Round Three

Photobucket

we're ready to pass along some news:
it's.... a....

As I've told family and friends the last few months, it seems I'm more surprised about this than anyone! Not that it was a surprise pregnancy. More like one day I was declaring my intention to wait another year and the next day everything changed and I felt strongly that it was time. Ready or not...he will be here early April!


I took the girls out tonight to take pictures with blue balloons and as my eyes filled with tears, I just couldn't keep it secret from them anymore. Justin started teaching the girls the word 'boy', and, well, that was one very excited little girl.

And one littler girl who cared more about the balloons.

Woo-hoo! Boys are fun! They're also super spontaneous--so watch out--you could have your baby in seconds! The trick may be to plan a crazy day, bake a chocolate cake, and fall asleep to the comforting aroma of chocolate. :)
Congrats, Ash--very exciting!

naw such a cute blog.

Congrats...that is very exciting!

HOW KILLER CUTE ARE THESE PHOTOS! I'm in LOVE with the first (actually all of them, but the first seems so perfect to me). Just simply adorable, plus the story it tells! Congrats to you and your family. Just in case you are wondering how a boy is after two girls and years of pink and tutus (I'm speaking from my own, scared to death of a boy experience)...it is wonderful, but it doesn't really hit until the doc hands you the baby. Then...you're head over heals for baby, and blue seems perfect. Congratulations, again.
