Amber and Emi came to visit from Kentucky, and we had a blast! My favorite part was going to Quilted Bear with a fellow craft connoisseur. Hayden loved having a playmate from sun-up to sun-down. Since they've left, he has asked several times, "Where's Emi?"

While they visited, Amber used her professional camera to take some pictures:

(Amber edited some of Hayden's pictures. There are doubles of most pictures, because I couldn't decide if I liked the vintage brown look or the rustic blue. I included both so grandparents could get a new desktop picture.)


Hayden was upset because I asked him to smile.

I call this one "BLUE STEEL"





I think he looks like a WHO from WHOVILLE in this picture with his big teeth and scrunched nose. But even Cindy Lou Who was super adorable with her big buck teeth and scrunched little nose.

My favorite!

A Sexy Cologne Commercial?

Another WHOVILLE look (It's his new FAKE smile).


Thank you Amber for taking such cute pictures and for taking the time to edit them. We miss you already.

Baby Girl Ultrasound!

On Thursday morning, we found out that we will be welcoming a healthy baby GIRL on July 18th! We are so excited!!
It was a wonderful experience to see our beautiful little girl. And I think Hayden finally realized what was really going on inside mommy big tummy. On the way to the doctor he kept on saying, "Going to the doctor to fix Mommy's tummy." Now when we ask he says, "There's a baby in Mommy's tummy." And then he asks to see it. :)

Here are some ultrasound pictures of our little girl:

Video Footage of the Ultrasound:

(I had a really hard time downloading the video to iMovie and Blogger, so only part of the video plays. The best part, which does not play, is when the Ultrasound Tech tries to get a picture of the boy/girl parts. The little stinker wouldn't open up her legs, so the Tech wiggled and wiggled. Finally, we got a shot and sure enough it was a little girl. Daddy was super proud and said, "Any time now, you can say 'You were right'." and Mommy teared-up!
