Boy or Girl? The verdict is in...

Aidan was right! Aidan and Ethan are going to have a baby SISTER in October!!! I can't believe it! A girl!!! My sweet daughter is coming into a home of two older bros who will surely be protective and a daddy who she'll have wrapped around her lil' finger. AND she's evening out our household---3 boys and now 3 girls (including Hondo). I can't wait to have a daughter to take shopping, get manicures with, teach how to bake our favorite desserts, and see grow into a beautiful woman. And while we wait, I can have fun buying pink clothes, bows and ribbons, and baby dolls. Wow, what a different world this is going to be! The ultrasound shots shown here aren't the greatest just because of the direction she was facing and the placement of the placenta. Everything looks, for the most part, healthy and functioning properly. Hopefully she will continue to grow and develop so that she'll be a healthy baby!

She's definitely related to us, her foot was HUGE compared to the rest of her body!!!

One final down, 3 to go!

James took his Contracts final today. Only three more to go and then we get to go on VACATION!!! I'm counting down the days (16). We've had a rough year and are in desperate need of a vacation. I can't wait! I can't wait! I can't wait! We DID book a trip to Cancun (like back in Jan/Feb) before we realized how horribly dangerous Mexico seemed. BUT our reservations were nonrefundable, nontransferable. Then we heard that as long as you were on the resort you were fine. So we decided that the trip was still on. Well, in comes SWINE FLU!!! Now not only is the trip to Cancun off, our nonrefundable plane & hotel tickets were REFUNDED!!! Woohoo! Thank you Mr. Contagious S.Flu! I've never been to Mexico, but I'm very comfortable with waiting for that chance. We decided to stay safe in the U.S. and go to Orlando. More about our trip later! Study away James, the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight.
