Biffanno's Freakout

Here is a short 30 second commercial I put together for Josh's youth event coming up called Biffanno's. It's where the youth turn the church into an Italian restaurant and serve the congregation as a fund raiser. This is a play off of the burger king ads where they act like they don't sell the whopper anymore. I think it's pretty funny especially when you know the people in the video. Mom makes a special appearance!

Kaleb running to Papi

This is Kyle's favorite thing to do with Kaleb! If your in a bad mood or sad Kaleb is just around the corner to cheer you up!!!

Putting in Hardwood Floors!!!

This weekend we tackled putting in the hardwood floors in our house! Dad and Matt started the project on Friday evening and we got the majority of it done Saturday and Sunday. Tom and Kari came over and was a HUGE help!!! We finally have it done... just a few more finishing touches! I will post a before and after pic tonight! I love them by the way! They look really great!

Kyle's Graduation Party!

On Saturday night we had a Graduation party for Kyle!! He's completely done with flight school! YEAH for Kyle! We are so proud of him! He's going to be going back to Houston to work and gain hours so he can find a good job here in Colorado for a while so we will miss him!!! Kaleb got a cute airplane toy from GiGi and Papi! It was a good night to celebrate Kyle's accomplishments

Doctor's Appointment Sucessful! :)

So we had our first doctor's appointment yesterday! It was exciting... I walked away with the offical stamp of pregnancy from a real doctor!!! I wasn't halucinating when I saw two lines on the prego stick a month ago!
I am going to the same Doctor as Andrea (who delivered Kaleb)... she's really nice and Matt and I really like her! The doctor said everything looks good and my offical due date is Sept. 2nd... so I was a day off in my calculations :) So I'm 8 weeks and 3 days along today and next appointment (Feb. 19th) we will hear the heartbeat. I will be 12 weeks at that point. I did get good news that I can get my hair re-highlighted and take warms baths :)
Above is a pic of the new hosptial they are building just 2 mins. away from our house! It opens 08/08/08 - August 8th so I will be able to have my baby in the new hospital which I am sooo excited about! Not only am I excited about the new hospital but I'm thrilled that Deb will hopefully be my neo-natal nurse when the baby is born... she was there when Kaleb was born and I have told her to not go anywhere for LABOR DAY weekend... she's on call :) Thanks DEB!
Well that's about it! Everything is going well so far! Please continue to pray for a healthy baby and healthy pregnancy!

8 weeks along!

This past monday marked 8 weeks along for me! Crazy it's been 2 months! We go to the doctor today and we are excited... I want offical doctor's dianogsis that YES your life is about to change forever!!! I still feel pretty good, just really tired alot!

Below is an excerpt that explains how the baby is growing at this point...we still have a ways to go!
I think it's crazy that it still looks like a little blob baby but it's amazing to look back at my 7 week post and see the growth! I read in a book that if the baby was to continue growing at this rate it would be 15 ft tall by the time it's ONE MONTH OLD! I'm glad the baby slows down!

New this week for BB:

Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his "tail" is just about gone. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. You may be daydreaming about your baby as one sex or the other, but the external genitals still haven't developed enough to reveal whether you're having a boy or a girl. Either way, your baby — about the size of a kidney bean — is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can't feel it.
I will keep you posted after our appointment and let you know if we got to hear the heart beat!

Here is a short video of Kaleb's first attempt to sing along with Guitar Hero! It was hilarious! We have never seen him do that before... We are laughing in the background but you can still hear him! He's so CUTE!

Happy Early Birthday MATT!

Sunday after church we went to Palmer Lake to celebrate Matt's birthday early sicne Nikki is in town and my parents are going to be out of town for Matt's real birthday which is Super Bowl Sunday Feb. 3rd. He will be turning 26! We all had a good time! Kari's sister Krista and her husband and two little girls were in town too.
Happy Early Birthday Babe!

Nikki & Jen and Wes & Brandy in COLORADO

Nikki and her friend Jen came into town this weekend! They got in Friday and it started snowing and really hasn't stopped until today! You can see it was snowing alot the night we took these pics! Wes and Brandy took their church singles group to Winter Park this weekend too so we went up in the mountains to see them. Matt went skiing with Wes and the girls stayed behind chilling in the lodge and their condo. It was fun to see them and be in the mountains!!!

7 weeks along!

Monday marked 7 weeks along! Thought I would post a picture of what the little BB is supposed to look like... starting to look like a little baby now... not so much like an alien :) Ok it still looks like a glob but it's absolutely amazing that God created women to make babies and we all started looking like this!

I'm starting to feel more nauseous in the mornings... especially this morning! But I'm still feeling pretty good! Mom and I went to the maternity store last night and I tried on the fake bump they have in the dressing room to see what I'm getting into :) It was fun!!!

That's about it!

Update on my new "Delicate Condition" :)

So Here's a quick update on how the pregnancy is going so far.... yesterday marked 7 weeks by my calculations! It's crazy! Next tuesday we go to the doctor to get official word from the doctor that YES we are expecting a baby! I think that will make it feel real!

So far I feel pretty good still. Today I felt really sick this morning but it passed thankfully. I have had some funny food stuff though... i have been eating breakfast every morning which is new to me and usually i fix a bagel with butter or creamcheese...well i was eating that in the car the other day on my way to work and all the sudden decided that i never want to eat bagels and creamcheese again! So that was weird.

We went to P. F. Changs for Josh's birthday and I tasted all the chicken and pork on the table as well as a spring roll and lettuce wrap... it was all really good!!!

I am really tired lately... like exhausted! But Good! Today mom and I went to the Maternity store and i tried on the fake bump they have to see what i'm getting into :) It was fun! I forgot my camera so i dont have a funny picture.

Cindy has already offered to throw me a shower in Houston!!! I'm soooo excited! It will be after April cuz that's the month that we find out what the baby is..... boy or girl.

Anyways, please continue to pray for a healty pregnancy and healthy BABY!!!!

We're Having a BABY!!!!

Santa gave us a late surprise this year! Three days after Christmas we found out that we're pregnant!!! We are thrilled and so is our family! Click the video below to see everyone's reaction!

We are so blessed to be able to have this baby and can't wait until Sept 1 2008!!! Our first doctors appointment is Jan. 22nd. So far I feel great! I'm def. a lot more tired but overall good. No weird food craving although I have started trying some different foods such as lobster and pork loin.
We will be able to find out what the baby is in April and we are finding out as soon as possible! Matt obviously wants a little boy! I think he would like having a little mini-me :) And I would fall in love with a girl but def would love a little boy too. I wouldn't mind a little mini Matt :) SO far I think we have picked our names out:

Grayson Alan Butler (Boy) and Addison Leigh Butler (Girl)

I guess we will see what God has in store for us!

We will keep you posted on our newest adventure!!!

Matt and Kristen and B.B. (Baby Butler)
