IT'S A GIRL??!?!!!!!!!!!!!!

We're having a girl!!! I was so good at blogging when I was pregnant with Cruz... I was okay with Parks.. I'm sucking it up with baby girl ;) But, the good news is that this pregnancy is flying by - faster than I thought possible. I'm 18 weeks and feeling goodish.  I'm still quite nauseous until about noon everyday - and I'm had the lovely morning sickness about four times.  I will NEVER figure pregnancy out.  I threw up literally every day (including three times in labor) with Cruz, and NEVER threw up once with Parks.  It's just the weirdest thing, pregnancy. Other than being really tired from the insomnia, I'm doing great! I have a little bit more energy than I did a few weeks ago, which is great :) The best part, is November is 1/3 over and that means my busy season is quickly coming to a close - which I am always very happy about this time of year! I like slowing down at the beginning of the year and taking a little break.

ANYWAYS!! At my ultrasound, I CRIED!  I asked our sonographer if she was serious multiple times. It took about two weeks to really sink in, but now I am over the moon excited!! I can't believe it's real sometimes! I can't wait to see what she will look like - and Cruz is excited, too! Parks doesn't know what's going on, but he will when she comes.  I think having our kids close together was the best decision of our lives! I absolutely love it.  Cruz and Parks are becoming best friends, more and more each day, and I love watching them interact with each other and how they treat each other.

CRUZ - oh my goodness.  Ammon and I talk about how amazing he is EVERY SINGLE DAY.  I don't know what we did to deserve such an amazing human, but I thank the Lord for him at every prayer.  He is the sweetest child.  He says thank you and I love you at least fifty times a day.  He is always trying to include Parks (even though Parkie wants to be left alone), and take care of him.  I love that boy so much.  He is so special - I will never get over how perfect he is.  He will put himself in time out if he knows he's done something wrong, and he always says he's sorry.  WE love him so much it's unreal.

PARKS - his littler personality is really shining through now.  He's been quite stoic his whole short life, but he's coming out of his shell a lot lately! He is a TEASE!! He loves to tease everyone and flirt with cute girls ;) Like his brother, he has a thing for blondes, and SNORTS when he laughs.  He loves to snuggle.  He likes to sleep in his crib, even though I've tried to get him to sleep in my bed with Cruz and me - he likes his space!  He, usually, wants to be left to his own devices.  He doesn't like it when Cruz tries to help him ;) HE LIKES FOOD!!! And I mean, like, A LOT.  He would eat all day if the food were in his reach.  He's a short, stocky little thing and we adore him!!  His little bum wiggles when he walks and I'm surprised I haven't eaten him up yet.

We are so excited to add to our family!! We love being parents more than anything in the world.  It's the best thing I've ever done.  I can't wait for baby girl to get here :) We already love her too much!
