A little scare, but all is good!

We had a little bit of a scare with the baby on Saturday morning when I noticed a little bit of bleeding. I called my OB's office and luckily my doctor was the one on call. She had us come in to check that everything was okay. We found the bleeding was due to a small infection, but all is well with the baby. And, it turned out to be all worth it because we got to have an ultrasound. It is such a crazy thing to me to get to see the baby move around inside. He/She "waved" at us, moving it's arms all around, and seeing the little heartbeat is just so amazing. Hopefully at the next one we'll be able to find out whether we should hold on to all of our pink things! Here's a picture of our little "alien":

"Not Come Up Here Mommy!"

Ellis has not yet learned the art of being sneaky. She went upstairs to get a Dora book from her room and a few minutes later she yells, "Not come up here, Mommy!" That's my cue to find her as quick as I can. Hiding

As soon as she heard me coming she squatted down to hide her face because then I can't see her. I'm glad she gave me fair warning - another couple of minutes and I'm sure there would have been toothpaste and mouthwash all over the bathroom!

And he's off!

Thunder has taken to jumping the fence. We don't have a tall fence, probably only 4 feet tall or so. But Thunder is a chihuahua mix for crying out loud! That fence is at least 4 or 5 times taller than he is.

It happened earlier this week as a woman was walking by with her dog. She had no idea where Thunder had come from and she really freaked out when he was barking like crazy at her dog I really don't blame her. But it really scared Hope, who happened to be playing outside, when she jumped over the fence to get him and the lady was screaming "What's wrong with your dog?!?!?"

Today, it happened when Ellis was just finishing using "the restroom" not #1. I heard through the screen door "Your dog jumped over the fence!" Luckily this lady didn't freak out. I yelled back, "I'll be right there" as I was trying to get EJ "cleaned up". She stood there with the dogs, and kept Thunder from running off. I ran out the door when I could and apologized I actually said, "Sorry - my 2 year-old was pooping!" and I was able to jump over the fence and grab him. I carried him back in as Ellis was walking outside with her tights and and panties around her ankle.

Bottom line - I don't know what to do to keep him from jumping over the fence!!! Help me!!!!

In other news - I'm a little over 12 weeks pregnant and look like I did at about 20 weeks with the girls at least that's how I feel. If I hadn't seen the ultrasound myself, I would swear there was more than one in there. I think by the third time, the body just "assumes position" as soon as you pee on a stick. We had an appointment on Wednesday and got to hear the heartbeat just one. All is going well!
