The Verdict Is In...

Baby W had a doctor's appointment this morning. Bryan and I took the baby and got to take a little peek... The verdict is in... We now know if Maddy is going to have a baby brother or a baby sister... It looks like Bryan and Nash will officially be outnumbered now, and we'll have two little princesses at our house!! Yep, that's right!! We're pleased to announce that we'll be having another little girl towards the end of October!!! :) Baby girl W is due to arrive around October 27, 2010. She currently weighs in at a whopping 1.5 pounds and is right on track for her due date! The doctor said that everything looks great!!

Before the question comes up, no, we haven't decided on a name. We're actually having a bit of a tough time choosing one. This is where you, our faithful readers, come into play. We're taking suggestions for names. Before you get too excited, the following names have been suggested by baby name websites and have already been vetoed: Bathsheba, Ruth and Gertrude (among others)... Hit us with your best shot!!!

In the meantime, I'm going to continue looking for stain remover for pink clothing... Still haven't found the best product, and it looks like we won't be seeing any dark colored clothes in our near future!!! :)

We'll keep you posted on her progress!! Talk to everyone soon!

Love you guys!! :)

I'm Afraid...

...That I may have passed my fear of characters on to Maddy.

This guy:

had Maddy TERRIFIED tonight. HaHaHa. The spouses' group for Bryan's squadron had a fundraiser this evening at Chick-fil-A. The group will receive a percentage of the profits that were made between 6 and 8 PM this evening. I am a fairly active member of the group, so my mom, Maddy and I went to show our support and had dinner there tonight. What a farewell dinner for my mom, huh? Her last night in Abilene, and we take her to Chick-fil-A... Lucky, huh? LoL.

Back to Maddy and the cow. Maddy repeated "cow" the whole time we were there, and as the cow got closer, she changed her phrase to "big cow". Once, the cow tried to give her a high-five, and her countenance changed VERY QUICKLY and she frantically started repeating "hug me" to whoever she was closest to (me or my mom). HaHaHa. Poor kid was terrified. Of course, after he walked away, she went right back to repeating "cow". LoL. :) Needless to say, we didn't get any pictures of her with the cow. :)

I hope everyone's week got off to a good start. My mom leaves in the morning. We're pretty sad, but getting back to "normal" was inevitable. HaHaHa. Dad, I'm sending her home. Take good care of her!

Talk to everyone later!

Love you guys!!

This One's For Bryan...

Some people start their day with coffee... Not Bryan! When he needs a pick-me-up, his go-to beverage is this:

So, why am I bringing this to your attention today? Well... I'm glad you asked. What's that? You didn't ask? Well, let's pretend that you did...

Today marks 20 weeks of this pregnancy. Yes, I'm aware that we haven't talked much about this pregnancy. Yes, Kate, I know that you warned me about bambino numero dos... and that I better do things exactly like I have with Maddy, and, well, it looks like I'm already slipping. Here's hoping that life will slow down soon, and I can give this baby a little more attention. At the current moment, I'm doing as much as I can... Resting, eating, yep... Got it covered! HaHaHa...

Ok, so back to the fact that this is week 20. I've been following this website that goes week-by-week to tell what's happening with the baby... What's happening with me... Etc. My favorite part of the website is that it compares the baby's size to something tangible that we can all picture in our heads. I heard about these sites when I was pregnant with Maddy, but never found one. This time around, I searched again, and was pleasantly surprised with how easily I found one... This week (week 20), the baby's size is compared to that of a can of Red Bull... So, Bryan, this week is for you!! I LOVE YOU!!

I hope you're all having a good week. Our week has been stressful and hectic, but (knock on wood) today has been a HUGE improvement, so here's hoping that our week is improving!

Love you guys!
