I've been published!

My "imaginary" friend (phrase coined by Ben in reference to the fabulous ladies of my online mommy board) Lee runs a great product review blog MySentimentExactly where you can find all sorts of great info on the latest and greatest in mommy and baby/kid products (not to mention chances to win some freebies!). She asked yours truly to pen an article on SIDS which can be read here: Check it out and also enter for a chance to win a HALO SleepSack!

did I forget to mention?

We went for an ultrasound a few days before Christmas (I'm 22 weeks - almost 5 months now) and found out that Alex is getting a... BROTHER!!! That's right, it's another boy! I swear these Lindstroms should have been royalty with all the male heirs they could produce. Sorry the images aren't so great but I had to take pics of the ultrasound print-outs since our scanner is broken. Here's another one looking at baby straight on -- that's his head/face on the right and body on the left and you can see his little fist up by his head.

I know Alex is going to love his little brother as he's already been practicing on Addie's...

Cousin Christmas

Last weekend was our I don't know -- umpteenth? -- annual Cousin Christmas. Now that we're all older, a bit more spread out, and having families of our own we've found it works well to just get together after the actual holidays and do a little extended family bonding. There are 5 of us cousins total but us 3 eldest grew up almost like sisters:

Beth, born in June 1978, modeling her new Snuggie (yes, as seen on TV). She keeps things interesting. ;)

Kelly, born December 1978, showing off her latest culinary specialty (yum!). She flew all the way from Thailand for the festivities this year!

And myself, born February 1979, demonstrating my flawless yoga technique on the Wii Fit.

Aunt Debbie even got in on the Wii action!

And a pic of the grammas with their precious grandkids -- my mom with Alex and aunt Debbie with Mason and Caleb (Beth's kids). Not bad with 3 wiggle worms! Aren't they cute?
