So I hardly write about me or Mikko but I figure this blog is a good way to journal as well.
Today was a frustrating day for me. I went to the hospital for the 4th time to get an ultrasound of the baby. The first time we went the baby's legs were crossed at the ankles. The tech was 95% sure is was a girl but said I could come back for a free sex check.

A couple of weeks later I went back for a check. They could not see anything, the umbilical cord was in between the legs. This tech tells me that she was 100% sure that her daughter was going to have a girl but upon delivery surprise it was a boy. So now I have no faith in the techs. They tell me to come back for another try.

So I go last week to the hospital and they could not fit me in and tell me that I need to call first. That was annoying cause the other tech tells me I can just drop by anytime and they should be able to fit me in.

OK so today I call and they are able to see me. I go in and again nothing, the baby's bum is too low down to my pelvis, they have me walk around drink some juice and they try having me move to my side to get a better look. But no luck. So I am tired of going over to the hospital and getting no results. I don't plan to go back for another look. It will just have to be a surprise. But I still think it may be a girl because she is not be very cooperative which sounds like a girl to me!

Tender Husband

I just have to write about Mikko and how tender he is and how I am glad I get to see that side of him sometimes.
So today at lunch I asked Kaleb if he would like to bless our lunch he said yes. So he did his best to repeat what I would say mostly just the last word I would say. It was really cute.
So when we sat down for dinner as a family I asked Kaleb if he would like to say the blessing. He said yes again. Mikko seemed a little surprised. Again he repeated what I said and after the prayer I looked over at Mikko and he had tears in his eyes. He told Kaleb how proud he was and of course I started to tear up as well.
It's just so nice to see and experience emotion and love in my husband. Most Finnish people do well at hiding there emotions but I am glad that Mikko is not afraid to show his. I love him so much.

He Means Business

We purchased Kaleb a new Sunday outfit and doesn't he look great. I told him I wanted to take a picture and put him on the couch and he did this pose for me even the hand in the pocket.
Turned out he was getting something out of the pocket. Anyway I think he is the cutest thing ever and it is so fun to watch his little personality or should I say BIG personality develop. We love this little man.

Must Be Finnish Blood

For Valentines day Kaleb played in the snow, it may be the Finnish blood in him and it may just be that he is a kid. He enjoyed playing in the snow the other day while Mikko cleared our driveway. The weather has been funny lately. It will snow melt all away and we see the green grass and then it snows again. Can't wait until spring and summer come!
