8th Month

30" long; 21 pounds
You scoot around on your stomach now.  You like to jump up and down in the Super Saucer.  you can wave "hi" and "bye".  You went to Trader's World (Flea Market) and slept the whole time.  You have begun to play shy and cry whenever mommy and daddy leave for a few minutes, (however, you don't cry when I drop you off at the babysitter's house in the morning).  You got another hair cut, it made you look a lot older.  And boy do you laugh!  Daddy started looking for a new job.  (not hard, but working with a headhunter)  You had to get your left eye "probed".  You've had a problem with your eye matting up since you were born.  The Dr. said that there was a blockage in your tear duct.  When he examined you, he told us you had 20/20 vision.

Pregnancy Journal...#1

Kevin and I went to the doctor's office today for an ultrasound.  They videotaped the whole thing.  Even though the baby didn't cooperate with the ultrasound tech.  We did find out that we are having a BOY!!  (Even if we didn't want to know, it would have been very difficult for the tech to hide what we saw). She also said that everything looks healthy and if there were any problems Dr. Guy would be calling before my next visit to the doctors.  My next appointment is when they do that 1 hour glucose screening (I'm really NOT looking forward to this!!)
