We're having a...







.....And SHE'S perfect! Yes, friends! It's a girl and we are very excited for Abby to have a "Baby Stister"! What a blessing at this time in our lives! This is the best shot we got of her!

The ultrasound was short, but sweet, and she slept the entire time! (Unlike Abby, who moved around like crazy at all of her 4 ultrasounds!) She's about 10 oz right now and everything measures as it should and all parts are accounted for! We are very excited! I must admit I felt a teensy bit of disappointment that it wasn't a boy, but as soon as I knew it was a girl, I quickly felt very close to her! I guess it just got real all of a sudden! It's so amazing that she can be so tiny, but we can see every part of her sweet little body!

What a great day we have had! Life is good!

So pretty soon, I'll be pulling out the teeny baby girl clothes from the attic and getting to work on sewing curtains and bedding for a VERY GIRLY room! It'll be fun...

At the carwash...

Abby loves to wash the cars with her dad. She especially loves the big brush that he uses! After a long day of playing in the backyard in the dirt, we decided it would be a perfect time to do just that. Hence the dirty face and clothes! And she does just about everything with her bike helmet on, so you can see it was kind of comical for me to watch! Enjoy!

Abby's Morning with "Dog"

A few weeks ago, Abby woke up in the morning and her first words were, "I wanna go in da backyawd with Dog". Dog is her pink floppy-eared dog that Grandma gave her for Valentine's Day. I usually make her eat and get dressed and all that first, but I figured, "Why not?" and let her go out just as she was! She of course had to put on her 4 sizes too big hot pink cowgirl boots (I have trouble getting her to wear any other shoes these days;0) And off she went out the back door! I couldn't resist a few pics, because it was soooo cute!
Pushing Dog in the swing...

...and again...

...and finally, Dog's ride on the slide!

Baby Gavin's Blessing

My older brother, Scott and his wife, Cristy, blessed their new baby here in Florence last weekend!
