Boy or Girl?

That would now be the argument for the next 7 months around here. We will be awaiting the arrival of Baby #3! Of course, Elena votes "girl" and Kai votes "boy" although they both say that one of each as twins would be the best----aaaahhhhhh!

I'm just past 12 weeks give or take a couple days and just had my first doctor's appointment yesterday. We brought the kids into the room to hear the heartbeat and asked them to guess why there would be a heart beating in Mommy's tummy. They had no clue until Daddy gave them the hint. Kai promptly told the doctor that God makes hearts and is IN our hearts and He makes babies too! Elena just grinned really big.

This summer I've been hibernating in the air conditioning and sleeping away most of the afternoons. Add to that the lovely gift of 6 weeks of constant nausea and no one has seen much of me for awhile. Now I hope to slowly come back to the land of the living until they flop me on bed rest (pray that doesn't actually happen this time!).

If you are a good friend of mine thinking, why didn't she call me?...don't worry as I didn't call much of anyone past our parents and siblings! A post on facebook and now this & I'll let good ol' word of mouth work its magic!

Congratulations! How awesome. We are so excited for your family. You and Eric are great parents and adding another will only make your life that much richer. If you are keeping track, Eli thinks the baby is a boy. I'll be praying for you and the baby.
