So the night we found out I was pregnant is pretty funny. Anthony and I were driving home from a play, and it was about 10:00pm. He said, "So, do you think you could be pregnant?" And I was like, "Well, maybe. I acutally am late." (I didn't even realize I was late before he asked!) He then suggested we buy a pregnancy test, and I was like, "No, I don't think I'm pregnant." Then I started thinking, "Oh, geez. What if I AM pregnant?!" So we went to the grocery store nearby and bought a test. Went home. Read the directions. Re-read the directions. (You don't want to mess that up. I know peeing on a stick sounds easy, but still.) Peed. Waited 3 minutes. And 2 lines appeared. Pregnant!
I think I was still in shock at this point. I just held up the test and showed Anthony and he didn't believe it. It was pretty funny. Then I was like, "Well, what if it says I am but I am really not?!" So of course I make Anthony drive to Wal Mart because that's the only place that is now open (it's midnight by now.) But I don't just want to buy a pregnancy test at midnight, and nothing else. That is too obvious. So we bought a bag of salad haha So we buy the test and the salad, and the checkout person says "good luck." Lovely. We go home, and I take another test. And another. All positive!
I wanted to keep them for memory sake, but then Anthony reminded me my pee was on them. Good point. So once the shock wore off, we couldn't stop smiling, and the rest that has followed has been great.
Anthony and I are dorks and decided we couldn't wait till the 20 week ultrasound to find out the gender of our baby, so our doctor said she could do a 'gender check ultrasound' at 16 weeks. This week was my 16th week, so we went in and got the gender check ultrasound. Anthony thought it was a boy, and I thought it was a girl. And guess who was right??!? I WAS! WE ARE HAVING A GIRL! And we couldn't be more thrilled. It will be so fun to have a little girl:) She will be the best dressed little lady on the block. The first image below is showing the gender. The doctor said, "Notice how there isn't anything hanging down right there?" and we were both like, "Yaaa..." and she said, "That means it's a girl!" The next picture is of her cute little hand. She has all her fingers spread out like she is waving. It is so neat. And then her little leg is the next picture, and the last one is a profile shot. It is a surreal experience seeing your baby for the first time. I had a perma-smile the whole rest of the day.

So, the famous rider of Nitro Circus is Travis Pastrana. I didn't know who he was, but I saw some people taking pictures of this guy, so I thought it was Travis Pastrana.
He is a very good rider, and does some of the craziest tricks. The night consisted of tons of stunts, tricks, races, and people getting hurt. They had one APX employee try and do a back flip on a bike...not a pretty picture. The poor guy did NOT make the flip, and he hobbled off the track.
The Jazz Bear even attened the party. They towed him on a line all the way around the track and he did some jumps on a BMX bike. That upped cool points for the Jazz--they need cool points.
It was a great night out with my hubby. Afterwards we went to Smashburger--delish burgers. Little Isaiah fell asleep as soon as we sat down.
