Proud Papi!

Here is a pic of Jason trying on baby backpacks (or whatever they're called... the thing to carry the baby around) in a store while we were crib shopping.
Of course, our poor child will be over 7 feet in the air, and will be hitting his/her head on every doorway, but still... :)

16 Week Belly Pics

I believe the baby is having a growth spurt... I woke up one morning and looked like this:

Wed. Jan. 16:

And suddenly, Fri. Jan. 18:

Guess there is no hiding my belly anymore, huh?? :)

One more baby update for today...

I have my ultrasound scheduled for Feb. 4th, and hopefully, as long as the kid cooperates, we'll be able to find out what the gender is on that day. Have a guess? Take our poll, over on the right of the page. Happy guessing!

We have a heartbeat!

On Tuesday, January 8, we went for a routine doctor's appointment and got to hear the sparkler's heartbeat for the first time. It was amazing! 155 beats per minute, which according to the old wives tale, means it will be a girl... only time will tell! :)

And in case you wanted some details... I took a home pregnancy test, and (obviously) got a positive result, on 10/28/07. Jason had no idea I was even thinking I was pregnant, so imagine his surprise when I gave him the news!!

10/28/97 was Jason and my's first date.... who would have ever thought that 10 years later we'd be married and having our first baby? What can I say, we're blessed!

Have you heard?

I know its been a looooooong time since I've updated this blog in any way, but I am going to get much much better now, and for a good reason. We're having a baby! Yup, its true, soon there will be another member of la familia Jimenez.

I'll be posting pics and baby updates as we go along, so we can introduce our little "sparkler" to all of you! PS- The "sparkler" is due on the 4th of July. You know us, we don't do anything normal or average :)
