Room with a View

It's been a busy week in our little girls life. She's been moving around a lot and constantly kicking Sam. I can feel it all the time which is really cool. I've even tried talking to her which still feels weird but I know its a good idea so she's used to my voice too.

We've made a lot of progress with her little room too. She has a lovely little spot in the South wing of our townhouse overlooking a majestic view of...the rest of the townhouses. There's a pigeon outside of her window so hopefully that doesn't bug her too much.

Auntie Rachel stopped by this week with a present. Yes a little jean vest just like her Daddy. We'll have to get her some Fred Penner and Big Bird patches.

Little Miss Nutley!

Well, it's official...she's a GIRL!

Yes we finally found out. Originally we were planning on keeping it a secret but we soon realized how hard that was going to be. We first made the appropriate phone calls to our families and close friends before it was released to the world of Facebook. I'm not sure if Twitter has gotten wind of it yet but she's definitely a popular little girl so I'm sure it wont be long.

We went to a clinic called UC Baby ( where we got a 3D ultrasound. The two images below are from that. We have a disc of a lot more as well as a DVD that we need to look through. It was a great experience getting to watch the whole thing on a flat screen TV. Auntie Rachel and Auntie Daryl came in and got to watch too. Of course we all laughed when the technician said "No penis!".

Honu U'Uku

We're back!!

Had a great time in Maui. Lots of sun, good food and drinks. Spent lots of our time laying around relaxing. Took a day trip to Molokini to go snorkeling, I went surfing one day and we also fit in a luau.

Here's a link to the Facebook Album for anyone to take a look at the pictures.

Sam is doing great. We're up to week 21 now which is past the halfway point. It is now the length of a banana. Apparently the rapid growth stops and the changes in size will be much smaller than they were previously.

It is also Sam's birthday today so we're going out tonight to celebrate.

P.S. Honu U'Uku is the Hawaiian word for "Tiny Turtle" which we added as another nickname on our trip.
