My little cowboy!!

Richard came home on Tuesday as a surprise to me. But what a pleasant surprise. One of the things that had been on my list of things to do for him was find some Dallas Cowboys attire for Jackson. So what better time to do it then when he was away, and surprise him when he got back. So that's what I did. He absolutely loved it. I am sure he already has plans for him and his son, which will most likely involve sports. I am so grateful that Richard is so involved with us and such a part of this pregnancy just as much as I am. Jackson is definitely going to be loved.

Alaska beauty!!

Alaska wildlife......not so wild though, you see them most in back yards and on downtown streets.

I just love the country I live in right now. Alaska has some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever layed eyes on.

Our visit to a glacier. It was just a beautiful day, and it was 4 days before my birthday so it was special.

This picture means a lot. Those are trees left over from the 1964 earthquake that hit here. It completely wiped out the area surrounding these trees. These trees are petrified so they will never grow.

This is a view from the train ride through alaskas wilderness. This is Hurricane Gulch. There is a tressle that goes across this water that stands 296 feet in the air. It is one of the most loved attractions by tourists.

Random Pictures!!

I have had some friends tell me that I need to post some more pictures. I realize I have posted the last few times without photos, so here is a catch up.

This is our latest ultrasound. I thought it was adorable that we got such an amazing of his hand. We printed this one especially for daddy because he couldn't be there. Richard just beamed when I sent it to him. He is such a proud daddy already.

This is my first time every making homemade bread. By homemade I mean, by hand in the oven not in a bread maker. I was proud of myself. I am into experimenting in the kitchen lately with all the free time I have. I am also trying to be self reliant so I don't have to spend so much money on groceries.

ITS A BOY!!!!!!

Yay!! Today is one of the greatest days of our lives. After confusion and miscommunication I finally went to our sonogram today. Little Jackson Lee Dalton will be the next addition to our family. The technician was so wonderful. During the hour long appointment, she measured everything from Head to brain to feet to legs and organs. He was so active the whole time she was examining me. It seemed as if he knew what she was doing, because when she went to measure his face he put his hands up there, when she got to the umbilical cord he started playing with it. He did sommersaults and flips like crazy. I love that my baby is active. Another cool thing is she measured me at 22 weeks 3 days which is actually 9 days ahead of what we initially thought. I am so stoked. This is so real. I have always wanted to be a mommy and finally it is coming true. I am truly blessed with this great responsiblity. I am blessed with the most wonderful husband that supports me every step of the way and is just as involved as I am. Jackson has the best daddy. I thank Heavenly Father every day for this lovely gift and hope that I can make him proud.
