. So I didn't go with that one. I chose the second option. So they just pricked my finger and got five drops of blood and then I went in for the ultrasound. During the ultrasound they measure the back of the neck. They told me that in cases where the baby has down syndrome, the back of the neck is really big. Our baby's neck looks good :) Normal size so they dont see any problems. I also got to hear the heart beat. It was so fast but normal :) That was really cool hearing that. They took a bunch of pics and then they tried to measure the neck. They had a heck of a time. First the baby was asleep then it woke up and I could see it moving around. It was sitting straight up at first and then it kinda moved to its stomach. Not good positions to get a measurement I guess. They tried everything. They tried moving me on my side, laying me really far back, and kinda jiggling my stomach to get the baby to move. Nope....baby was staying there :) At one point, the baby was moving so much it even looked like it was waving at us. Was sooo funny!! The tech got a pic of that too. Finally they got a good enough measurement. They told me I will probably be back for another ultrasound in about a month. We should know the sex then :) YEA!!!! I can't wait. Its killing me not knowing what it is. So thats all the news from that. Next week is my second doctor's appointment. Everythingis looking good and I am feeling pretty good. 12 weeks :) Enjoy the pics everyone!! Hugs and kisses!!

New furniture

Hello!! Last Sunday went out and bought myself a little treat with my tax money. I bought a coffee table and a new bed!! They are the rustic wood look and they smell amazing!! The store actually had some amazing sale prices so I didn't pay near as much I normally would have. Always nice. So here are the pics of the furniture. I also included a pic of Allie. In the picture she is staring at our fence. Couldn't figure out what she was starting at all the time so I looked from the second story. The neighbors have a big white dog and that's what Allie has been staring at!! She's in love!!! I started watching her more and saw that she and the white dog will run along the fence together and whine at each other. It is too cute!!! We are both doing good. 11 weeks :) Love to all :)
