Sex Change

Well now that I have your attention I have an announcement to make:

I went to have one more ultrasound today before I head back to the States in order to make sure my little guy was still a little guy. You guessed it. He's not a he. It's a girl! WOW!

My dad always tells my boys that if they kiss their elbow they will turn into girls and he tells the girls that if they kiss their elbow they will become a boy. So, Benjamin said he guesses the baby kissed his elbow. Sounds reasonable to me. I just hope she doesn't do it again.

I've just spent the last two days registering at and because my sweet friend Geni wants to give me a baby shower when I'm back in Virginia next week. Now I'm going through and changing all the blue to pink.

Good thing we double checked!! I would write longer but I need to get my registeries changed before you all start running out and buying her sailor and race car outfits and airplane stuff. :>)

I Got A Monkey On My Back!

The following took place in the rainforest of Bolivia. We spent the night on a trip in a town called Villa Tunari. Near this town is a place where monkeys are abundant. Many of the monkeys have been brought in to be treated medically, or relocated for some other reason. The monkeys are used to humans, and have no fear. Therefore, they will come check you out, and try to steal from you.

One monkey took a sucker out of Joshua's hands and climbed above our heads and ate it. Another jumped down on Jacob's shoulders and tried to steal his glasses. Jacob slapped it, and IT SLAPPED HIM BACK!! Jacob's claim to faim is that he has been slapped by a wild monkey.

The monkeys would come down and walk beside us, hold our hands, wrap their tails around us, etc. It was fun.

Look at these photos....and remember that these are wild monkeys in the jungle. A cool day!
