Boy or Girl? In two weeks we'll know!

I'll admit it, seeing as how my last post was about Halloween, I have been a horrible blogger. But I'm hanging out tonight with Ben at the law school while he tries to get some work done, so it's time for a new blog post! Most of you know that Ben and I are expecting our first baby on July 30th. For those of you who didn't know, now you do. (See pic above for proof) We are so excited and anxious to start this next chapter of our lives and become parents. In two weeks we find out if the baby will be a boy or a girl, but I have had 3 dreams that it's going to be a boy, so I would be very shocked if it was a girl. My mom has also had a dream about us having a baby boy, but we will be happy either way. Today I bought a beautiful crib and dresser/changing table from a lady in my parents' neighborhood, and the more things we start to get, the more real it all starts to seem. I am now 18 weeks pregnant which is about 4 1/2 months for those not familiar with pregnancy timelines. I am starting to poke out a little, but not enough that people are asking if I am pregnant or not yet. I'll admit I have been taking those "weekly" photos, but I may not be posting those for the whole world to see. So far I have had a fairly easy pregnancy, with hardly any sickness. Lately I have been feeling so blessed with so much love and support from family and friends. Last weekend Ben and I went to Midland and saw a lot of his extended family, and his cousins threw me a surprise baby shower! It was so unexpected and wonderful, and it made me realize how lucky we are to have so many awesome people in our lives. :) Thank you. You know who you are.

Time now for guesses! Boy or girl? The day we find out is March 15th! (I'll ask on facebook when it gets closer)
