..."popsicles on the porch"...what a great afternoon treat and our favorite way to spend time together! These are simple and precious moments! Princess #1 and Princess #2 along with Little Man #1 and #2 are my inspiration for most of these writings.

Drum Roll Please....

The results are in...it's a boy! Tim and I are ecstatic! What a great birthday present for the proud Papi who just turned 32 on Wednesday!





Our two girlies were in the room with us when my ultrasound was being done. When our big girl was asked if she wanted a boy or girl, she emphatically declared, "I want a girl, I want a girl!" So when the technician turned to us and said, "it's a boy" her response was simply, "ok, now it's time to find the girl baby!" Hilarious!!

In the words of my big girl, now it's time...to pick a name!!! Noah has been on the table ever since we were pregnant with big girl #1. Being that we did not know in advance the sex of the baby, this was the boy named we had picked out. So it's definitely high on our list!

While we had a great report overall on our ultra sound, the midwives did discover a slight shading over the left ventricle of the heart. They explained that this is pretty common at this stage, but they do want to follow up with another ultra sound at my 28wk visit. They indicated that many times the shading disappears and there are no problems. However, if this shading is still detected at my 28wk visit, then we will need to see a specialist.

So, we are fervently lifting this up to the Lord. We welcome your prayers over our little one and are hopeful that all is ok!

Will keep ya posted!
