The Moment You've All Been Waiting For...

May I have a drumroll please?

And now, here by popular demand, in all its glory is....

MY BELLY! (and Griff's head...)

This is me at 18 weeks pregnant. To be honest, this past week was the first that I felt like I had anything to show for this kid inside of me. I've been in that awkward in-between stage for quite some time. Real clothes getting tight, but maternity clothes too big. Then suddenly, in the past week, BAM...there it was.

We finally told Griffin that the baby is in my belly. I wasn't sure how he would take it...I mean, I would be a little freaked out to find out that that's how babies enter the world (come to think of it, it still does freak me out a little bit.) He handled it quite well. He gave my belly a kiss and said, "Hi, Baby!" Oh he in for a world of change. =)

HEY-- mark April 16 on your calendar. It's the day we find out whether we are having a boy or a girl! I can't wait. I've been relying on Griffin to give us accurate forecasting. For the longest time, every time we asked him whether he was going to have a baby brother or sister, he would say sister. But lately, he's been leaning more toward brother.

So, I thought I would give you a chance to use your prediction skills. In the top right corner of the blog is a poll. I wanna know what you think!

I'll give you this piece of trivia to help guide your decision: Ehret men don't produce daughters very often. In fact, there were no girls born in the Ehret family in the past 80 years or so until this past year. So, has the curse been broken and now girls will rule the Ehret name? It's up to you to decide!

Oh...and no fair voting for both to those of you who want us to have multiples. It's not gonna happen.

I LOVE THE EHRETS!!! And this one's gonna be a girl...because the rest of our gang seems to produce more boys. Susana & my girls need another female to even the score. And you know Wes was super-cute hanging out with Libbey last year...awwwwwwww.

But if he's a he, I will rejoice & love him just the same. Because that's what you do.

You are beautiful...praying for y'all. Oh, and that snow seriously brought me need some Spring up there!

I had to vote for a boy merely because of hte Ehret family odds. I'm also in a boy dominating family and must admit I kind of like it! I've marked April 16 down (I think that was the date) and can't wait to hear. Have you checked what the Chinese Lunar calendar predicts? It was wrong with Joshua but has been right with about 70% of my friends! It's just kind of fun. - Natalie
