After 3 years of trying, our little one joined us in May of 2010. 2 years later she became a big sister! Join us as we try to grow our family and sing God's praises.

It's amazing what you can do with 55 dollars...
You can eat a nice meal with your spouse.
You can fill up a small tank of gas in your car.
You can have your dog groomed.
You can find out the gender of your baby!
Looks like Macie will be having a sister in March! I was going to try to wait until our next Dr. Appointment in a few weeks and ask for a gender confirming ultrasound, but yesterday we were gathered with family, and we had lots of stuff to catch up on. My brother and SIL are moving - they finally sold their house. We were discussing the holidays, my father being in rehab (which is a good thing), and I just got this overwhelming urge to find the gender. So I made a joke, "I have half a mind to go to pr.enatal pe.ek and find out the gender". The whole room (including DH) said "okay!". So before I knew it people had looked up the phone number on their iphones and I was calling, they said "Come in now", and 55 dollars later, we saw our little girl!
I still mean it when I say that I couldn't be dissapointed. I just want a healthy baby. And that's sooooo true. But golly, I'm excited when I look at all the nice stuff Macie has (bedding, blankets, CLOTHES) and I think that I am grateful that I get to re-use them. I didn't grow up with a sister, but I always thought it would be fun. DH said he's going to start a Da.ve Ram.sey enevelope for femine hygene products. Ha. (holler if you have drinking from the FPU/D.ave Ramsey coolaide!).
So I have been a terrible blogger as of late (what can I say, teaching 4 classes, plus raising an 18 month old (tomorrow she'll be a year and a half!, and being 20 weeks pregnant has taken most of my energy). If it weren't for daylight savings time I don't know if I would've have even had a moment for this post!
Here is the big sister in her crib. I love that she looks like she's posing in this picture.
