GIRL!!!

We had an ultrasound on Tuesday morning. We took a card with us and asked the technician to write down – boy or girl. That card sat in my purse, which was in my car, for the day. But surprisingly enough, the temptation to peek wasn’t there.

Later that day, we meet with our photographer, December Orpen, for the gender reveal. We also brought with us two bouquets of balloons. One bouquet said “Baby Boy” and the other said “Baby Girl”. We turned our backs to December. She opened the card, read the gender and placed the correct bouquet of balloons behind us. She counted down and we turned around.

I was so nervous! I would’ve been excited with either gender but really wanted a baby girl.

Here are the pictures from the gender reveal session. It was so much fun!!

Trip to Sioux Falls, SD

by Megan

At the beginning of July, the boys and I took a trip to Sioux Falls. We visited friends of mine from my college days. It was a jam packed few days, but so much fun! We went to a play in the park with the Ashworth’s. We went to Brookings, SD to the Children’s Museum to visit Andrew and Laura Ellsworth and their children (Eli and Lydia). So much fun!!! One day, we even went to my college for a trip down memory lane. It was a fantastic trip! It would’ve been so much if Dave was able to join us.

Eli’s 4K Graduation

by Megan

In the beginning when we first learned about Eli’s CHD (HLHS), I wasn’t sure which milestones we were going to meet and which ones we were going to miss. Thankfully, we’ve been blessed with many milestones!!

A recent milestone is his 4K graduation. Eli spent the 2013-2014 school year attending 4-year old kindergarten (otherwise known as preschool). He loved it! He learned so much and grew into an amazing little man. We were so proud of him. I cried!
