I am Thankful for ... (2010 Recap)

As the years go on, there seems less and less to be thankful for.  Things have steadily seemed to worsen since 2009 began nearly two years ago.  But that doesn't mean there's nothing to be thankful for this year ... there's plenty!  =D  It's times like these that really make you focus on the important things in your life.

** my wonderful husband, Jaimie **

** my incredibly smart almost-2 year old son, Jaiden **

** my super strong baby, Jack-Jack **

** my dog, Luna ... as much of a pain in the butt that she can be **

** my parents **

** snow **

** wonderful friends who have not thought twice when we've needed help **

** Disney Pixar ... for making great movies that entertain Jaiden AND me! **

** Baby Talk **

** my local library **

** coffee with peppermint mocha creamer on a cold day **

After months of not posting, what's the first thing I do? Post about this awesome giveaway on!! =D It's for a Newborn Posing Guide for photographers! Awesome!!

Our Little Upi

Well, we're on the ride again! =D

In December we found out we're going to have another baby! I had an ultrasound and doctor's appointment a couple days ago and we got to see our little 'alien'. =D S/he had a strong heartbeat and waved to us! The ultrasound tech put me at about 10 weeks and my due date is August 10th, two days after Jaimie's birthday! Maybe he'll get an early present! Let's hope Upi doesn't come late like someone else I know (psst, Jaiden! lol).

So here's our little alien squiggling around in Hanger 18. =D
Our next appointment is on February 11th! By then I'll be in the second trimester (and hopefully feeling better ... morning sickness is kickin' my butt!). We're super excited and can't wait to see our little Upi again!

A Year Ago Today ...

...I was in a delivery room pushing out my beautiful (pumpkinhead!) baby boy!!

I was so amazed that this beautiful little creature was *my* son. I'd always imagined myself as a mother, but it was so surreal (and sometimes still is).

Now my little baby is getting so much bigger! He's one year old today!! *sniffle* I don't know where the time went. But Jaimie's always telling me, "Don't blink." And, boy, was he right!

I am amazed and in awe of this little guy every day. He is my pride and joy and I look forward to watching him continue to grow into a wonderful little boy, teenager, and man. I love my Baby Ohz! <3

For all the birthday pictures, check out Jaiden's blog!
