Baby Registry

At the request of several people, we have finally started our baby registry. It is at Babies R Us, and can also be viewed and/or items purchased at Toys R Us. We have cards to hand out that will make it easier for anyone to find our registry if they go to the store in person, the registry can also be viewed online at . Obviously we have not yet added bedding or clothing, we are going to be adding those to the registry sometime in mid to late July after we know the sex of the baby! :) Hope everyone is well.

First Ultrasound

So yesterday Cyndi and I had our first trimester ultrasound appointment, which is used to mostly make sure everything is running smoothly and check for any possibility of Down's syndrome. Here are some of the photo's taken!

The ultrasound went well, and at times the baby appeared to wave at us. Unfortunately, it is still too early to determine the sex of our baby. We should know at our next ultrasound in July. The other good news is that they were able to successfully draw blood from Cyndi without her passing out.

Hope all is well from everybody, you'll be hearing from us soon about the baby registry!

We saw the baby!

Today was our first "real" doctor's appointment. I made it through this appointment without almost passing out, so that alone was a success! The appointment was actually really quick. Just talked to the doctor for a few minutes then she said she would try to find the heartbeat and if she couldn't she'd actually look for the baby. She couldn't hear the heartbeat (apparently the baby was too small and my stomach was too loud), so we got an "unofficial" ultrasound. Sure enough, she found the baby real fast and Baby Dickinson was moving around. Everything is looking good. Next appointment is June 3.

In other news... a Portland Police Officer died last night. He worked Kevin's shift, so Kevin knew him pretty well. Apparently, he accidentally discharged his weapon at home. He had two young kids (9 and 12). Please keep his family and the police department in your prayers.
