Picture of Baby

Here's the ultrasound picture from today. She/he is now 5cm (2 inches) long and got all the right bits & pieces. She/he was doing some real wriggling about and at one point even crossed legs!
Hearbeat was 158 beats per minute & all is well.
We are absolutely elated...

Back to Work

We started working on the house again today. Craig's remodelling the downstairs bathroom & I'm stripping the last of the nasty wallpaper from the stairs & games room. Found bright pink walls underneath as you can see. Lovely!

Merry Christmas!

We had a lazy, wondeful day. Rang family in England then felt a tad homesick. We watched lots of films - 40 yr old virgin, Exorcism of Emily Rose, Crash etc. Craig drank himself sober & I had a nifty Baileys, then felt guilty & drank 4 pints of water. Got the first baby gifts & Eric bought us some cool baby cowboy boots.

Christmas Parties

2 days till Christmas
5 days till ultrasound
10 days till we thrash the Irish

Went to Jia & Lou's house for another Christmas bash last night. Going to leave work shortly and go shopping.

Been listening to Chris Moyles on Radio 1 on my new Sirius satellite radio and he's been playing lots of Bing, so I'm truly in a festive mood!

Record Cold in Ohio

5 days till Christmas
8 days till our next ultrasound
13 days till we beat Notre Dame

Here's a picture of Cody looking rather guilty after being caught under the tree sniffing for his presents.
It's the 4th coldest December on record in Ohio and the heat has broken down in my office at work, so may have to bugger off home shortly........

Christmas is Coming

Only 6 days till Christmas! Chrissy tree is up and presents been shipped off to England. Got the turkey & even found a Birds Trifle - yummy.
It's been snowing off & on for a few weeks now and feeling very festive. It's also bloody cold though & forecast for 7ºF (-14ºC) tonight. This picture was taken last night when we got back from Char & Jan's party.

Visit from Denmark


Just had our big turf conference in Columbus. One of the speakers, Chris, is a friend from Preston that now looks after Denmark's national stadium pitch. It was great to see him & hear a bit of northern humour.

Our Baby

Here's our first ultrasound from today.
Baby is 9mm long and already looks like Winston Churchill.
Next one is December 29th when we should be able to hear the heart beat.

Got tickets for Mad Richard


6 weeks & 5 days preggers
How wonderful ~ Craig's got us tickets to go & see Coldplay next March in Cleveland. Not too bothered about seeing them again but Richard Ashcroft is supporting them!! He's my musical hero so I'm chuffed.
Still got no morning sickness or anything. Going for our first ultrasound tomorrow and very excited...

Victorious Buckeyes

Had a party Saturday for the OSU:Michigan Game. We won 25-21 - Hurrah! We beat those northern scum again. Char & Jan, Eric & Dave, Todd & Kellie & Hannah, and Mike & Sue & Maura and Annette (think that's it) all came over. Eric gave me a basball hat that lights up and flashed "OSU" - very cool.
Felt funny watching a football game and not drinking but I'm getting used to it.

What a fabulous end to the footy season.

BEAT Michigan week

5 weeks & 5 days Preggers.
Had no morning sickness yet. Bought "Hob Nobs" just in case I need dry tasteless bisuits before a good morning barf but not needed them yet.
It's currently raining cats and dogs and going to get cold & nasty as the week goes on.
It's a big football week here and we are all excited about the OSU:Michigan game this Saturday.
GO BUCKS!
