OH BOY!

I apologize to my friends and family who keep waiting for me to say something new. I have become the worst blogger! I considered giving it up altogether because I have been doing such a bad job at posting and responding to friends. There are SO MANY people with blogs now that I can easily spend hours online flipping from one blog to another to another, and by the time I check in to see how everyone else is doing, I don't have time to post on my own blog. Surely I'm not the only who gets lost and overwhelmed in blogland. Lately I have been avoiding it-- not really intentionally. I've just been busy and have put it off because there's so much to catch up on.

We are all doing well. I am 18 weeks now and we learned last week, rather unexpectedly, at my 4 month appointment that we are having a BOY! We are all very excited, and a little surprised. Ava has been really funny about the whole thing, commenting on my growing tummy, and letting me know that she is "bigger" than the baby. Overall, she hasn't had much to say about having a brother, but on Saturday while we were in the car, she said, "I don't want a he, I want a she." I explained that God was giving us a baby brother, and he was going to be so much fun! Ava kept insisting that she wanted a girl instead. She got over it pretty quickly though, and is back on track for having a brother!

Quick review: We have travelled some in the past months. We enjoyed spending time with family in Decatur and visiting the Fort Worth zoo with cousins, had a fun and crazy visit with Julia and Heather at Julia's new house. We each have very strong willed first born girls who love each other, but each want to be in charge! We had our hands full! We also enjoyed a snowy Easter in Brownwood with family.

Enjoy some pictures and I promise I will try to do a better job posting more frequently.

Yea! So happy for you guys! Man, boys are so different than girls so hold onto your seat belt! They're a blast though. I don't think we can find out what we're having for another 5 weeks, but we may not find out this time. We'll see. I'm kind wishy washy about it and Buster DOES NOT want to know. Watch my blog in a few weeks and you'll see what we decided. Congrats to you and Chad. Andrea

Great pictures! I'm glad you posted. Don't feel guilty aout not posting for a while or not commenting on others' blogs. Just do it when you can and when you feel like it. I'm working on more names for this little boy!

We are so excited about you guys having a boy. I know you are too. Finally the ACU curse is broken. You look great! Can you belive we are half way done. I'm not sure I'm ready to have two running around. But I guess I'll have to be. Well you take care and I can't wait to introduce our two boys to the world.
