Well, yesterday was interesting...on my way to work, I got into a little fender bender with another driver. Everybody was fine, except the impact jolted me forward and my seatbelt locked around my belly, pulling it in. I was so worried that I hurt the baby. Josh and my brother, Matt, met me where the wreck was, and Josh called the doctor to see if they could squeeze me in just to make sure that everything was okay. They were able to! We rushed to St. Vincent's, and they eventually got me in with a different doctor. They did an ultrasound and saw that the baby was moving all around and was just fine. No bleeding around the placenta. Josh and I were so relieved!!! Then, the nurse asked us if we wanted to know the sex. We were supposed to find out today anyways, so we said "YES!" After a very long time of wriggling around, she was finally able to tell us that he was 100% boy! She said he was the shyest boy she'd ever seen! He just wasn't ready for his big debut yet...he thought he had one more day to prepare! Even though we didn't get any really good pictures proving that he is a boy, we got a really great one of his face. He is the cutest little boy I have ever seen. I think he looks just like Josh in this picture! So precious! We also got a good one of his legs. They are so long! Looks like he might be taking after his daddy in the height department too! So now we know...another boy for this family! I get to keep my crown as the only girl in the family for another couple of years. Poor Gram:) She is probably tired of every grandchild and great-grandchild being a boy! Even though we had a long, rough morning, it was so wonderful getting to find out the sex a day early! We are so unbelievably excited...a little baseball player. Josh is already talking about his little left-handed pitcher! We have a couple of names that we really love, we'll let you know as soon as we narrow it down to one! We couldn't be happier!

Christmas in Dixie!

Here is our 2009 Christmas picture! It is our first family Christmas pic. This will be such an exciting Christmas...especially since we will find out the sex right before! Also, I have just recently started to feel kicks! Just in the past couple of days, the kicks have started and are becoming more and more frequent. I am 17 weeks in this picture. Baby A is growing!

Norah and Baby A's 1st Picture Together

This is one of my best friends, Erin. She and her husband, Matt, are due in February. I am 14 weeks in this pic. Barely starting to show. We were at November Bunco. I won nothing, but Erin and Baby Norah took home 90 bucks! Norah's really good at Bunco! We can't wait to meet her!
