3 wonderful years!

So, Wednesday was our 3 year anniversary! Except both of us pretty much forgot.  Ty gets the credit of remembering first.  He called me at home Wednesday morning and I wondered what the honor of a call so early in the day was for! When he said Happy Anniversary I felt pretty awful until he told me that he had forgotten too and was writing a letter that was dated September 23.  But then he couldn't remember if our wedding date was the 23rd or the 29th.  So he googled, he GOOGLED our wedding date! haha  So we both had a pretty good laugh about how pitiful we are.  It ended up being a wonderful anniversary and I am so blessed to have been married to Ty for 3 years!  Year 4 should definitely be exciting!

Just look at him.  How could I not know he was the one?

First ever Big Smiths ribs.  I don't think I ever got the ribs again after that. Shoutout to Giggles.

I couldn't put any wedding pictures b/c all the file sizes were too big and I am computer illiterate.
We had a wonderful honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas, thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Saunders and Tim and Linda!  They weren't there of course but they helped get us there!


San Diego

I've been introduced to the Seat family holidays!

Ty has been introduced to the Church family Christmases.  Yeah Kobes!

And the Saunders family Thanksgiving.

We've had many adventures at Camp Deer Run

And we will be having many adventures this next year, I'm sure!

As for the pregancy, I am 22 weeks as of yesterday!  Belly pictures to come tomorrow.

My preparation for kids

I have to say, Ty and I have the cutest nieces and nephews. They are so cute, they are probably what pushed me over the edge of being ready to have our own kids. For Labor Day, we were lucky enough to get to spend 5 days in Dallas with Ty's family (Thanks Tim and Linda!). It is always so much fun to see all the new things the triplets have learned since the last time we saw them. They are just so cute!

Ty and Marlee

Ty and Beau (I don't know where our picture of Lilly is!)

Enjoy the video of cute little Marlee, Beau, and Lilly (in order of appearance)

We are also so lucky to have Kristen, Adam, and sweet little Caden in Longview, FINALLY! It has been fun to get to see Caden a lot more often. Kristen needed to run somewhere the other day so she dropped Caden off for a bit. He is a busy busy boy and we had lots of fun!
The first thing he always wants to do is ride on the broken tractor in the backyard.

Next, we played some Lincoln Logs and he built a killer cabin.

After the Lincoln Logs, we were a little bit thirsty, so we got some wholesome Dr. Pepper.

After a quick, refreshing drink of Dr. Pepper, it was time to go outside again to climb some trees.
And then it was back to the tractor. He couldn't quite figure out how to put the key back in.

Of course when you go outside, it is important to take your shoes off when you come back inside.

We ended our afternoon with come great music from the mix master!

We are so blessed to have such sweet neices and nephews! It is definitely helping us prepare.

20 week checkup

We had our 20 week checkup with the Doctor Wednesday and then with the perinatologist yesterday. We are going to a specialist because we found out a few months ago that Ty and I are both carriers of cystic fibrosis. This means that any child we have has a 25% chance of having it. We are asking for prayers that this little boy will be healthy and CF free! We are trying our best to trust in God no matter what happens. Today we got a detailed ultrasound and the doctor said that everything looks good so far. They can sometimes tell from ultrasound if the baby has it, but they can't rule it out. So it was really good news to hear that so far everything looks great! The doctor said he thinks he will look like Ty. Don't know how I'd feel about being told I resemble a skeletor. But I do think it would be cute if he looked like Ty, which means he would probably look like a boy Lilly! And that would be fine with me.

Ok, it has taken me forever to figure out how to post this sonogram. The file was too big, so I had to record it on my camera in a smaller file size to post it on here. Surely there is a better way. Anyways, the video is about 5 minutes long and a lot of it is hard to tell what it is. But I just think it is so fascinating to see the little guy moving.

Baby Ford

If you haven't yet heard, Ty and I are going to be having a little boy in January! January 28 to be exact (except not so exact). Since I don't have a picture of him yet, we will just go with the monkey for now. I guess we do have a picture from the sonograms, but the monkey probably looks more like a little boy than the sonograms. For those of you who can decipher sonograms, here are our latest. This one is of his whole little 16 week body.

His sweet little profile. (Forgive me for the sloppy post. I'm still learning.)

Here is the shot that told us that little boy is a boy and definitely not shy!
I am about 19 weeks now and in the last week or so, the belly seems to be getting a little tighter and bigger. It is fun to look pregnant rather than like I have been eating a little too much lately!
We go for another checkup next week and will get our 20 week sonogram pictures and video!
