Playing Ketchup and It’s a…

July 6, 2015


Apologies in advance to my child for parading a photo of his manhood on the interwebs for all to see. 

My doctor offers a scan at sixteen weeks just for checking the sex. You have to pay for it, and we were warned in advance that sixteen weeks is a bit early and sometimes it can be hard to get a definitive answer…but you can see that we didn’t have that problem.

We’re both excited, if a little more nervous than I think we would have been if it were another girl– we’re both so familiar with that! But, a part of me is really excited to have a boy this time– to experience firsthand how sweet they can be. I feel lucky that with one of each, we’ll get to experience the best (and worst, haha) of both worlds. 

We went to Louisiana for a long holiday weekend. It’s always nice to spend the fourth with family! 

I ran Shreveport’s Fourth of July Firecracker 5k, which, I was thinking about, I don’t think I’d run since college! It’s always a fun, big race– plus, it goes right by my sister’s house, so the kids were out cheering us on as we ran by. 

I was a little nervous about the race– I’ve been running, but just off and on, and almost ALL inside. The humidity and heat were NOT fun…but I ran the whole thing and finished in 31 minutes (29 according to my Garmin). Not too bad for a pregnant lady! 



 And I beat Ryan, which, as I said on Facebook, was the important thing. 

Back home now…Lila starts swim lessons tomorrow!
