Project Life Week 9

I'm having trouble remembering to take picutres. Trying to feel good enough to get things done when I can has been my focus. Now that I'm starting to feel better I hope I'll do better!

Ella had Mickey and Minnie join her to watch their show. She's so funny
Laci's school had spirit week. This is the getup she chose for pajama day. Note the pajama pants to another set of pj's and of course the cowGIRL boots. She will not hear them called cowboy boots. I think she's worn them to school daily since this. I hate cow boots boy or girl :D
This is Hillbilly day. She just looks like Hannah Montana lol. She's wearing my shirt (its miley cyrus ha so maybe that's why). She's a cute hill person.
The girls playing Wii Princess. Ella loves it-obviously.
I had a nuchal translucency test on Thursday. It combines a measuring of the fluid in the baby's neck w/blood serum results to give you a ration on your risk for different genetic problems, the main one being Down's Syndrome. The neck reading was very low which is good, haven't heard back on the blood yet. The baby wouldn't cooperate I had to keep rolling around on the table trying to get into the exact position. It also was doing reverse crunches the whole time and was really kicking at one point. It was funny b/c the legs are usually bunched up at this point so it was neat to see it all stretched out and all the tiny individual bones in the legs and feet. How people can say they aren't really babies or life.....
Here's the face. Not the most flattering shot and kind of scary actually! It does have a nose. On the profile we could really see it which was important because that is a soft marker for down's syndrome if they don't have a visible tip. We had to redo the ultrasound actually because the tech hadn't gotten a clear enough picture of the nose! We saw the baby for almost an hour I'd say. I didn't feel I needed it as far as my age and risk factor. It was just another chance for an ultrasound so I scheduled the test ;D
My sleepy ballerina. She doesn't sleep peacefully despite what this picture depicts.

Potty training! Here she is after a successful attempt holding her starchart in her potty book. She has 3 stars. One a week. At this rate we'll be trained by second grade.
