...boy or girl...you're not finding out...

well our ultrasound was friday morning. it was SO much fun. i don't have a scanner, so the next time i am around one i will be sure to put up the pictures of the baby. shaun and i decided to find out what we're having. but we aren't telling. my mom and sister came along to the ultrasound and then they had to do the 'fun' one, so amy and my mom left the room. after we were done with the 'fun' ultrasound they tech asked if we were sure if we didn't want to know. shaun and i looked at each other and shaun didn't care. so i said sure. yes. so the lady put more gel on my belly and i said, oh i thought you already knew and would just tell us. she said that she was pretty sure, but wanted to be able to show boy or girl. she said when people want to know she likes to show them exactally what they're looking at. so the baby was very good at giving us a butt shot so we could see if there were parts between the legs or not. then i made her print us a picture of the baby so i can scrapbook...it's a >>>>>>>>! now i just have to be sure to hide the picture from my scrapbooking friends who might wanna know. :) you know who you are! the ultrasound was so fun though. the baby kept playing 'peek a boo' and amelya really got a kick out of that. the baby was also moving ALL over. i'm feeling the baby move lots more now too. it is my most absolute favorite part about being pregnant. i love all the jabs and kicks to the belly and ribs. the only thing i don't like is when it feels like they are trying to scratch their way outta there!! i will NEVER forget how that feels. ahhhh. i get the shivers just thinking about it. i had it bad with each one of my pregnancies near the 'end'. and i don't regret finding out. i never wanted to know with the others, but this one i did. so it's kind of fun knowing. except i call it what it is around home, she, he, her, his, and have to be very careful not saying her or his or he or she in public either. i've told some random strangers what we're having when they ask though. so it's nice to be able to tell people who don't know my family. i know that my mom really wants to know, and i know shaun's mom doesn't. so i am going to do my best not to spill it before the baby comes. it's fun too because we have dustin/dustynn picked out for boy or girl. so we can call the baby dustynn/dustin and no one will know what we're talking about. he he he. it's funny that way. amelya said she wants to name the baby bob the builder, she has thought from the beginning the baby is a boy. so we'll see if she's right. although i am not naming the baby bob the builder if it is a boy. i really like dustin/dustynn and am excited to be getting dustynn/dustin. because ever since we started having kids i mentioned the name dustin/dustynn. so we finally get our little d baby dustynn/dustin. do you notice how i keep switching if i say girl or boy first or dustynn or dustin first. you won't know. i'm telling you. part of me really wants to tell someone i know though. but i won't. nope i won't. okay i should say, i'll try my hardest not too. people have tried to get me to react to them saying "it's a girl" or "it's a boy" i think i've done a good job and not reacting. actually shaun's aunt said i was just trying to see her face but she didn't even flinch. nope i didn't. surprising though because she was right with what she said. but you weren't there do you won't know what she said. and you have NO idea which aunt said it. he has 10 of them. ;) this is kind of fun actually. the rest of the weekend went well too. caitlyn finally didn't throw up on saturday, so that was a relief. she only threw up once on friday too, so it wasn't that bad. she didn't enjoy the waterpark as much as the other two did. but we all had loads of fun. the girls are all awake, so i don't want to take the time to post pictures now. but i will try to soon. breigh turned two on saturday. CRAAAZY. she kept saying all day birthday, happy birthday. it was so funny. we had the parade on sunday. that went okay. amelya hated the fire trucks and loud sirens and horns. the boys a little ahead of us kept telling the trucks to beep their horns and they did. but she got over relatively quick. especially when we told her she wasn't getting candy if she wasn't on the curb. we went by shaun's aunt and uncle's house after for a little while. that was a nice time. we saw some of the family we haven't seen in awhile. there is a wedding reception this weekend so we'll see them there too. i think we are going. i don't know actually. it's just around the corner from our house sooo it makes sense to at least go for a little while. shaun has a huge family. his mom is one of twelve. and four of the twelve have four kids, four have three, and four have two. so there are loads and loads of grandkids and great-grandkids. not all of the grandchildren are alive but i figure they should still be counted anyways. and let's see there are three of us pregnant right now too. one of them should be having her baby today actually. then one is due in august/september and then i am due in november. i don't think anyone else is having a baby, but i can almost guarentee that by november someone else probably will be. it's never a dull moment in that house on christmas!! christmas is the only holiday for sure that 99% of everyone is in the same house at the same time. his grandparents have a relatively small house and i know 'strangers' to the family have asked how we all fit in there. but we do. and it isn't too crowded either. plus i think shaun's grandparents love it when their house is full. i think it's a lot of crazy fun too. then after that we went by my parent's house for breigh's birthday with them. she had fun opening gifts and eating cake, and again saying my birthday. we still have to get together with shaun's mom and sisters yet. i don't know when. plus the playroom isn't finished so i really don't want to do it at our house. so we'll see. maybe i can ask shaun's mom if we can do it at her house after church or something on sunday. that'd be nice. or we could just go out to eat at penelopy's for her birthday too. hmmm. something to ponder i guess. i really want the playroom finished though. last week NOTHING got done in there, with caitlyn being sick and stuff. then we were gone all weekend. and now we have that reception this weekend. ahhh. never ending. but i want the girls to have it done. and then i get my living room and dining room back. and i can rearrange the furniture so i can use our patio door again. we put the couch in front of it for winter time. and it's been there since two winters ago!! i know i know. i'm taking all three girls, by myself, later for their pictures. it's breigh's two year and caitlyn's nine months and amelya just because. i have all three of them matching outfits that i am excited for them to wear. i bought the sweaters at bellybeans awhile back and they haven't worn them yet because i am saving them for today. they aren't sweaters but like it. they have short sleeves. i bought them all jeans to wear with them. i think jeans look cuter. i dunno. so i'll have to post those too. i just take them to sears. they do a decent job. and the price isn't too bad either. i'm having them done at three. so by the time we're done it could almost be time for supper. am i brave enough to walk the mall with them all by myself?!?!? we'll have to see. i'll push breigh and caitlyn in the double stroller then amelya will have to walk by me. it'll be fine. i'm a little crazed out by it though. i do loads of stuff by myself with them all the time, walmart, library, eating out, but i have never done the mall. by myself. it'll be fine. it'll be fine. that's all i've been telling myself. and i'm sure it will be. i just have to get the girls to be cooperative for their pictures. that just might be the biggest challenge. so i'm going to go now. have a great day. :)

4 loving words from you.:

Uggg...I was so looking forward to find out the sex. My thoughts are it's a boy. I do like the names you have picked out. Any thoughts on middle names to go with Dustin/Dustynn?

for a boy the full name would be dustin russel and for a girl it would be dustynn rorrie
my dad's name is rory russel, so that way the baby would be named after shaun's brother and my dad. nope not a hint. :) love it!! i truly love it!!
