A House in Progress

Sam and Terri (my lovely in-laws) have been most helpful in keeping us up to date on the progression of our house. They sent us some pics of how the house has continued to change.

Here is the house after they first poured the foundation:

Here it is with the first floor done on September 15, 2006.

And here it is with much more of the house done on September 27, 2006. (Please note that is not our truck.) It looks like we might make the December 21st closing!!

Woo Hoo!!

I think that our house delay problem has been solved!! Our awesome builder got our delay date moved to an earlier time when I told him that I was worried about moving at 8 months pregnant.

New closing date: December 21 - Merry Christmas to us!

Gus is going to come out covered in chocolate.

I seem to be craving chocolate more than anything else. We might have to give Gus the middle name of "Hershey". :)

A countdown to Gus' arrival


The builder has delayed our house from our original closing date of Nov. 23 to Feb. 8. Let's hope Gus doesn't come early!

Belly pics at 13 weeks 4 days

Some of you have asked if I was showing yet or not, so I thought I would post a couple of belly pics. (Who knows how much of the belly is Gus related and how much is "bagel" weight? Meh - not a lot I can do about it now.)

Our first meeting with our OB and Gus' debut!

All is well in Gus-land according to our OB. He was really nice and asnswered all of our questions. We also had our ultrasound and have I mentioned that from now on Marc is going to have to drink 1.5L of water when I do as that is A LOT of pain to be in. ;)

Gus was very good measuring 54 mm and with a heart beat of 161-167 bpm. And then when Marc came in the room Gus started to bust a move and flipped all around. The little fists started pumping. It was so exciting to see Gus on the screen.

And now, for Gus's debut:

Marc's helpful diagram to help us figure out what was what (note that Gus' spine is curved in real life):

And this is who Marc thinks Gus looks like:

The artist casually known as "Gus"

Marc and I are expecting our first baby on ~ March 21st 2007. We are beyond excited!

We kept referring to the baby as "he" or "she" so we decided for the time being to call the baby "Gus". (Gramma once told us that this would be her fighter pilot name. :) )


We wanted to have a place to update you on all of the craziness of our lives so here goes...
Key players:
* Joanne (moi)
* Marc
* Gramma
* The baby currently nicknamed "Gus"

(A quick shout out to my mom who gave us this blog name.)
