Sweet Little Butterfly

Well, its in there all right!
Today I had an ultrasound on my abdomen and they found something there - a little person just waiting to join our family. I was wondering why I was busting out of my bras, pants, and everything else like The Incredible Hulk. No just kidding, we have planned this little one for awhile now and it is coming at the end of March, just like we planned. What a sweet addition this will be for the Cranes. And no, we didn't find out if this little butterfly is a boy or a girl - it will be a SURPRISE!


These are pictures I just took of a few of the pictures they printed out for me, so if ultrasound pictures were not clear enough for you in the first place, now try to figure it out! The top one is an arm and head, and the bottom one is it's foot. Look, it's second toe is longer than it's first!


This is exciting news for us and hopefully I will continue to get fat and things will go smoothly for this little one. I wonder if it has any idea that two big sisters are waiting to love it clear to pieces.

By the way, our Biggest Loser Contest is going well and I think we are on week 7 out of 10. I apparently have lost the contest, but I told Jen that IF I gain the appropriate amount of weight I should get a prize. I am trying not to reach the 42 pound gain like I did with the other two. Doesn't 39 just sound so much better?!?!?

Ok, so I am a horrible sister! I thought about calling you tons of times yesterday, but it was at inconvenient times. I even told Jared yesterday morning at 7 that you were going in for your ultrasound. Then we went out for our anniversary.
I love little pictures from inside. It makes me miss seeing Brogan when he was in my tummy.

I am rooting for a boy.
