What a treat! Last night I got to go to a crop! A crop, in case you don't know, is kind of the scrapbooking equivalent of a quilting bee. People go with their scrapbooks and spread out and work companionably on their own stuff. I've been meaning to go for a while but things always came up. But last night, Andy and Allen took turns watching Ruby so I could go. I got several pages done and enjoyed being in the company of other ladies (several of whom had little kids, too). One of the best hings about a crop is that the consultant who holds it usually has a lot of Creative Memories tools (punches, cutting tools, fancy scissors, etc.) that she lets us use. Good deal!
Yesterday I also had an ultrasound. The tech said that it would be too soon to tell the sex of the baby...darn! I kept my eyes peeled as I watched the screen, and for a fleeting second I thought I saw some, ah, boy parts. But I certainly couldn't swear to it. But the baby is definitely looking more like a baby and less like a speck. I have felt movement every so often, too. My 20 week ultrasound will be in a month or so, and that's the one where I will hopefully find out the sex. So excited! Excited to start feeling more of the baby kicking, too. I'm just starting to show a bit now. I will put up some pictures when we get a new computer. I don't know if I can get pictures from my camera onto the computer we're using now (my school-issued laptop, a PC, blehhh).
