She and Nanny even got to come into the examination room with us to see the baby move on the screen and hear it's heartbeat. It was a great day all around, rounded out by Kinzie getting her blood taken for the state-required lead paint test and she didn't even cry! She was very brave!

I took this picture of Mackinzie napping the other day. It was funny to see her leg hanging over the side of her little bed.
The biggest news of all for Mackinzie is the excitement of becoming a big sister! We go for our first sonogram tomorrow. She is very excited to see a picture of her new baby brother or sister for the first time!
Our sonogram appointment is tomorrow at 4pm. I'm sure one of the first things we'll do when we get home is scan the picture and start posting it on Facebook, MySpace, etc... Please check back at the blog soon to see it!

Mackinzie loves to play the games on NickJr.com. For a little girl who isn't even three years old yet, she's quite to computer whizz!
She's also a little Star Wars geek. (daddy's little girl :) In this short clip, she demonstates who to active a light saber.
In Beltway Fantasy Football news, my team, the Camo Pirates improved to a 2-1 record with an 87-68 victory over 2007 BFF Champions, Michael Motorcycle. It was a rematch of last years BFF Championship Bowl, only this time I won!

In other news, Laura and I went to the Ravens game yesterday. It was great to see the defense blow the Browns out of the water in the second half! It was very hot in the upper deck though and my poor pregnant wife practically baked in the hot sun! I think that will be the last time we sit in Will & Brittany's seats.
It also looks like the Camo Pirates have beaten Michael Motorcycle in fantasy football, but I'll wait till tomorrow to post more on that... when it becomes official.

We had one of the bigger crowds that I've been a part of.
In other news, the pregnancy continues to go well. Laura feels great on some days, while not-so-great on others. Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We are counting down the days until our sonogram appointment next Thursday!

We did hear an approximate due date of April 22, 2009, but that will be re-confirmed after the sonogram. In the meantime, we wait.....
Our mornings and afternoons at home consist of Kinzie playing NickJr.com on the laptop....
... and me working back in my office.
In fantasy football news, the Camo Pirates lost to Zac's Fishers 116-106 this week. It's always tough to score over 100 points and still lose, but I was happy with my teams performance and we're looking forward to a 2007 BFF Championship rematch against Michael Motorcycle next week.

We held our annual BFF Draft/Auction at our house on Wednesday evening. It was another huge success!
... here is last year's league photo...

... we are pregnant!!
In other news, the blog has been dominated this past month with a countdown to the Jimmy Buffett concert. This past Saturday, the day finally arrived. Me and Laura, Will and Brittany, Katie, and Tana all had a great time! Our little tailgate was a great success. There was plenty of food and drink to go around, some comfortable shade under the canopy tent, lots of Buffett music!
(I took this picture with my cell phone camera too.....)
Jimmy played all the hits (of course) with some other random songs thrown in too. Some of my favorite highlights were "Mañana", "Last Mango In Paris", "A Pirate Looks at Forty", and "Fins".
We were at my parent's house yesterday for a Labor Day Office Work Picnic. Around 6pm I looked at the clock and thought, "we could get in the car now and make it to Nissan Pavilion in time to see Jimmy one more time...." but that didn't happen. I guess I'll just have to wait till next summer.
At the office picnic, my Uncle Dave passed down a family heirloom to me.
The rest of the picnic was great! There were plenty of huge crabs and steamed shrimp to go around. I took a jet ski out for a little while and some people went out on a short pontoon boat ride. Kinzie really liked feeding the ducks. There were a whole bunch of them and they all came right up to her to get some bread.
Keep checking back to the blog for more baby news as it develops!
