As a matter of fact, we think the baby might have been conceived during the week of Christmas...really close to Christmas (but that's enough info, you don't want to peek that closely).....

Sweet. A Christmas baby....what a gift.

As they are doing the ultrasound....what do we see? Here goes the those few great moments.....

Ballcoach is sitting there taking video on his iphone, when he realizes that he and wifey want some pictures too....so he changes to camera mode....takes a couple of pictures...and as he looks at his iphone....he spreads his eyes and squints....to make sure he sees what he think he sees....realizes there is a much larger screen he can look at...hears his wife sob....immediately switches his eyes to the big screen...and the nurse goes uhoh....Ballcoach says with a raised voice....is that what I think it is? is that what I think it is? Wifey goes please don't tell him...please....and the nurse says it looks like a

boy!!!!!!!!

but she goes on to say I can't officially say that right now...ballcoach begs and pleads....please tell me I can go buy a glove...give me a breadcrumb....and she says I can't....

But I know what I saw....so does Wifey...and so does nurse....

and I just finished another milestone day in my life...

and I feel I don't deserve to be so happy....to have all these blessings....

and as I look at these pictures here tonight....the video of the baby moving...hearing the heartbeat...I realize something...almost profound....

My heart will never be in my body again....my heart will always be this child...
awww you peeked
But congratulations!!!

I hope your sinus infection clears up very, very soon!
good for your daughter to go on & have a blast! I'm sure she was just breathtaking.

So I'm going to call my sister's SIL and see if she will call me in some meds so I don't have to go to the walk in clinic. It's kind of nice to have a nurse practitioner in the family. I'm also super excited because I just saw this morning that Harbor Freight is opening up a store about 5 miles up the road from me!! I love that place. I remember when they opened up the one by the autozone that I use to work at. I was over there everyday at lunch. The employees knew me by name. I use to laugh and tell them that I live by the philosophy that you can never have to many tools!!! My aunt might dispute that though since most of mine are stored in her garage. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!
I hope you feel better Made.

Sounds like the perfect day to me!

Anyhow me and snowball are getting ready to take a nap since we have been up all night,he loves jumping up on my bed and laying between me and brandi...Brandi tells her friends she is married to snowball too...jokeingly she says "I am 3rd in this marriage" luckily she loves dogs as much as me otherwise it would be a problem for a 125 pound dog to jump in between us in bed.lol have a great day friends!!!
hope things get better real soon for you both. A year off spending time with the kids will be great, I loved being able to stay home with mine. there are so many programs, events and groups for moms and kids they can stay busy every day of the week.
It will be an ajustment, but any change is.
Enjoy your nap!

Hey everyone. Hope you're weekend is going well. I am working this weekend, so I am not doing much of anything.

Spring forward tonight! I am looking to it! I know a lot of you won't be looking forward to losing the sleep, but since I will be working, I will lose an hour of work and still get paid. It's the best work day of the year!

Nothing is new here on my end. Hope all is well on everyone's end. Miss you guys.

Halloween II is so good! It's not as great as the first one,but for a sequal it is scary! I remember watching it for the first time when I was 6 or 7 and it was on HBO for the first time after being released...I slept with the light on in my room for 6 months!!

You're welcome! Make sure to check all your detectors too! DH and EA were busy doing that earlier.
