Fun day at the park

Since I didn't have to work yesterday, Pete and I decided to take the dogs to the park one last time before it gets cold. They love going but when we get there, they pretty much stay to themselves. Paw Paw will socialize with the other dogs for a bit but not Daisy. Anything that goes near her she hides behind Pete's leg or she'll give a small growl that says back off! Lol. But she still had a great time. She just likes to watch the other dogs run around and play. I swear she thinks that she's human... or maybe she's too good for the other dogs? My little diva dog. Here are some of my favorite photos from yesterday. I wanted to take them down to the beach but we didn't have much time since I had to be home in time for my 6pm class.

IT'S A BOY!






So this morning I had a doctor's appointment to look at the baby's anatomy. The nurse asked if I'd like to know. Of course I did! Mom met me there this morning. She was so happy and excited as I was... We couldn't stop smiling and then they told us that it was a boy and mom and I hugged and kissed! It was a great moment. The look on my mom's face as she saw her very first grand-baby was one that i'll never forget. Oh and the baby was sucking his thumb at one point! I wish I had a picture of it. And before we left, I let mom cut a picture from the sonogram to take home with her. And after I stopped at McDonalds for breakfast, I called momom and left her a message and texted my friends as well! So now I know that we will have a Edward Zane Martel late February. The doctor did say that my placenta was a little thin at the bottom but not to worry because it happens in 5% of pregnant women and only 1% turn out to have early labor... So to be sure, I go back in 3 months for another sonogram to check to see if the Placenta filled out to where it needs to be. Mom didn't seem worried about it so I'm not going to worry about that just yet... Right now I'm going to enjoy the moment!

31st birthday

So yesterday was my 31st birthday! When I got home from work, hubby was waiting for me with dinner. He knew that I've been wanting a crab cake for weeks now and thats what was waiting for me :) Along with cold slaw (my favorite) and some carrots and broccoli (my veggies) for the day per Pete :) Also he bought me a cute quilted purse. And last, my mouth hit the floor... he hasn't gotten me a card in years... he's not big on them and he made sure that I knew that he made the extra effort this year. So it was a nice birthday.

Tonight, we are meeting Vicki for dinner. It's been awhile since we've seen her and it will be nice! Were meeting at 5 at one of my favorite restaurants called "Lemongrass" located in Annapolis.

Well thats it for now. Hopefully I'll get some scrapping done later because tomorrow I'm going to a friends to pretend to watch the football game... it will be nice to actually get out of the house. These past few months, i've felt like a hermit...

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
