So here was my initial reaction to finding out I was having a girl:
"What, that is amazing!"
"I don't know what to do with a girl."
"I don't need a girl when I love my boys so much."
So, I am a freak. I kind of felt this way when I was about to have Luke, like "I love my Sammy so much, I don't need anything else."
Now I know it doesn't work that way because your love just grows and expands. I think it's just because I have taken pride for so long in being a Mom of rambunctious boys and when I looked into the future I've seen them as teens and pictured raising them and I have never pictured a girl. So yes, I'm a freak. I know I'll love this baby, and I am very excited for a little pink in my life...but a little freaked out.
I have a lot of friends/family that also have 3 boys. Cra-zay!
This is a shout-out to: Camila, Heather, Stephanie, Jenni, Vikki, and Holly...you're next one will be a girl...we have to keep our club alive!
And to Julia...who leads the way:)

This snake made my day, I saw it while I was doing some yardwork, and then it slithered off before I could catch it, so I thought it was gone. Later as I was making some quesadillas I saw it again, and so I ran out to catch and caught it, but then I had a snake in my hand and quesadillas burning on the grill. I then took the snake in one hand and had to flip the quesadillas with the other hand (just kidding). I actually just unplugged the grill I was cooking them on and then put him in a pillowcase until Sammy came home from school and then we snapped these pictures before letting him go. I am pretty confident that it is a grey rat snake (Elaphe obsoleta spiloides). It was very tame, and only coiled up once, when sammy tried to grab him as we let him go. He also shook his tail a little bit like a rattlesnake. I have always wanted to catch a snake in the backyard but this is the first one we have seen since moving here (in our yard that is)
