One of the coolest parts of pregnancy is the ultrasound. It's real proof that there's an actual human being with arms and legs and a heart and a head growing inside of me. I will never cease to be amazed at the miracle that is human creation.

So, we had our ultrasound. Healthy baby so far...that's the best news. And we of course found out what we are having. We don't have a scanner, but here is a picture of our picture of the ultrasound :)
About one second after the technician put the wand to my belly I saw a little something I had never seen before on an ultrasound, and I said to myself, This is a boy.

Basically, after 5 daughters and 3 granddaughters, I think the Roy family is in a state of shock (and extreme excitement) to be getting a boy. The Carter's had 4 sons...but since they've had 5 grandaughters and 5 grandsons, they are all just happy for healthy baby.

We are overjoyed and sooooooo excited (though I am also scared to death...I don't know what to do with a boy, like I said, I had 4 sisters and 2 daughters!)

And you would like to know the name?? Well you can wait 20 more weeks :)

Did we metion we had SPRING BREAK?

Almost two weeks ago (yes, safe to say my one time computer addiction is a thing of the past...) Eric had Thursday and Friday off for Spring break, so we headed south! California beckoned to us, along with our Grandma, Grandad, Uncle Ron, and cousins Emily, McKayla and Brayden (the last two Brooke has never met, and Viana last saw when she was 1 month old!) We went to the La Brea tar pits, drove all over LA, went to Hollywood, had a day at Disneyland, and went to the beach. It was WONDERFUL.

For your veiwing pleasure, a visal tour in reverse order of our vacay, free of commentary...

Hooray for wonderful vacations!

Hair today, gone tomorrow

So, Viana has been known for her long long hair since she was a wee tot. Viana and massive amounts of hair just went together. Well, lately Viana and tangled up ratty hair have been more the partnership. It was time for The Cut. And, why get a hair cut unless you take off ten inches, right? (It didn't start out 10 inches, but cutting the hair on a moving target was no easy feat!) And contrary to the expression in this picture, she really likes her haircut!
