So the last two weeks have been fun and exhausting all at the same time. Our house has been full of family...my mom came the week after Ty was born and was an amazing help cooking, cleaning, and just helping out. Then my sister and my dad came down for the weekend. The week after that most of Ace's family came down. It was a lot of fun to have family around, but this week has been nice to get into some sort of routine again.

So far, nothing too exciting has happened except for the fact that this baby is going to be quite large. I have been measuring big for a while and my Dr. is really wanting me to have a C-section. I went to get an ultrasound yesterday and the ultrasound said the baby was 8 lbs 9 oz (Easton was 7.3). I am going to try for a natural delivery but we will see what happens. I am scheduled to be induced on Saturday if I haven't gone before then.
The ultrasound lady was a lot of fun and even took some pictures in 3D for us...It doesn't look the best because I scanned it in, but you can see his little face pretty good. I think his cheeks are the majority of all that weight!

If anyone knows Ace you know how long it takes for him to purchase something big. I have wanted a Honda Odyssey forever...well at least for the last year. First, I had to convince him that even though a mini van wasn't the best looking vehicle on the streets, nothing can compare to its automatic doors, the deep trunk, and the many other conveniences of them (which I can argue about at any given time). We have been to every dealership in the city of Las Vegas and online, researching prices on the different kinds of mini vans (we looked at ALL of them) all the while I already knew I wanted a Honda Odyssey. So when New Years Day came around and Ace started talking about going around to dealerships I just thought it would be another day seeing how low they would go on a price and then going home and budgeting it...like always. But instead, they offered the lowest price we had ever heard since we started looking (which was a long time if you don't remember from my story) and Ace shook the salesman's hand and I almost fell out of my chair! I still can't believe it actually happened! Hooray!
So, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth...just off the internet. I don't have internet at my house right now so the only time I can blog is when Ace brings his laptop home from work at night. Which, as you can see, doesn't happen very often!
We had a fun Christmas this year, although we couldn't go anywhere due to my "condition" Grandma Leelee flew down and spent Christmas with us! We had a lot of fun and Easton sure enjoyed being spoiled non-stop by Leelee!
