Baby girl

We had our Doctor's appointment yesterday and were able to get a 3-D ultrasound. Last time we were there the Doctor tried to get one...but the baby just kept putting her hands in front of her face...This time around she was turned towards we still weren't able to get a full face shot...but we got some profile pictures. I think this poor little girl is going to have my nose! Hopefully it's more of a mix like with Jacob...I guess we'll see.

I have to mention I'm so thankful Randy has come to ALL my appointments with me, both with Jacob and with this pregnancy. I think sometimes I just get anxious and worried,that something will go wrong, and he always cracks a joke or says something to help me feel more relaxed. I'm also grateful for Jon and Kevin, who have helped us by watching Jacob while we go to our appointments. The last couple of times we have even managed to sneak in some date nights after our appointment. :)

We are super excited to meet our little girl, and eventhough I'm 28 weeks I feel like it's forever away. We are going to the Doctor's every 2 weeks now, so I guess we're getting closer, and so far everything is good with both the baby and me. I told Jon yesterday that sometimes I wonder how I will ever get any bigger...but I will! Yay! :)

Happy Valentine's day!

Hope everyone has a great day today!
Even though I think Valentine's day is way over-rated and just an excuse for all of us to spend our money...I have always enjoyed being spoiled! So I can't complain :)

I love you mijo

-Randy had these shipped straight from Maui!- I'm impressed...Thanks mijo!

I love this country!

I passed my citizenship test/interview!! It was actually A LOT easier than I had prepared myself for. I was only asked 7 questions and they were fairly easy...except I got one wrong :( I won't tell you what it is, because I knew the right answer right after I said it!
The only thing they need from me now is proof that I have been married, and living with Randy for the last 3 years. They already have some copies of bills etc that we had previously submitted, but they don't have anything for the last 3 years. I guess the fact that I'm pregnant wasn't proof enough? :)
So as soon as they get those papers from me they'll send me a letter telling me when the next ceremony is, and I will officially become a US citizen! I think I even get a certificate that day.
I really do love this country, I tell Randy often that I feel so blessed and lucky to be living here.

Before I forget

I wanted to write down a few of the cute things Jacob has been doing lately somewhere I could easily look back on. What I really need is a journal, and to write in it...but that's another story.

Here are some of my favorite cute things Jacob has been doing lately:
(Not in any particular order)

-When he sees me in the morning or he's upstairs and I come upstairs he always gives me a big smile and says "hi momma!" - I love it!

-He randomly hugs me througout the day and makes an "ahhh" noise while he hugs me :)

-He sings (in his own little way) along to the song I sing to him before he goes to sleep (Primary song).

-He loves his 'woof, woof' blanket, he sleeps with it every night; he hugs it too :)

-He says "Thank You" a lot (again, in his own little way, it's more like "ank-yoo")

-He's very friendly, he says "hi" or "hello" to everyone and anyone we run into.

-He loves nursery! This is a huge blessing, because before nursery he would get bored after 2 minutes of being in class :) So we would roam the halls on a regular basis.

-Whenever I give him a 'treat' or something he really likes, he always says "ank-yoo momma!" It's so super cute, I need to get it on video.

-If I ask him if he wants to 'kiss the baby' he always says "yeah" and kisses my belly and gives my belly a big hug along with his 'ahhh' noise.

-He absolutely LOVES Elmo, anything from his slippers to his books or bib, he can't get enough of him!

-He loves to 'read'! He just really loves it when we read to him or when he flips through his books and asks us "what's that?" for any little thing in the book.

-He understands 2 words in Spanish..."mocos" and "Agua" - He actually said "Agua" today, but I could have heard him wrong. Random words I know, but it's a start right?

-We play the 'Jacob 8-ball game' with's pretty much Randy asking him random, off the wall questions and seeing if Jacob says 'yeah' or 'no,no,no''s hilarious!

-Whenever he can't find a toy or he misplaces something, he will ask "where is it?"

-He sings along to the 'Backyardigans' full voiced, and tries to copy their dance moves.

-He recently started calling Nala "Nala" instead of "nana" :) He sounds so cute!

-He folds his arms as soon as we are at the table...but he won't close his eyes when we pray!

-If he wants us to get him down from his high chair he says "down, down"

-He counts to three...but starts at two every time!

-He had something dirty on his hand once and I said "ewwww!" So now when he gets his hands dirty, instead of cleanding them...he just says "ewww!" and wants me to clean him up!

-He knows who 'pooh' is, we were at the store the other day and he pointed at one and said 'pooh?' :)

Those are all the ones I can think of right now...If I think of more I will add them later :)

-Here he is at Great-Grandpa Taylor's Birthday party...they had a nice selection of books at the club house...those who went know what I mean!
