Yes, I'm Still Alive

It's been a long time since I posted and there are several reasons for that. First, we've been busy traveling thousands of miles. We are currently in Colorado Springs and are having a great time meeting with friends and catching up on their lives. Our week here is super jam-packed with appointments, but it's so worth it getting to see as many people as possible. Second, slow internet. While in ND, my parents have "so-called" high-speed internet, but really it's not. I've gotten spoiled and anything that isn't light-speed fast drives me crazy. But we've had a great time while in ND and on the farm. Camden LOVES being outside as much as possible chasing the dogs and cats, playing with toys from my nieces and nephews, and riding on tractors and 4-wheelers. Third, I've just been taking a bit of a blogging break, which has been nice.

Also an update on the ultrasound drama. We had our ultrasound right before we left for the states and the baby is perfectly healthy.....but bashful. Yes, that's right, the little stinker wouldn't move and show us if he's a boy or she's a girl. So we were still on a hunt for another ultrasound. A friend was working at a pregnancy center and could get us in for free. Yay! But no, our friend actually quit the week before and couldn't get us in. (I wasn't surprised at all because that's just the way this ultrasound drama has gone.) But I then googled "ultrasound in Colorado Springs" and I got a few sites of places with elective ultrasounds. I called the first one to see if I could get in the week we'd be in CS. But she didn't open for business until the week after. I plead my case with her and she said she could help me, if I could help her. She said she could "practice" on me for free, but no pictures or dvd's or printouts. YAY!!!! What an amazing blessing! So on Friday we get to try to see baby again, but this time with a 3D and 4D ultrasound........FREE! So after Friday I hope and pray that we'll be done with our ultrasound drama!

So hopefully my next post will be about our baby girl, or baby boy. I also want to post pictures of our trip so far. See ya next time!

Were you able to meet up with Amanda and Gordon and get the book that I sent for you?
