(L-R) 1. Confirming that he is a boy! 2. Profile Picture
3. Face picture. His left arm is going over his head.
He still looks long and skinny and I thought today that his lips looked just like Joseph's...I so anxious to see what he is going to look like.

Today's ultrasound went great. The fluid cyst has gone away and I found out today that they usually disappear after 25 weeks. They checked and measured him again and he looks healthy. We are so thankful and thank you for all your prayers. During the the last ultrasound they said he was a whopper, so I asked if he was measuring larger than 28 weeks. The technician said I was 28 weeks 4 days and he is measuring 29 weeks 1 day...not that big. He is at 2 lbs. 11 oz, apparently right on target.

Other news, our baby/big boy is 23 months today. *sniff* One more month of having a 1 year old.. so sad. I have had so much fun with him being one, but am looking forward to the new year and new challenges that are on the horizon.

I was tagged to post the 6th picture from my 6th photo album and here is what I found. All of Joseph....surprise. (These are the 6th pictures from albums 6-9)

Looks like Christmas at Marnie's and Poppy's

Trunk or Treat was pretty fun. We just couldn't think of anything to decorate our trunk with, so we just took our jack-o-lantern and stand and placed it behind our car. Pretty boring. Maybe next year will be more of a success. Joseph did really good wearing his outfit. He didn't complain about the boots or the guns hanging off to the side...oh, he was a sheriff for Halloween. I put some real Wranglers on him and the poor little couldn't sit down. I got them on, put the belt buckle on and when he plopped down, I heard an 'uncomfortable' type sigh come from him. I took them off and put a more comfortable pair of jeans on him.
We ended the night with a party at the Counterman's house. There was Juanita's famous and delicious confetti chili and tons of other great stuff. We had a great time and I am so sad I didn't bring my camera inside to capture some of the hilarity that took place. Now that I think about, it is probably a good thing I didn't capture some of the things on camera. Let me just say this about some of the wonderful and respectable people there....I had no idea. You girls were an absolute blast!

Our first attempt to get just the boys wasn't a success so the mom's had to get in the picture too.

The mom's attempting to get the boys to sit and get a picture taken. John was not wanting to have anything to do with the picture. And I have no idea who the Spiderman kid is....we had asked him if we could get a picture and he said ok, but I didn't realize he hadn't gotten out of the way.

I just thought this was cute. Him losin' his holster.

I have no idea.

My little Sheriff. (Thanks Linds for letting us borrow the belt and boots.)
And this is what it looks like at the end of the night....soaked, no guns, no badge, and shirt untucked.
