Paxton's Christmas List

Another Christmas has passed, and a new year is upon us.  It's crazy to look back and think about all that's happened in one year's time.  Life can change so much in one year.  Let me tell you about what I realized as this year comes to an end...

Paxton is raking in presents as an unborn child.  I can only imagine what he will do as a living, breathing human being.  He got almost as many clothing items on Christmas as I have in my closet (If you can imagine that Caitlynne takes up more than her half of the closet).  Paxton got what he wanted this year.  He got his play yard, a stroller and car seat, clothes, books, movies and a mobile.  Everything that he asked for.

So here is his list for next year...
1. 63 inch flat screen
2. A spray in bed liner for a 2006 Silverado
3. An Armani Suit, 42 regular
4. Italian leather dress shoes, size 12
5. One of those remotes that turn on your lights, AC/heat, TV, and stereo

That should be enough to get you started. 

We found a new house.  We will be moving at the end of January.  We will be back in Edmond.  We will miss OKC. I just feel like the city is a better fit for us and we have really enjoyed living in it, but the house was a great deal so we couldn't pass is up.

The World's Biggest Cucumber

While reading through some baby development websites, I found an article that said that at 26 weeks Paxton is the the size of a cucumber.  He is 14 inches long and weighs 2.2 is that the size of a cucumber?  Two weeks ago he was the size of a Subway footlong and now he's a cucumber?  All I know for sure is that he is getting huge.  His kicks are way stronger than before and he goes from kicking me down by my left thigh to kicking me up by my rib cage on the right side.  I also think he was trying to bust out today.  I was sitting at work and just enjoying his movements when they suddenly got a lot stronger.  Looking down at my stomach, I could literally watch it move as he kicked.  It was the craziest thing.  It still is crazy to me that there's a tiny person in there. 

We are thinking about getting a 3D ultrasound.  They are pretty expensive, but since it has been a healthy pregnancy, it might be our last chance to see the little guy before he's born.  One of the facilities that we have looked into has a viewing room similar to a movie theater where friends/family can watch the ultrasound.  The ultrasound also lasts about 30 minutes which is a long time to get to spend watching him do whatever he does all day. 

I would also like to say that I'm pretty sure I have the best baby daddy in the world.  He has been so supportive throughout this whole pregnancy.  He has been at every single doctor's appointment with no complaints, he listens every single week when I tell him about all the amazing developments that Paxton is achieving, he talks to him, he gets excited every time he feels him move, and he was just as excited about registering as I was.  I could probably go on for about 14 more minutes but those are the highlights.  Basically I can't think of anything he could be doing better.

He has a name.  Paxton Mark Miller.  We were going to wait until after he was born, but what's the fun in that?  It's actually helped me stop calling him "it."  We were wanting a name that was not popular.  Paxton is pretty rare, but knowing our luck it will be the most popular name of 2012.  Until December, then the World is going to end.

I am getting pretty excited about this.  Today is 100 days until he's here.  Hopefully.  So everyday, it seems to get a little more real.  I have been able to feel him for a couple of weeks.  Right before we are going to bed, he starts flipping and kicking.  My favorite is when he kicks her in the bladder.

Paxton is getting a pretty hefty list at Target and Babies R Us.  I am left wondering what I can do to be eligible to sign up for a list of presents.  He's a brat.
