Whoa my Mary Janes....

" When I wear my Mary Jane shoes, I can escape from the blues, the whole world seems a little bit brighter, brighter, brighter, My heavy steps get a little bit lighter, lighter. I'm just like a child in underoos, from my heart, to my soles, I feel like I am seven, from my head to my toes it's like I'm in heaven, Whoa my Mary Janes, Whoa my Mary Janes, Whoa my Mary Janes, Whoa my Mary Janes. Whoa now, Whoa now. When ever I wear my Mary Jane shoes, I enjoy to spin the ones and twos, music has another dimension, and I dance with a different perception, whoa my Mary Janes, Whoa my Mary Janes." Song sung to the tune of "No woman no cry" ~ Bob Marley

Love that song by Fergie, When I heard it for the first time months ago I Screamed and then thought AMAZING! Another person just as in love with Mary Janes as I am and there is an AWESOME song (lol it's one of my phone ring tones)! I Have had the love of "Mary Janes" since I was a little girl. No kidding I have pictures of me at least 4 years old in them :) (maybe I will post one lol). Growing up I had lots of different pairs, When we go into San Francisco I have to hit up China Town and pick up a pair of the "old school" Mary Janes, this has become a tradition for me (some of mine are plain, some have flowers, one pair even has cherries lol, I even have a few pair of dressy heel Mary Janes) LOVE THEM!

One name brand company that I have come to LOVE for new style MJ's is "Keen" though they can be a bit to pricey lol, they have AWESOME shoes! I love their Seattle, Berkeley, Calistoga, Malibu, Selway, Humboldt and Chelsea's to name a few LOL. Here is what a few of my favorites look like, and YES I love all the different colors too :) lol

Our second 3D-4D ultrasound

We had our second 3D-4D Ultrasound yesterday. This time my MIL was able to make it there with us which was so great! The session was a little over an hour (I was so surprised and happy, it is such a wonderful place and he was so sweet to work with us and Miss. Adriana again lol.) She of course again was playing the "hide my face game", she will show us all her "Girlie Parts" but not her face, it so cute! We spent MOST of the hour trying all kinds of different ways to get her to move. He had me turn to my sides, cough alot, and a couple times I had to march around the office lol and down the hallway. About 10 minutes to 3:00pm (we had our appointment at 2:00pm) he was about to give up on her ever showing her face, she just loves to have her hands on it and lol even sometimes she will have her feet up near her face (a few times she was sucking on her fingers and toes (we got this all on DVD). I wanted to try something we do at home at night when I am laying in bed, I will have Dustin or one of the boys talk to my tummy. She often moves when we do this. It was amazing to actually get to see her re-act to it this time though. So there I was laying on the bed, and I had Aidan ask her to please move her hands from her face so we can see her, I kid you not (lol again it's all on DVD lol) the second he started talking to her she moved her hands. Aidan kept saying things to her and finally just started singing it to her LOL (He does this all the time, he will sing about what he is doing) By him doing this we were able to get a few shots of her with no hands in her face and a few with just her hands at her lips but we could see most of her face. I CAN NOT believe how much she looks like her brother Austin (lol I know that sounds nuts, BUT I swear just look at these pictures, I should post a profile picture of Austin when he was born and you will see what I mean lol).

Altogether this was another amazing visit. I am so glad we decided to get these 3D-4D Ultrasounds done this time around. This will be our last baby so it makes it extra special for us. We got a few of the 2D ultrasounds done with the boys and all the ones I got each visit to my doctor's office this time around with Adriana, but this was something so different from those, so special for us all, it made it 100 times better have the boys old enough to understand what was going on and what we were all experiencing. I will share the pictures at the end of this blog :)

WHEW, Can I breath now lol, I can not believe I actually have some free time this month LOL, so much has been going on, BUSY BUSY BUSY! This month (so far) has the most stuff written on the calendar for things to do, and this coming week will be the one week where there is a bunch of things going on each day. I have school exams next week, work, appointments, an in office Dr.s Ultrasound where they check baby measurements, Austin's school has stuff going on, Austin's birthday party at Chuck E cheese's, and the list goes on and on. LOL Are you tired from just reading all that? This weekend I was hoping to take it easy, but there are so many things around the house to do plus I have homework and should be studying for my exams next week. I also need to list some eBay auctions and get a little "ME TIME" scrapbooking in somewhere ;)

Okay well I better get the kitchen straighten up and then I am going to take a much needed nap :)

Here are two of the first 3D-4D ultrasound pictures I took at 22/23 weeks, as you can tell Adriana was still very skinny so she looks a little bony/skeleton like.
