It's a boy...

Baby Milhizer looking up, just hanging out.

This is a picture of his arm crossed over his chest.

This is one of the 4D pictures of his face. The right side of the picture if his face. The left shows the umbilical cord.

What a beautiful profile...

Yesterday was our 20 week ultrasound and hands down this was the coolest experience we have shared. Immediately, the sonogram technician asked us if we wanted to know the sex. Seems the little guy isn't shy about showing his stuff. We watched him move around as she checked every vital organ, limb and feature. I know it's hard to tell, but our boy is beautiful! He's even a little stubborn. He moved when he wanted to move, not necessarily when or how the sonogram technician wanted him to. The doctor followed up and made sure that everything was measuring as it should be and it was all "beautiful" and "perfect."

The best part was watching the baby move. At one point his mouth was opening and closing as if he was telling us to stop poking at him. Then he sucked his thumb and kept covering his face when the doctor was trying to get a good 4D image of his little face.

It is just so amazing to see what has developed and how he looks like a baby now. He is weighing 12oz. and is 8 inches long. They projected my due date might be a little earlier, more like April 7th, but my doctor will confirm at my next visit on December 2nd. I think we may have a big boy!

BC vs Clemson

This weekend Kim came into town and we headed up to Boston to see some BC friends and catch the BC/Clemson game. It was great to be in Boston again. I forget how much I love it until we go back and I am reminded of the architecture, history and Bob's connection to the city. It was fun to hear the "Bob Milhizer Tour of Boston" again. Since it's been 10 years since Kim had been in Boston, he felt the need to make sure she was given every bit of information he had and his connection to it. His time at Boston College was very important to him and it's always nice to get to see him back in that element. Now, if the team could have only won.

The game was a bit of a roller coaster. BC was down 17-7 at halftime and then came back and was leading in the 4th quarter 21 t0 17. Unfortunately, there was too much time left and Clemson came back and won.

These pictures are horrible of us, but it was fun!

Bob was seriously watching the game. He gets into the zone and you better watch out!

Saylor Time...

I just spent an incredible weekend away from the city in Dallas, TX. I went to visit Amanda and her new baby girl, Saylor. It was great to see Amanda doing so well, see her parents and get to meet her amazing baby. Saylor is 3 months old and is really showing her personality. I think my favorite thing is the sound she has learned to make with her mouth. She is a happy and healthy baby and BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

Our Two Year Anniversary

Yesterday was our two year anniversary. My amazing husband surprised me with a wonderful day on Sunday of apple picking in the Hudson Valley. I love the fall more than any other season and to experience fall foliage in this region is absolutely amazing. I have seen beautiful leaves before, but nothing like this. It truly was the most beautiful day I have ever had. Unfortunately, the trees were seen from the car so I have no pictures to prove what I am saying. We did take a picture or two at the apple orchard, which was beautiful as well. It's crazy that an hour and a half outside of New York City we were in the country picking our own apples.

On the actual day of our anniversary we went to dinner. Bob surprised me (again) with a trip to Brooklyn to have dinner at the River Cafe. This gorgeous restaurant sits on the East River across from Manhattan so you sit at your table looking at the skyline of the lower half of Manhattan.

Facebook Smacebook...

So I decided that I don't really like Facebook. I get that many people do and that it is fun at first catching up with people and seeing where people ended up. After awhile you have probably found who you wanted to and then you start getting surprised by who finds you. There is probably a reason we lost touch in the first place and now I have created a blog so that the people I want to know about my life can know about my life.
The main reason for this blog is I live in New York City and our family and our best friends live in Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago and Boston and other cities across the country. I wanted an easy way to keep everyone updated on our life and our upcoming bundle of joy. So, enjoy the mania....
