Happy Halloween!

My mom decided to dress Eli up as a pumpkin!

Tulsa Trip!

We had a blast last weekend in Tulsa with my entire family visiting my sister! We ate a LOT of good food, watched some movies, played some games, went for walks, etc! It was a great mini vacation for us and it felt great to get away, relax, and have some fun! Eli gave me a couple kicks on my left side that made my stomach pop out!

Most recent info on Eli

At our sonogram everything looked great! His heartbeat was 138, I'm 20 weeks and 2 days, and he weighs 13 oz. He really looked like he'd grown quite a bit in the last two weeks!


We had another sonogram yesterday since I was a little early last time. Eli was moving around like crazy and opening his mouth! It was so precious! We are slowly getting the nursery done! It's painted an ash violet color and we have our black crib up! I've been feeling great except for my lower back. It's started bothering me; I have a feeling it's definitely going to be a problem for me in this last half of my pregnancy! Lately I've been having baby dreams a lot and waking up early thinking of all the stuff I need to get before he arrives! It feels like time is flying by!

It's A BOY!

We had our ultrasound yesterday and found out that we're having a BOY! My mom was able to come, and it made it all the more special. I was so relieved to hear and see that he's physically measuring great and that all his organs are functioning properly! He was moving around a bit, but I still can't feel it because the placenta is at the top and is absorbing the kicks! The surprise was that he's measuring two weeks farther along than we originally thought, so I'm on my 20th week; my new due date is March 5, 2008! The funniest part was that she put the wand on my stomach for the first time and there on the screen was a PENIS! There was no missing it! We were laughing so hard....there was no suspense :-) My mom broke out the blue gum cigars and we celebrated by going across the street and seeing Josh and Amy Racchini in the hospital with their new baby Ethan two hours after he was born! What a cutie! Then, on to our favorite restaurant, Panera, for more celebration! Here are some pictures of Elijah James Judson!

We had a great weekend in Minneapolis with my family, plus my mom's friends Nancy and Stro. My brother, Will, was up for Homecoming King, so we watched the ceremony and laughed at him when he lost. He said it was the most pointless experience of his life :-) We also celebrated Will's birthday and had a blast driving around in the country Geo Cacheing and going through a corn maze. My sister and her husband were able to come up from Tulsa, and it was great to see them! None of us wanted to leave my mom's great cooking and delicious desserts!
