Christmas 2010!

Rocco enjoyed his first Christmas! He thought all presents were his though :)

Checking out the new toys in his stocking...

And checking out his new doggie bed and rawhide bone.
Posing so nicely with his presents :)
He couldn't quite figure out how to carry this big bone around.
Helping daddy open his presents.
Looking very cute with a bow on his head!

And look who decided he liked the bed too. Big surprise.

15 Weeks

We have made it to 15 weeks. I can still fit into my normal pants, but they just aren't comfortable anymore :) The baby bump is not this big all the time yet. This photo was taken at the very end of the day, after a very large dinner, so it appears larger than it actually is. At the beginning of the day, it's barely there, but I'm never ready to go in the morning for Kevin to take a picture. My goal is to take a photo once a week. We will see if I can keep this up...

Excited Doesn't Begin to Describe it...

We LOVE Pirates of the Caribbean. All three movies. LOVE THEM. We went to see Harry Potter a few weeks ago, and as we were walking through the theater I saw a movie poster that looked to me like it was from Pirates of the Caribbean. I looked closer and there was no description or movie name, only the date of May 2011. We had always assumed that there would be another Pirates movie simply based on the way the third movie ended, but we had not heard anything about it. Well sure enough... the fourth Pirates movie is coming out soon! It looks awesome! I'm thinking this will be the perfect date night event for "the last date night before Baby Hall makes his or her appearance"!

When I tried to embed the video, the size was not right, and I got frustrated. SO, click here to see the official trailer. It's a must see!

Baby Hall

I am sure that most everyone knows by now, but we are expecting our first baby in June 2011! We are 13 weeks pregnant and our estimated due date at this point is June 20. Even though a lot of people suspected, we managed to only tell our parents and siblings until this week when we left the first trimester. It was a very long time to keep it in!

Everyone has been asking, so here is the scoop:
I have felt GREAT the whole time. I have had absolutely no morning sickness which has been a blessing. I have noticed that I've been more tired, but that's about it. I am no showing yet, but I'm sure that will change soon :) I haven't really had any cravings, except for hot sauce and breakfast foods. But not breakfast for breakfast - only for dinner. We are also not planning to find out the gender of the baby and prefer to be surprised! (At least that is the plan for now... it could change!)

One of probably eight tests that I took. I didn't believe the ones with the lines, but there is no denying the one with the words!
We had our first ultrasound at 8 weeks. The baby still looks a bit "alien like" but was very healthy. We won't have another ultrasound until somewhere around 21 weeks or so.

Rocco Likes the Snow!

Today was the first day that we had substantial snow fall. We have maybe 4 inches so far, and there is no sign of it letting up anytime soon! Rocco has never experienced snow before, and he loves it! He runs around like crazy, and we discovered that he likes to eat the falling snow!
