A couple people have asked how we came up with Dexter's name. So, here it is:
Dexter Gordon is my favorite jazz musician. He played the saxophone, and recorded mostly in the 40's, 50's, and 60's. I thought it was just a cool name, too. After a while, Dallas agreed with me. Check out the song in this post if you're interested.
Douglas is Dallas' Dad's name.
Not everyone was crazy about the name when we told them. Here is the conversation I had with my Mom when I called her right after Dexter was born:
Me: We had the baby
Mom: So, what did you name him?
Me: Dexter Douglas
Mom: (pause) .... really?
Me: Yeah. You don't like it huh?
Mom: It sounds like the phone book guy.

Thought I should take a picture for my 20 week mark and share. So, here it is. As most of you know we had our ultrasound on Monday, and we're having another boy. That's what we were hoping for, so we're happy. The baby looks healthy. He doesn't seem to have any birth defects, as far as they could tell from the ultrasound. I'm doing well and feeling good. I've still been running. Just a couple of days a week. I'm going to try to run a 5K two weeks from Saturday. As of now I know I can do it. I will probably be a lot slower than normal. I'm going to try hard to not push myself during the race. It's hard in a race situation. Anyway...It's a boy! Yay!

After we had finished our first hole, this guy came up to us that worked for the course. He told us that we took 35 minutes to finish the first hole, which we didn't. They expect you to do it in 15 minutes or less. He told us not so kindly that we need to speed up and let people play through who come up on us. He also pointed out that people pay to finish there, like we didn't. It was fine that he pointed out that we needed to hurry, but he didn't need to be jerky about it. We had a pretty fun time golfing anyway. I played my best ever. It's a lot more fun when you play well. Jason got a 119 and I got a 134 for 18 holes. It was a pretty tough course. There were times you were golfing off cliffs and you couldn't see where the hole was at all. It was the toughest course I had ever golfed.
Other than golfing, we went to a movie. We saw True Grit, which I would say was just okay. We also hung out with our friends, and played games. Went out to eat of course. It was just a nice, relaxing, fun little weekend. We were glad to share it with Matt and Melanie. We're also thankful for the use of A.T.'s condo.
We were lame and didn't get very many pictures. I hope to be better at that this year.

Here's our little guy dancing. He loves to dance. He just thinks that's what you do when music comes on. Most of the time he just runs in circles nodding his head. I love his hip shaking in one, and the good use of the chair in the other. Sorry about the shaky camera. I think I was dancing along.
