Catching up with Ketchup

GOSH, I love KETCHUP!  My baby cousin even claims that I taught him to put ketchup on his goldfish…


For the record: I did NOT tell him to put ketchup on his crackers, but I guess I probably did tell him that ketchup was good on EVERYTHING.  Kids do listen.  Especially to baby-sitters who let them eat crackers and crackers with ketchup for dinner.

Ok, now for the REAL catch-up:

I have been slacking on the blogging updates.  It is hard to believe how fast time is flying.

I am now in the middle of week 18, pushing the half-way point, and pushing my belly out even further.  Even though my grandma doesn’t think so, I have really started to ‘show’ in the past couple weeks.  I seemed to pop out overnight. Crazy and amazing changes have been taking place, inside and out!

Week 18 – Bell Pepper

I have actually felt a couple movements in the past week or so, and that is beyond exciting! We also have our 2nd ultrasound this week.  It will be the ‘Anatomy Ultrasound’, checking all of the vitals, as well as the possibility to find out the gender.  Unless the baby is spread eagle, showing all, we are still planning to let it be a big surprise… We’ll see if we can stand the temptation.

Watch this video to find out more (crazy, baby actually looks like a BABY now):


Baby Cheesehead

So far, we know 2 facts.

1. Baby P. loves cheese just as much as Momma P.

2. Baby P’s presence does not determine a Packer win.

A little over a week ago, Boggle took his/her first trip to a PACKER game! The Plagemann’s are so proud. (Not of the Packer loss, but of Baby P’s stellar upbringing)


We had a blast in Cincinnati! Made it to the zoo – which is probably an activity that will be even more fun once there is a stroller, diaper bag, and cooler in tow.  But for now, we enjoyed one last trip where we could get through the whole park in 4 hours, spend too much money on ‘so-so’ pizza, and head to the downtown Oktoberfest Zinzinnati afterward.

Oktoberfest was insanely crowded, but we managed to grab a couple brats and chant along with the Packer fan base that took over the city.  Geoff says that if a Wisconsin-ite hears the words ‘Oktober’ and ‘fest’ they say “when? where? let’s go, now!”

While in Cincinnati, we made it to week 16! whoohoo.  I picked up a nasty case of Poison Ivy getting this photo-op, but looking back I’m sure I will say it was worth it.  I suppose Poison Ivy is safer than standing this close to a real bull anyway.
