Beach in December

14 Dec


Leigh, Chip, Kerry and I went to the beach for Saturday and Sunday and had a great time. Chip recently purchased a condo right on 3rd Street with great views and access to the boardwalk and beach. Obviously, we did no swimming this weekend but it was nice to get out of DC and hang out with them in Ocean City. Leigh found an indoor miniature golf place so we had a competitive round of golf (Kerry and Chip tied) and Leigh amused all of us when she almost stepped into a water hazard because she ‘did not think it was really water.’ Luckily for her, Chip stopped her forward motion into the moat that would have surely left her pretty wet.


The course even had a submarine that we had to go through. I think Chip an Kerry got a hole-in-one in the sub.

minigolf2Leigh took this picture and I am not sure if she was trying to get a picture of my growing mid-section or Kerry adding up the mini-golf score.


We look a little wind blown in these pictures but still wanted to post. I am officially 24 weeks and 4 days.

Cool movie

1 Dec

I checked out National Geographic’s In the Womb special from the library (set your DVR- it will be airing on Nat Geo on December 12th at 4am) and we watched it between football games on Sunday. Basically, the film follows a woman through her pregnancy and shows really cool photos and video of her baby. But, one of the fun things we actually learned is that even in the womb, everyone has a dominant hand. So, will Baby V be a lefty like Mom or a righty like Dad? Of course, Mom is hoping for a lefty 🙂 Statistically, when one parent is left handed and the other right handed, the child in 80% of cases will be right handed (that does leave me with a 20% chance AND since my dad is left handed I think the odds may be better). We looked at the ultrasound photos from a few weeks ago and in one picture her left hand is up but in the other picture both hands are by her head so there is really no clear favorite.

Overall, great movie! These two viewers give it two thumbs up.
