Baby

We made the trip to Grand Rapids this morning despite terrible roads and weather conditions! We made it safely there, thank goodness! The baby looks great, growing appropriately, weighing in at a whole 13 ounces! I did not find out if it's a boy or girl. The girl doing the ultrasound did do a gender shot though and typed either "Boy" or "Girl" on the picture and put it in an envelope for Matt. I gave him the envelope when we got home and he looked at it when he left (so I didn't see a reaction either). When he returned home he put it in a new envelope for me, just in case I change my mind, and I put that in my dresser drawer. It's been over 6 hours and I haven't given in and peeked yet! We'll see how long I last, I'm quite suprised I've made it this far, it's so contrary to my normal personality!

Bailey, Elliot and I are off to have dinner for Matt's mom's birthday tonight and Matt and Landon are going to play basketball at church with some of Landon's friends (if anyone shows up)! I still have some christmas shopping to do, hopefully I can get out tomorow!

Do you honestly expect me to believe that you still haven't peeked??? I want that envelope when I get home. I could have fun with knowing and you not. :-) Oh the games I could play with your head. haha SOOOOOO glad that everything looked good on the ultrasound- that is what is really important.

You better rip that envelope up or you are going to torture yourself!

I had them do that when I was pregnant with Amber and I opened the envelope on the way home from the ultrasound!! Good for you for lasting this long, I'm glad everything looks good! Have a great Christmas.
