Christmas pictures

Denise came into town this weekend for Thanksgiving - so I asked her to do some Christmas pictures of the little one. We did them out at my work in front of the gorgeous tree and fireplace.

~They turned out BEAUTIFULLY... dontcha think?~

15 more days

Trains & Trucks or Ribbons & Bows...Boy or Girl Nobody Knows

But in 15 days, we will find out what Littlest Burchett is. (Well, hopefully. If he/she "wants" to show us :)

What do you think? Is Gavin having a little BROTHER? or a little SISTER?
You can vote on the right side bar :)
Then hopefully, December 10 at about 4:30 we will know!!!
(if you want me to text you the news, please make sure I have your number)

I'm sooooooooooooo stinkin' excited!!

~As for how we are doing - we are progressing nicely. Largely. My stomach is getting huger! And the baby is moving A LOT already. Especially when I eat or drink, the little booger just starts kicking and doing flip flops. Then some times at night when Im squishing him/her, he/she kicks just to let me know. It's such an awesome feeling! Even if I'm in a really bad mood or getting stressed out, I can feel him/her move and it just makes me smile. *I remember Gavin didn't ever stop moving. From the time I could feel him at about 4.5 months - he literally didnt stop until I gave birth. Such a wiggle worm that kid was. (I guess that could explain his never-slow-downness that he has now too :) We are so lucky that God gave us the opportunity to have children and to be pregnant. It truly is a miracle!

16 Weeks

Today was my 16-week doctor appt. It was a very basic appt. I did get to hear the heartbeat again (which was AWESOME) but other than that: I have gained another 3 pounds (GEESH), had my blood drawn for the chromosomal testing, and scheduled my next appt for the sonogram. I won't know my results for the testing for about a week but as soon as I do, I will let yall know. Please keep your fingers crossed and prayers headed this way that the baby is healthy. Then the next appt is Dec 10 - we will check the bones and spine and heart and see if it's a he or a she :)
*I recorded the heartbeat on my phone and I've tried to post it on here but I just have NO IDEA how to do that. So if you want to hear it, just let me know and I can either text it or email it to you. It's very fast and loud... my BFF asked if I was pregnant with Clydesdale horses ;)

Spur of the moment photo shoot

Last Sunday we took Edward back to DFW and we stopped for a potty break right outside Weatherford at a Roadside Park. While Daddy went potty, Gavin & I jumped out of the truck and took some pictures (with my phone - so they arent the best). The background was just so perfect for pictures... the trees, the leaves, the country. I wish I had more time and a big fancy camera for moments like this. (Mainly when Gavin will actually *let* me take his pictures!)
*my Fave*

Gav's new purchase

Apparently we have still not outgrown Lightning McQueen :)

Michael Jackson - This Is It

This past Saturday, my Momma and I went to see the Michael Jackson movie "This Is It". It was basically a bunch of his rehearsals and practices getting ready for the upcoming concert series. IT. WAS. AWESOME. Every one of our favorite songs... getting to see them performed on stage. It made me SOOOOO sad that I will never get the chance to see him in concert now. At least before he died, there was that little bit of hope. I can only imagine what the real concert would've looked like because the freakin rehearsals were AWESOME! He is such an amazing performer and dancer and all those people that dance and sing with him are too.... geesh. Im just still so sad that he's gone. Anyway - I took pictures during the movie :) Even videotaped "Thriller". OMG - it rocked!

Trip to Abilene

Several weeks ago, my Mimi & I went to Abilene to see Mom. We did a little shopping and of course, a little goofing off.
We tried one pair on....

Then three :)

And some silly toboggan :)

Pumpkin Patch

We had a blast playing at the Pumpkin Patch this year with Denise, Christy, Chloe, Cameron, Kristi and Shooter.

The Boys

And it wouldn't be complete, if we didn't have a
"typical" Gavin shot :)
