Looks like the planning has begun for the baby room! We have been looking at several different themes and I think we finally came to the decision to do frogs, turtles, and alligators :)  It's going to be so much fun! Chance and I went out yesterday to look at baby stuff for the first time at Babys R Us... well unfortunately the power went out in the whole shopping center so our trip was not a success... but today we went and got paint for the room.  It's called lilly pad green! YAY!  Chance got started this afternoon and has gotten the whole back wall done.  He's going to finish it later because the fumes were so bad.  (One good thing about being pregnant is that I get to watch Chance do all the hard work haha). 

Here is a picture of Chance working his tush off...

Here is a link to the bedding that I'm thinking we may get, tell me what you think about it! 

Welp, that's all we have SO far... have a BLESSED evening!!! :)

Ok, if you've never seen this video you HAVE to watch it!!! It's about two guys that buy a lion cub and raise him in their home.  Eventually the lion gets too big to keep so they decide to take him back into the wild and let him go.  After a year of the lion being in the wilderness, they decide to go back and see him, even though researchers told them that the lion (Christian) would not recognize them and would be completely wild.  You have to see what happens!  I was in TEARS!!!!!!  Watching this video made me think about how wonderful God is and how he really intended our lives to be great and full of love.  No matter who you are, you will love this video!  Please leave me a comment telling me what you thought :)  This was just a random part of my day that I wanted to share with the world.

Finding out

OK, so we video recorded on my dvd camcorder, the whole thing the night that we found out we were having a boy and I've been trying to download it onto my computer... unfortunately because of the format of the dvd I can't get it on the computer! ugh!!!! BUT I did video it on my regular camera so I'm going to upload that instead :(  The other video is waaaay better because you actually see the cake and everything... but at least you will get to hear the reactions and all.  So here's the video, I hope you enjoy!

Baby Boy!!!

Welp... We're having a BOY!!!! I was so wrong! Everyone said it was a boy... but me.  Oh well, I guess I'm just in that 30% of women who's instincts are wrong. 

So this is how we found out...  First we went to the doctor for our gender scan, the appointment was at 4:00 in the afternoon, and we told the ultrasound tech. that we didn't want to know what it was because we were doing something special that night.  The tech. turned off the monitor so that we couldn't see at first, because she wanted to go ahead and find out what it was so that she could avoid any private parts when we got to see the baby on the screen.  She had the wand on my stomach for about two seconds before she figured out what it was... that was the first moment that I thought it may be a boy... I mean she found that thing FAST!!!! But she gave us no hints at all, which was so great in the long run.  We got to see him moving around and doing flips on the screen after that, but of course we still didn't know he was a him.  The tech. printed out the pictures and put them in a sealed envelope for us.

Next, we went to Great American Cookie Company to have a cookie cake made.  I handed them the envelope and said "Please look in the envelope and write whatever it is on the cake, but DON'T tell us what it is, we are going to find out later".  There were three girls there and they were so funny... they opened up the envelope and all of them went "awww" at the same time.  It was so sweet. 

We then went and picked up a whole bunch of barbeque for our friends and family that were coming over that night... but this time it was about 5:30, so we still had time to go home and clean a little before everyone came over.

Our friends and family started arriving around 7:00, but we had to wait until everyone was there to find out together.  The last of the group finally arrived around 7:45 and by this time we were SOOO anxious that we decided to do the cake before dinner :)  I got my mom, my dad, and sister on the phone so that they could hear the news with us.  Chance did the honors and opened up the BEAUTIFUL cake that said we would be having a BOY.  I just laughed and said "it's a boy" and thought "wow I was wrong the whole time"... 

But we are soooo excited!!!! This will be the first grand baby boy on the Darley side of the family.  He is going to be one ROTTEN child!!!  I CAN'T WAIT! Now the next thing we have to do is decide on a name... a lot harder than we thought it would be.

Enjoy the picture of his pogey! :)

P.S.  If you have any suggestions for baby boy names we would love to hear them!!!! :)
