Crystal did pretty good herself...SOOOO CLOSE! Sherri made the dunking booth guy fall in....but for some reason I didn't get a picture!
We forgot to take pictures while we were there...so we took some in the parking lot. They aren't that great but they are memories and thats all that matters!
Steph & I
The following Day we had the Turkey Shoot, this is Joseph's second time to attend with Travis. I figured I better go this year b/c next year I don't think the baby will like the sound of gun shots! Joseph did really good he won 2 Turkey, 2 Hams, 1 Bacon...he kinda got jyped on that though b/c they ran out of bacon so he had to substitute 2 bacon's for 1 ham! But hey we have meat & they have money for a good cause! I was just there for moral support!
Kaysie & Richard
Steph won 2 meats & only shot 2 rounds...shes a pro!
Trav took home a ton of stuff!!
Later that night when we got home we made hamburgers & carved pumpkins! I made an Owl, Joseph made a Ware Wolf, Steph made something that reminds me of the Cat In The Hat, and Travis made an awesome Haunted House! We did this last year, we are making it an annual thing!
Mine, The Babys, & Josephs
Last but definitely not least, yesterday (Monday) we had a doctors appointment. Thankfully Joseph was able to go w/ me b/c this was the first time we got to hear the heart beat! It was really neat, it took her a little bit to find it & after she already told me not to get nervous if it took a while...I started to of course! I recorded it on my phone but it wouldn't upload :(.
We had a great appointment. Last appointment I lost 2 pounds & this one I gained 2! The heart beat was 165 (171 last time) so it's pretty consistent. I and everyone but Joseph & my Dad think its a girl...we shall see! I am 12 weeks as of tomorrow, so first trimester down! In 6 weeks I will get the anatomy scan & we will know if it's a boy or girl! We are so excited this has been a great experience!

Yesterday I had my second appointment, wow has my baby gotten big! It's actually looking more like a baby, you can see a head, body, and the start of limbs. I was shocked to see the difference in just 2 weeks.
If you look closely the head is on the left...and then you can see the highlighted areas that are the limbs. I went in thinking i was 8 weeks and 1 Day & the baby measured 8 weeks and 2 days...so that was good. The doctor said since it measured so accurate that's very reassuring. The heart rate last time was 130 and this time is 177, everyone says its a girl b/c the heart rate is so fast. I guess we shall see!! I really wished that Joseph could have made this appointment b/c the first time all you could see was a dot & this time you could see it moving its little numbs, so awesome. I lost 2 pounds so i was excited about that...even though I'm sure my jeans disagree and swear i gained lol! I now get my appointments spaced out to every 4 weeks, so my next appointment is October the 25, maybe we will get to see my little one again! By that time i will be 12 weeks! :)
I stole this from a friends blog b/c i thought it was pretty cute:(all as of yesterday)
How far along? 8 weeks and 2 Days
Total weight gain: -2
Maternity clothes? Nope not yet, but I'm about to have to start using the pony tail trick!
Sleep: Joseph actually commented on how i must be sleeping good b/c the bed is still nice and neat when i get up in the mornings. I get up 2 times so Bayleigh & I can go potty.
Best moment this week: Definitely seeing the baby move!
Movement: I don't feel anything...but it sure is moving!
Gender: People are claiming girl b/c of the heart rate 177. I have always had a gut feeling it will be a girl!
Labor Signs: Oh Geez NO!
Belly Button in or out? In!!
What I miss: Caffeinated SWEET TEA! Decaffeinated is ok but there is a difference.
Weekly Wisdom: Dr. Tran said once we see the baby move you are pretty much in the clear...so I have some relief.
Milestones: Definitely seeing my little one move around!
