Week 8 and Everything's GREAT!

We had our first "official" visit to the baby doctor this week. No new ultrasound since there was no more bleeding since last week :-( I was kind of sad Chris missed the 1st ultrasound, but it was way more important we checked on baby last week.  Everything looks good. I have a new midwife than I had last time (as mine left the practice) but she's really nice and fits in well with our since of humor! The next 7 months of visits could prove to be interesting! LOL We go back January 5th to hear the heartbeat and then February 10th to find out the Million Dollar Question is it a Boy or Girl!!! Deette (my Midwife) said we could bring Anna-Grace we told her and she's SUPER excited. She really wants a baby brother and we keep trying to explain to her she may not get what she wants, something she's totally not used to, so we will wait and see how that goes.

As far as everything else goes, I finally got in the Christmas spirit last weekend and put the tree up, Chris put up the outside decorations on Monday so it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Williford household. Anna-Grace has her own special Princess Tree this year complete with Princess ornaments and pink bulbs! My Grandma Leen gave me an Angel Ornament (in the picture above to the left of Tiny our Elf on A Shelf) the Christmas before she passed away and it makes me sad every year when I put it on the tree. I have comfort in the fact that it's her way of watching over us at one of her favorite holidays....she would have spoiled Anna-Grace rotten and would have loved how excited she's going to be this year when she opens up her presents. She would be even more thrilled to know we had another one on the way.....times like this are when I miss her the most :-(

On a happier note, we had a bit of snow while we were putting up the tree, but it was too dark for pictures and when we woke up the sun had melted it all away. Anna-Grace and I were leaving the grocery store when it started and I was pushing her in a cart. A little old lady behind us remarked about how Anna-Grace's eyes were glowing and they were, she was so excited! This year Christmas is going to be the best one yet. I may be more excited than she is!

Introducing Baby #2

So we had a sneak peak at our litle peanut yesterday......I don't go to my official 1st visit until next Wednesday but I had some minor bleeding the night before last, so they just wanted to check things out. The doctor said everything looked good, the heartbeat was strong and everything was A OK! Which was great news.

We have had one sick little girl on our hands this week as Anna-Grace has strep throat and a sinus infection. We were starting to wonder if she was ever going to feel better. She woke p this morning and seems a bit better so hopefully we have reached a turning point. Poor Chris had to take care of me all weekend as I was just exhausted and then he spent all 3 of his days off caring for a sick 3 year old (who can be quite bossy when she's sick)!  Poor thing I think he may have been a bit relieved to go back to work today! LOL

In other news, Tiny reappeared when we arrived home from our Thanksgiving travels! He works wonders. I am thinking about asking Santa if he can spare that little Elf all year long! He however, is the ONLY Christmas decoration we have up. I had plans to do it over the weekend but did not have the energy.....I haven't even taken down our Halloween stuff (whoops) Oh well, here's to getting it done this weekend!

Anna-Grace sings Princess Songs

Our Little Girl is quite the performer! She was upstairs in her room last week singing away for over an hour, I was suprised when I snuck up there to secretly videotape her that she turned right around and performed for me!
