Bowling Anyone????

We took Alexis bowling with her cousins the other day and had a blast. She seemed to catch on pretty quick. Alexis was able to get the ball all the way down the lane without too much trouble. There were times however when we didn't think her ball would make it all the way down the lane but after long periods of waiting, her ball did make its way down without a problem. Whoever invented bumpers is a genius. I remember when I was a kid and they used to put actual tubes in the lane. Now a days they just lift up these rails and there you go, "bumpers". I'd like to think that my scores wern't influenced by the bumpers but I'd be lying if I said I didn't take advantage of them once in a while. Anyway here are a few pictures of our day.

Look at that form! Wow!

You mean I'm supposd to watch my ball too???

First Appointment

Well I had my first doctor appointment today. It seems like so long ago when I had to do this the first time. Everything is going well. I was able to hear the heartbeat today which I find pretty exciting. I have read what they say about the heart rate and by the "sounds" of things, I feel as though I'll be having another girl. I know you can't believe all those old wives tales but they were right last time. This time she said it was around 167 which seems so fast. Time will tell and since I'm not very patient I will have to find out what I'm having as soon as I am able. After my appointment I had to run down to the lab and give about a third of my blood. Why on earth do they need so much stinking blood. I felt like I was going to pass out just watching them. I would think by now I would be a little better at this whole giving blood thing. Anyway, just trying to take it easy and stay "warm" these days. I'll continue to keep everyone posted. Oh and I'll try to keep up with the "belly pictures" Candace. I'm not sure that I want to remember those though.

Alexis's Big News!!!!

Well I thought I would update everyone on the newest happenings in the Titas family. Alexis has decided that being a big sister would be the best thing ever so.......on Christmas morning we told her the news. We are expecting baby number two sometime this summer. Alexis has been so excited lately talking about how she's going to feed the baby and change the baby. I think that four will be a good age when she can actually be helpful. I really thought we were going to be parents of one forever but we were lucky enough to be able to grow as a family. I will keep everyone updated on the progress of baby Titas. As for now, I'm feeling pretty good. Not sick at all really which makes me very happy. I'm getting to that "fat" stage now where I'm not quite showing yet but my clothes are feeling a little tighter than before. It could be all the desserts I've been eating though too. Anyway, the due date is August 7th or so. It will be nice to have some time off in the summer when it's actually warm and I can do stuff outside. I will be sure to keep everyone posted.
