It's a GIRL!!!!!!!!

A couple of days ago we found out that we are having a baby girl. We couldn't be more excited! I had no idea what we were having but I couldn't be happier. This is my second ultra sound this pregnancy (the first was when I was 7 weeks) and I am so happy I got it done. Since I haven't been to the doctor very often it didn't seem real but being able to see her little hands and feet and her little heart beating was truly awesome! They said that she is right on target and we should still expect her around the first week of April.
I usually think 3d ultra sound pictures are scary and wrong but I think my little girl is very photogenic. She is snuggling in the first picture and the second is a good profile shot.

Andrew loves:

-To look at himself in the mirror. If he is ever cranky or in a bad mood just take him to a mirror and he gets a huge grin on his face. I think he knows just how cute he is.

-Fake sneezing. He just started this the other day, he thinks this is really funny

-His life size toy aka: Nick. He especially loves putting things in Nicks mouth just to watch Nick project them to the other side of the room.

-Bananas. If I would let him he would eat a whole banana in one bite. (this could really go for any food)

-His Elmo and Abby book. I got this at my shower and I wish I could remember who gave it to him. He loves it! It is one of the only things that will distract him on our long plane rides.

-Big kids, especially his cousins who can always make him laugh.

-Playing in the front seat of the car. He thinks he is so cool when he does this.

-Sippy cups. He is officially off the bottle

I saw this quote on my friend Liz's blog today and I started crying (emotional much??) because I truly found the man that Present Hinkley spoke of and I couldn't be more thankful or more happy than I am today.

"Girls, Aim high, but do not aim so high that you totally miss the target. What really matters is that he will love you, that he will respect you, that he will honor you, that he will be absolutely true to you, that he will give you the freedom of expression and let you fly in the development of your own talents. He is not going to be perfect, but if he is kind and thoughtful, if he knows how to work and earn a living, if he is honest and full of faith, the chances are you will not go wrong, that you will be immensely happy...True love is not so much a matter of romance as it is a matter of anxious concern for the well-being of one's companion."

Happy Halloween

This year Andrew had two great costumes, Yoda and Dumbo. We had a trunk or treat at church on Friday night and decided that Yoda would be the best choice because Andrew could move/walk around in it more freely. It took him awhile to get used to my black hair but once he did he started having the best time. I was so surprised that he kept his little ears on the whole night, he must have forgotten about them. He was so happy the whole night chasing after the bigger kids. I think he thinks that he is really 3 or 4 because he would just get right in with the older kids and follow them around. It was the cutest thing. There was an older boy (around 5) who was also Yoda, and the boy told Nick that he just wanted to hug the other Yoda so much! (how cute is that)

On Saturday Nick had to go into school in the morning, so Andrew and I met him at school and we walked to Newbury St (for those of you who don't know it is a street with lots of fun shops and restaurants) We grabbed a bit to eat and got stopped constantly with people telling us that we have the cutest kid. (like we didn't know) For Saturday we dressed Andrew in his Dumbo outfit.
Beautiful fall leaves on Mass. Ave a couple of streets up from Nicks school.
