99% Sure It's a...

It's A Girl!Today Jayne and I went to the doctor to have an ultrasound done to check out our baby due on November 3. While we've never had a chance to find out the sex of our baby before it was born in the past, this time around we really wanted to know.

For weeks, months, people have asked both Jayne and I if we were going to find out the sex of the baby. Today, we found out.  The doctor had to tell us twice before it really sunk in. With God blessing us already with two boys we both were hoping for a girl. On November 3 the doctor is 99% sure we'll be having a girl.

Today she weighed 13 oz (don't ask me how they can determine that). In a few months she'll be a lot bigger.

I've already had several people asking me if we'll be naming our next child with a vowel again. I'm pretty sure we won't be telling anyone in advance what we are naming her until she arrives, but I can tell you that it probably will be with a vowel. We already had some girl names picked out in the past so now we can dust those names off and consider a bunch more.

I think Jayne deserves to have a pink party sometime. She is pretty excited and so am I. If you get a chance be sure to drop a line to Jayne to congratulate her. I don't think she'll tire of talking about this particular bit of news.

Motor Fest '07

Ean & Evan having fun at Motor FestThe boys had a good ol time at the Motor Fest rally at First Federated Church on Sunday. The rally involved a lot of cars, motorcycles, a couple tractors, a boat, and a drag car.

Jayne said Evan could wait to get into the bounce house. Both boys really enjoyed jumping around.

Dad was busy taking photos of the rally and making sure things were running smoothly. If you look at all the photos you'll see a few where dad was given a card and a present (the book "The Bourne Ultimatum" by Robert Ludlum).

Being the father of two boys is still pretty new to me. Less than eight years ago I was single! It is a challange living up to the standard my boys deserve in a father. Perhaps on this Father's Day and in Father's Days to come I'll use that day to spur me on to being a better dad.
