It's a boy!

We couldn't be more excited! Now we can say "he" instead of "the baby".

It was so amazing to see the little guy moving around...he was so cute. We got to see him opening and closing his mouth as well as the arms and legs moving about. If he moves as much when he's out as he does while he's in I'm going to be one busy mom. He's starting to kick me in the bladder which makes me moving a lot more with my frequent trips to the bathroom.

My doctor changed my due date to March 29th which works for me. I'm sure by then I'll be ready with whenever.

Chris and I haven't gotten a thing until we knew what we were having. On with the baby shopping! If you need Christmas things are needed. You might want to get Chris a little something extra since he'll feel jipped (treats usually do the trick).

Well, I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving. We forgot the camera so I didn't get to take any pictures. I will tell you Chris and I woke up and were out the door at 4am, Thursday, for the drive to Umatilla, OR, for the weekend. Then, we were up and out the door at 4am for "Black Friday" so we could head up to tri-cities for shopping. There were some amazing deals, but I didn't take too much advantage. It's sad to say I'm never ready with my Christmas lists that early. I've got to get started on my Christmas cards still. I can't believe the holiday is already upon us. Maybe next year I'll be done with my shopping by Thanksgiving and all I'll do during the month of December is bake goodies.

Hello world! ...

We have decided to start a blog to keep our family and friends up-to-date. Since we aren't super great on e-mails and live far away from some of you, this is the best thing to find out what we are up to. Plus, you get the advantage of photos! It might not always be exciting, but we do hope you are entertained most of the time.

That said, the most interesting thing going on in the Walchli life is my pregnancy. I'm half a week away from hitting my five month mark. Hooray! Sorry, I don't know what I'm having yet. My next doctor visit is the day before Thanksgiving, however, his office doesn't do the ultra-sound so I have to make a separate appointment somewhere else. I've waited this long for a baby...what's another week or two, really?
