So, I changed my background to represent the newest member of our family. Does it look boyish? I'm having a hard time with the whole blue thing... not quite used to that yet. Yes, we are having a boy. The girls are thrilled. Andrew is really indifferent to the whole thing. I think eventually he will be excited, but for now it's just another baby. :) As for me- I really thought it was a girl. I felt a little let down by the whole thing. Actually, if you want the truth- I burst into tears when she told us. It's not what I expected and it will take some time to get used to the idea. It means I have a lot to do to get ready and I really hadn't anticipated that. After spending six years with only girls, I have NO idea what I am getting myself into and I have NOTHING that will work for a boy, so I have some shopping to do. I had a friend tell me that I must have at least onesies or something that would work for a boy. Seriously, unless he wants to wear white onesies with pink or purple flowers on them, I really am starting from scratch. This will be interesting. I don't even know how to shop for boy stuff... I guess I'll figure it out.

I can hardly believe it's been nearly seven weeks since I posted my last pregnancy picture. Time goes far too quickly when you are trying to keep it as slow as possible. I am 20 weeks today. Half way... how can that be?! I finally felt the baby kick last week. It was about time- I was starting to wonder. I feel great other than the normal wear and tear of a pregnancy, so I guess I shouldn't complain. I have found that with each pregnancy, I feel a little older, my body feels a little more run down, and I get tired much faster than I used to. My kids are tired of hearing me say, "I just need to sit for a minute". And poor Leah- I think she already knows her end is in sight. She is more clingy with each passing day and I trip over her continuously because she follows me EVERYWHERE. Someday I will be glad my kids are so close in age. (I tell myself that in hopes it will make me feel better.) I hope they will be friends like my brothers and sisters and I were.
On Monday we have our ultrasound. I think everyone else is looking forward to it more than me. I don't care whether it's a girl or a boy. I could probably go another six weeks and not know or care. I want the baby to be healthy. Nothing else really matters. I'm sure I'll put a post on once we know... or maybe I'll make you all wait another six weeks just for the fun of it. :) So, any guesses?? I think it's a girl- it feels very much the same as the others. Andrew doesn't say one way or the other. We have a bunch of people who think a boy is in our future. We don't really care. We know girls- we are happy with girls. It simplifies our lives to have another girl. Either way, we will be excited.
*Ignore my kids' messy bathroom in the picture. The counters are too high in my bathroom to see my stomach and their bathroom was in desperate need of a cleaning. Can you see the toothpaste in the sink? Disgusting, I know.

You all know that Andrew put on that last post, right? He says it's his first and probably his last post ever... I suppose he may put on another if the Ravens make it to the Superbowl...
I'm working on getting my life back together after the holidays. I still feel slightly behind. I've got pictures to post and stories to tell; eventually I will get them on here. In the meantime, just know that we are as busy as the rest of you.
