Baby Wolf Update

We figured out this morning why there's a reason they don’t typically do ultrasounds after week 20. Our doctor scheduled an ultrasound because the baby is large for his gestational age and there was a couple other things they wanted to check. So at 7:00 am this morning we were at the hospital getting ready to see our little man. But at this stage in the game, everything is so squished in there that you can’t really see any of the features. We got a couple photos but they don't look any better than the previous ones. The tech was able to take measurements but we couldn’t get a good look at his face. He was being pretty stubborn and kept putting his hands over his face again. The one glimpse we did get made him look really angry. He does have a lot of hair though!! But it was rather painful having all that pressure against my uterus. At one point the room started swimming and getting way too hot. The technician figured out I was about to pass out and made me turn on my side. I guess it happens a lot but I was nauseous and sweating really bad. She said there was too much pressure on the blood veins. It was rough. I had to lay down for a half an hour afterwards once we got home. All that aside, she said everything's good. She calculated based on bone measurements and growth that my due date should actually be closer to March 8th instead of the original March 20th. (The same as my coworker--we might be in the birthing center together after all.) But some of his measurements put him at almost 36 weeks. I’m supposed to be at only 32 ½ according to my doctor. So I’m really curious to see what she says at our next appointment. He’s already 5 ½ lbs! And the measurement error margin is 12 oz so he could very well be over 6. Good grief! Our little over achiever--long bones like his daddy and a good eater like his mommy. = ) There appears to be nothing to worry about. Now I'm just hoping little guy holds out long enough for me to finish getting things ready at work and home.

A whole new Girl

Or the incredible shrinking hair.

Katie got a few haircuts during the last year and now she looks very different.

The dates on some pictures are wrong. This is from March 2008, May 2008 and Jan 2009.

Andy's 19th Birthday

Andy turns 19. Here is a picture from last year, beginning his final in his song-writing class for his High School. He's off at BYU having a great time.
This year he's in the BYU band. A performance of theirs will be broadcast on BYU TV. We'll let you know when to tune in.

Hope you had a great day, Andy.

Love Dad

Uncle Bill

I didn't know if you guys got to see this or not. I found it on the Deseret News website. It still amazes me how much I don't know about my extended family. I never knew he served in Mexico.
Wish I could be there.
Love you all!

A much needed update Daniel is 9 Months!!

Ok so once again I have lost track of time. I have been meaning to get on and give you all an update but have just not been able too with all the things that have been going on. So I due believe that you are all deserving a much needed update on our little portion of the McGee family. So here goes.
Adam has started school at UVU and is doing really well. I am always amazed that he can be working full time, go to school full time, have a family and still get a 3.6 GPA and have slept through 2 of his finals. How he does it I have no idea!! Well anyhow he is enjoying work as well. Not that far back he received a per motion and now works in the update department. And is now learning flash, and is very excited about it. He is enjoying life and is hoping that he is able to learn more in animation and the field that he is working in. As for me there is not to much that is new although there is some, I have decided to wait on school for right now. But have been taking some cake decorating classes. Adam designed me a web site if you want to take a look www.puffsofsugar.com. I have a couple more cakes that I will be doing this spring and summer. Not including one the end of this month for my sister. It is really stressful at times but I truly do enjoy it. I have also started to take care of some little girls during the week for a sister in our ward. So that is really all that I have been up to.
As for Daniel he has been up to so much lately. In the last couple of months he has continued to eat solid foods and is now just getting use to the different textures, although he really likes bananas and strawberries, peas and green beans are not his favorite, although he does eat them. Around the beginning of December Daniel also learned how to crawl. But then just learning how to crawl only lasted about a week, and he was already pulling up, and trying to figure out how to climb. I think it is kinda funny when he falls I know that sounds mean but he just lays there and the reaction is so funny. Granted we do pick him up when he is really hurt. Any how I really like to watch him learn new things. Daniel is now just starting to figure out how to balance. I do hope that he does not start to walk for just a little longer. Although I don't think that this kiddo is going to slow down for anything!! Daniel has also learned a couple of words. He loves to say DADA. He also says something to the affect of "DAD DO IT." Usually wanting Adam to pay attention to him or something like that. One of his favorite things to do is to wait for Adam to get home from work. He will crawl over to the window pull himself up, to stand there saying DADA over and over. I think its pretty cute. So any how I think that is about all that is going on for now. Well we hope that all of you have had an amazing holiday season. We had lots of fun being around family and thank all that sent cards and gifts, we truly are enjoying them. Daniel received several books and that box of diapers that he asked Santa for. He was quite excited about the diapers!! (he just really only wanted to play with the box, but oh well.) Adam got some books and a Video camera from his parents. I received some totally awesome slippers and a new carrying case for all my cake supplies. It was really fun!! Well anyhow I really will try to make sure that next month is on time. Oh and if there are any of you who did not get a Christmas card from us and would still like one or just a picture of our family please let me know so I can get them sent out. Well I think that this is long enough so I will let you all go and will talk more later.
Love you all very much!!
Adam, Betsy and Daniel
