Secrets, Secrets Are No Fun!

Just so my head doesn't explode, I'm just gonna say it...

WE'RE PREGNANT!

Phew! So much better. We've known since July 5th, but have been keeping it a secret until we could tell Cole's family in person this past week. I'm almost 18 weeks, and I think that's a looong time to keep something like that bottled up inside! And now on to the second part...

IT'S A GIRL!

And we are SO excited!!! She's due March 10th, and we found out the sex right before we flew home so we could double-whammy the Ballards with surprises. It was a lot of fun. Here are some pics:

Our little Pillsbury Doughgirl

These are our two favorite pics so far

I just imagine her yelling, "Cannonball!"

17 weeks. This is possibly part Food Baby too.

Cole and I cried when we saw her for the first time. We can't wait for her to get here already!

Wow, you've got a poker face girl!! All I could think of when I read that you were pregnant is that you told me at Marissa's shower that you and Cole were trying. Guess you succeeded huh? Congratulations!! Motherhood is the most amazing thing ever!

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Awesome. I love your little belly. You look perfect! feeling good? I have a confession to make- I just barely figured out that you changed your blog address to non-private. I'm sure you told me and I just spaced it. ANyways I have been missing out on lots of good ballard funness- and i have a lot of catching up to do. :) YAYA!
