Tres Barnetts?

So maybe we should have thought out our blog address a little better, because now there is a little one on the way!! Frank and I found out October 1st that we are expecting our first child. S/he is due on June 11, 2008 and we cant wait to finally meet him/her. We had our second sonogram today - but the first one where Baby Barnett (BB) actually resembled a human. We learned that BB likes to sit on it's head for the most part and has a TON of energy. S/he would hardly sit still long enough to be measured! :) The doctor tried to find out if it was a boy or girl, but again, BB wasn't cooperating, so we will have to wait until next month to find out.

For those of you new at reading sonograms, BB's head is in the lower right part of the black oval. S/he's laying on it's back and has it's right hand up to it's face (possibly sucking it's thumb already!). You can see one foot in the air on the left side.

The pregnancy has been pretty good so far. I've been sick on and off for the past 7 weeks, but I think I'm finally on the tail-end of that phase. We have not yet chosen names, but we have a few in mind that we like. However, Frank and I have decided not to reveal the name until the baby is born.

We are very excited to finally be sharing this big news with everyone! We would appreciate your prayers as you think of us. I'm pretty sure we have no idea exactly how much our lives will be changing. Thanks to everyone for your support, and for those of you who have helped us keep a secret up to this point! I'll update you on any new news as it comes!

I am SO EXCITED for you guys--and preparations for a trip to visit Auntie Jen and Uncle John should already be underway.

Seriously, you are all three in our prayers and we can't wait to meet the newest Baby Barnettica.

I'm not sure that I'm old enough to be a great aunt, Kristin. Nevertheless, I'm sooooo excited about this new addition to your family!

Love ya!

YES! So fun. I love sonogram pictures. Keep us updated and let's hang out soon - maybe after the holidays and Danny has come down from the DTS mountain of books/homework/stress.
