17 weeks and other news

I'm 17 weeks pregnant today. Time is F-L-Y-I-N-G by! I swear, this baby is going to be here before we know it.

Only 11 more days until we find out what this baby is. Anyone have any guesses? Almost everyone has told me this baby is a girl. Either way, I'm thrilled, of course. But I really wonder who is going to complete our family.

In other news, right after we find out the gender of the baby, Todd's leaving again. He'll be overseas in the Middle East for about 6-7 weeks. Lets pray that Will handles this trip better than the last one. I'm really stressed now that I know how poorly he handled it last time.

In the meantime, we're going to enjoy our time together as a family. One more day out on the lake before Todd cleans up and winterizes the boat. We're going to the pumpkin patch next weekend - it's now our tradition. And we might even go hiking at the National Park to enjoy the fall weather and leaves turning. Then right before Todd leaves we're getting our family portraits taken along with Will's 3 year pictures.

I swear the second pregnancy goes by so quickly because the first one keeps you so busy!! I am thinking girl too, but like you said...either will be wonderful. Although I'd like to have experienced a daughter, I am truly loving having two boys and can't wait to see them grow up together. :) I hope will takes the separation better this time. I hope it goes by quickly for everyone!! :)
