And in this corner...

... weighing in at 1 lb 12 oz (give or take 4 oz) we have baby Joshua!!! Yup that is what he was measuring yesterday at his ultrasound. The boxing intro is quite fitting because the whole time the tech was trying to take a picture of him he had his hands in front of his face as if he were a boxer.

We decided to have a 3D picture taken this time because he is starting to put on some baby fat and looks more like a baby than an alien!

I think I'm in LOVE...

...with a vacuum cleaner of all things!

Since we moved into our house we have had nothing but problems with our new vacuum cleaning. When the installed the carpeting they didn't properly pick up all of the fine threads that were left over, and us not knowing any better tried to clean them up with our vacuum. Turns out that they require a special machine to pick these fine threads up and it ruined our vacuum. Great. We have been making due with what we had for now, until we saw a commercial for the Dyson vacuum cleaners that are now available in Canada. Well Chris and I started drooling immediately, that is until we saw the price of these fabulous machines.

We are now deciding that it will be a good investment and we went in with the intention of getting the cheaper model but soon realized that the features on the upper models would definitely be useful with a baby on the way. We are just now trying to weight the benefits of the more expensive model against the added cost. How Exciting!!!

Not really an exciting post, but the night we went looking at them I dreamt of vacuum cleaners!

An Update

Well tomorrow we hit the 23 week mark, my how the time has gone by. For those of you who are closely keeping track, yes I am ahead of schedule because my due date has changed.

I met with my new OB last week and after reviewing my ultrasounds, she decided to change my due date to March 14, 2007. The appointment was great and we got to hear the heartbeat for the first time, what an amazing sound. I must also add that I love my new OB, she was wonderful and made me feel so at ease. I am now entering the stage of continuous testing, I go for by Gestation Diabetes Screen on Saturday as well a couple of other tests. I am not sure how I fun that will be as the GDS is a one hour test where I need to consume a beverage that I have heard described a concentrated McDonald's orange drink, but more bubbly.

I have also included a picture of my ever expanding belly, I felt quite large, but this really made me feel huge.
