I haven't updated in a while. I planned to update right after Christmas, but after my mom ended up in the hospital, updating my blog was the last thing on my mind. Everything ended up fine, and my mom is home now and feeling much better, they were still a few scary days!

So Christmas was great, except for the fact that my mom wasn't feeling exactly herself. Braysen received so many gifts! I can already tell that the child will be spoiled, I can't believe how much he got for Christmas, and he's still not even here yet! I'm afraid to see what will happen next year!

Santa showed up at my parents' house this year, and here are just a few of the goodies that he left for Braysen:


  Santa also left him this Boppy Lounger. After Marlo raved about how much Emery loved hers, I decided that my little guy probably would need one, too! :) Grammie has already been shopping off the registry!

And yes, I realize that these do not look like "baby" clothes. That's why we love them! I love the fact that they are a miniature version of Tony's clothes.

My Aunt Stephanie (who has 3 adorably dressed boys of her own) picked out some really cute "boy" clothes for him also! Here are some of them:   

His first swimsuit! It is so tiny! Braysen will be ready for the river by next summer, even if mommy's body isn't! :)

Tony's parents even joined in on the fun:

Joey and Dena stopped by when we were in Havasu to leave these jammies that look like riding gear:

We get a glimpse of Braysen!

Today we went for our 3D/4D ultrasound. My aunts bought a package for me for my birthday where we get to go twice to have these ultrasounds done. Everybody wanted to come, so we had a room-full! It was really cool and we got some really great shots of baby Braysen in action.

Chunky boy already! He definitely hasn't been starving!

A little smile.

Little feet!

I know it's a lot of pictures of him, but they gave us 113, so there were SO MANY to choose from!

Our audience:
Aunt Jennifer, Ryan, & Aunt Stephanie

Aunt Stephanie & my mom

My grandma & Kylie

Tony's dad, checking out my belly.

The technician was cracking up at our crazy family.

Double digits!

So as of today, according to my ticker, I have 99 days left! Holy cow! Where has the time gone?! It seems like it was just last week that we were at the river for the 4th of July, and I wasn't drinking because I knew there was a chance that I could have been pregnant. It's a good thing I didn't drink, because as it turns out, I was three weeks pregnant. I knew the time was going to go fast, but I really had no idea!
