It's a Girl!!

We're having a girl!!  It was hard not having Steven there with me to find out, but we got to talk on the phone today, so that made it better.  We are very excited!  I secretly wanted a girl but had convinced myself that we were having a boy...so needless to say, I'm ecstatic!  After we cheered a bit on the phone, he said, "You know we're done, right?!"  hahaa!  maybe.....  :)
Everything looked good at the ultrasound except that her head seems to be measuring two weeks behind.  They scheduled me for a follow up ultrasound when I'm back from Indiana in January.  Saying prayers that everything is okay and our sweet baby girl will be healthy.

Fun on the Farm

We had a MOPS playdate at a local Savannah farm.  James and I had a great time!

Deployment Day

Steven deployed today.  It was really hard.  I cried all the way home.  We've been telling James that daddy's going away to work in Afghanistan for a really long time, but not sure how much he's understanding that.  So to help, we made a paper chain with a ring for each day Steven will be gone, each month a different color.  Hopefully that will help give a visual tool to help him understand. 
We have a big year coming up and we're just praying these next nine months race by.  We'll be heading to Indiana for Christmas, coming back to GA for a month, then going back to IN to have our baby.  Steven won't be able to come back for the birth, so James and I are going to go be surrounded with the amazing love and support of our family.
