6 Weeks Ultrasound

Here is a picture of Hannah's baby brother or sister. He/She is measuring 5 weeks and 6 days old. I am 6 weeks pregnant. Please pray for our new baby that they would grow and develop correctly. So much is growing and forming in this early stage. We were able to see the heartbeat on the ultrasound screen this afternoon. Please pray that the heart would continue to beat. We are so thankful to the Lord for blessing us with this new little one.

Note: On the top picture the white fuzzy area is my womb. The dark oval is the sac where the baby is. The top white-ish small circle is the baby!! He/She is just a VERY small little baby right now. =)

I've got a secret...

Hannah is going to be a big sister! In case the hint from the last note went misunderstood... I, Joanna, am 6 weeks pregnant today. I am due July 20, 2008. Tomorrow Hannah, Josh, GG, and I go to the doctor and I will have my first ultrasound. The heart should have begun beating this past week so if everything is going normal in this pregnancy we should be able to see the heart beating on the ultrasound screen.
Please pray that they baby would continue to grow and develop normally. Please pray for all the organs as they are beginning to grow and function. Please pray for me that I would not be too sick as I have Hannah to take care of!
We are excited!!

This past Thursday night Josh and I came down with sore throats and other cold symptoms. Hannah thankfully doesn't seem to have anything but a runny nose. We are still recovering and hope to be over it soon.
Thanksgiving is next week and I don't know where the month of November has gone! Josh has finals all this week and then will be done with school for the semester. We are SO thrilled. Next week Josh, Hannah, and I will head to Hartselle, Alabama for Thanksgiving with many family members. We just can't wait!!
Hannah is going to have so much fun! I thought you might like this cute picture...

Feeding Hannah Peas

Feeding Hannah peas (or any other vegtable) always provides some good faces and plenty of laughes. Enjoy!

Joanna is Now 25!

Well, I have been meaning to write and update about the events of my birthday. I had a great Wednesday. Josh and Hannah woke me up and I opened my presents in bed. I got a Vera Bradley duffle bag and a USB Flash Drive. Hannah even wrote on my birthday card! She is so smart! Hannah and I had to go to work for a few hours and play with Charlotte. When we came home Josh and gone out and gotten my cake and we opened it up, lit the candles and sang, and dug right into the cake! In the middle of the afternoon! I really enjoyed having such a different mixed up order of events in my birthday. But I did like the idea of presents in bed. Maybe we'll keep that tradition! After we all took a nap (Josh was off for the day), we all got dressed and ready to go out to eat. (with birthday money - thank you Mom T) We went to a great italian placed called "Bravo!". Haven't heard of it? Have you heard of Olive Garden? Bravo! is like 20 times better let me tell you!! I got the Chicken Pomodoro (fancy chicken parm with big hunks of fresh mozerella cheese on top). Hannah ate baby food and her kid menu. She had a lot of fun and the place was almost empty because everyone was out trick or treating! Afterwards we went to the mall and just walked around. All in all I had a super day and look forward to many more birthdays to come.

Hannah is doing great. She is now 8 months old and so spunky! She won't sit still on your lap anymore! She LOVES to wiggle around. She is SO close to crawling and Josh and I can't wait for this next milestone. It is so amazing watching our little girl grow up. She loves to read (and eat) books too. Her teeth are finally getting some height to them and you can see them when she smiles. We went and had her 8 month pictures taken today and they were SO awesome! Hannah had many good ones with smiles. We ordered 7 different poses! Most of you should be receiving a copy sometime in the near future. We'll also have Christmas ones done right after Thankgiving!

Not much else going on here. I will say, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPPY!" (aka Dad Hunter). Love to all!!
PS Notice in this last picture you can see her bottom two teeth!! =)
