Happy Birthday Marc!

Today is Marc's Birthday! We enjoyed a delicious birthday dinner at Tepanyaki.
Preparing himself for the catching of the shrimp...

And now time for the gift. Marc has longed for this little piece of infomercial kitchenware for quite some time. And finally, today, his wish came true.

So, he got a blender for his birthday. I know, I feel bad for him too.
Thanks for being born babe! I LOVE LOVE LOVE you way more than there are blenders in the whole, wide, world and then some!

Words of the Future Father

Almond Joy's got nuts...

and so does my BABY!

That's right! We are having a BOY! The above picture is a not so great picture of the profile. Most importantly though, everything looks perfectly healthy!

P.S. Marc was so excited he almost threw up!

What a Day!

Ultrasound day and Marc's birthday! I made celebratory cupcakes for the occasion.
Waiting anxiously for the fun to begin

So now we move on to preparing for the little guy! I can't believe we still have to wait 4 1/2 more months!

Meet the Knapps. Well at least four of the six. We met this amazing family at church and became great friends just in time for them to move to California.

Over Memorial Day weekend we made a quick trip out to see them. These boys LOVE Marc. They were all over him for the entire three days that we were there. They wrestled, climbed trees, ran and jumped all over the place!

Marc is going to be an awesome dad as long as he can keep his energy level up.

We went to a place called Whitewater that used to be a fish hatchery and is now a place where you can camp, picnic or just walk around and feed the fish. It was beautiful.

Ruka was very interested in the fish. She got as close as she could without actually getting in the water. It was a hot day and she just plopped right down in the stream to cool off.

We had such a great time just hanging out with Tiffany and Joseph. We stayed up all night playing cards and talking. It was so fun!

Marc was a wonderful chauffeur. If I wasn't reading to him out loud I COULD NOT stay awake. Ruka and I weren't very entertaining traveling company. We both slept a lot. Here is a lovely picture of my belly with Ruka wrapped sleepily around it.
