What's a Mom to do?

Tate is almost 19 months old and couldn't be more independent! I tell Lloyd everyday that it is a good thing that he is so cute and that he has the funniest personality. He is such a jokester already. I didn't think that I could get another stubborn child, but he proved me wrong. But man do I love this kid!

He won't let me feed him at all now and refuses to wear bibs. Needless to say that this kid gets like 3 baths a day :)

Tate could not adore his dad anymore! They are quite the little buddies.

I always know when Tate is doing something naughty because he gets super quiet. The other day I had been in the back of the house folding laundry when I realized I hadn't heard from him for a few minutes. I walked out to find him in his walker and he was unloading the crayons as fast as possible from my cabinet that he had somehow undone the lock on. I can't even catch him now when he runs away from me!

It's a . . .

GIRL!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited I can barely stand it. We went in for my ultra sound today and everything went just as we had hoped. The doctor checked all the vitals and said that everything looked perfect. 10 fingers, 10 toes, and much to my relief, no cleft lip and/or pallet. Then at the very end, he confirmed that, yes, this sweet new little thing was in fact a girl. He checked every nook and cranny that he could see to make sure that nothing was hiding :) I knew there was another girl that needed to come to our wonderful family. Lloyd informed me that this was my last shot at getting her before I had to find myself another donor :)
