Christmas 2010

We were unable to come back to Dubuque/Elizabeth for Christmas this year, so we made the best of it here at home.

30 week progression

We are at about week 31, and have entered into the every other week doctor appointments now. They are watching me closely this time around for the pre-eclampsia condition that I had while pregnant with Alicia. We go back in next week for another size/weight check for baby. The last appointment a few weeks ago, the ultrasound showed baby was measuring exactly in the 50th percentile for weight and length which was awesome!! We've never really been there with Alicia, even from the beginning, she was behind the chart, so this was a great milestone for us with this new guy. We'll keep you updated on our progress, and here's to a smooth last trimester!

Thanksgiving 2010

We had a nice long Thanksgiving weekend this year back home, and we are glad we got to spend all that time with the family, since we were in homebound in Chicagoland for Christmas this year. We got some really good card games in at Aunt Vera and Uncle Eric's house this Thanksgiving, plus they even found their old accordion, which Alicia loved when Grandma Kloss and the others were showing it to her! She sure has a musical bug in her. :)

Also, over the holiday weekend, we had a nice visit at Aunt Ann (Auntie Ups) and Uncle Dan's house. Alicia got to play with some of her other cousins that we don't get to see a lot of, so that was a special treat.

Cali's Baptism

Our niece, Cali, was baptized this last November. I think all of Ann and Todd's immediate family were present for Cali's special day. Uncle Drew and Aunt Melissa were Cali's godparents. I think Cali slept the entire time and was a little angel in church and didn't even really cry! Alicia was very excited and did a great job being very quiet in church too, plus she really wanted her pictures taken with Cali too, just like daddy and everyone else.
