Its a girl!

Hello! Its been a while since I have written so I thought I would let everyone know the good news that I am having a little girl. We are so excited! I cant wait to dress her in cute little outfits. I am planning her nursery now and buying the things I need to furnish and decorate it. Its hard because I am buying a lot of things from the states online and it will take some time for it to get here.

I already feel in a panic to get everything done but I know I have a while to go. I am six months Wednesday so I am getting there but I am not quite there yet. Its funny because I went to work after I found out it was a girl ( I work at a day care) and all of the kids had been voting on whether it would be a boy or a girl. I found out some of the kids actually just said either boy or girl but some elaborated further and said it was going to be a boy alien or a girl butterfly. I don't think they have the concept completely down yet so it was hilarious to hear their reactions.

I showed one ultrasound picture where you can see the baby looking right at the camera to a little girl. Obviously the picture looked a little scary because it was a skeleton so I thought I would get her reaction by showing it to her. I let her see it and then asked her what she thought about it and she said, "I don't know...maybe its a monster". I laughed so hard because she said it with the most confused/scared look I have ever seen. Kids say the funniest things so I am excited to see what our little one will come up with. Anyways, I also posted some pictures we took today. I sent them to my mom trying to show her my stomach and she still isn't impressed. They just laugh every time I try to show them how big I am getting. Well I will write soon when I have something to write about. I will have to post pictures of the baby's room also as I am making progress. You will be hearing from me soon. Bye!

Hello! We went to London for the first time yesterday with friends from church. It was really fun and crazy and stressful...all at the same time. If you choose to go to London at any point, I would not recommend going on a Saturday.
It was really really busy. Needless to say, we had lots of fun and took lots of pictures. I would have to say that the highlight of my day was definitely going to the Cath Kidston store that took us 8 years to find. I felt like a kid in a candy store walking into Cath Kidston.

It was so bright and wonderful. I felt overwhelmed. I loved it so much I thought I would take a few pictures to share with all of you, but then the mean lady who worked there told me that I could not take pictures inside the store because she was worried I was a secret spy sent to take all their good ideas.

Well, she didn't say those exact words but she said something about copyright infringement. I could only stand with my mouth open in shock as I thought that she just infringed my joy!

Anyways, I had lots of fun in the store and bought some gifts for certain family members. I also bought an umbrella and some dish washing gloves. So other than my trip to Cath Kidston, we did see some cool historical places as well.

I am glad we went to them first because at the end of the day I only had energy for shopping.

We saw Westminster Abbey, the London Eye which is the ferris wheel thing, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament which Gregg and I are standing in front of on the bridge.

It was really fun seeing all of these historical places, even though I am not a historical buff and have no idea what they are or what they do but at least I saw them.

I do know that they told me about each of these places but I was too busy wondering when we were going to go to Cath Kidston and wondering where all the shopping was.

I personally think they should not have all the historical things in one area because that can be overwhelming but rather they should mix it up with some cool shops in between. I just came up with that. I think its a great idea.

Anyways, these are pics of my trip to London. It was a lot of fun and we are glad we got to go. I will write the next time I go on an adventure. Bye!
