I woke up this morning a bit more giddy than typical for a Monday. Today is a "normal" day, but this Thursday we have our 20 week ultrasound and get to find out just who has been swimming around in my womb for the past 18 weeks! On one hand, I can't believe it's already here, but on the other hand, I know each day of this week is going to drag by as I anticipate Thursday. I want to see this little one so bad, to make sure they are healthy first and foremost, but also to see that precious little profile, the little kicks and turns and maybe some thumb sucking:). And of course, those little parts that reveal our big surprise, the boy or girl news! We've had people ask us if we're going to wait til the birth to find out since this is number four, but I have to say, we've so enjoyed splitting the surprise between two dates in the past that we have no real desire to wait. I also love to name our kids at the 20 week ultrasound, this way we get to call them by name for the rest of the pregancy and feel like we know them just that much more when they actually get here.
We had a wonderful weekend with my mom this past weekend, she came for a fall visit. Lots of enjoying the outdoors, some Go Fish playing, watching movies, laughing and soaking in our time together. I also got the chance to take some "professional" pics of her and the kids, they turned out so great! I can't wait to get some with Connie and Lee and with Grandpa Dan too! Cousin Lupe had the idea that I should make a collag of all these pics with the grandparents for the kids bedrooms, great idea Lupe! Here are a sampling of the pics we took. And I'll be back on Thursday for our big announcement, so stay tuned:).
