update...

It has been a while since I truly updated. A lot has happened in the last 2 months.

As you all know, Michael and I will be parents to a little boy in October. We have named him Caleb Michael. We chose Caleb because we both like the name, and also because of it's meaning. Caleb means faithful, which we feel is very important. We chose Michael for a middle name because of Caleb's daddy's name being Michael and because Michael was named after his favorite uncle that died when we were in college. It is so much fun to know that it is a boy. Now we talk about Caleb, and not "the baby" or "it." Here are some pics of the 3-D ultrasound we had May 13th to determine if Caleb was a he or a she. The 1st pic is a 3_d pic of Caleb. He is in the middle of the screen with his arm curved around his head. The 2nd pic is of Caleb's foot. This has become one of our favorites because it is so clear and you can see all 5 toes perfectly!! Enjoy!





The day after we found out that we were having a boy, we had a scare with the pregnancy. Without giving too much detail, I was put on bed rest on Thursday (the 15th) and we went to the doctor. At the doctor, they were worried I was developing something called marginal placenta previa, and they thought my cervix might be dilating. So, they sent me to a specialist Monday morning (the 19th). After 3 ultrasounds, and a doctor's visit they determined that I do not have the things my doctor was concerned about, and that Caleb is doing great. He is measuring right on track and we both are looking good. So, after a week of worrying all is good in the Anderson home. I go back to the regular OB on Tuesday for my 20 week checkup. Michael and I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers during that week. You have no idea how much we appreciate it! :)

That brings me to my next topic - as of today I am 20 weeks along and 1/2 way done with the pregnancy. That means only about 20 weeks until we get to meet Caleb. We CAN'T WAIT!! It seems like I was just telling people that we were expecting and now I am 1/2 way done. WOW! Some more exciting news...my cousin Michael Kelly and his wife Melinda are expecting their 2nd child October 5th. We found out this week that they are also having a boy, so Caleb will have a cousin the exact same age as him. So neat!
