Past tense

Last night Bryan and I were reading a story with a lot of past tenses. He likes to pronounce ed like the name Ed when it is at the end of word. He does it when he is speaking too, not just reading. Jonathan and I have been trying to be better about correcting him when he speaks incorrectly. We kept thinking that he might learn by osmosis, but that hasn't worked.

So last night as we were eating dinner we were drilling him on words and their past tenses. Work...worked, wish...wished, look...looked, etc. Well then Jonathan asked him what the past tense of shoot was. He didn't quite get it so Jonathan explained, "You know like if you were out shooting and you were done, what would you say?" Bryan responded, "Yay I hit it right in the middle!" We couldn't stop laughing.

On another note, we are officially a real city now. We got a Target. We took a family outing to Target last night. Bryan and Jonathan had a blast looking at the toy department, it is way better than Wal-Mart. I bought a book for the baby and enjoyed looking at all of the school supplies. It was just a regular Target, but it was so exciting because it only took us 5 minutes to get there. They will be getting a lot of my business now, goodbye Wal-Mart!

I have a bump

So I have officially outgrown my first pair of pants. It is not cotton and has no stretch so I'm not surprised that I have outgrown them. All of my other pants fit me fine because my bump is very small. I'm not looking forward to the part where my back hurts, but I do want to "look" pregnant.

Bryan has become very protective of me since I am pregnant. He tells me that I shouldn't carry stuff and when I do he says that he will remind me when the baby is "messed up" that I carried whatever it was.

The other day I was making chocolate chip cookies and as most of you know, I love to eat the dough! Well because of the raw eggs, I am not supposed to. I was telling Bryan how much I wished I could eat some dough and he said, "Why don't you just call the doctor and tell him that you don't want to be pregnant anymore. Then you could throw up the baby and the he (the doctor) could put the baby in Jonathan's stomach!" LOL!

As most of you know Jonathan has been looking for another job for a while now. He had an interview in Georgetown at a helicopter place a couple of weeks ago and now they have called him back for a second interview. The interview will be next week, but he doesn't know exactly which day yet. They have to bring in all of the big wigs for the interview. They are opening another hanger and have three positions. Apparently there are 5 interviewees. Please keep us in your prayers. We are hopeful that he will get the job, but trying to remember that it might not be God's plan.

Happy Anniversary!

Jonathan and I got married in December, but since I will be as big as a house by then, we went to celebrate our anniversary this past weekend. We wanted to go to a bed and breakfast since we had never been to one. I found one in San Antonio that looked really nice so we made a reservation. We made our way down to Austin where we dropped Bryan off with Jonathan's parents (thanks Chris and Pam!) then we headed down to San Antonio.

We were going to out for a nice dinner, but the only thing that I could think about eating was tuna. I usually don't even really like tuna, but we made our way to Subway where we had a very romantic sandwich with some chips.

We slept in on Saturday morning. They brought coffee and breakfast to our door. The breakfast was beautiful, delicious and even included dessert. It is called the Inn at Craig's Place and I highly recommend this bed and breakfast if you are ever in the San Antonio area.

Then we headed down to the riverwalk. I go there every year for my music convention, but Jonathan had never really been on the riverwalk so we had to enjoy the sights. We ate, walked, saw a movie at the imax and then I took him to my favorite jazz club, The Landing. He loved it!

We had a great weekend and it was a good recharge for us. We have been running like crazy and hadn't gotten to talk a whole lot lately. It was nice to have no responsibilities and get to relax!

Baby Tome

I had my first doctor's appt. today. He did an ultrasound and I wanted to share it with all of you. The doctor said that everything looks very good. Jonathan and I finally feel like its real, there is a baby in my tummy. Jonathan didn't seem that excited when we were looking at the screen today, but as soon as the doctor left, he said, "Wow that was cool!" I guess he didn't want to look too excited. The baby is looking straight out on the picture. You can see his/her left arm very well and the right arm just a little bit. Baby Tome sure was squirmy while he was trying to take a picture. I can't believe it is already so active. I can't wait until I can finally feel the baby kick.

I go back on Aug. 28th to see if it is a boy or a girl. So I will keep you updated as soon as I know anything. I can't stop smiling!!

Explanation: I forgot to mention that we did hear the heartbeat and it was very strong. Its amazing how fast it beats!

The head is on the right and the baby is looking straight at us. The mouth is open and you can see the eyes above them. The belly is on the left. There are no legs visible, but the doctor assured me that it does have legs! I hope that helps

We are in a little dinner club with some friends of ours. Every Tuesday night we get together with them and we take turns cooking. So I know that I only have to cook every 3rd Tuesday. We were supposed to go to Steve's house last night for dinner, but I was having a little morning sickness in the evening. I decided that I didn't feel like going so Jonathan said he would fix me something to eat before he left. I was really craving some steamed veggies and grilled fish. We didn't have any fish to cook so he made me some grilled chicken and steamed carrots and broccoli. It was delicious. I was so impressed with his cooking skills. The chicken was juicy and seasoned perfectly. I was so proud that I had to take a picture of his cooking. It looks like a restaurant doesn't it?

Update, I can't find my camera cord so I won't be able to post a picture.

Good Weekend

We went to Dallas this weekend to visit my sister, Karen and her husband, Scott. We had a really good time. Friday night we got there late so we talked a little and then watched a movie on their big screen projector. It was a good movie, but I can't tell you what it was called because I feel asleep about 20 minutes into the movie. Jonathan was the only one who made it all the way through, I guess we are definitely old!

Saturday I wanted to sleep late, but my eating alarm wakes me up at 7 to eat every morning. I guess I should be glad that my baby is already on a schedule :). So I went downtown to the lab with Karen. She had to finish up some stuff that she hadn't gotten done the day before so I sat there like a little kid and asked her about everything that she was doing. She was very patient and explained everything, but I must admit I did not understand most of it. I did get that this one chemical kept things from bonding and man did it stink.

Then we went home and fixed lunch. Karen and I took a small nap and the boys headed out to Fry's (something they do every time they are together). Karen and I went to Babies R Us to look around because I hadn't gotten a chance to show her what we have picked out. It was fun!

Then we went to Chuck E Cheese for dinner. We had planned to take Bryan to Six Flags but we had to cancel because of the rain. Bryan shared his tokens with all of us and we all had fun playing the games. It was definitely a good weekend. I always wish that I lived closer to Karen and Scott.

So Cute!

Jonathan and Bryan REALLY needed a haircut. So we went to Wal-Mart last night after dinner to get their haircut. I've tried other places to get Bryan's haircut and they charge $13 and only cut off his side burns. I wouldn't get my haircut at Wal-Mart, but the boys don't mind.

So anyway we get their haircut and then come home. Bryan says, "I think someone needs a haircut!" We said, "Who?" He said, "My animals, can I borrow your 'real' scissors?" So I got my hair clipper set out and let him go to town. He only pretended with the clippers, but he must have been occupied for about an hour. He put his animals on the kitchen chair and wrapped a towel around them. He made good money too, $30 in tips! Maybe I should switch jobs.

I couldn't take a picture because he gets embarrased if he realizes other people know that he's pretending. You'll just have to imagine a picture.
