Shower Thoughts...

So, on my last post I mentioned that we were getting ready for a little adventure... Well, let me give you the full story...

My cute sister in law Amy mentioned that her and Tyson wanted to go on a vacation, but she didn't want to leave her baby boys. I told her that they HAVE to go and that her boys will never remember that they left them and that her and Tyson deserve it. So, they started planning their trip to NY and asking me lots of questions cause I just got back from there a little bit ago and I started to get SO jealous that they were going on a trip!

Then, a few days later, I'm in the shower and I decided that me and Andrew should go on a trip too...
Where to?
Then I randomly thought WASHINGTON DC!
When would we be able to go? June? NO, we're going to Hawaii in June... July? NO, we're going to Jackson Hole in July... August? HECK NO- I will be WAY to pregnant to go then... Um, May? YES! I looked at my schedule and decided that if we didn't go around May 20 then we couldn't go until like next summer... So, YES! We are going to Washington DC THIS WEEK!

I am SO excited and even more excited that I cooked this idea up in the shower and that we are actually going through with it. I always get these really great ideas, but we never follow through with them because life gets in the way, but we are going for sure and are SO excited!!! Neither of us have ever been there and thought that it'd be a fun vacation cause there is SO much to do back there! Because there is so much to do back there I have planned out like every second so that we don't miss anything and we can see and do as much as possible!

So, that is where we will be the next little while- YaHoO!!!

Also, my Dr appointment last week was great! The baby was healthy and everything looked fabulous! The ultrasound tech said that the baby is measuring a little small and changed my due date to October 2. I almost cried I was SO HAPPY! The Dr won't officially change my date because Sept. 27 and Oct. 2 is within the same week so they aren't changing it, but I told them I am cause I wanted an October baby from the start. And, my B-day is Oct. 1, My little brother's B-day is Oct. 2, my parents Anniversary is Oct.3, and my uncle Val's B-day is October 4! How awesome would that be if baby was born on October 5!!! That would ROCK!!! And, his B-day would be 10-05-10- AwEsOmE!!! I am really into having a good "date" as a birthday... ;)

-Look how cute Baby is, he ALWAYS has his arms up by his face-


-This is so cute too cause he ALWAYS has his ankles crossed, just like Me! They said that his Femur bone is 1 inch!!! That just tells you hos tiny the rest of him is!-


We got some other really good 3D pictures, but they only printed them out for me and didn't put them on the CD so I need to go get them scanned onto my computer so I can post them cause there is one that the baby looks like he has his thumb in his mouth! And another where he has his hand behind his head like he's just relaxing in there! SO ADORABLE!!!

Everything is going great! The Dr said that the real reason that my back is hurting so bad is cause I have never weighed this much in my life and cause all the weight is in my stomach and really pulling on my back... So, like everyone has told me, it will only get worse! Fabulous...

Well, wish us luck on our grand adventure and don't worry, there will be PLENTY of pictures to share when we get home!

Love Ya!

wait, wait, wait... you guys are going to Hawaii and Jackson Hole and you were still feeling sorry for yourself?? Oh Ali, could you get any more spoiled...hahah just kidding. It really is a great time to get those last few vacations in before baby boy gets here. By the way, he is looking more adorable then ever these days. Hope you guys have a fabulous time and you'll have to tell me all about Ben's Chili Bowl!
