Happy Day

I have to admit, it has been a BLAH blogger week for me. We have had a yucky week. Shane has been gone since early Monday morning, Owen was sick all week with a bad cough, fever and sore throat, and I have been back to feeling bad. We got very little sleep and we were all pretty much at our wit's end! Last night, I actually started spotting and got nervous for the baby. I prayed that everything was okay last night, and that Owen would sleep for at least 5-6 hours straight!!

Well, He answered our prayers and today was a great day!!! The Dr's office called me back this morning and booked me for an ultrasound this afternoon!! Even though I was nervous for the baby, I was excited to see it for the first time and relieve some tension that everything was going to be okay. Also, Owen did sleep through the night and woke up feeling much better this morning! Mom, Claire and I went and got our hair cut this morning, I found my bangs =)!! They have been in hiding since well before the wedding =)!! Claire got over 3in cut off, she looks so old it made me sad =)!! The best news of the day: The baby is wonderful...and there was only one!! Everyone was giving me a hard time that I was going to have twins!! So without further adieu...here is the blog debut of our next baby due September 12th!

Introducing either: Rhett Wilson or Bree Leighton Brown!!!!!

disclaimer: I am not really sure what I am looking at either, just go with it =)!
Shane is on a plane on his way home now and Tara just brought me and the kids dinner....much much much better day!!!!
Have a good night!!!!

So glad to hear all is well! I had the same problem with Maddox..over and over again. I swear I had 20 ultrasounds by the time he was born. But things were always okay.

Glad your day got better and can't wait to see the ultrasound that shows the sex...either way...he/she will have a great name!
