Our announcement card...

Here is a picture of the card I designed to send out to people to announce the new baby!

We really, really want to tell.

OK, so yesterday we came sooo.... close to telling everyone! I think its just making it harder because now we have a picture of the little peanut. We really want to tell, but then again we really want to keep it a secret... who knows what'll happen...

Good news, we only have 2 1/2 months left until we find out what we are having. 10 weeks!! Yippee! :)

Our little animal lover...Poor kitten!


OK, so Sunday we went to my lovely mother-n-laws house to visit with the family... Rachel, Adam, and the kiddos were down, so I got to spend time with my favorite nieces...and I was in the living room with all the kiddos and physic Robin and I said to her" I don't know why, but these kids are driving me crazy today". She said, " your pregnant!" It seriously took all I had not to crack up laughing! So, I said "nope, impossible, I just had my period!"(I'm such a good liar hehe) So, after the feeling of a heart attack passed, I was wondering .... does this crazy woman know?.. Do I have the pregnant glow?, I mean, I know I was having a great hair day, but I had no idea people would be able to tell just because I was looking especially good, they should be use to it by now.:) OR had she stumbled across my blog!?..........nah.

First doctor visit..

OK, yesterday I finally went to the doctor. Everything went great! I am 8 weeks and 4 days along. I've decided this pregnancy to use doctor Wachter(sp?) and he is very nice. He even said since I had a c-section last time, I can have another one!! Whoo hoo!!:) AND he said he does all of the c sections 1 week early!! Even better! Also they calculated my due date is December 26Th! A Christmas baby! :) So, if we have it 1 wk early we'll have it on the 19, which is Troy's birthday. So, that means we wouldn't have to buy him a present..ha!jk.. My next appointment is next Thursday and we'll get our first ultrasound!! :)So we're super-duper excited about that!:)

Well 3 mths to go till we tell everyone!

This is really tough.

The attack of the super cravings!

Ok, so with Rilyn I really didn't have any cravings.... I just had some serious heartburn. Well, at 3:00 this morning I woke up, wide awake and hungry! And I was craving PICKLES, a pickle sandwich to be exact! So, I made me a pickle and mustard sandwich! And it was deliciouso!! Man, I'm going to start eating those everyday!! :)

So, 2 months and 1 day and still a secret!! HA!

Tadpole's name!

Josh is finally seeing it MY way, like he's suppose to! And he said he likes the name Ryker for a boy!! (Its not like he even really had a choice, but sometimes I let him think he does..hehe:)) So it is decided, if tadpole is a girl: Raleigh Elise Long and if it is a boy, Ryker Dee Long!!

Who knows?... Maybe theres one of both in there! LOL :)

Lets hope not, though!!

Morning sickness ALL dang day!

Well, it seems tadpole is going to be just like Rilyn and make me nauseated and give me indigestion EVERY TIME we eat! (Just another sign that it is a girl:)) Today, I ate breakfast... heartburn... ate lunch ...... and more heart burn followed by a side of indigestion. Sounds delicious, doesn't it?... I guess the only, and I mean only, good part about getting sick when you eat is that you cant, eat and eat and eat! Which means hopefully by the end of my pregnancy I wont look like I'm pregnant with octuplets. :-D SO ... me and tadpole went to walmart and bought tums and they are helping a little..... 13 wks to go until tadpole is revealed!

Wednesday, May 6, 2009 predicts we're having a GIRL!! :)

So, last time I was pregnant with my Rilyn told us we were having a GIRL and this time he said the same thing!! :) Of course Ibelieve him!! But we will still wait for the sonogram to make sure!! My son doesn't wear pink.
Only 13 weeks and 5 days..... (sigh...) This is the worst part of pregnancy because I don't like surprises!! I want to know NOW what we're having. Who knows...maybe I'll go talk to a psychic. :)

Tough day...

So this morning at about 2:30 my Ribear woke up crying, and running 102 fever! So this morning I decided to take her to the doctor, with this swine flu junk, it was making me worry! So we went to the doctor.... well, we all know how Rilyn LOVES the doctor (not) Thank god that it turned out to just be an infection in her throat and not the swine flu!! My Lil punkin' feels super bad so I guess I'll have to pick her up a special surprise on my way home today. And on top of everything else today, after breakfast I started feeling sooooo sick! And my mom was right there! All I could do was pray that I didn't barf in front of my mom.... she would of know right away! She has a sense about this kind of stuff! Heck, she prolly already knows!

But we do have some good news! Rilyn has been peeing in her potty!! And yesterday she told us she had to go potty and she pooped in her potty!! She is getting to be such a big girl! :) Pretty soon no diapers! Our goal is to get her potty trained before the next one! So far its going great. She absolutely loves to potty in her potty! :)

That's my big girl :)

Well 13 weeks and 5 days to go.........(before we break the news):)

"When I asked for a daughter...I was sent a princess." ~Unknown


Well, here's the first picture of baby long! jk...But this is suppose to be what he/she looks like right now. I just calculated online how far along we are.... 6 week and 1 day! Further along than I though, which is good. :) And our estimated due date is December 30Th. Wouldn't it be cool if we had a new years baby ? :) Here a little more information about baby long:
Your Baby's Development
By week 6, your baby’s brain and nervous system are developing at a rapid pace. Optic vesicles, which later form the eyes, begin to develop this week on the sides of the head, as do the passageways that will make up the inner ear.
Your baby's heart will begin to beat around this time, and it may even be detected on ultrasound examination. And the beginnings of the digestive and respiratory systems are forming, too. Small buds that will grow into your baby's arms and legs also appear this week.
Because their legs are curled up against the torso for much of the pregnancy, making a full-length measurement difficult, babies often are measured from the crown to rump rather than from head to toe. This week, your baby only measures 0.08 to 0.2 inches (2 to 5 millimeters) from crown to rump!
Cool, so basically we have a tadpole right now!:)
It seems this is getting harder and harder to keep a secret.... I thought this would make it easier, but it doesn't. I'm dying to tell a real life person! Oh well, we will see how long this secret will stay a secret... our goal is to week 20!! So 13 weeks and 6 days to go.....
Man this is going to be tough.

Ok, so I guess I'm becoming a little obsessed with this blog thing.... 3 in one day! Wow, I'm a blogging machine! After this, I really do actually have to work, for once. :)

So, I know its early but we are already arguing about a name! Although josh cant come up with any names (besides, jawanaman, and that just cracked him up!) , he hates the names I pick..... We already have a girls name picked : Raleigh Elise Long :) Pretty huh?... But we are in a feud about a boy name! (Lets just hope its a girl:)) I loooove Ryker for a boy.. and I'm hoping it will grow on josh. :) I also like Rory too. He wants the middle name to be Dee... so its only fair if he picks the middle name I get to pick the first name, right?....Of course I will get to fill out the birth certificate sooo... it is ultimately up to me :) I just dont want joshy to throw a mantrum in the hospital! So, for now, until josh can help me come up with a name... it will be Ryker. :)Ssssh! dont tell him! :)

Our Little Beauty Queen!

Well this year is flying by.

We have one more pageant this year to do then I guess Rilyn can relax. :) Actually believe it or not she loves doing pageants. When she gets on stage... she is a HAM! Smiling, blowing kisses, waving.... she loves the attention! So far she has 11 trophies, 5 crowns, and too many sashes! A couple of the trophies are taller than her! I guess we need to get with Paul about adding on a trophy room.


Anyway, we have one more pageant in June. I'm sort of happy, because they cost! We could of paid for her college by now! J/K... As long as she has a good time and enjoys the pageants we will continue to do them! And no matter what Mr Joshua Ronald Long says, he likes them too. I think he gets more excited about her winning than anyone of us! The first 3 pageants she placed first runner up, (2ND place) good, huh?...

Nope, daddy was heart-broken! Of course HIS little girl should of won..... he told me I need to work with her more! How do you work with a 1 yr old?... So, I told him if we have a boy next him and Ryker ( I like that name, Josh HATES it.) can just stay at home and do boys stuff... he said 'no, I'm not missing any of Rilyn's pageants'... So, guys I think we have a pageant dad on our hands. lol.. Hes adorable.

Nothin' says lovin' like a bun in the oven!

Well we just found out that we are expecting numero dos! And while we are super-duper excited, I think its making us more excited because we've decided not to tell anyone! HaHa! :) So, Ive decide to blog about it. (I just have to tell someone) We've only known for about a week and we are dying to TELL! This is going to be a long hard journey (keeping our mouths shut) But I think we can do it. I've threatened joshua with a vasectomy if he opens his big mouth... because he is already hinting! We are thinking, that if everything goes as planned that we will tell everyone when we find out the sex of the baby! 5months! So, lets hope I dont blow up like a fish! Heres the plan..... once we find out the sex we are going to send everyone a babyshower invitation in the mail!! (ofcourse we will hand deliver our parents one first) Im too young to die. Then we can wait, for our phones begin to BLOW up!:) I know, I know.... cruel... but just think, this is for the best of everyone, trust me. It will make it fly by sooooo much faster. :)
