Its a girl!!

Haha!  You thought I already had the baby, huh? I know, that was rotten of me, but I couldn't resist.  Nope, I'm still large and occasionally in charge. ;)  No, I found out a couple of days ago that my sister Mollie had her sonogram and we are finally going to be adding a girl to the Dyess clan of boys!  Its very exciting!  I told her I will be keeping my eyes open for very frilly, very girly things and I will enjoy every moment and purchase!  Its like a new frontier....the stores will wonder about their increased revenue, the world will go topsy turvy and pink and purple and the like will be in abundance!  Okay, maybe it won't be quite that serious, but it'll be close....hehehe.

On a seperate note,  I have been able to wash all the baby clothes in the Country Save detergent and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!!  It does everything it says it does and I am really excited about it.  I haven't washed the diapers I've made or the wipes, yet.  I want to have a good load to put in, but the excitement still lingers, people!  Okay, I'll stop gushing for now.:)

I also took all of the stuffing out of my boppy and Braden and I separated the globs of polyfil and restuffed it.  I love it that he loves to help!  It looks close to new except for the slight lumpiness which will get packed down with use.  

Here's a question for anyone interested in answering:  Does anyone else have older children that find getting in and out of a newborn carseat that is sitting on the floor waiting for use tremendous fun?  My kids can't go past it without trying to make it into some kind of a toy.  They HAVE to sit in it, push it around and lean it up against stuff.  Anyway, just wondering if this is a universal occurrence.

car seats are so much more fun if they aren't yours. aislyn likes to climb into the playpen when we set it up for the twins. go figure.

HEHE! Congrats sister! You didn't trick me, lady! You aren't due until the end of Feb, right? Matthew and I are (not so) patiently waiting!
We put our newborn carseat in storage. I'll let you know what Luke does with it in a couple of months!
