20 weeks!

I cannot believe that I am already half way done with this pregnancy! It has been totally different than my last, and I have been enjoying every moment of it. I have been feeling GREAT, and if it weren't for the belly poking out and the wonderful little kicks, I wouldn't even know I was pregnant. Hopefully the next 20 weeks will be as easy as the first, I sure am praying they are. Here is a little belly shot I took on my phone this morning. Little Hudson John is making himself known ; )!

We found out baby #2's gender on Liam's birthday. So, we decided to have a little fun with it and make it a surprise for EVERYONE, including Nick and I! So when we got our ultrasound we came prepared with two envelopes with a toy for Liam inside each. One with a pink toy and one with a blue toy. That morning Liam and I decorated one of the envelopes and had it all ready to take with us. After the ultrasound we had the tech. place the correct toy in the decorated envelope along with the ultrasound picture and seal it up for Liam to open up that night with the family. Oh, and yes, the other toy was placed in the other envelope and also sealed so there was no peaking : )! Before the ultrasound, I thought I would be crazy waiting for 6:00 to get there, but actually after the ultrasound was finished and we knew everything looked healthy with the baby, the gender was really secondary. So, finally after the family arrived Liam opened his special present and revealed that indeed baby #2 is going to be a BOY!! There were defiantly a lot of surprised faces, but we are all thrilled to have another sweet little boy to love! And, we are also excited to let everyone know that baby boy #2 will be named...... Hudson John Kirk. I just love his name, and am excited we will be able to honor Nick's dad by using his name as well. Very special.

We had so much fun Trick-or-Treating! Ummm... I mean, Liam had so much fun! I think it is more fun for the parents than the kids, but Liam did have a great time, too! It only took him a couple houses to figure out what this was all about, then he would run to the next house saying "more treat" "more treat" He was very polite and said "thank you" to everyone, and even tried to share his candy with the people, too :-). I was AMAZED that he kept his elephant hood on the whole time and didn't even attempt to take it off! He looked so adorable! I know before too long he will want to dress up like a superhero or something scary, so I will take advantage of these couple years that I can dress him up as cute little animals :-).
