Ellie Rocks!!

So, I've been meaning to post about Ellie for at least a week now, and being the good mom that I am...I've continued to forget about it. Well, now that she's sleeping I don't have to hear her tell me to get off the stupid computer (usually I change my mind about her awesomeness when that happens)...

Anyway, on to the reason why Ellie is the best. Last Sunday was our ward's primary program, and about four weeks before the primary president called and asked if Ellie would do this talk again. She LOVED giving/practicing that talk, so of course I was more than happy to have her do it. However, over a four week span, Ellie was sick of practicing. She would throw a couple of fits, and the only thing that would shape her up was when I would tell her I would have Grace give it (her little friend that was coming to church with us). I started thinking this was a bad idea.

Well, the day came. We invited Great Grandpa and Grandma, Grandma GiGi, Grandpa and Grandma Jessen, and Aaron's family (well Aaron called to ask if he could come, because they asked him to talk in church, and he didn't want to). Everyone was there. When it was time for Ellie's talk, I could tell she was a little nervous. That little girl of mine got up to the mic with a full audience of adults (everyone knows she doesn't like adults), and gave her talk all by herself. She rocked!! Dan even said he got a little misty eyed...he loves that baby girl.

Boy, Oh Boy

On Thursday, we went to my ultrasound to find out the sex of our baby. Turns out what I thought was an umbilical cord was actually a penis (trust me, they are easy to confuse)! :P

We also found out that I am two weeks ahead of schedule...I call foul. Pretty sure I kept track of everything this time around. Ellie was an oops, and I had no idea how far along I was with her. I just think I might be pregnant with a chunk. So, the new tentative due date is February 13th. We'll see what happens.

On the way home from the doctor's office, we stopped by the health department to get our H1N1 shots. We waited for 1 1/2 hours. I was surprised how many people were there considering all the negative things I had heard about this shot. Anyway, it all went well. I got the shot and Dan and Ellie got misted, and get this....we're still alive!! :P
