Bonus Post - Family Friday... on Monday

Since I was busy being hip on Friday, I missed my Family Friday post. So, here it is today, with some bonus material.

Baby watch is at 10 days and counting. We're going in for an ultrasound today, which is always a load of fun. He always likes to roll over and make sure there is no doubt about his gender.

Kari is being a trooper, even though she's uncomfortable most of the time. Last night was the exception. She was nice, comfy, and beginning to snore (sweetly) at the point Michael Phelps and the United States 4x100 meter relay team took the starting blocks for their race last night.

I kept my composure through 3.5 of the 4 legs of the relay, but as Jason Lezak begain to gain ground on that big-mouthed French guy I started to softly whisper "go, Go, GO."

Kari didn't hear me.

...Until Lezak touched the wall, and the result came up on the screen.

I went from horizontal to vertical on our bed in one-hundredth of a second, pumped my fist, and yelled pretty loud.

You know, it's amazing how fast a pregnant lady can move when she puts her mind to it...

It's also amazing how hard they can hit...

Seriously, I laughed so hard I cried. Then I read it to my wife and we both laughed so hard we cried. Okay, okay, she chuckled at best, but having been a man with a pregnant wife recently, I can totally relate!! After all we have so few sports moments to celebrate here in Dallas lately.

This race got even my big preggo body up off the couch screaming! We don't have TV in the bedroom though, so Cory didn't get hit for waking me up :) I can't believe it is 10 days away. that is so not fair! I was told on friday she would induce me but we had to wait at least 3 more weeks to see when...ahhh! I want this kid out:)

That race was one of the best things I have seen in awhile, it definitely made me want to say a few things to the French! I am only picturing Kari's reaction, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for that one.
