Baby Update

We went to the doctor today for Brandi's 20-week check up. They did an ultrasound and then took a couple of measurements and sent us on our way. This new doctor is great when it comes to seeing us on time and making customer service a priority.

Everything looked to be right on track. The baby is measuring everything right where it should be and we're still on track for the September 30th delivery.

The one thing we wanted to find out today was the sex of the baby, and of course, the baby wasn't cooperating. Looks as though the baby is already showing my smart-assness, which is a good sign. The baby had somehow gotten itself into a seemingly impossible position where his/her feet were above his/her head. Add to that the cord was in the way, and the baby's hand was covering up its privates. Apparently, baby is modest. So we'll be going back in a few weeks for another ultrasound and hopefully the baby will be cooperative. It was nice to see that everything's coming along well and that the baby's fine.

Here's Brandi showing off her baby bump.

Spam, Spam, Everywhere There's Spam

For some reason, my Yahoo! inbox has been bombarded with spam over the last few days. Apparently, I've won a lot of free Dell laptops that I didn't even know I was in the running for. There are also a lot of schools that would like me to apply to their nursing, criminal justice, and massage schools. I didn't realize I had such an aptitude for these things, but perhaps there's some hidden talent within that I didn't know about. After all, I didn't realize that a career in libraries was for me.

Up until now, Yahoo! has been really good about restricting spam, and for a while, even my spam folder was kept pretty trim. I don't know what happened that would allow so much spam to be getting past the filter. My online activities for the last few weeks have been much less than usual, and I haven't been visiting any sights that I didn't frequent before. Maybe those clever spammers have found a way to get past the precautions that were already in place. Hopefully it will all clear itself up.
