i do think i've broken a personal record this time for longest time not to post.
but i do have a good excuse.
and if you're not friends with me on facebook, then maybe you'll be surprised to find out that...
this little guy's prayers have been answered & he's going to be a big brother!
yes, i'm almost to 9 wks. we went to the dr today & were able to see the little peanut & his/her little heart thumping wildly - what a blessing.
*and as a side note i'd like to say i absolutely adore this picture. i can't look @ it with out totally cracking up. the story is that we were doing a little family shopping during the fourth of july weekend (because, really nothing says "happy fourth!" like family chickfila minis for breakfast & shopping later on!) & hudson decided he wanted to try on daddy's shirt while daddy tried on the other shirts. & voila - choir boy was born :)
and it was that picture of hudson that caused clint & i to realize that we had been out all morning sporting the same shirt.
but you know, nothing says "happy fourth of july!" like going out as a family wearing matching shirts - especially in shades of blue - how very americana of us!
anyway, back to what you really care about - the baaaaaaabbbby (you know, how elaine's friend says it from seinfeld).
would you believe it if i told you we already know the baby's gender?
it's this state of the art, new test they have called your 2 yr old waking you up in the middle of the night & as you're laying him back down to sleep he says, "mama?". to which you reply a sleepy "yes?" & he says "...sister...". to which you totally freak out because it's pitch black dark in your house & you are getting goose bumps - especially when you realize that you have no idea where he even learned that word & you've never heard him say it.
so at least someone is buying it because when i got back to stephanie's house to pick up hudson after our dr's appt (did i mention how dear & sweet she is for adding another hooligan to her crew so we wouldn't have to wrangle him while being sonogrammed?), she had whipped up this PINK hat for the babe :)
so what do you think? would you believe such a premonition?
