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!

Congrats!!! So excited for you and your fam! I don't know if this baby will have a playmate so close in age as Jackson and Colt...but maybe soon! We'll be praying for a healthy pregnancy, birth, and baby.

Congrats!!! You are joining the bandwagon of having kids close together. It's funny how many have. My two are 21 months apart, so let me know if you want any insight on the crazy, but FUN change. I hope you are feeling good and that everything stays healthy. Maybe we will see you around since we are in and out of your area (my parents live there). Good luck and many blessings to your growing family!!!

Charis -
I'm so excited for you!!! This is Kelly, not Matt by the way. For some reason, his account came up. I'm glad it didn't take as long as it did to get preggers for Colt. =) Matt and I are going for number two, too, so we'll let you know if there is any news!

Love,
Kelly
