I am getting my baseball team...

Well it is no secret that when I found out I was pregnant with Preston I right then and there prayed that I would have all boys. We just found out we are having baby boy #3 and we are so excited! I have never been a girlie girl and feared the drama and emotional roller coaster of having girls. I definitely am not patient with drama, am not into make-up, dress-up, and barbies. So maybe its a good thing I asked for all boys in the beginning! Don't get me wrong you can't help but want a girl...and experience being a mother of both. Everyone tells me I NEED a girl...and that boys are crazy! I guess when all you know is boys, you don't know any different. Now the older and wiser women tell me that boys are much easier and I should feel very blessed to never experience raising a teenage girl...which most fathers recall as hell on earth!

I have always enjoyed the boys and rarely had any close girl friends, I always hung with the boys, I love the outdoors, motorcycles, and playing hard. I really wanted a girl more for Jim so he could experience that Daddy/Daughter relationship. He claims he is okay without it, he didn't want to have to kill anyone so not having a girl eliminates that worry, lol. Well there you go, my confessions of why I may be a better mom to boys and my fears of having a girl. Many of you are thinking this my not be our last since we didn't get a girl...well...we are still planning on not having anymore...but will make sure it is the right choice before we make it permanent. Thank you to all our friends and for the many congrats! :)

Some highlights of the last few busy weeks getting settled in:
*I found an amazing OB doctor--for my last C-section I was a little nervous about who was going to leave me with my permanent scar, she will be wonderful!!
*Insurance coverage, seems silly but when you are mid-pregnancy and have to apply for insurance in another state...the process is a little scary.
*I have my ultrasound Wednesday and can't wait to know what we are having whatever it is I will feel so blessed to have them as part of our family, I can't help but want a girl just a little bit!
**Last item about the pregnancy I am no longer nauseated at all, YAHOOO!!!
*Grandma Joclyn got us a year family plus pass to the Zoo, the boys have loved going and it has been a special treat to go anytime. She also surprised us with a new BBQ!
* I LOVE LOVE having Sean here--having my best friend around (besides Jim) makes outings so much more fun!
*We enjoyed a great weekend at Saturday market, with amazing Gyros, (in my opinion the perfect meal), played along the waterfront, watched the dragon boats, and strolled the streets of downtown.
*We have picked up where we left off with BBQ's with friends--I am so thankful to enjoy a great backyard and deck for BBQ and awesome friends.
*Our new ward is interesting, I won't tell you the name for fear of offending people but I feel like we are attending a retirement communities reunion. Sunday school is like a peanut is interesting. I can honestly say I have never witnessed anything like it, amusing.
*I got my 1st new extra large capacity Maytag washer and dryer stacked set I left in Idaho I hated the darn things they did tiny loads, the drums needed serviced often...a total pain.
*I am planting my 1st garden, and flower pots for the front porch. I am excited to see how it does...we always had awesome gardens growing up!
