Pregnant when we moved TO Tampa,

and pregnant when we left! Yes, you heard right... we are having another baby! Some of you are very perceptive and picked up on my "clue" in the house videos, especially Wendi -you are quick!

Anyway, the new baby is due February 28th or March 1st or sometime around there. We went today for a 13 week ultrasound. At this same appointment with Colt, the doctor was able to tell us we were having a boy. However, today the lady who did the ultrasound was not on the same page. She didn't even look at the genital area! She said there is too great a chance of getting it wrong at this stage of the game. So, while we are grateful everything looked healthy with the baby, we were disappointed that we'll have to wait another 6 weeks to find out the gender. And for those of you that are wondering, the baby and Colt will be 20 months apart. Yea!

A Tribute to Tampa

We've been gone from Tampa for about 6 weeks now and are having withdrawals from all our friends there. Since we've been missing yall so much lately, here's one for you!

Let's begin with our wonderful Tampa neighbors. I miss our Girl's Night Outs and our walks. I know you miss me too, having such great new neighbors :) I appreciate all of your support and advice in my first year of motherhood! I thought this was a fun picture of Colt and his next door girlfriend sharing some popcorn at our going away party. I really miss our good friends the Paparestas and the Ernsts! Your friendship has been invaluable to me as a new mom, and more importantly as sisters in Christ. I know our friendship will withstand the distance, even though it would still be nice to dig that tunnel under the Gulf.
Monday nights are a real drag around our house these days because we wish we could be hanging out with you guys! (This is our Young Marrieds small group at Oakwood Community Church.) It's been fun to watch the dynamic changes in all of our marriages. Thanks guys for your friendship and for helping Tampa become home to us so quickly! We'll really miss you all!
Kelly and Brady have been lots of fun to hang out with in our first year as moms. It was nice to have a like-minded mom around, who was going through the same things at the same times! Good luck to you with the book. We'll have to keep in touch through our blogs!

Oh, Collins family. What will we do at basketball games without you? Who will Ty go to lunch with? Who will Gavin climb all over now that we are gone? We've enjoyed hanging out with your entire family and will miss you guys! Glad we got to see you in Vegas though.
