So we went to the doctor on friday all jazzed and excited about finding out what we're having. 45 minutes later...we still had no idea what this baby is. He/she is breech with his/her bumb down and legs completley crossed! The lady tried everything to get her/him to move, but to no avail! She also couldn't get the correct leg measurements, so we have another ultrasound scheduled in a month. Hopefully we will get to see then, if not, it will just have to be a suprise!! It was a tad dissapointing. The Man was really bumbed. ( hes hoping for another boy, so he REALLY wanted to know!) But here are some really cute pictures of whatever this baby is to keep us all entertained until the 13th of

This is His/Her spine and head

Here are some arms and hands....( in the one on the right he/she is sheilding his/her face..this baby is really shy!!)

Four chambers of the heart..

So there ya go! I will definitely keep you all up to date.

Oh I had a question for anyone out there reading this. My friend told me that she had some lady tell her that you can always tell what you will be having by taking the age you are, the month you concieved and adding them together. If its an odd number its a boy, an even one its a girl. This formula has proven true for the two I already have. I was 19 when I conceived The Boy and it was in December. So thats 19 plus 12..that makes 31. An odd number. With Little Girl I was 22 and conceived in April, so 22 plus 4..26. An even number. Weird huh? All the people I have asked so far say its the same for them.

So everyone think about your children and let me know! If this is right, I wil be having a girl...but we shall see!

Ok, that was dumb

well, I got a new template. Yeah! Except for the fact that it deleted everything off of my page and I basically had to start over and add everything back on. Its not going so well. If your name isn't on my list of people I love and it used to be let me know...I'll stick it back on. I can't remember everyones addresses!

If anyone knows how to change your template without it messing everything up let me know. This isn't a Blogspot one, its from somewhere else. Katie, you change yours all the time, whats your secret?

Guns don't kill people..people kill people.

For those of you who know my husband, you are familiar with his hobbies. He is an avid hunter/ fisherman and loves anything outdoors. His dad is also the same and taught my husband at a very young age to use a gun.
I come from a city folk family. My dad taught me how to check the oil in my car and that anything needing done beyond that was the duty of a licensed mechanic. We never had guns. I never even saw one for real until I was 18 and went to live with my grandmother in Georgia for a few months. A 22. to be exact, and we shot at the trees, nothing live!
So for me the thought of The man buying The boy a 5 year old birthday present of his very own shotgun somewhat frightens me. ( he origninally wanted to get one when he turned 2..uhhh, what would be the point of that?) I realize its mostly from my lack of gun handling knowledge or experience. I know my husband is a very responsible hunter and would teach The boy everything he ever needed to know to be safe. But still....
I should probably count myself lucky that The boy is currently scared to death of any very loud, sudden noises, like fireworks, or ballons popping..or gun shots. So it really hasn't been much of an issue. He is getting more warmed up to the idea of going hunting with his dad however and I have a feeling that soon, he will be going on his first trip. I want them to have that bonding experience and for he and The man to have a hobbie to do together to keep them close, I just wonder why it couldn't be bowling?

here is a really cute little redneck boy hangin out with his dad dove hunting. I can just see this happening to my little boy, and though I would laugh..it still hurts! ;-) ( though the man assures me there are guns for little kids that don't have a kickback....I think he makes stuff up to keep me apeased.)

“Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn.” Thomas Gray

Every now and then I get a little inspiration for a poem. I used to write poetry all the time in highschool. I even took a bunch of classes. I loved it. I guess life has just gotten in the way recently and I haven't gotten around to writting anything since..well...I got married. I suppose my muse didn't like the idea of matrimony and she hit the road! It could also be that taking care of a husband and two kids doesn't leave much personal alone time. I can't really write when its noisy and there are demands for my attention every two seconds!

But yesterday I found myself with a quiet moment. (this is going to sound really gross) I was in the bathroom, sitting there and the first couple of lines just came to me. =-) The Boy was at preschool and little girl was sleeping. It was nice to just let it all out. Im not sure how The Man will feel about it, if he ever reads it. =-) I hope he would understand that its just a way of release and really its a compliment to him! (I love you!)

So hopefully you will be seeing a little more of what I love to do. When I revamped my blog I wanted to have poetry and quotes be a big part of the things I wrote. Lets hope I can get back to that place I had originally thought of.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotion know what it means to want to escape from these
