We're having a.....

....Okay so those of you who have talked to me in the last few months know that I really struggled with deciding whether or not we were going to find out the gender of our baby. Man was it hard for me to decide. Chris was indifferent and that honestly made it worse for me, so at one point I decided I was absolutely not finding out, then I made the mistake of talking to my sister Shannon and she has this strange power over me.... she can change my mind on anything, she's just so darn persuasive. Here's an example: my car, I decided to buy a car when I was 20 and my dad, sister and I went car shopping, I loved the Oldsmobile Allero but the dealership only had a black one and in the heat that's not the best color, so I test drove a white grand am and I wasn't really feeling the car. Shannon on the other hand LOVED it, so she started telling me all the wonderful features, etc. and by the end of the day I bought the grand am. My car's okay but I don't love it, but at least Shannon does :) hahaha.
That story aside, after talking to Shan, I started to think I would find out on my first child. so on Tuesday afternoon we found out we're having a ...drum roll...baby boy!!! I would post images from the ultra sound but she really only got pictures of his wee wee, I thought it was comical that I got like 4 pictures of his thingy and then 2 of his foot and that was about it :) don't be jealous ;)
Now Chris and I are trying to agree on names and packing up our apartment for our big move at the end of the month. I get exhausted just thinking about moving. We both started our fall semesters this week so we've got a lot going on.
I am also proud to say that I finish a quilt last week while I was in St. George, yay!!!
