As most of you know by now Julie and I found out Monday that we are going to be blessed with a little baby girl. It's real now. I guess it never really sank in that we are really going to have a baby until yesterday when I was talking to a friend, and I said.....I'm going to have a daughter. Man, what an amazing feeling. I, once again, have so many emotions going through my head.
I am unbelievably grateful to God for blessing us with a baby girl. He, no doubt, continues to watch over Julie and I and continues to bless our growing family.
I'm so proud. I'm so excited. I'm so anxious. I'm so humbled. I feel like doing cartwheels, hand standds, and high-fiving everyone I see. Every time I think of that sweet little baby Reagan Elizabeth, my face lights up and I can't help but smile.
Thank you all so much for the thoughts, prayers, and comments. We truly are blessed with amazing family and friends and have no doubt, Reagan will be loved tremendously.
Both, Julie (my baby's mama) and baby are doing great. The doctor said she looked healthy and happy and was right on track for an August 14th delivery. Awesome.
We did have a little scare regarding whether or not it was a he or she......As soon as the doctor started the ultra sound he said.....come on, work with us......I think it's a girl.....
I saw Julie's jaw drop and I was dumbfounded - YOU THINK?!?!?! I don't do I think when it comes to this....we've waited a long time to find this out (sometimes patiently sometimes not so much) You're going to have to do better than I think. Luckily he did confirm, once Reagan was in a better position that it was in fact a she.

Other news.
Saturday we had a garage sale......where the heck did the frappin cold weather come from? It was 84 on Thursday then 46 on Friday....We woke up at 6:00 am Saturday to put out signs and move stuff out of the garage to a whoppin' 31 degree temp with the wind blowing 30 mph......I thought it was spring....come on!!! We picked a great day for a garage sale. Luckily it went really well....really really well. We sold practically everything except 2 tupperware's full of clothing/misc items and the air hockey table (I was surprised this didn't sale). but, overall we were pleased with the outcome....made some money and had a great time....well not a great time but a good time....well, ya know - it's a garage sale - it's not fun.
In fact, every time Julie would walk inside, someone would come by and I'd sell em a big item or lots of small items....then she'd come back outside and it'd be silent.....went away.....people came.....back out.....adios amigos....it was really weird how that worked out!! I guess I'm that amazing of a sales rep:) haha I actually wasn't saturday - someone would say will you take this amount for this piece of crap - i said sure.....whatever just take it away....I guess since I'm so used to negotiating pricing throughout the week, that's the last thing I want to do on the weekend....I was a push over - but oh well - it rocks that it's over

2 Year Anniversary - holy crap has it been that long already? If someone told me 2 years ago that I'd be living in Abilene and Julie would be pregnant - i'd say you're on crack.....but here we are. It's amazing to think of the road traveled since Julie and I first started dating.
-8 job changes (college jobs included)
-2 graduations (of course)
-10 different apartments/houses
-4 different cars
-2 dogs
-2 cities (abilene, san antonio, and back to abilene)
-baby on the way

Wow, have things changed in the last almost 7 years. But, it has been a blast (for the most part) and I truly love being married to my best friend. 2 years down and many....many more to come.
To celebrate our anniversary we are heading to Fort Worth Saturday and staying at the Omni Hotel downtown. We both are looking forward to getting away for the weekend and just spending time with one another - who knows, it might be the last chance we have to get away by ourselves for a long...long time. We don't have a lot planned so I know there will be some baby shopping....more shopping....room service......and probably a movie or 2.....just the way Julie likes it - shopping and room service are 2 of her favorite things!!

That's all I have for now - Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers during this exciting time.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! A baby girl is going to be so much fun...and I know that sweet little thing is going to be big-time spoiled by your parents! It was funny reading this post because yalls story/history/timing is so much like ours. We dated about the same amount of time, got pregnant about the same amount of time into marriage, etc. I am so excited for you guys and can't wait to keep seeing the progress and then to see that sweet little Reagan!
