We're having a boy! March 17th



Today is a good day! My doctor appointment went great. My blood panel came back " perfect.".... and my intuition was confirmed. We are having a boy! Cole Michael is the name we have chosen. Paul and I couldn't be happier. I have gained a total of 10 pounds in the last 4 1/2 months.. and I feel great. Cole weighs half of a pound, and is compared to the size of a large bell pepper. I am having heart burn like crazy, so tums have been my best buddy.... it seems like everything causes it, from toast to a chili burrito. That is definitely my worse complaint. I felt a flutter in my lower left side of my tummy a few nights ago, and the doctor said to assume that was him!!! .. and to expect much more stronger movements from this point on. I can't wait for Paul to be able to feel him!!!!!! According to our email posts we receive daily, Cole can hear just about everything now, so we have been practicing appropriate language, and Paul sings to him everynight before we go to bed. This is truly the best journey of our lives, and we are enjoying every minute of it. <3

More time at the pool




We are enjoying Marc and Cherrie's pool every chance we get. The weather has been great... and we love it. This time Brianne, Tyler, and Jackson were able to join us. The more the merrier!
