We closed on our house on Thursday. It was a little stressful leading up to the actual closing (James dealt with it more than I did since I was teaching all day) but it all ended up okay. We are excited to start slowly moving things into the house and then we will move the big stuff the first weekend in June. We will post pictures soon!! We don't get possession until today at 5:00 p.m.

We're excited about the long weekend and I'm looking forward to my last day of school on Thursday. If I'm done with all of my check out stuff that day I don't have to go in on Friday! Yay! My goal is to make it to the end of the year party at 3:00 on Thursday and not to have to go back to school.

Have a great weekend!

We are in love!

We were so surprised to hear, "It's a boy." The whole experience was very surreal! We were in the ultrasound room for about 45 minutes and seriously saw every organ and part of our baby boy's body. It was truly amazing. Some things we could really see and some things we just said, "okay, that's the femur." Our sweet baby boy is very active and the ultrasound technician told us that he was very squirmy. It was almost like he was trying to hide. During the ultrasound we saw the profile of his face but he was moving around too much to get really good pictures. His little feet are so cute. The best thing is that his development is perfect, his heart rate is good, and his size is good. He is 12 ounces, the size of a can of soda.

James and I really thought we were having a girl for some reason. Thank you Laurie for the fun name website. We have already spent awhile on it playing around. It's difficult to pick boy names now because we had two that we loved but I know we will find the perfect name by September.

We close on our house next Thursday and will slowly start moving our stuff over to the new house. In the meantime, I'm shopping for a boy. :)
