Lullaby, and good night...

...go to sleep  little babies.

What a sweet picture of two sisters who love each other sooooo much they can't stand to be a part - even at bedtime! This would warm any mother's heart... don't you think???


This was them pretending to be sound asleep so that I would walk out of the room and leave them in there ALONE! Their plan? As soon as I was away from the room they could get up and play or stay up all night talking and giggling. Nevermind that this picture was taken NOT EVEN A MINUTE after they had spoken to their daddy on the phone. They must think I just fell off the tamale truck!

And of course the little one had to join in. Monkey see, monkey do! ;)

The Evidence

I had trouble posting this picture with the previous blog entry... but here it is. What you are viewing is a shot from the bottom looking up. If you can imagine - it's as if you are changing a diaper.


Oh boy!

It's a boy!!
I had an ultrasound on April 1st (I KNOW! I KNOW! April Fool's Day!). =) The technician was very fast and very good at what she does!! I was afraid that we wouldn't even be able to tell because she seemed in such a rush. She asked if we wanted to know the sex of the baby and we said YES! LOL She said... and you have two girls? I said, "No, three." She looked over the exam table and said, "Oh, I didn't see the little one. Well this one better be a boy then! OH! It is!" Juan and I: "IT IS??" She said, "Oh yea! See that little spot right there... that's the tip." =( Why do they always ask me that??? SEE THAT? NO!!!! I'm a horrible mother who can never make anything out on those things!!! Ugh! So, of course, I said, "Oh yea, I see it." Lies!! Then she moved toward the bottom of my belly to get a glimpse from the bottom up and said, "OH YEA that's a boy!" Again - I'm looking at it thinking Lady, you better know what you're talking about it cause all I see is black and white blobs. So she showed me the hips and the legs, then the tall tale! I was happy that at least I knew what I was looking at. Of course, Juan made sense of it all right away. =/

But, to be completely honest, I had only made out "part of it." I was happy with that much because at least I knew that I had never seen that in the girls' ultrasounds AND I knew that Juan and, especially, the tech had been very sure of what they saw. UNTIL last week. I took the ultrasound pictures to a Bible Study I have with some friends to show off MY SON! Before they arrived I studied the picture again when it hit me!!!! And I was able to see the whole thing and make sense of it! SOOOOO... It's a boy!!!
