There is WAY too much that has happened since the last time I blogged, so much in fact that I'm not going to go in to too much detail over everything. Just the big stuff! For X-mas this year, my brother, step-sister, dad and Leah and my aunt and uncle, all chipped in and got us a laptop!! So, now, my blogging should be more frequent. As for right now, it's ridiculously late and I don't want to start it all this moment. More to come soon! Just in case anyone who reads this, thought I fell off the planet!

We didn't think we'd be around for Halloween, considering how late Brian was! Luckily, my doctor was nice enough to induce me and we made it! The kids would've killed us if we weren't there for trick or treating! They were so excited for Brian to participate, but I kindly explained that a one day old baby cannot go outside on Halloween. Not to mention the fact that he won't eat candy either! So, they were nice enough to let me stay home and pass out candy this year!! What nice children I have! Blake was so excited to be Harry Potter. I found his Gryffindor robe at Good Will for 3 bucks!! It was brand new too! SCORE! Nana's was at Good Will also and it was 6 dollars. The onl extra thing I bought was Nana's broom and it was a measely 3 dollars. So, all in all, if you do the math correctly, I only spent 12 bucks! Woo hoo! Our next door neighbor bought Blake his potter glasses and he wittled his own wand. Yes, I said wittled! He got a "real" pocket knife from Uncle Robbie and he decided he wanted to carve a stick in to a wand shape. He's very resourceful! They kept trying to convince me to get a costume for Brian but they didn't understand that a 24 hour old baby wouldn't fit in to any kind of costume! Ha ha!! Here are a few of the photos we took of the spooky night!!

Here he is!! Brian William Erickson. I decided on a middle name that was a little more traditional than DANGER! We still call him baby danger, so at least he'll have that nickname for the rest of his life!
So, it is very apparent that I haven't blogged in a while, considering the last blog entry is me very pregnant! So, I have a bit of catching up to do! Pardon me while I enter in three months of big, fat, beautiful, baby!!! Enjoy!

Just look at this belly!! Todd likes to make fun of the size of this thing, ALL THE TIME! He has to constantly remind me that it is gigantic! Isn't he lovey! Like I don't realize the size of it?! DUH! Everyone keeps asking if we are having twins!? YIKES!!! No way! We are very excited! This picture was taken last week, at 32 weeks. I am thoroughly enjoying this pregnancy, and as excited as I am to see the little boy, I kinda don't want the pregnancy to be over! Weird, huh?! Oh well. I guess there's no slowing it down now!! We decided to name him Brian...after his daddy, of course. He was very flattered...like I needed to increase the size of his ego, HA!

So, we had the ultrasound. It was exciting and the kids got to go, so they were pretty excited, not only to find out what it is, but also to see how they did it! They did say it is a boy though! The umbilical cord was between his legs, so it was kind of hard to tell the sex, but the radiologist said if she had to put money on it, she would go with the boy side. I want to keep an open mind, just in case, but we're going with the boy thing anyway. We are SO excited!! Brianna was not excited however. Grandma Erickson went with us and of course, Nana was with her the whole time. Well, when the doc said she thought it was a boy, Nana buried her head in Angie's shoulder and balled!! It was SO sad! She didn't look up the rest of the appointment. She got over it by the next day though. She's excited too, now. :) I don't have a scanner otherwise I'd post the pics of the baby. All I have are pictures of the face because the nurse wouldn't take pictures of the "sex organs." She told us that taking pictures of naked children is child pornography. Well duh, but an ultrasound picture....really?!?!?! WHAT??????????? It's a black dot on a black and white photo of an alien looking blob in your stomach! What the crap!? It was probably one of the most outrageous things I've ever heard, but I couldn't argue, she wouldn't budge! LOSER! I wanted to yell at her and tell her to give me a picture of my son's pee pee, NOW. I held back. On that note...If I get a hold of a scanner, I'll post some pics of THE FACE ONLY! Ha ha ha! Crazy people out there!!

For those of you who are looking at my last blog with wondering eyes, yes...it is true, we're having another baby!! We are so excited! The kids are really excited as well. Nana wants a girl, go figure, and Blake wants...guess...yes, a boy! Funny how that works. We don't know yet what it is. We find out Friday. i will make sure and post it as soon as i find out! Watch that baby countdown widget and follow along with us! Yay!
