New pictures up

Hey - I got some cute pictures of Abigail in the snow yesterday - they're posted on my Picasa account. Just go to www.therhoadsonline.com to view them!

No news on the job front yet. I will post as soon as I have some exciting news.

10 Weeks Today

Today, I am 10 weeks along! Mike and I have already started discussing names, how we'll decorate the nursery, and who will be in the delivery room. I am really looking forward to feeling the baby move, although I am probably a month away from that.

I also have my appointment with the OB on Tuesday, so if there's anything to tell, I will post an update then, too.

Abby Update

I can't believe that Abby will be two years old in only three months. Tonight, she has figured out how to open interior doors by turning the door knob - this is a horrible event, because now she can escape out the front door, or hide herself in any room/closet we have in the house! I prayed this day would never come.

Also, her vocabulary has grown at an asounding rate. She uses phrases instead of words, including things like "just a minute", "I don't know", and "Daddy's working". I don't know if I can count the words anymore - her newest ones would probably be sorry, dancing, singing, and Big Bird.

There is almost no limit to her physical abilities right now. She can climb, run and even tumble on the living room floor. She tries so hard to get herself dressed, but hasn't quite figured out which holes go where.

Abby got a LOT of Christmas presents - and her favorites are two movies - Follow That Bird (a Sesame Street production from 1985) and Abby (Cadabby) in Wonderland. She wants to watch them over and over again. Sadly, Mike and I already know them by heart.

I will try to get some new pictures of Abigail this weekend - after I cut her hair again - and then get some posted. In the meantime, I just posted the pictures from New Year's Eve on my Picasa page - you can find it by visiting www.therhoadsonline.com.

Ultrasound Update

On January 2nd, Mike and I went for an ultrasound for Umbert (for those who don't know, that's our nickname for the baby until we have a real name). Everything looked great - we even got to hear the heartbeat (163 beats per minute, I think...). Dr. Webb (who is the greatest) told us that the size and proportion of everything seemed healthy, and that the chance of miscarriage is pretty low at this point. My next ultrasound is scheduled for Friday, March 13th at 11:00 a.m.
