Has it already been 3 years!?!?!

Last night Chad and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary. It has gone by so fast! We made it simple... dinner and a movie. We are about to go on vacation to Florida with my family and then in June we are going to Washington D.C. for an anniversary/babymoon trip. So, that is our anniversary present to each other. Here are some pics of the evening.

3 Years!!!
He brought home roses for me!!

Baby update: We went to the doctor last Tuesday for my 24 week appointment and everything still looks good. I really don't have anything to compare Cohen to since he is my first, but I feel like he's the most active baby ever! He never stops kicking and punching! Uh Oh.... I hope that doesn't mean anything!

And his name is....

COHEN DAVID LAWSON. It means "beloved priest" in Hebrew. David is Chad's middle name also. Chad and I had been going back and forth on the names and really this is the one we have liked the best for a while, but I was waiting to get the final approval from Chad since he is the picky one. Then on Mother's Day I woke up to a card that said "mom, thanks for letting me kick and punch you in the tummy all the time. you're the best mom! Love, Cohen" So, that was my mother's day gift... his name. (plus a Starbucks gift card, I might add. Cohen already knows how to make his mommy happy!) I enjoyed yesterday knowing that this would be my easiest mother's day ever, at least until the kids are grown and out of the house!
Update... right now he is about 11 1/2 inches long and weighs a little over a pound.

Belly Button...

Ok, I've been accused for not posting more often. But really there's not a lot to write about! We still don't have a name, but I think we are getting really close to deciding. I'll let ya'll know as soon as we make a decision. I am feeling him move all the time now. I have this new trick... when I start singing he calms down and quits kicking! So, I think while he's in my tummy I'm going to sing this same song every time I want him to calm down, and maybe when I sing that same song once he gets here it will work then too! I'll let you know how that theory holds up. Oh yeah, about the belly button. It popped out this last week. Belly buttons are wierd aren't they?

Here are some pics of me and some of my college friends. We had Macy's baby shower at my house this weekend. She is about nine weeks ahead of me and is due on July 5th.

Me and Macy...
