Girl baby!

We had our 20-week ultrasound last week (at 22-weeks) and the running hypothesis is that we have ourselves a little girl baby.  It was fun to see her wiggling around in there, and good to know that all her parts are appropriately sized at the moment.  The best still showed baby's legs in a lunging stance.  I hope she has strong legs like mama!

I've recently graduated from the beer belly phase to the point of being pretty obviously pregnant, which has been odd.  Luckily, I have some awesome pregnancy pants that I got on the cheap on craigslist.

We've started looking at things to buy for baby, and it alternates between exhilarating and overwhelming.  Who knew they made such fancy strollers and baby carriers.  Another shock was perusing baby clothes at the store, where there was a distinct girls' section (85% pink, 10% purple, 4% yellow, and 1% green) and boys' section (75% blue, 20% green, and who cares whatever else).  What if baby's favorite color is not pink?  I know, blasphemy.  It was fun to see all the tiny little things and intimidating to think we'll have a tiny person to wiggle into them.

Adding another to our awesome team

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes. .  you know.  Babies.  We are happy to announce that we are expecting another addition to Team Haggling in July!  The big ultrasound is next week, so we should have some more news soon.

We have been trying to knock our some minor house things and get our head around just what it is we are getting into.  It's been a fun winter with several trips, including a week skiing in December, a beach tournament in January, a trip to the cabin up north, and a fun weekend with friends in February.  We are planning weekend trips to New York later this month and Arizona in April.

It's great to be all settled into our house.  We still love it and feel lucky everyday to have such a cozy place to call home.  It should be interesting to have another person-though quite small-around.
