Turns out that little 15% of uncertainly on the ultrasound scan was...

not necessary!  We had our 20 week ultrasound last week and although we don't get a follow-up until next week, we didn't sense there were any concerns and the baby measured right on track.  They also confirmed that she is a she with no doubts!  I can't believe we are half way there.

She is perfect and beautiful and we just can't believe this is actually happening.  Life is full of miracles and blessings I suppose!  Now if we could just figure out a name, right now we are debating between Phoebe Kate (yes, I know there's a movie start named Phoebe Cates but to be honest, that doesn't bother us and only we would use her middle name) and Zoey ??.

The kids are doing great, Chase just rocked another report card with all A's and B's.  5th grade is tough so I'm very, very proud of him.  He is almost done with baseball and I think this may be our last season.  We've had some bumps in the road and our little town loses and lot of boys as they reach his age, so there are only three teams and not a lot of options.  He wants to try basketball so it looks like we'll give it a try. 

Emery just turned 6 and amazes me every day.  She is doing so good in school and started to read small words and loves it.  She is like a sponge.  She is beyond excited about being a big sister, especially to a girl.  She wants to find matching outfits, so I guess I should get on that.  She is busy with dance and gymnastics and never slows down.  These kids my life full and my heart happy (well, Jeff does too).

It's wet, wet, wet here in TX this weekend and supposed to be cold, so we are bundled up and relaxing.  Hope everyone is well!
