Our Anniversary

December 30th, Nick and I celebrated our 5th anniversary. Having our anniversary right in the middle of Christmas and New Years has made it hard to ever do much for our past anniversaries. Typically we are surrounded by family or out of state. This year we finally were able to do something special, just the two of us.
Nick's parents were nice enough to watch Cole for us so we could enjoy a night out.
Our day started out with our big 20 week sonogram for baby #2. Normally our doctor would have let us do this sono a week or so earlier because normally parents are so anxious to find out the gender, but since we weren't finding out, we just decided to wait till 20 weeks. Normally Nick doesn't come to my appointments but he likes to come for sonograms. This sonogram is always cool because the baby actually looks like a baby and not a blueberry.
The baby looks totally healthy and perfect and apparently very active. It's looking like I'm measuring at 21 weeks, a week ahead of schedule, but that's pretty normal. Baby was about in the 90th percentile so if he/she takes after big brother Cole, we won't be too surprised :)
It was SO hard not finding out what the gender was, I mean, it was right there and so easy to find out. Our sono technician even made us plug our ears because she types some things on the machine and she didn't want us to hear if it was three or four letters. Ha!
We got a lot of great pictures, but here is one of my favorites....cute profile!!!
 
After my doctors appointment, we went to do a little shopping. I can't even remember the last time Nick and I have been at the mall at the same time!! It was kind of fun and we got a lot accomplished!

Then, we drove to downtown Dallas and checked into a really cool hotel. We got ready and went to dinner at Steele. It is a yummy sushi restaurant but of course I stuck to my california rolls. It still was very good and we had a great time. We then went back to the hotel and hung out at the lounge in the hotel. It's a really cool bar called The Library and it made me feel like I was in the game of Clue :) We had dessert, listened to music and enjoyed eachothers company.
The next morning we had breakfast then headed back home....it was a perfect night alone with my hunny bunny :)
