Family Update!

We had another ultrasound done today. We decided to take Jyllian to this one as she is getting quite excited about being a big sister. She keeps saying, "Jyllie Bean big sister." Its pretty cute. She knows that a baby is in mommy's tummy and she will lift up my shirt and say "Hi Baby!" I think she is a little confused on where the baby is, but gets the concept that it is in my belly. So anyways we had an ultrasound. They seem to take sooo much longer to do this time around. With Jyllian the Dr. did it in the exam room so I guess he was able to see what he needed to and that was that. Now the Radiology dept at the hospital does the ultrasounds so they take forever. I guess they want to make sure the Dr. see's everything she needs to. Its a little painful with a full bladder! Justin was unable to make it to this apt. as there was an emergency at work that he had go to. So it was just me and Jyllian. Jyllian walked into the room and must of had a flashback of when she had to go into the ultrasound room and started to bawl! I thought oh great, but they brought in a tech to play with her while we were getting the ultrasound done and she had toys to play with Jyllian. So that was really nice. We got to see some good pics of our little one. Its just amazing how fast they grow--as you can see from the pictures this time around, you can really see a lot more than the last time. I am only posting one of the pictures--a picture of the face. You can see the nose and head and mouth. Pretty cute :) The baby measured 13 weeks 2 days so a week ahead of what I am supposed to be. So we will see. Hope you enjoy!
I am beginning to feel a lot better. I am not as sick as I was, and my energy is starting to come back. I sure do look forward to the weekends so I can take naps with Jyllian :) Being at work all day sure does wear me out. I'm starting to out grow my pants--so much sooner than with Jyllian. With Jyllian I was able to wear my regular pants right through the pregnancy, not this time around. Maybe that is an indicator on what our little one is!?!? We have our suspicions, but we will have to wait and see until around 20 weeks to know for sure. We are anxiously waiting!
Other than that not much is going on. We are all staying busy. Jyllian is getting bigger and bigger every day. She is amazing us with all she knows. She can carry on quite the conversation and is so smart. She cracks us up with the things she comes up with to say. We are close to being potty trained. She wears big girl panties at home, but still wears pull-ups at daycare just in case. But today she didn't even go potty in her pull-up at daycare all day. She goes into the bathroom all by herself and gets up on the potty and goes. So we are getting there. Yay!
Work is a constant struggle. I am not sure if its just that I haven't been feeling that great, the abundance of low kids I have, or just the fact that I have several naughty kids this year, but they seriously put me over the edge on a pretty regular basis. Everyone just says to me, "ohh Kylea you have a very "diverse" class this year." I guess thats one way of putting it :) So its hard, but we are getting through it. I have been extremely fortunate to have 2 really good years, so I guess its my turn to have a rough one :)
Justin is staying busy too. Its that time of year for hunters and getting called out at night for calls. Sometimes it seems I just don't see that much of him. One night he was called out on a search for Search and Rescue at 8:00pm on a Friday night and I didn't see him again until 10:00am on Sunday morning and that was only for 10 mins before he was called out on another call. So its hard on him, me and Jyllian. She misses her daddy when he is gone that long.
So I guess that is all for the update.
