Baby Sister's name

I was talking to Matthew yesterday about his baby sister and what her name should be. I figured I should get his input :) So I asked him, "What should the baby's name be?" and this is how it went:

Matthew: "Baby's name be?"
Me: "Yeah... what should we name your baby sister, do you think?"
Matthew: *thinks* "Mummy?"
Me: lol "Well, that's already my name... we need a new name for the baby."
Matthew: "New name for baby?"
Me: "Yeah... a new name. What do you think we should call her?"
Matthew: *thinks* "Daddy?"
Me: lol "K, that's a good idea... but that's already Daddy's name! We need a brand new name."
Matthew: "Matthew?"
Me: "Hmmmm. Yes... good choice. But... that's your name! That's what we picked for you! We need a new name, just for baby."
Matthew: *thinks... hard* "Um..." *thinking* *looks around* "Oh!... Pirate."

So... okay. Baby Pirate it is then.

Couple of recent videos

Just had to share these recent videos of Matthew. He was playing with his cars last night as we were cleaning the kitchen (okay, while Sean cleaned the kitchen... I was just standing around, haha). His new thing is to have his cars talk to each other, and he makes up random songs (almost always to the tune of "Frere Jacques").

I'm not sure why he's *yelling* here but I think it's so the cars can hear each other on the different levels. Hehehehe. Also please excuse the poor quality and sound :)

Matthew's Story

Matthew told me a story this morning, out of the blue while I was getting him dressed. This is how it went (word for word):

"Once upon a time*, there was a little boy named "Baba",
Who slept in the bed, and couldn't get up in the morning.
The End."

*(How does he even know 'Once upon a time'?? lol!)

24 week Dr visit & u/s

We saw the doctor last week for our regular checkup, and everything seemed great. She checked my fundal height (how big my belly is) and hummed and hawed a bit, and then gave me a requisition for an ultrasound to check the baby's growth, since I measured about 2 weeks behind. Besides that though everything seemed fine!

So we went today for the ultrasound and got another peek at the baby! She (yes, the tech confirmed that "the sex hasn't changed", haha, so it's still a girl!) was moving all around and kicked the ultrasound probe a couple of times. Little Miss Feisty :) But the tech said everything looked okay to her and she checked the fluid levels and cervix and all seemed well. She showed us the flow in and out of the umbilical cord and we watched and listened to the heartbeat. Very cool.

We also got a couple of pics. Yay! Here she is...

1. Baby is folded in half in this one, with arms and legs in front of her body:

2. A profile pic -- I think it looks like she's laughing (at us?) here:

What's UP with that?

Someone needs to explain something to me, because I really don't get it...

How is it that I can make a doctor's appointment for 2:40 pm, show up at 2:35 pm, and sit in the waiting room for over an hour, while loads of other patients can breeze in the door and go right in to see the doctor. Huh? Do they have some special pass that I wasn't aware of?

And then finally when everyone else has been seen, how is it that I'll go in and be seen for 5 minutes? A 5 minute appointment takes nearly an hour an a half out of my day. Um?

More importantly... how is it that I can be on time for an appointment, and wait around for an hour for a doc or whoever else to get good and ready to see me... Whereas if I show up for an appointment 10 minutes late, I'm marked as a 'no show' and my appointment is canceled?? Wait -- so I have to be on time... but then sit and wait for an hour to be seen? I'm confused.

What's UP with that? Seriously... I want to know. I don't get it.

24 week update!

24 weeks pregnant as of yesterday and still growing :) I still feel good, no complaints - I'm sleeping pretty well and no real aches and pains (yet, haha). We see our doctor tomorrow to see how much weight I've gained and if I need to lay off the cake and cookies. Eek! Baby G2 is constantly kicking and rolling in there, having a grand ole time on Mommy's bladder. Sean has felt a few big kicks too!

Here's the belly progression so far... so, not a huge change but I definitely feel bigger and my belly is starting to get in the way a bit. :)
