It's a...

Well, I had my ultrasound yesterday (Wednesday), and we found out that our baby is a GIRL! I am in shock. I thought for sure it was going to be a boy--I had no doubt. I'm pretty sure Andrew was counting on a boy, too. Imagine our shock when the ultrasound technician said that we are having a little girl!
Of course, I am very excited. I grew up with one sister and we are extremely close, so in my opinion, girls rock! But every time I go to Babies R Us I look at boy things, and we have discussed a few boy names. But girl names and girl stuff? Never crossed our minds! We have a lot of planning to do. I think Andrew might be slightly disappointed, but I am beyond excited.
By the way, we had some blog issues in the wee hours of the morning. Andrew was doing some work online and accidentally deleted our blog! (I had no idea that one could do this.) We have put all the posts back up, but we obviously lost the comments that everyone made about the posts and we have lost the "boy or girl" poll. Oh, well. All of this happened in the middle of the night while I was sleeping and Andrew had fixed most of it by the time I woke up this morning. He is a computer genius.
Following is an ultrasound picture of our little girl. She was very curled up yesterday and didn't feel like moving, so we didn't get any pictures of her face. I guess she wasn't in the mood to have her picture taken--a true diva! Luckily, the pictures are labeled, because Andrew and I don't think that the pictures look much like what they apparently are. Hopefully she will look more like a baby and less like an alien by the time she is born.


I am still learning how to use this blog thing. all have probably figured this out before me, but when someone leaves a comment on our blog, you have to go to the post and click on "comments" to view all the comments associated with that post. It's kind of confusing, but I have not figured out another way yet. Maybe Andrew can fill me in on how to become better friends with our blog, but for now, this is all I know how to do.

Boy or Girl?

Hopefully we will find out next week if we are having a boy or girl.

Welcome to our blog

Hi everybody! Here is our first official blog posting, I guess for Christmas and the holidays. Andrew and I stayed around Corpus Christi for Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve with my family and Christmas Day with Andrew's family. We had them come to our house, which was fun. The most eventful part of our Christmas was that Andrew's car broke down on his way to work Christmas night! So I ran out the door and rescued him. Luckily, Andrew is amazing and can fix almost anything that is wrong with one of our cars, so he pulled out the transmission and fixed it. I am so lucky to have such a handy husband!
In other news, we are expecting! Our baby is due June 14th, which is two days before our fourth anniversary. We are pretty excited but also completely terrified at the prospect of being new parents. This Christmas was the last one with just the two of us! We will post ultrasound pictures and belly photos of me as we get them.
