Rain Rain Rain!

Why hello there, Alex. :) Your rain bands look mighty fierce.

I opened my eyes
and looked up at the rain
And it dripped into my head
and flowed into my brain
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand-
I might overflow.
So pardon the wildly crazy things I just said-
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.

Shel Silverstein

This is a poem that I often think of when I hear the rain falling against our roof. Rain is one of my favorite things, but I don't like many of the other elements that come with Tropical Storms and Hurricanes.

Stay dry today, if you can, my friends!

Oh, BOY!!!!!!!

Here is the video that my brother put together really quickly before he jumped on a plane for D.C. He didn't get everyone who was there, but he got a good number of people. Thanks for the great video, bro! It was super fun seeing everyone's predictions. :)

We are so honored that the Lord has chosen us to shephard two little boys. He knows what our family needs and we couldn't be more thankful and excited. Continue to pray for good health for us all and a healthy delivery! November 4th will be here before you know it.

Now I am excited to start planning his space explorer room, praying over a name, and getting out all of Wesley's sweet, precious little baby clothes.

In honor of Baby Boy Dos, I changed the blog background to space :)

We are so blessed by the turn out of the party last night. Over FORTY people were there and we went through nearly 200 slices of pizza. :) I would have ordered a bigger cake, had I known. But a giant shout out to Jamie for bringing cupcakes and ice cream, and Judith for bring cupcakes! Those were all gobbled down and I was lucky to steal one of Jacob's. :) It was a great night. And thank you to my parents who brought the many pizzas to feed the masses. Oh, and I'm sorry about the crazy space blue drink that was served. Haha. Dave said he may have lost a tooth to the sugar. Woops. :) I didn't taste it when I made it. My bad!

My dad leaned over and said "all these people are here just to find out if the baby is a boy or girl????" I think people were a little hot and sweaty (we seriously had one of the hottest days of summer so far) and crammed in our tiny cottage, but it was a blast. And we were overwhelmed with the love and encouragement. And Wesley was a trooper! Running around, playing host. :)
I love my boys!
Thank you , Lord!

What do YOU think Baby Dos is??

Okay, so I realize we have been MIA from the good ol blog for a few weeks now. I can NOT believe June is already halfway through....nearly over! Woops. I have some serious catching up to do on EVERYTHING, but am thankful for the experiences that we've been a part of in the past weeks that has lead to my slacking off.

The big reveal :) We are so pumped! We had a beautiful, wonderful, super fun Monday morning (bright and early so Nate could be there) Sonogram and Dr.'s check up. It was great. Saw little baby dos in the womb (on the "tv") and saw baby dancing around. It was wonderful to see. We keep asking Wesley is he's having a baby brother or a baby sister and he keeps saying "baby". When we press the issue further he constantly changes his mind. Haha....definitely my kid. Definitely.
So, as most of you know, we did NOT find out what we were having. Oh, the sono lady could tell, she just put the gender down inside a top secret envelope and we tucked the dvd and pictures away so that we wouldn't peek during our two day "wait" period. Tomorrow (Wednesday) we are having our "REVEAL" party to share in the knowledge and excitement with some of our family and friends.

Right after the sono, me and Wes and my mom went to see this lady and give her the "top secret" envelope and instructed her to bake a plain cake with white icing on the outside and on the inside have a filling of either pink or blue icing, depending on the gender. :) I had to explain myself a few times for her to really get what I meant. Apparently I run in circles when I explain things. Woops. She finally caught my drift, and excitedly agreed that it was a really fun idea and she wants to see pictures of the "big reveal".

So tomorrow evening we will be sharing with the world what little baby dos is. I am so excited! If it's a boy, I'm completely excited to pull out all of Wesleys little baby things and start planning his space room and preparing for another little ant catcher.
If it's a girl, I am completely excited to begin a new adventure and get girly things and paint tulips around the bottom of her room.

Little Dos @ 20 weeks, 4 days gestation

It's going to be wonderful. The best news of all is that the baby is healthy, growing well, moving a lot (and i mean a LOT) and is beautiful. I am continuing to pray for a healthy pregnancy (halfway there), a healthy delivery and a healthy, healthy baby.

So what do you think Baby Dos is??? So far, I've gotten about a half dozen for BOY and about 2 for GIRL :) Nathan keeps saying "It's gotta be one or the other" hahaha

Hey World

Hey! Yes, we are still here. It's just been a crazy 2 weeks. Lots of birthday (mine) madness, crazy weather, mild nausea (ha ha) and work work work.

Promises, promises, yes, and update is coming soon. With pictures and laughter and love galore.

For now, I'll leave you with one of my most favorite latest pictures of my little adventurer:

How I love his sweet ways.
