We decided on a middle name! Her name is Harper Reese :)

I am currently in Charlottesville, VA right now and will be until the 30th. It is so beautiful here, and the weather is so mild compared to Texas....mid 80's most of the time. Fabulous! My 3 sisters and my 2 nieces left for DC yesterday and will be coming back today. I have been in Charlottesville babysitting my 2 three-year-old nephews, Charlie and Landon. They are 2 weeks apart and constantly argue most of the time. Oh. my. goodness. Thank you God with blessing me with only 1 baby for my first time! I don't know how you twin moms do/did it.

I miss Michael and my puppy :( I have been able to skype with them the past 2 nights which makes it a little better. I have never been away from them this long...and I still have a while to go. It IS nice being away from Lubbock though!

My mission when I get back to Lubbock is to find a full-time teaching position for the fall. Prayers would definitely be appreciated.

It's a............


Bring on the pink! Michael and I went in for a sonogram on Monday for the sole purpose of finding out the gender. As soon as the tech announced she was a girl, I turned to Michael and said, "I knew it!!" I always thought women were crazy for just "knowing" what the gender was. From the day I found out I was pregnant, I just knew she was a girl. Weird...but I knew.

I haven't scanned the pictures from the sonogram yet but will soon. As soon as I got out of my appointment, I hit the road for a month-long vacation! I got to Pflugerville around 11pm and spent the night at my friend Jennifer's house. I got to see her precious baby girls, Mallory and Kelby, and my friend Erin who is staying with her for a while.

Around lunch time on Tuesday, I went to La Madeline's for lunch (YUM!) and walked around IKEA for a little while. I absolutely LOVE that store. I wish there was one closer to Lubbock. I headed to my sister Misti's house in Bastrop to spend about a week there. I have been hanging out with Jordyn and Landon...going to swimming lessons, getting sno cones, and planning on a movie this afternoon.

I fly out Monday to VA for sister vacation until the 30th and then back to Bastrop until the 5th. That's what I call a vacation! I plan on doing some shopping for Harper :) I have already bought her 4 bows and an outfit. I seriously need to control myself.
