It's a ......

BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We couldn't be happier! Of course we would have been happy if it was a girl too. We love girls! It's just going to be so much fun to experience all of the new things that will come with this little guy.

Ryan is already planning this little boy's sports schedule.

Harper is going to be a great big sister. We are working with her on knowing that there is a baby in my belly. She hasn't quite grasped the concept yet. I am so excited to see her interact with her little brother. As many of you know, she is quite the little fireball, but she has such a sweet and tender personality. The other day, we were having Family Home Evening and we were all sitting on the couch. We had finished with the lesson and I was crying (just pregnancy hormones, I don't even remember what I was crying about) and Harper got the most sympathetic look on her face. She said, "Aww." and reached over and hugged me and held me and patted me on the back. It was so sweet.

I just know she is going to be the best big sister. Probably like my big sister!

I'm so happy for you guys. It's so wierd to think of Lexi and Harper as big sisters. What happened to our little July babies?

I'm not even trying to teach Lexi that there is a baby in my belly. I'm just teaching her all that I can about babies and we'll see what happens in 2 months.

ABBY! Yay yay! You guys are going to love having a boy! We are so excited for you guys! I just had to laugh when you said Ryan was already planning his sports schedule, I'm sure he will be putting him in only the "most athletic" sports of course! Ha ha Such a funny conversation we had about that! We need to have a chat again...I started reading the Lost Symbol. First page is a definite eye-grabber, i'm a little worried though since you said you had a hard time getting into it and it's a big on! We'll see I guess! Well happy day for you guys! Congrats on both the little bun in the oven and on the house buying! Love ya!
