It's a.....

Here's the stroy...
I went to the doctor at 4:00....  I had been counting down the hours all week.  Jason had to do an emergency root canal and was SO worried he was going to miss it.  Little did we know we would be waiting on my doctor for over an hour because he got called to the hospital to do a delivery!  I sat in the waiting room as nervous as I could be.  I couldn't quit bouncing my legs, or talking to Jason saying "TALK to me!!!  I'm so nervous!!!" and I also discovered I now had HUGE sweat rings under my arm pits (I took a picture but didn't post it because it was GROSS!)....  They finally called my name and did all my blood work and Dr. Cole FINALLY walked through the door.  
Within the first few seconds I saw on the ultrasound what looked like girl parts (yes, I've done my research and knew what to look for), but Dr. Cole didn't say anything, so I thought well, maybe I'm wrong.  After he checked some measurements and stuff he went back to the legs (very LONG legs- are we sure this is MY baby???) and "her" legs were crossed.  He started bobing up and down at my belly to try to get "her" (still getting used to saying "her"...) to open her legs.  I said "It BETTER open it's legs!  I've been waiting for this forever!".  Dr. Cole finally said something like, "It looks like a girl".  I think I said "NO WAY" and he asked if I didn't want a girl.  I said NO, I just have thought it was going to be a boy!  He said well it looks like it's a girl, It's about "80% probable"....  I said "Dr. Cole!  What am I to do with "80% probable?????" LOL.  He ended up changing it to 90% :)  I was so excited and gave him a really big hug :)  Jason and I left with big smiles and in disbelief.

One of my two favorite moments of "telling family and friends" that it's a girl was when I called my mom.  She was at work and when I told her she said "I just ran out of the lab with my clothes on that aren't supposed to leave the lab with spinal fluid, urine and blood splashed on them but I don't care because I can't believe you're having a GIRL!!!  And of course she was crying while saying all of this!  She by far was the MOST surprised (well, besides me).  Saying she is happy is an understatement!  
My second favorite moment was when Jason told his parents.  When he said the words "We're having a little girl", I started crying immediately.  It was the first time I heard him say those words and it was surreal.  

I feel great today.  But I do have to be honest.  I called my mom last night and cried because "it's NOT a boy".  I think she thought I was crazy.  I need you to understand that I am not sad it's a girl, I'm very happy and was secretly hoping for a girl.  BUT what is so sad to me is that I've had it in my head all this time that it was going to be a boy and I've been so excited to dress "him" in Kohen's old clothes.  It makes me sad to think that I won't have a baby wear his clothes again (Yes, I'm done having kiddos after this one!).  It's hard enough for me to pack away clothes and toys that Kohen has outgrown.  It made it bearable to know that my new baby would be wearing them.  BUT, with that being said.....  I have no doubt that my sadness will be completely washed away when I buy my first PINK onesie!!!!!!!  YAY!  I can't wait!!!!!  I also told my mom that I would have also cried if it was NOT a girl too....  so basically, I'm very hormonal and emotional no matter the situation!
I hope I don't leave you thinking I'm disappointed, because I couldn't be happier.  I love my baby girl and am so glad that Kohen will have a little sister he can protect from all those mean boys :)  Forget those boys having to go through Jason to get to her.... they'll have to deal with her Momma.

Marchl 30, 2011 @ 4:00pm

I can barely contain my excitement.  I've been having diarrhea all day (and yes it's only 10am) because I'm so nervous/excited about finding out the sex of our baby today!!!  I thought March 30, 2011 at 4pm would NEVER come!  And who knows....  the world could end before 4:00 and I could never know what I'm having...

Like I've said all along, I still think it's going to be a boy.  I will be VERY excited if it is.  I can't wait to wash and hang up Kohen's old clothes.  If it's a girl I will probably faint.  I'm just ready to KNOW!!!  Either way, I am soooooooooooo excited!  I'll keep you updated!

Lovin Life

My son.... the dentist :)

We have had SO much fun playing outside lately in this nice weather!

This is our next door neighbor, Ashton.  Kohen and Ashton are about 4 months apart.  They LOVE playing together!

He always has his tongue out!

Daddy having fun throwing Kohen in the air...

Next day....  playing outside with Ashton again :)

Sweet boys!  We look forward to these two growing up together.  

Jump time!  Kohen and Ashton on the trampoline...

Later that day, we headed to the golf course....

(Jason doesn't usually wear scrubs to the golf course.... he worked earlier this day)

We forgot to bring Kohen's golf clubs, so after he was trying so hard to hit the ball using Jason's clubs, we ended up going back to get his clubs....

Kohen was watching his Daddy very closely and doing just like his Daddy did!

I think these boys could stay out here all day!

One of Kohen's favorite things to do... feed the ducks!  

These are my two favorite ducks.  They are there, in the same spot, everyday.  We drive up and stop our golf cart and they immediately come out of the water and waddle up to us :)

I was getting ready for bed last night and I saw Dentin sitting there and I thought he looked so pretty, so I took a few pics.  He desperately needs another haircut...  I can't believe my "first born" is about to be 8 years old!  I love you Dentin!!!

16 weeks preggo

I lay awake at night thinking about if "it" will be a boy or girl.  We find out on March 30, 2011 at 4:00pm what the sex is.  I'm about 99.9% sure it's a boy.  I find myself thinking about Kohen's little newborn outfits and how excited I am to be able to use all of his clothes again....  I wonder what in the world I'm going to do in the new nursery that won't make Kohen jealous that it's not his room- so pretty much that includes trains, planes and automobiles....

I'm starting to feel a little better.  I still have days of nausea, fever and exhaustion, but at least there are fewer days like that.  I am starting to show.  It makes me happy this time.  It freaked me out a little the first time around, but now that I already have the stretch marks and flabby belly from my first pregnancy, it's not as big a deal for my belly to grow! 
I washed and hung up all of my maternity clothes recently.  I'm a little worried about how they're going to fit this go around....since I had my breast reduction....  I may not be able to fill them up like I used too!  THAT will be a GOOD thing! lol

I'll leave you with this picture....Kohen is ALL boy!

What's in a Name?

This is a picture of Jason's Grandfather.  Theodore Pryor Smith.  This is also where Kohen gets his middle name!  I think it is AMAZING how much Jason and his grandfather look alike!  The picture is copied on a copy machine, so it's not very clear....

This is what Jason's Dad wrote about this picture:  "Dad, as a young man, I believe around 16 years old. He would conquer the art of guitar playing and go on to form his own band and tour mostly south Arkansas.  He and his band played on live radio at the grand opening of KELD radio station in El Dorado.  He could have gone on and made it big in Nashville, TN, but he chose instead to stay in Dallas County and raise a big family.  For this I'll be forever grateful."  -James H.
