Can you believe it? Nine months already???? I am due in four weeks. FOUR WEEKS! Wow. We are going through a lot of different emotions. We are so excited to meet this little guy who keeps me awake all night with his dancing. I am also feeling a bit nervous......mostly about how big I'll (he'll) be by January first!! HA!!! Everything is going well. He's a healthy little guy and we know he'll be a great athlete by all the flips he can do already. Lets also hope he's a great sleeper. :) At our last appointment, the doctor talked about our birth plan and we saw a bit of the birthing ward of the hospital. It made it all real for me. Yup, this is really going to happen! Scary and oh so exciting !

On a sunny day......a month ago....we went for a walk in Sunnidale Park. Graeme and Margaret, that is the park we took you to on your first day here. The pictures are now a month old...but we seem to be always running behind with this blogging thing. :) We learned that a black shirt may not be the best thing for showing of my "bump"! Oh well. We'll know better for our next round. This week we had an ultra sound and ob appointment. Our little guy is now six pounds and doing well. He's upside down and ready to go! I still have a few weeks to go before my due date, but boy oh boy he's moving, dancing, kicking, and growing growing growing. If he's six pounds now....how big will he be in four weeks? :D

Well we seem to be a fair bit behind in this blogging thing. When school started, our world suddenly became quite full of work, work, work. Blah. But now things are looking up! I am off of work until Christmas of next year. It doesn't seem real to me yet. Anyhoooo back to the update. Our wee roo continues to grow and grow.....as do I...which I suppose makes sense. It is a bit concerning to watch my feet disappear, and I don't much like having to ask for help with lots of things (like putting on shoes, or carrying the laundry basket downstairs) but feeling the wee guy moving around in there is really cool. We can now watch him move from the outside. Looks a bit like a horror film where the alien springs out of it's host's belly. Our little man does not like the seat belt or any tight waistbands. He punches and punches them. He's got spirit already. I'm posting a few picks from when I was six months along. I am now seven and a half, and much larger than these pics. Will have to take some more and post them asap!

Well this year has certainly been a big year for us. We bought a house, are "up the duff", and now we have another thing to add to the year of big events. Watch the video to find out what! (You will only hear music, you won't hear us talking...your computer isn't broken :) )

A few weeks ago, I (Cindy) had to go for an ultra sound. As you ladies know, that involves drinking a whole pool of water, doing the pee pee dance for an hour while the ultra sound people are "running late" (aka chatting to each other and pretending you aren't there) and then eventually praying you don't wee your pants while the ultra sound lady rolls her magic ultra sound wand over your belly. My young ultra sound girl (I swear she was 12 years old) had a form from my doctor requesting certain pictures and measurements. A few minutes into the ultra sound the young technician started laughing and shaking her head. This continued for a while. I thought she would offer an explanation for laughing at my baby....was she/he wearing a clown outfit?......was she/he doing the moonwalk?....was she/he making faces? But no explanation was offered. So I eventually had to ask "What's going on in there?" and in response she turned the screen so I could see the ultra sound. What I saw was this cute wee baby...having a crazy dance party! There were jumps, flips, and wild dancing from one side to to the other. The young tech said it was nearly impossible for her to get the right pictures and measurements with that going on. My thought was how can I not feel that?
This week we visited my doctor for my monthly baby check up. When she tried to listen for the heart beat we heard a little beat beat beat...then static. My doctor moved the listening contraption over, and we again heard a beat beat beat then static. This happened a few times. Then my doctor called the baby "very active" and said it was hard to follow it around. She too had a smile and a chuckle. We smiled and chuckled too. However, the potential future was running through my mind. A very active kid, huh? This kid has to get bigger while we share my body. Oh no. I imagine I am going to get many kicks to the ribs. And later on? All I can picture is us chasing around this wild toddler as they giggle and wildly run and dance around the room getting into everything and crashing into furniture. Perhaps we should start padding all those dangerous pointy corners on tables etc. now!

Well, here we are! (That was for you Graeme) It has been two years since our last blog. TWO YEARS! We decided to take a little (ummm so it turned out a bit longer) break from blogging. Blogging is a wonderful way to keep in touch with important people (and complete strangers), and we really enjoy it, but it does take a lot of time and effort. However, we have decided to start blogging again....because....we have a big event occurring in our life, and we want our friends and family in Aus (or wherever you may be) to feel part of it. And the big event is....drumroll...I am "up the duff". For you non-aussies, that is an apparently not rude way of saying I am pregnant. Our little roo is due on January first. I am currently 16 weeks along and getting fluffier by the day.
