Just a note to say

"Dress warmly
               Eat well
                    Stay safe and sound
                                            Keep Smiling
                                                       We're always there for you...."
                                                                           The Tigger Movie

I just LOVE that from The Tigger Movie!!!

All is well in the Livingston household. I am thankful for many things even if most of them include things like being tired all of the time or having tons of headaches. All of that means that the bambino(a) is growing and thriving. I will be 11 weeks tomorrow and am excited that I am getting closer and closer to the second trimester mark.

We all THREE just got over some annoying colds and boy am I glad that is OVER!!!! Noah and Todd were able to take some meds and get a little relief, but all I had was my trusty humidifier. I am not one to just let colds take their course, I take medicine for everything!! So this was a bit harder than previous colds. I was lucky to never really get sick when I was preggers with Noah bear. Hoping and praying that we are done with sickness, however, I am sure that was not the last of it.

Now let's talk about Noah! Noah, oh Noah! My sweet little boy!! He is my little helper or should I say big helper. He is so loving and kind. I could just eat him up!! He has become the little arguer and honestly gets it honest. I can't help but almost crack up when he is telling me that he HAS TO have chewies (gummies). He gets so animated and serious.

He has started to become interested in disney type movies. His new FAV is Bolt. We have watched it atleast 5 times and I haven't minded since I feel so tired and puny lately. And he still adores music and sings little made up songs like his classic "Momma Dadda Sit Right Dere". He even requests Zac Brown Band on my iphone as one of his FAVS to jam out to. He is still a picky eater and will not try new things. He sticks to the same ole things and I am hoping that he will start some veggies when he gets older or maybe I can enforce them when he gets older. Right now his source of vegetables consists of spaghetti o's and capri sun fruit and veggie mix. Yeah don't judge...I offer him them all of the time, but NO go!! :( BOOO!!

I still believe he hasn't gotten his second year molars and am a bit concerned b/c I believe he should have them by now. Speaking of teeth, he loves to brush his teeth. Which makes me soo happy!!! We still haven't done a dentist visit b/c he does NOT do well at the doctor's office. He knows where we are as soon as we pull up and doesn't like being poked and prodded. Although I have to say his dr. rocks!!

I keep trying to imagine Noah with a little brother or sister and just can't seem to wrap my brain around it. I am so excited to find out the gender so I can really start dreaming :)

And of course I can't leave without a few pictures (especially for my Aunt Sue). Noah is always pulling out the bread and pnut butter wanting to make a sandwich so one night we let him! He was so proud (us too)!!!

Ultrasound @ 7 wks 2 days

I am still in shock at God's miracle taking place in our lives!!! We had another ultrasound yesterday and as usual I prepared myself for the worst. I didn't even want to look at the screen until I heard good news. And there was our little miracle and his/her heart was just a fluttering!! The baby grew from 2mm to 10mm and the heart rate was 134 bpm!!
You can see the yolk sac very clear in this picture!! The doctor said that I could take finally take a deep breath! I know we still have a LONG way to go!!!! And honestly, I don't think I can take a deep breath just yet. I am sure on viability day I will be able to :)

We are thankful beyond words about this sweet baby!!!! I am still asking for prayers for this amazing life to thrive and grow!!! Oh and my due date is 6-19-13 (which is also my neecy poo's bday)!!

Happy Halloween 2012!!

Happy Halloween!!!
