here we go again!

well, here we are again taking pictures of my ever growing belly! i am oficially 12 weeks pregnant today and i'm actually feeling pretty good. i had a good week and a half, had a bad yesterday, but feel a lot better today. the only bad thing is that i have had to give up hot coffee in the morning. it's really sad, and because of it, i've had HORRIBLE headaches for a week and a half. so, if you think about it, pray that they stop. i would greatly appreciate it.

12 weeks pregnant! i can't believe that we're doing this already again! we will find out what we're having at the end of june/beginning of july. my friend, lisa, was out yard saleing one saturday morning and found the exact same bedding that dillon has for $25!!!!!!! can you believe that?!?!?! so, we have matching bedding for dillon and his little brother/sister. they will share a room for at least the first year or two...and if the baby is a boy, they'll share a room till they're 18 if it's up to me ;)

my days have been filled with this big 16.4 lb boy. if you remember from some previous posts of pictures, dillon had a red spot on his right cheek. we weren't sure what it was...the doctor said it wasn't exzema, but he thought it was a fungal infection. he gave us some medicine that didn't clear it dried it up and it scabbed over, but looked HORRIBLE!!!! so, we went back to the doctor on monday becuase he had another little spot coming up on the other side of his face. anyway, the doctor wasn't really sure what was going on, but suggested hydrocortizone cream all over and changing all of our detergents to the free of everything detergents and no smelly lotions for me. in just three days, dillon's face looks AMAZING!!!! you can't even see the spots on his face in the pics!!! also, he is pooping SO much better (for those of you that knew about our poop troubles). we are so thankful for that. it's amazing what makes you thankful when you're a parent ;)

i call this my sweet dillon picture. and that's what he is...a SWEETIE!!!! he is talking so much! he laughs at just about everything you say and is ALMOST rolling over from his back to front. he'll roll up on his side, lay there for a little while, then turn back over...maybe it will happen soon, but as my sister says, if you rush it, your days of sitting with your child are over! he has found his feet and plays with them all the time. his favorite words are "a-ba-ba-ba", "ma-ma-ma-ma" (but only when he's crying), squealing at the top of his lungs, and "a-ha-a-ha". it is so much fun to hear all his little sounds. and loud sounds! he is getting so big...i can't believe he'll be 6 months old next month!!!! you're pregnancy C-R-E-E-P-S by, and then their infanthood goes by so FAST!!!!!

this picture was taken this morning...pre getting ready...but i do LOVE this little boy! he is our pride and joy! i encourage you to look at our friends blog, william and glenna marshall. they just found out that they are adopting a child and he will be born in probably LESS than THREE WEEKS!!!!!!! holy cow!!!!! they never thought it would happen this fast (the adoption) and i am SO exciited for them...i can't wait to see a picture like this of glenna and her little boy ;). we love you, william and glenna!!
this is dillon's new "exer-saucer". it's actually his bumbo seat with some fun things attached to it. he LOVES it!!!

just in case you forgot what petey looked like ;)
we love you all...this post is mostly for aunt mel! i hope you enjoy the pics ;) it was so good seeing tessa on sunday...she's SO BIG!!! i can't wait to see the rest of the myatts in a few weeks!

Dear Dillon,
I could just eat you with a spoon! I want to pinch your little cheeks in the worst way. Could you BE any cuter?!?! I think not.

Janes--thanks for being SO excited for us!!!!!!! We are thrilled, to say the least.
I am NOT SLEEPING...haven't had a good night's sleep in over a week. A little stressed, you might say. I guess that's just getting me ready for late night feedings and such.

You look great!! I'm glad you're feeling a little better. But, that is SO sad about coffee...I guess that's one good thing about adoption (among other good things!): no morning sickness, no recovery time, no worrying about caffiene during pregnancy or during breastfeeding. All the coffee I want, all the time. Sorry for rubbing it in! ;)

Love you lots.

First I love all of the pictures of Dillon. I just want to see that boy! Second, you should try hot tea. It's a good substitute (even if it's caffeine-free). I hope your trip to OK soon goes well.
