can’t get anything past you guys

Did you think I’d make you wait all weekend? I’m not that evil! =)

Due date is November 26th and we are THRILLED. Just ask Sarah. She’s insisting it’s a “gul” and a “titter” although sometimes it’s a “boy” and a “titter”. Huh. Anyway, yesterday we got to hear our little one’s heartbeat and even see a picture! He/she wouldn’t move at all though so all day yesterday Brent kept doing baby impressions that consisted of him lying on the bed in fetal position like a dead beatle. Nice.

Isn’t that unbelievable? The fact that they’re such perfectly formed human beings already at this stage just blows me away. We love you little one!
And for other things today that make me happy:
spent an hour and a half this afternoon talking to my very best friend from high school who I haven’t talked to in eight years. Miss you, friend.
– got one of the nicest blog comments ever the other day from “the Sarah bear” and it’s seriously kept me going all week. And, as bonus, I clicked on her blogger name and discovered these awesome shirts that she sells. For anyone who’s interested, I DO have a birthday coming up. =)
– going out tonight to an awesome little fondue restaurant tonight with 5 of my favorite people in the whole. wide. world. To celebrate ME. How cool is that? There’s nothing like starting your birthday celebration a good week in advance.
– my honey downstairs playing puzzles with the Pigbear.
baby Lily’s blog post about Sarah. Both of them.
my sister is making me a maternity gown for a friend’s wedding this summer. My sister rocks. And so do her sewing skills. And so does the fact that for this wedding we’re spending the weekend in Atlanta and leaving Sarah with her grandparents…FOR THE FIRST TIME. WOOHOO!
– you guys.

LOL — I’m the 51st commenter! 😉 I’m a lurker who has never actually had the guts to comment, but couldn’t resist today. CONGRATULATIONS! What awesome news. . . I know your little pig bear will be a fabulous big sister. From what I can see she’s a very sweet, nurturing little girl with lots of love to share with a brother or a sister! 🙂 Congrats again!

MarlaMay 24, 2007 - 9:10 pm

How exciting for you and your family, Erin!!! I can’t wait to get to know y’all better when you move. CONGRATS!!!

AngelaMay 27, 2007 - 10:54 am



I had to comment when I saw that your daughter is calling her new sibling “titter.” That is actually what my sister and I call each other–and have been for almost 20 years. It didn’t start when we were toddlers, either, just teenagers being silly–and it stuck. Now my children and my nieces and nephews know us as “Aunt Titter”s.

BTW, I’m here on your blog by way of the Larsons.

TinaJune 5, 2007 - 6:34 am

I am so very excited for you guys!!! Congratulations!!!

So now if you have a boy, I’m wondering if there will be any resemblance (you know what I mean 😉
Congrats again!!!

denise giseleJune 13, 2007 - 7:16 pm

Wow, it has been quite a while since I’ve visited here. Congrats on the happy news. I’m preg. with our first, due Nov 22nd. 😉 I hope the move went as well as it can go. I hate moving. Great photos on all the posts as usual. 🙂
