Day 1 - Recent picture and 15 things about me

Day 1-Recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself

These are the most recent pictures I have of little ol' me. They aren't very good but it's all I've got. They are from Marie's wedding which was December 18th. I'm usually the one behind the camera so I don't make it into very many pictures. I guess I should work on that.  Since these pictures were taken I have chopped my hair to chin length and my baby belly has grown too.

15 interesting things about me:

1. I own my very own business. It's called Cantaloupe Corner and it is my favorite thing in the world, besides my family.
2. Instead of a sweet tooth, I have a sour tooth. I crave lemons, pickles, salt and vinegar chips, sour patch kids, and it gets a zillion times stronger when I'm pregnant.
3. I'm pregnant!!!!! We are expecting little boy #3 in May.
4. I get extremely obsessive about things that I really want to do. I have to learn everything I can about it and immerse myself into my current project. It drives Jeremiah crazy. It drives me crazy sometimes too.
5. I was a cheerleader for 7 years! Junior high through college.
6. I love to sing. I sing to my kids. I sing in the car and in the shower. I still have withdrawals from my high school and college show choir groups. Good times.
7. My hands are as big as Jeremiah's. They come in handy when I play piano or guitar.
8. I am attracted to very bright colors. I recently painted my boys' room lime green, blue and brown, and my office is orange! (I LOVE IT!)
9. I really really really want to go on an island vacation. Preferably to the Bahamas or Hawaii.
10. I have a phobia of deep water.
11. I am absolutely, positively, without a doubt, in LOVE with my boys. All of them!
12. Me and Jeremiah stay up really late at night playing Lego Indiana Jones on Xbox.
13. If I ever have free time, I love doing crossword puzzles or playing sudoku. They make me feel smart.
14. My super hero name is the Craft Maiden, (courtesy of Jeremiah and Karissa.) I fight crime with knitting needles, scissors, and the dreaded bedazzler.
15. My greatest hero in my life right now is my Grandma Udall. I want to be like her someday.

Now you know all about me. Lucky you.   :)

The results are in:

We are having a . . . .            

Yes! Baby Boy #3 will be joining our family in May!

I went to our ultrasound appointment today completely expecting to find out our baby was a girl. We brought our 2 boys with us and the ultrasound technitian first asked Simon if he thought the baby was a boy or a girl. Simon has been convinced for a while now that we are having a boy, so that is what he told her.
Simon was right!
She said that 4-year-olds are as accurate as the ultrasound machine! They can always call it!

 After all of the wishing for a little girl, I am actually sooooo happy that we have another little boy on the way. I was in complete shock for most of the day but now that it is sinking in I am so excited!!

Oh boy! We are going to have a house full of boys!
