I am making a Blanket for Brock and I's little Peanut so I thought I would share it with you all. I need to figure out how to connect the squares. I will probably stalk around Youtube to learn how. I am excited about this little project and can't wait until Peanut gets to use it. Let me know what you think. I will post another picture when I get further along in the process.

A Prune...

I found this info rather interesting and thought I would share with all of you...

Baby Lusch is now the size of a prune!
With bones and cartilage starting to form and vital organs beginning to function, baby is making major progress. Body length will almost double in the next three weeks, and arm joints are now working. (Soon, legs will start working too.) (from the bump.com)

It amazes me just how spectacular God is in the molding and forming of this tiny little human within me. I am also dumbfounded that I have the capability to allow for this new creation to grow. It is all very weird and extremely cool all at the same time.

I am definitely feeling the effects as I do not sleep well, the bathroom constantly calls my name (rather bladder), and I am still nauseous most of the time. Thankfully Canada Dry Ginger Ale helps to take that annoyance away and the little 8oz cans are perfect.

I am currently making a baby blanket in my spare time and when the process starts to come together I will add a picture. Brock and I go back to the doc. at the end of the month and we will hopefully find out if the little peanut is a girl or boy. And then I can't wait to come up with creative ways to tell everyone what the baby's gender is. It will be fun.

I think that is all for now...
Peace Love and Prayers

From Brock: Also to add to this post my parents were in town this weekend to hang out and go to the Reds game. Before the game my mom and dad bought us our first bit of baby clothing. It is a cute little outfit for a boy or girl.

Week 10...

So I thought I would kill some time and write an update on what is happening within my body. I am currently in week 10 and our baby looks something like this...

I am truly amazed at how quickly this little being is changing and growing. Lil Lusch is about 1 inch long at this point and things are going fairly well thus far. I have only had 1 appointment but we go back to the doc. at the end of the month. I am completely exhausted today as I didn't sleep well last night and due to lack of sleep I'm getting a headache... tylenol here I come. I am also very nauseous most of the time which makes me not want to eat but I do it anyway as I know lil peanut and I need the nutrition.

Now onto my amazing and wonderful Husband, Brock N. Lusch. I cannot stop bragging about how amazing and wonderful he has been throughout this entire process. Before we found out about our blessing Brock would take care of so many things that I could count, once we found out; Brock has stepped it up a million times. He does the laundry, vacuums, cleans the floors, does the dishes, cooks, takes care of Dexter and forces me to have some girl time and lots of naps. He is beyond amazing and I never knew what type of jackpot I won when I married this enormous blessing I call my Husband.

Brock I love you more than my words can ever express and I cannot thank you enough for all the love you heap upon me each day. I am excited to become Mama with you as Papa.

Blessings to all who read this. I will update again in the near future.

1st Doctor's Visit

This is not a picture of our baby!!
Today was Corie's first doctor's visit. This was an interesting and exciting time for us. We walked into the office For Women Inc. and started filling out paperwork. I already felt like I was in foreign territory but I had fun sitting there with Corie and talking and laughing about the baby doing goofy things in the womb like bungee jumping, acting like a mission impossible person or a circus act and just running around the womb like on a wall. Then we got called into the doctors room and the process started. Questions about family and personal history, no problems to be really worried about. Then started the examination, I made fun of the paper gown with comments like trying to use it as a Kleenex to blow my nose with, and as a napkin to clean up imaginary spots. Corie was laughing which was good and then when the doctor came back in we got to see the baby's heart beating like a little strobe light. It was so cool. We did not cry like most thought we would but I have a feeling that will come when we get to hear the heart beat. It is the size of a small bean so we are calling it Peanut right now. The whole experience was so real and exciting and we are glad to be getting to share it with you all.
