Pink or Blue Pink or Blue Pink or Blue....?


We went to visit with our Dr. on Tuesday (Dr. Sanders who we love!)  First the took us into a room showed us our progress, told me the difference in my belly size, :D and then we heard the heart beat. Our lil one was thumping away at 156 beats a minute. Then they sent us back out into the waiting room, to wait for the ultrasound. When they FINALLY took us back again, (along with my sappy twin sister, Mary) they warned us, we might not be able to tell the sex yet. BUT THEY DID!!! 
We're having a boy. I grabbed John by the face and kissed him, while Mary was sitting in the chair in the far corner of the room, crying looking up at that huge screen displaying our baby! oh my gosh is was so excited. Then she flipped on the 3D image. now that was the bee's knees. haha we are so super excited. 
We really like the name Judah Matthew Young. You can call him Jude. :D

If you look close enough in this picture, you can see his lil arm stretching up toward his eyes, and his legs curled up under him. (This is the 3D picture).

This is where the picture they took showing us we have a boy, it's a little blurred, I apologize. but you can see it for the most part.

The excitement keeps building

After taking part in our good friends wedding (Mr. and Mrs. Hodges), we started getting even more excited about the wedding of our own. With Lydia as our minister we are so thrilled to be that much closer to having everything we need. We have two places to way the options of for location, but we haven't yet decided. ALTHOUGH we have decided on a date. September 30th.

We also have a lot of excitement about the coming up week. :D On Tuesday we have an untrasound appointment to see if we can tell the gender of our baby!! we can't wait. Hopefully he or she wants the world to see who they are on Tuesday. We looked at the Chinese zodiac calender (which claims to be 90% accurate) and it said Boy. so we'll but the calender to the test. We will come back with more details and hopefully some pictures as soon as we know. :D

the +one of the family

We have a few names, but right now their just ideas:
(mix the two maybe? Oliver Jude?)
the name Nolan has come into conversation, too.

Your baby is actually quite large by now, a whopping 3 inches long in some cases and weighs in at roughly .7 ounces. By 13 weeks pregnant your baby's intestines are working on maturing and your baby's tiny pancreas is working hard to produce insulin. This will help your baby regulate her blood sugar levels in the months and years following delivery.
Your baby's eyes also start to move closer to the center of your baby's head. The head can move easily from side to side and up and down, and the facial features are starting to form. Your baby's arms have almost reached final proportion and length, though the legs are still quite short relative to the baby's body. At 13 weeks pregnant, your baby can now probably flex its arms and kick its legs. He or she may also be able to put a thumb in his or her mouth, although the sucking muscles are not yet completely developed.
The sockets for all twenty teeth are formed in the gums, and vocal cords are beginning to form. Other things happening at this time are the appearance of fingernails, the beginnings of fingerprints and footprints, the start of vocal cord formation, the appearance of visible ribs. The trachea, lungs, stomach, liver, pancreas, and intestines are developing into their final functioning form.

it's so exciting to see week by week whats happening with our lil monkey!

Introducing John,Jenn+One

John (23)
Jenn (21)
2 years ago, in July, we met. We kicked off quick. Became close friends almost instantly. We moved in together the following May. But the catch was that we were just 'friends' at this time. We never ever even kissed.
We shared a bed for 6 months. We had a rough patch, like any good relationship has. We started living together again in February of 2011. One night, things sparked between the two of us, in a completely different fashion. We let our relationship grow within itself. Since the begining of this new found relationship, we got a dog. What kind? I couldn't tell ya, but he's cute and we love him. His name is, Jack. He is a spontanious, hyper, exciting addition to our lil family. BUT Jack is not our +One. Our +one is nearly 14 weeks in the whomb. Which means we've passed the threshold and have moved into the second trimester. We haven't picked out any names yet, but we have a few we're pondering (we don't reject ideas =D). We have lots of dreams, but which one we act on first, we can't tell you quit yet.
     We want to take a road trip to where ever the road guides us, from town to town, and find a place for our family to start and grow. where ever we can make it, where ever we can be happy together, the four of us. We want to find a place that has comfort, land and trees. We have a dream of building a tree house for us to live in. I don't mean 4 walls balancing in a tree that a group of kids built in their childhood. I mean a house with everything you need in a house. Running water, power, sewer, etc. but that dream is for a different post.
     That's the jist of us.
