And the baby is a ....


Good news! Boy or girl is good news. The baby is healthy and that is truly a blessing. But we are having a girl and that makes everyone at our house excited. Elise is especially thrilled. Gavin would liked to name her "Beach." We'll see if we can't come up with another name. She was very active for the ultrasound and was busy sucking her thumb and yawning. We look forward to her arrival in November.

On another note - Kenyon had his central line/catheter put into his chest today. It went pretty smoothly. Unfortunately he had a lumbar puncture (spinal tap) on Tuesday and he has been miserable. He does ok if he is laying flat but that isn't any fun. The doctor said he would do something on Monday to fix it. That doesn't really do me any good because he will be admitted to the hospital on Monday anyway. Lame! Oh well.

Yay! Congratulations. Baby girls are so fun. Why are there so many more cute girl clothes than boys clothes?

YIPEEEE!!! Congrats, and I love that she was sucking her thumb, how cute. When I told Olivia that Josh was a boy she threw her backpack across the floor and went in the corner and cried. That was the one and only time I was a little glad I wasnt having another girl:) Just kidding........kind of

Oh, and I hope that Kenyon has a great weekend and feels better.

Congratulations! Babies are wonderful. Sam still says things like "when I get my baby brother" I had to break it to him that-he mostly likely, almost postivley is not getting a baby brother or another sister, ha ha-We had the sex talk a few weeks ago and Natalie says "But you and dad make the babies, so why not?" Good luck to your hubby! Check out the picture on my blog and see if you can name anyone.

I feel Kenyon's pain post lumbar puncture. The docs did a blood patch on me, it works like a charm. Tell him to stay flat (I know, not fun but it works.) Beach is a great name, you already have a Sailor in the family, go with it.

Oh Annie I forgot to tell you that Beach is a great name....Grace Griffith informed me the other night that they are naming their baby Carls Jr. so our ward is going to have great names, I love it.
