the amazing escape artist hamster

So our little family pet hamster ( I can't have a dog yet, so I have to have something!) named Evee, short for evil Canieval (sp?) because she has no fear and will jump off almost anything has lived happily with us for about a year. I usually have the lid off the cage becasue she has never been able to get out and its just easier to get to her and play with her that way. However, the other day I was doing dishes and turned around, and there was my hamster scampering around on the floor. needless to say I was rather surprised and have had the lid on ever since, but the next day I took it off and got the camera, and managed to catch on film exactly how she had done it, I was amazed!

waiting for Baby Jefferson!

My Little Man at about 20 weeks

Hey, I am alive, and hopefully my blog will be too from now on!
Ok a few cool things about being pregnant

#1. Baby showers!
well I had my first baby shower, a combination shower with wendy, and it was so much fun! Elizabeth put it on and I loved it! she also did this adorable scrapbook page and emailed to me, and I hope she doesn't mind that I am going to show it off here!

#2. getting the room ready!
So we are getting ready to paint the nursery in the next week or two. That will be so fun, I will get to start finding a place for everything that I have gotten and actually set up little Jeff's room! hooray! in the meantime I am finding myself in the nesting stage, I feel like I have to clean everything, reorganize everything. Its funny I get this list in my head of all the things I am going to do, and then after doing one of them I am exhausted, its funny how being pregnant makes everything twice as difficult to do, hahaha, but thats ok, Im not going to school so I have time:)

#3 speculating
I find myself wondering what my little kick-boxer is going to be like when he finally gets here a lot lately. I can tell he is going to be an active guy just like his daddy. I also wonder what he will look like and find myself picking out features that I think he will have from me and from mike. so the other day I pulled out brand new baby pictures of me and mike and put them next to each other and that was a lot of fun, so I am going to post the pictures

baby Mike

Baby Annie

any speculations as to what baby Jefferson is going to look like?
