its a

Most of you have probably already heard by now...
But I wanted to make sure I shared it here too...................

Neil and I are being blessed with another little girl.  We are thrilled beyond belief.  We would have been happy either way, but I think deep inside we wanted another little girl.  And I think we've got her name picked out :-)  But I should probably keep it a secret for just a little while longer until I get a firm "yes" from the hubby (even though he's already calling her by name).

More important than the gender, she looks perfectly healthy.  She has a strong and well developed heart and aorta (148 bps).  The placenta looks great and her little cord is really thick and strong (must be all the dairy that I've been craving).  All her organs are as they should be.

We saw her sucking her thumb (ADORABLE), resting her head in her hands (must have been thinking some deep thoughts), crossing her feet (just like her big sister) and hiding from us.  I am so excited to see her personality because she already seems so different than little Layla.

And on that note...Here is clip Neil took of Layla at gymnastics on Tuesday.  This is typical for her...she is super competitive and has a hard time waiting her turn.  She's learning, but we think its hilarious to watch her in action--not waiting her turn.  This clip is where she is learning to do seat drops...poor little girl in purple didn't even see the red blaze coming.  And I swear Ms. Portia is a saint--the way she handles all those little girls...GEEZE, she is blessed with patience for sure.

First of all - I'm super excited about the new baby girl and so thrilled that she is healthy. The Lord is watching over that little one.

oh...not so patient Layla...how funny! I have to say -she maneuvered very calmly and without drama. You might have a sneaky girl on your hands. :) I love seeing her in her sparkly gymnast outfit - how adorable! :) I remember Ms. Portia from my gymnastics days. She has been there for a long time and still has so much patience. I love it!

Hey, I just watched your latest wedding video. It's beautiful! The way you filmed it, and the way there are stills mixed in -- to watch it mirrors how someone would recall it. It's like watching someone's memory. Beautiful job.
