#1. We got new bunkbeds. These are the ones I've been dreaming over for years, and I finally found them on Craigslist for super cheap. PLUS, the kids broke Harry's bed, so we were in need of them, instead of me just 'wanting.'
#2. We got orders to GERMANY!!! WaHOOOOOO!!!! We're still working out our leave dates, but we *think* its going to be around the end of June. Jay has to do a 4-5 week training course in FL before that, so we're also trying to figure out when that's going to be. And of course, we'd like to get back to visit family before we go, so that's all in the works as well. Be patient with us, when we get some concrete dates, we'll set up a good timeline and let everybody know.
#3. We're having a BOY!!!! I had my regular scheduled non-ultrasound OB appointment on the 25th. I mentioned to my fabulous doctor that we'd gotten orders and that we would be likely moving this summer, and thus not having her deliver the baby (I'm very sad about this fact!). She said, "wow, I bet you're really anxious to find out what you're having then! Why don't we walk down to ultrasound and have a quick look?" I was flabbergasted and quickly agreed. After almost 45 minutes of the little stinker sleeping on my spine, we got him to wake up and show us his "goods." After which, he immediately curled back up and went to sleep. FYI, if I'd KNOWN I was having an ultrasound, I'd have had some sugar and and/or a pop before going in there so that he would've been nice and active! So, now the Butterfield house is going to have yet another male, and Emma and I are outnumbered. Which is okay, she's quite enough girl for our family! LOL
