August / Sept. Happenings

Well there is certainly much to report since last we spoke. As of this writing we are officially over the half way point in the pregnancy. After some tense moments over the last couple weeks we got some pretty incredible news today. Everything appears to be right on track. The baby is developing on schedule and looks great on the ultrasound. We decided to find out what we're having and are pleased to report that we will be having a baby boy.

It's hard to describe how happy we are that we have made it to this point. After so much uncertainty we can now hopefully relax a bit and enjoy the rest of the wait. January isn't that far off after all. As warm as the weather has been the last couple of days, thinking about a brisk January day is quite nice. The name we have picked out for him is Zander Joseph. It makes me happy every time I say it. We've only known for a little over 12 hours and the child's wardrobe is filling out quickly thanks to the Little Treasures sale we went to today. This kids in trouble already.

In the excitement of all the baby news I almost forgot to report that my paramedic school is finally drawing to a close. I finished up my hospital and field ride time last week so now I just have to go take my national tests at the end of the month.
The timing on it couldn't be more perfect. Needless to say, it's been an exciting time around our household and we're looking forward to the next few months. Thank you for waiting so patiently for updates. Now that school is finished I might actually have a bit more free time to take up the sport of blogging again.

Because I know you want to see them here are a couple pictures of the ultrasound today.
