Get out and vote

I have added a poll on the blog for you to vote on a name for Baby Fuersich. There are no guarantees we are going with one of these, I just thought it would be fun to see what your thoughts were. We think his middle name might be Michael (Dave's middle name), but that could change too. There are a couple of funny ones added in that we are currently calling the baby but I can tell you they are definitely not in consideration. If anyone has any other ideas feel free to pass them along, but don't be offended if we do not choose your idea.

Pictures as Promised

We had a couple of eventful weekends, last weekend my mom and dad, Stacy and Emerson came for a visit for a few days. It was definitely a good time. Emerson kept us all entertained. He definitely goes and goes. I was a little worried how Titan and Emerson would get along. If Titan couldn't behave he was going to have to spend much of the time in his crate....

Titan behaved very well but by Sunday Emerson was tired of him licking him in the face all the time (they are about eye level with each other), so I think Emerson was looking for somewhere to get away from Titan.

One of the girls from work sent some fun toys home with me for Emerson to play with. He did very well on this little four wheeler. He drove all over the yard. He also had a little slide to play on. He tried to go head first a few times but liked it alot. (You can sneak a peek of Stacy's belly in this pic.)
Here are some pictures of my belly. It has grown quite quickly. Total strangers are now comfortable asking me when I am due. This was at about 17 weeks.

And this was around 20-21 weeks.

Here are the ultrasound pics. The first one was from 16 weeks and the other 5 are from 20 weeks.

The last one says "It's a boy!" We are still working on a name but I think we may be able to come to an agreement.

We're Still Here

Sorry it has been so long since I have updated the blog. We have been very busy. Nothing too exciting. We have both been working alot. It keeps us nice and tired, so we haven't had much time for other things.

We did have our big ultrasound last week and found out that we are having a boy!!! We are both excited about that but don't have any ideas on a name. I think it will be a while before we come to a name we both like. I am definitely feeling the baby move now. Today I felt him quite a bit, so I think we are going to have a very busy baby. Hopefully he doesn't keep me awake too much before he gets here, because I am sure he will do that plenty when he does get here. I am definitely showing now. Strangers are now asking about the baby, so I guess I don't look like I ate too many doughnuts anymore. We are just beginning to get some baby things together. I bought one little outfit, we got a box of baby stuff from my mom and dad and Dave's mom and dad got his first Cubs shirt and a pair of Cincinnati Reds socks. We also purchased a dresser from an online auction for a great deal.

Gas prices are really impacting us here. I am sure we are paying the same as everyone else but we both drive so far to work. My commute is about 80 miles round trip and Dave's is about 90 miles. Last month Dave spent $600 in fuel for the truck. So last week we bought a new car. A Honda Accord. This is my new car and Dave is driving the Impala to work. We are going to keep the truck for awhile and see if he is going to need it over the winter for plowing or just getting to work.

Titan is enjoying his Invisible Fence. He gets to run and play so much now since he can go anywhere in the yard. He still is not 100% proficient is staying where he should, so he has gotten zapped a few times. This morning he chased a deer across the backyard and stopped before he was zapped, which was a good sign.

My parents came for a visit over the weekend. It was definitely nice to see them, but we are looking forward to this coming weekend also. They will be making another stop on their way back from visiting Stacy and they will be bringing Stacy and Emerson back with them. We haven't seen them since Thanksgiving. From what I hear he has changed alot since then.

Check back in a few days. I will try to post some pictures.
