Baby Steps
Keaton is walking up a storm. The other night, he walked from the coffee table to the couch where I was laying (which is about 6 “big people” steps! haha) As soon as he plops down, he hops right back up! It’s amazing to think it was only about two weeks ago that he took those first steps! He is definitely ready to be on the go. He tried to “run” the other day, but ended up in a tangled mess that Zach and I could only laugh about :)

Here are some pictures from today’s walking adventures.






OB Appointment #2

Went great!

We were only there for forever though! I met with the OB Coordinator and then had my bloodwork done…then we met with the OB Nurse and went over Family History (which didn’t take long since we JUST went over this…how many months ago!)

Then We had an office visit with Dr. Segal, who delivered Keaton. He is just beyond excited that we’re pregnant again! Besides the fact that he’s an awesome dr., he became my favorite after requesting an ultrasound at every appointment with him while I was pregnant with Keaton. So I figured today would hold the same :)

We went in the exam room and waited…and waited and then then nurse came in and said, “Dr. Segal said he wants to see you int he ‘new ultrasound room’. Follow me….”

So we did. Our office has a new 3D/4D ultrasound machine and of course Dr. Segal wanted to play :)

It was so awesome. Baby was sucking it’s thumb and WAY more active than Keaton was at this point (grrreat!) He put it in 3D, but at 12 weeks, that’s just scary!

We also got to listen to the heart just swooshing away and even got a print out of the “heart beat!”

We got about 5 pictures and that was that!

Zach pretty much missed half a day at work, since I haven’t heard from him…I’m assuming he still has a job! haha :)

BeBe (my mom) came down and watched Keaton for me. I’m so glad because he never would have lasted that long appointment! (I barely made it through!)

She had to run back to Roanoke after a quick 27 hour stay, but her help was GREATLY appreciated!

We go back Feb. 27 (or 24th….or something…) We go back in a month :)

**ZACH – scan the pictures!!! haha**

Mom vs. Baby…Mom-1, Baby-0
Saturday night after dinner, I put Keaton on the floor so I could clean up and as I went to take a step, Keaton crawled under me…and here was the end end result. Keaton cried for all of 5 seconds. I cried for all of 5 minutes, haha!

Here’s one of our Old Navy bargains…Boom Boom Brigade!
BOOM!
One of new favorite pictures :) pre-fight w/ mommy :)

Messy Lunch
This is from a few weeks back, but I found it the other day and had to share. On Wednesdays and Saturdays I let Keaton get a little extra messy at meals because it’s bath day :)

This day was a lost cause whether it was bath day or not! (luckily it was! haha)
He had a couple bites of yogurt left and was no longer interested in eating. In an attempt to get the yogurt in his mouth, a couple drops fell on his high chair tray…this was the (messy) end result.

Got it…

mom….mama…ma…ma…mom….ma ma….ma….ma…mom

Is what I’ve heard all day! haha!! I love it…and in case I forgot…I’m mom, haha :)

Whenever I whip out the camera to record it, he goes all shy and quiet…

We’re trying to eat lunch and he won’t stop jabbering , “mom…mama…mama…ma…ma…ma…ma…” to eat his oh-so-yummy chicken & noodles!!!

What a great day ;-)
