Practice run

Yesterday afternoon we decided to put Addison in her Halloween costume for a little 'practice run'. Let's just say that she didn't love her costume by any means :) Hopefully she'll wear it again tomorrow with a little less protesting.

Here's our angry little peacock...

First doctor's appointment

Yesterday we saw the world's best OB/GYN for our first prenatal appointment. Everything looks great and we were able to see our little bean....and a very strong heartbeat!

We're thrilled that things went well and we are excited to have a due date to look forward to (June 9th!). Here's the first picture of the newest Opsahl :)

Getting ready for Halloween!

Erik and I have never been big fans of Halloween but this year we decided to really get into the spirit with Addison.

We started out with a trip to the pumpkin patch at Maris Farms in Buckley. Addison *loved* it here....there were tons of pumpkins (of course) but also goats, cows, pigs, and even a few turkeys. She had a great time running around in the mud and checking out the whole farm.

Erik spent the weekend decorating the house with pumpkin lights and last night we decided it was time to start carving!

Of course Addison loved to stick her hands in the pumpkin guts :)

The finished products....Erik's Cougar pumpkin and my attempt at Finding Nemo.

And all lit up!

Friday afternoon Addison and I will head into Seattle to visit Erik at work and then we'll head back home for the neighborhood trick-or-treaters. Addison is going to be a peacock this year and our trial run did not go so well so I'm hoping she'll at least keep the costume on for a few (tearless) pictures!

Guess who's going to be a....

It's still *very* early (about 6 weeks) but we have a doctor appointment/ultrasound at the end of the month and a tentative due date of May 31st!

We're absolutely thrilled and we know Addison will make a wonderful big sister :)
