It's A GIRL!!!

So, most everyone already knows that A) I am preggo and B) Shes a GIRL! But, I still, for my family's memory, want to make sure I document all about this pregnancy...

Its been a rough one so far! I am 20 weeks and still puking. Still tired. Still nauseated all the time. And pretty much feel like I am stuck in my first trimester :) But, I have resorted to the fact that every pregnancy is different, and this one will just be hard! It is OK though becuase Im sure that cute and precious little face will make it all worth it...

Now, on to the fact that 'she' is, in fact, a girl.. I have to say I am really more excited than I thought I would be. I always saw myself as the mom of all boys, so I never really thought about what it would be like to have a girl. Being a girl myself, you would think I would be comfortable with having one! But contrary to what you might have thought, I am scared to death! I really dont know why, but having a daughter is so crazy! I am so excited, though.. I was actually REALLY excited when the ultra sound tech said "ITS A GIRL!"

This will be such a fun adventure, and I am SO excited to see Jeff with a little girl.. plus I can't wait to see what she looks like.. will she look like daddy? me? her big brother? Hopefully her big brother.. he is beautiful!

Speaking of JJ, he is going to be such a good big brother! We still havent quite conviced him that she is a girl, but he will soon find out that he is not having a brother!! And by the way.....

JJ IS POTTY TRAINED!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are SO proud if him.. He has been a tough one and really stubborn about it, but one day he woke up and he decided that he wanted to be a big boy and not wear pull ups anymore, so he just did it! We went and bought him some awesome spiderman and Trandformers undies, and away he grew :( He still wears pull ups and night, which he is not happy about at all, so we have to comprimise and put his underwear OVER the pull ups.. I told him one day he will be able to wear big boy undies at night time, but not until he can wake up at night and go potty. Needless to say, we are very proud of our big boy!!

Jeff is officially a college student. He is at school 5 days and week and works 40 hrs (AND MORE) a week, and he is in Young Mens! He is one busy boy ;) We are so proud of him and what is he sarificing for our family. He is such a good example to our kids and neices and nephews and even the boys at church. Those boys LOVE him and I think he feels the same!

I finally got a calling. I am over the womens sports in the ward. So that has me pretty busy two or three nights a week. I also recently got my hours cut at work, which has turned to be a blessing. It has taken a lot of stress off of me, and I feel like I have time to actually be a momma and a wifee :)

All in all we are doing so good.. BUSY, but good! We are just trying to keep up with day to day life and still remember that being with each other as a family is the most important thing, so we are really making an effort to have weekly Family Home Evening, JJ is finally old enough (HES OUR BIG SUNBEAM NOW!!) to know what a lesson is, and I think it is a really good thing for our family right now with how hectic our schedules are. Thats all for now...Happy Blogging!
