Well, I thought since I am now 6 months along I should catch you up on things since last time. We went in at 16 weeks and scheduled our first ultrasound. We went in at 20 weeks for the ultrasound and the umbilical cord was in the way, and the baby's feet were crossed. They also told me I needed to drink more water. We scheduled another ultrasound for 24 weeks and finally were able to tell that we are having a BOY! Jer is so excited! I am a little nervous, since I really have no idea what to expect with a boy. The doctors again told me I need to up my water intake or else...they will put me on bed rest. That is definitely not something I want to do. I have been drinking lots more water and I think I am ok. I had my gestational diabetes test, and failed. So I went in today to get my 3 hour one done. I am glad it is over, but I now have to wait for the results. I am getting more excited to have him come, but I am also glad I still have 3 more months to get ready. Kennedie knows where Mikah is, and everytime we ask her, she wants to lift up my shirts, stick her finger in my belly button, and then blow on my tummy. I don't think she quite understands what is going on yet.
Jeramie has now started to run in 5K's. He has enjoyed the 2 he has participated in and is already signed up for 2 or 3 more. I am not the best with taking pictures with our camera so I appologize for the bad photos. The first one we forgot the camera, so the pictures are from Jer's phone. That one was for the Washington County Fair. He ran it in 23 min. 28 sec.
The second one was for Swiss Days (Santa Clara). He ran that one in 23 min. 42 sec.
While we were up north this summer we went to Salt Lake. We rode the train (FrontRunner) down and spent the day. We stopped at Temple Square, went to the Gateway, and the Planetarium. It was a blast!
We also got to visit with Great-grandma and grandpa Tubbs while we were up north.
This summer we went to Bear Lake and had a blast. Kennedie loved playing with her cousins and spending time with her grandma and grandpa. We had a little birthday party for her since we went over her birthday. She loved the ice-cream! Grandma Suzie made her a blanket and Kennedie wanted to use it before it was even out of the pillow case holding it.
We went to Minnetonka Cave while we were there. Kennedie kept wanting to find a shark through the whole cave.
We went to the lake too. Kennedie loved looking for seashells. Then she would hide them in the sand castle we were building.
It was definitely a new experience tenting it with Kennedie, but she did enjoy it. We will see how next year goes with 2 kids and a tent. (Hopefully we won't be tenting it, but who knows.)
