Wednesday night, We took Jon Harris to the Miley Cyrus concert. JH was so excited! I think he was overwhelmed by all the noise but he loved "Rockin Out." We had a blast! She put on a really great show but she only did 2 songs from the "Hannah Montana Movie". I could tell that Miley is definetly transitioning from the child/preteen Hannah Montana to a more mature audience! The concert was almost too old for Jon Harris. I guess she does have to grow up. It's sad because Jon Harris loves watching the show. Who knows- she has a little sister that might be "the next big thing."

Jon Harris is getting very excited about Nash! We signed him up for the "Big Brother" class at Methodist Germantown. They have a class for 2-6 years old and 7- 12 years old. He is going to the 7- 12 years old class. I hope it goes well. It sounds like it'll be fun! They have a birthday party for the baby, show them how to change a diaper:), and take them on a tour of the hospital. The only thing I worry about is the video they show of the birth. It is not supposed to be graphic but still..... He already has lots of questions ( like "How is he coming out?")! I have said before that he is a very SMART kid- I have to give him a logical answer. Besides, I'd rather be honest with him. I have been praying that God gives me the right words to say! ( and he will!)
My last doctor's appointment went well. They did an ultrasound and my placenta has moved out of the way- thank goodness! Nash seemed to be doing great! He has definetly grown since we saw him at 18 weeks. I can't wait to see his sweet face! -I am definetly getting bigger... Fun fun. So far, I feel great. I know those days will soon come to an end. ( I hope not) I am now feeling hiccups and LOTS of movement especially when I lay down for the night.

We have about 11 weeks left before we meet our sweet baby Nash! My consultant, Sarah- hehe, told me that I have got to get on the ball! She keeps me on task! So, we started the nursery Friday. Thanks to Sarah, Ryan, and my mom, we got most of it finished. We still have so much to get- rocker, dresser, etc... But at least we have a start now. We painted the room blue, put up bead board, and a chair rail. We got the crib, mattress, and bedding. Oh yea! And put in a closet organizer. We had a pretty full weekend! We just can't wait to have Nash in his new bedroom!

Jon Harris's turning 7 years old!! I can't believe how fast he has grown! These past 7 years have definetly been the best years of my life. Nothing beats being a mom. He has been my greatest accomplishment! (Nash, too!)
Steve, "M-Ashley," "Bo-Daddy," and I threw Jon Harris a birthday party at Pump-It-Up. That is the best place ever! They took care of everything- we got to sit back and enjoy. I think the adults had just as much fun as the kids. We had a good mixture there.... we had friends from Covington and Cordova attend. Thanks to all our friends and family for coming- you helped make Jon Harris's birthday very special!

Where did the last year go? It seems like yesterday Bo and I were walking Jon Harris into his classroom for the first day of Kindergarten. Today we walked him into the classroom for his first day of First Grade. I can't get over how fast he has grown! Before long he will be begging me not to walk him in school, hold his hand, or kiss him in public. I dread it!

This past Saturday the weather was so beautiful! We decided to go to the zoo (we love having a zoo membership.) One of our favorites was feeding the birds in the new "Birds and Bees" exhibit. Jon Harris loved it! Our other favorite at the zoo was the monkeys (of coarse.)
I think all the animals had a little pep in their step because the weather was so perfect! If you haven't been to the Memphis Zoo lately, you should go...... They got voted #1 zoo in the country.
It was friggin' amazing to see what all they can do with the ultrasound machine. Not too suprisingly, they can record everything on a DVD-RW. Not a DVD-R. Which, by the way, is what I brought for us to record the event onto. So we had to buy one there. But it was a small price to pay for what we got in return. This thing has some amazing resolution, I think. But I don't know much about birthin' no babies. Thanks to my friend Brian at work I was able to rip the files off the DVD and thought this would be a good place to post them in case anyone wanted to see them. So, on with the show:
This is the first one of four. In it, he's blowing a smoke ring. Weird, right?
Number two. In this he looks like the Terminator. You can see the lens of his eye. Just like the T-1000. Nash is already cool. Or a nerd. Maybe a cool nerd.
Number 3: really cool. I mean, this is really amazing to anyone interested in pumping technology. The technician was able to move this little cursor around into the different chambers of the heart and listen to each section. I mean, you can tell the difference in the positive-pressure chambers and the negative-pressure chambers. Awesome! Also you can see something they do where they "view" the cord's flow and stuff. Really amazing to me. Also really makes me wonder sometime how people think all this stuff happens without an "intelligent designer." A really intelligent designer...
Finally, number 4. This is the one where we finally saw that he is a BOY. Sweet! Also of note to my engineering brain is that his femur was exactly 2.53 cm. That is almost exactly an inch (2.54 cm). So the biggest bone in his body is about the size of one of the little bones in my finger. That really helped me with perspective. I know we're a little late in posting this (we got the news about 2 weeks ago), but now he's 12 ounces and about 10-1/2 in tall. If only i could think of a reference item that is 12 ounces and about 10 inches tall...Anyways, here's the last video:
I guess that's it for now. I tried to get some annotations onto the videos but it was kinda dragging, so I figured we'd just post them for now and let anyone see them that wants to do so. Finally, one cool thing is that for the future ultrasounds, they can just burn them all to the same DVD. Sweet.

Jon Harris is getting excited about being a big brother soon. (He says that he can't wait to teach the baby to work a remote for the T.V.) While he was gone to his dad's house, we thought it would be fun to surprise him with a new bedroom. We moved his room in the office so we can put the baby in his old room. (His old room is closer to our bedroom and we thought there would be less disturbances for Jon Harris if the baby was in there. ) He was so surprised! We painted and bought him a new desk and chair. It was so much fun!
We had a doctor's appointment Wednesday. We got the big ultrasound- they were able to see all 4 chambers of the heart, measure his brain, and all kinds of neat things. You could even see the lens in his eyes! It is so amazing how far technology has come just since I had Jon Harris in 2002. We were able to get Nash on DVD. We can't wait to show our family!
The doctor told me that I am not on anymore restrictions- Yayyhh! I am so happy about that! She had me on several restrictions 4 weeks ago and we didn't know how long they would last. I am so relieved.

My boys!! What can I say? I am so lucky! These two are "two peas in a pod." They have been so much fun to watch this past year. Their relationship gets stronger everyday! Jon Harris is crazy about his "Bo-daddy." God has blessed us with such a wonderful man! Bo would never try to take the place of his dad but how lucky is Jon Harris to have 2 men in his life that love him very much!
