"Two balls and a little bird." That is what the doctor said.
Do you know what that means? That means we are having a BOY!
Shocked: yes. Disappointed: never.

We had an ultrasound a few weeks ago and while she couldn't be certain at the time it was a girl, the doctor was leaning in that direction. We weren't placing our bets and buying all pink but we were calling Deuce a "she" and a "her." Today we went in last minute for a quick check since I hadn't felt the baby moving as much and something had "sprouted" right up.

Holden is excited it is a boy, but fully expects me to birth a 4 year old little brother for him to play with. Won't a newborn be a rude awakening for him! We are very excited to be having a sweet little baby boy in our arms. I think we make pretty cute ones if I don't say so myself!

Congrats on the little boy! We, on the other hand, can't seem to get anything but girls. But I can't complain since they are cute and fun. It's just one more head of hair to worry about come this fall. (By the way, this is Jan's daughter in Idaho. My mother gave me your address when she got it from your mom. We have a blog too. Our site is jaromandlinsey.blogspot.com)

Hows it going. Congrats on having a baby. I love looking at your blog and how you are doing. I just started a blog so that I can comment on other blogs. And I thought it might be fun to let people know how my family is doing. check it out at
I'm still learning how it all works. Good to talk to you. Hope all is well. It looks like it is.
See ya, Jan Rhoades
