Gender Cake

So here I go and promise lots of pictures and blogging etc. and I haven't done anything in days :(

I was supposed to make a gender cake last week for some friends to announce if they were having a boy or girl (they didn't know yet either) and I was really excited ... then this baby decided to have some fun with me and I got to spend 4 days on the couch ... but we did get an ultrasound (pics to follow).  (Congrats to Stevie and Hillary!  It's a girl!)  So my wonderful mom made the amazing gender cake for me while watching my kiddos and taking care of me.  I am finishing the wedding cake this week, pictures to follow next week!

Here's some pics of  "little Harris" at 10weeks 6 days, healthy little baby!  We had some good "posing shots" as the US tech called them, but they didn't print correctly so we have these with the measurements on them.  We get another one in about 4 weeks, because they are worried about "an abnormality in the baby's neck."  As far as I am concerned ... it's teeny tiny, how could you possibly see the anatomy correctly now?  Oh well, at least I get another ultrasound! :)

I thought I'd do a new post to fill you in on the kids' newest accomplishments!

Benjamin is becoming quite the young man, he says the funniest things, and speaks as if he was 10.  Kathy was asking him his favorite thing from Hawaii and he told her it was the shower ... He really enjoyed the shower to rinse off the sand by the ocean.  They had a short one to wash your feet except it was the perfect size for him ... he would push it and get his swim shorts just soaked and then bend over and wash his hair.  He was under the impression he should take a shower, that's what you're supposed to do, right?

Corbynn is getting really big.  She just recently started pulling herself up, on EVERYTHING in the house.  Today she fell because she couldn't keep herself up on the oven.  She's got quite the independent personality (I don't know where she could possibly get that).  She also really enjoys eating!  She's only got two bottom teeth, but don't deny her food.  All she wants is table food and if she's not eating what we are I spend the meal dodging her dirty looks.  She's got such a personality for 11 months old. 

Here we go again!

So, I've decided that I do like blogging, (if you could how many blogs I follow you would believe me) problem is, I'm not very good at keeping up with my own blog.  I'm here to try again!  I promise more pictures, because the more I read blogs, the more I realize the pictures make it much more fun!

We are expecting another 'little Harris' in December and I figured since I already have this blog I should use it to record this pregnancy, especially since my last I hardly got any pics of me and it just passed by so quickly.  My official "estimated due date" is December 31, 2010.  With the history of Ben and Corbs I'm hoping to go full term, 37 weeks, which is December 10th.  I had my first appointment on the first of June.  (It was the boring one with the nurse where they just get your history ...)  My next appointment is the 23rd of June and I'm excited to hear baby's heartbeat and know all is well. 

We've been really busy lately and it's only going to get worse!  We've got double weddings this weekend with Gerad's Photography and next weekend our dear friends Jeremy and Kathy are getting married.  I'm making there cake so I'll post some pictures in a few weeks. 

Even though we're going to be busy, I'm going to be posting more ... It's a goal of mine, some "mom time!"
