It's a Boy!

Yep! Baby number 2 is on the way, and Ella is going to be a big sister to a little brother! Tom and I are VERY excited! When the nurse first did the ultrasound, she said it was a little girl...but then as she was looking around she changed her mind and said, "Nope! Definitely a boy!" Maybe he's just a little shy ;) Tom is SUPER excited to have a little man around the house. Now he'll have someone to watch football with! :) The babys name will be Thomas Rex ("Rex" after my dad) and his nickname can be T-Rex! Tom says thats what we'll put on all his jerseys. ;)

So far all my Dr.'s appointments have been going well (all two of them! haha!) The ultrasound looked good and all my blood levels are normal, so that's nice. I had kind of weird impressions of my Dr. the first time I met him, but yesterdays appointment went much better and I really like him. So that's a relief :) As for the pregnancy in general, it has been going pretty well. I have been SUPER tired and there are days of just general discomfort and nausea, but overall...not too bad!

Everything else is going pretty well. Ella is NOT doing very well potty training and it is kind of frustrating. Hopefully she'll pick up on it soon...everyone is sick of changing dirty panties. Ew...much worse than dirty diapers.

That's about all that is new for us, though. We were in Utah this last weekend for Baby Kyle's first birthday. It was super fun! You can see pictures on Barbara's blog. Ella did pretty good traveling - it is about an eleven hour car ride, so we watched LOTS of movies and tried to get her to sleep through a lot of it! We were glad to be home, though...for sure.

Hurray! Boys are lots of fun! And I'm glad you've already got jerseys covered, that's super crucial. :) Good to hear that you are feeling well, too!

It was fun having you guys over! Thanks for coming! Congrats on the little boy! Boys are fun! I am excited for you. I think we are having another boy too, but you never know. :) I am excited either way!

YAY! Huge congrats!! So exciting. I'd love to get together! Where are you at? We are in Manhattan Beach just for the rest of the week, but we should be back in about a month for a lot longer. I hope all is well. Ella just keeps getting cuter!!

A boy?! Yea!!:)
I hear it's fun to have a girl first since they tend to be so motherly towards the new sibling. Ella will have fun teaching him all about the world. :)

Congratulations!

When I saw that his nickname was going to be 'T-Rex', I felt just like Ricky Bobby when Cal tells him that he's now 'The Magic Man. Now you see me...now you don't.' I was upset because I was so jealous at how cool it is.

Congratulations!

Congratulations!! Wow, a boy, that'll be so fun, can't wait to see who he'll look like- you're lucky because because now you know you'll at least have one of each! Good luck picking out a boy name though, that's hard...

oh wait, HA! Read the post too fast and just saw that you already have a name- that's what I get for not reading carefully...but T-Rex? Ha! I love it!
