Princess is 1 and Pea is... well, who knows anymore?

I thought today would be sadder than it was....

Instead I was just overwhelmed with thanks for my princess and turned around and gave all the glory to God for the little life she's lead so far. When I say I couldn't be more thankful, I'm not kidding! I love her more than life itself.... but I'm sure none of you know anything about that. ;)

But let me tell you about our trip to look for a birthday present. The princess's latest fascination is baby dolls, so I decided to go to the store and look for a newer and nice baby for her birthday. Apparently being one means that she is old enough to actually realize that she is in an aisle... full of toys... that are meant for her. She screamed, and she pitched a fit, and she pointed at things begging for them. Woah, woah, woah..... when did you turn into a TODDLER, missy?? Needless to say we looked over the selection of what seemed to be about 80% dolls of African American descent and left..... because I've finally reached the point where my child is the one having a temper tantrum in the toy aisle. ::sigh::

Anywho, I had another appointment today to see if all the complications from last time had resolved. I've had no further spotting and the ultrasound showed that blood had resolved... it also showed my precious pea squirming around in there!!

Isn't he/she CUTE?! haha The tech felt it necessary to explain to me that was just the cord and not a boy part.... yeah, lady, I think I coulda figured that out. Anywho, the babe had a whopping heartbeat of 179!!! Adleigh's stayed in the 140's so this was new to me. If the old wive's tale is true, then it's another girl.... but heart rate has been proven to have no relation to what the baby's sex is so we'll see in another 8-12 weeks! Did I mention they also got a different measurement today?! ....only by a day meaning the pea measured at 9 weeks 1 day and giving me a due date of November 16th, but the doc told me to always keep the due date of the original ultrasound so the 17th it is! :) My wonderful doctor also finally gave me a prescription for phenergan which might be the best drug ever invented! I just wish I could take it more, but I'm a little weary of making pea drowsy too! Well, we're off to have a birthday dinner of mac & cheese! yum!
