Just saw Dr. Lauri Klabi this week and baby is doing well. I heard the heartbeat and scheduled my appointment for the BIG ULTRASOUND! We find out if we are having a BOY or a GIRL on Friday, January 9, 2008 at 9am! (If baby cooperates!!)
To make it more fun, we are going to do a 50/50 drawing! $5 to enter, only one entry per person. You can guess BOY or GIRL and the winning group will be put in a hat and drawn out by Momma Steph! The winner gets 1/2 the money and the parents-to-be get to spend the other half on baby stuff! In order to enter, you MUST have your money to us by January 5th. We will announce the winner on the blog along with whether or not we will have a BOY or GIRL baby in June. (Of course, we will do a pool closer to the due date for date and time of delivery of new baby!)
I'm excited to have started clearing out the nursery (it had eBay stuff to sell and TONS of crafting stuff!) and getting ready for the holidays at the house.
Jerret is staying busy with finishing the basement and studying for his GMAT test. Please keep us in your prayers, as we are searching for an affordable daycare option in August, Jerret takes his GMAT test and applies to Grad school in January, and we want baby Batson to arrive safely.
We have a few more requests: our family members, health for friends and family, traveling over the holidays, Don to heal fully, baby Noah's life, Joanne's mission fundraising, Joan's heart, Sue, friendships at church, our marriage, Tatia's baby and being back to work, and our enemies.
PS, here is a picture that Jerret took while Steph tried on maternity clothes for the first time (plus, an additional belly! "This is what Steph will look like in 5 months", says Jerret!
