Drum roll Please......

Well folks, we had the big ultrasound yesterday, and the results are in. But before I give you the news, I first need to say...I MISS Betty. Betty was our ultrasound tech with Maggie, and she was freaking awesome!! When we walked away from an ultrasound with her, we had butloads of pictures, and they were clear and they were on a cd too. Sadly, this ultrasound was a HUGE disappointment to me. Well, the actual ultrasound was fine, I saw lots of great stuff on the screen. However, when all was said and done, we walked away with four crappy, fuzzy pictures of the babies face, and one unseeable picture of it's "privates". It was a letdown to say the least. On the upside, the new doctor I'm seeing is about 1000% better than the last, totally cool and that is what really matters right? I'm just a little sad that I don't have a fun ultrasound pic to share with you. But, I know you're all just dying to know, so without further ado, here is the answer.


Can you stand it? We're having a boy? I just really wasn't totally prepared for that, I was believing in my heart I'd have another girl. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy, and we'll love him so much, but I just thought having another girl would be much easier. I mean, they'll only be 15 months apart, so I already have all the stuff, and they could grow up to be such pals, etc. But, God had something else in mind, and I'm excited to see what this new adventure will bring. Jere however was a bit more than devestated by the news. He thinks he can only be a good girl Dad. But I've assured him that he will be just great at a boy as well. On another "bright side" note, he will at least get to have a friend. Our good pals Jamie and Gina are having a "baby Blueberry" in September, so hooray. Never mind that they live in Austin, that is only a minor inconvenience. haha

I have no idea what we're gonna name him, 'cause we have a few that we like. We've been a fan of Davis or Gavin, and then I decided I liked Max, 'cause really, how cute is Max and Maggie. I mean, I'm so sure, that's adorable. But, then I realized there are 4 bajillion Max's in the world right now, and my sister Dixie informed me that there are apparently 4 bajillion and 1 Gavins, so now what do I do? I guess only time will tell.

In other news, workshop is on it's last day of the first week, and I'm so far behind (and apathetic) it's frightening. How do I get this way? I just don't know. We have a lovely bunch of kids, and they're doing a great job, it's just me that is mostly sucking. I have no creative inspiration at all. UGH!

Maggie gets to go spend her afternoons with Brooklyn and Jenny, and she's loving it. I think she's been missing her "sister" cousin, and a bit confused as to where Brooklyn went so abruptly one day. I love that she gets to spend some time in a different environment and play with Jenny. It's a good thing she's such a good baby and doesn't 'cause any trouble, haha. Speaking of, have I mentioned she has 4 huge teeth? She does, and they're pretty cute too. She's also moving around like a little demon, I think we'll see some walking in the next month or so. She still won't crawl like a "normal" person on her knees, but that certainly doesn't stop her.

Well, she's crying in her crib, time to get up and have her morning bottle. Besides, I should think about workshop, and how to block three new numbers.

Peace out peeps. This boy mama is off to a new day.

Yay!!! Congratulations on your little boy. That is crazy! Jere, you'll be great. Love you guys. I'm heading back to the beach (we're in California).

Congratulations! Everyone needs at least one little boy. I am way excited for you. Hey by the way do you talk to Karen much? When things calm down lets do lunch! Call me.

THAT IS THE BEST NEWS EVER! CONGRATULATIONS! I agree, Austin is only a "minor inconvenience". I applied for ANOTHER job in Mesa last week and they rejected me. The good Lord just wants us in Texas! We love it here, but we sure miss all y'all! Our family and our dearest friends. I love the name Maxwell by the way.

Jere, I am with you on the fear of raising a boy thing... it's all good, that is what uncles are for! Porter for your boy and Jeff on my side can teach them how to throw a ball around and do that kind of "stuff". You'll do GREAT! We'll have a support group.... Tyler can be President since he has two boys... THE ARTSY DADS RAISING BOYS CLUB!

We love you guys!
