guess what!?!!!

guess what?!!!!!!!
guns, airplanes, helicopters, farm, dirt, sports, woods....
we are having a BOY!!!

we are all very excited, and personally- in disbelief!
boys are so foreign to me, growing up in a family with all girls- what in the world am i suppose to do with a boy? YIKES. 

gabe is thrilled.
"i've always wanted a son. i hope he is just as crazy as me............ but makes better decisions" - gabe


look how big he is!...
cannon doesn't seem to thrilled.... maybe he is jealous he won't be an only child anymore? 
poor little guy.

now we can start thinking of names!!

bambino update.

@ our last doctors appointment (17th week) we were planning on finding out the gender of the baby... however, when we were doing the ultrasound, we saw that the baby was sleeping with its legs crossed, and wouldn't wake up. so, the doctors couldn't tell us for sure what the gender is. so we have to wait until our next appointment on the 25th! 

we were bummed, but my sisters text made me smile:


thought that was a good perspective. 
our little bambino is already like BOTH of us. 
makes my heart happy!





january getaway.

hilton head & charleston south carolina were our stops for our little january getaway.
we started off january right- together, and in warmer weather. 

while we were in hilton head, we visited the salty dog cafe, which brought back so many childhood memories! my family use to vacation on hilton head for years, we loved the bike paths, the privacy, the quiet little town. it was so fun to visit it again, and show gabe around!

charleston, also pretty, but very different. more of a quaint little city feel, it actually reminded me of alexandria, va. the brick roads, the waterfront, the homes so close together, but each having so much charm. and... amazing food!

it was a fun little getaway, and filled with relaxing moments!
great way to start 2012.

the beginning.

ringing in the new year is always a fun thing to do, no matter where you are, or who you are with. 
it is the beginning of a new chapter, a fresh start, a new time, and it is exciting. 

but, this year we had the privilege of getting to celebrate with some wheaton college friends in atlanta!
we had such a fun time catching up, getting to know each other (each other's wifes and husbands) and then getting to start 2012 together!






hello twenty twelve! 
happy you are here!
