Evening out the Score

Yes... it's a boy! (All because Tatum has mentioned her request for a baby brother in her prayers for the last 5 months). We are very excited to even things out around here. Ryan, actually rejoiced out loud in the ultrasound room. Davis is excited to have a little brother, but is getting over a major disappointment... he was at a birthday party during the ultrasound and when I came to pick him up, I told him the news. He grabbed my hand and we headed out. He smiled up and asked, "so is my baby brother in the car?" He thought we were bringing one home for him today. Sorry little guy 21 more weeks to go.
Here is a picture of the handsome little man... I am sparing you the many, very violating gender shots we got to take home. Yep, we are positively sure about this one.

Tatum chose a Fancy Nancy theme for her party, one of her favorite books. We had an assortment of hor de'voures, etiquette lessons, a fabulous boa fashion show, a fancy dance party, and we made delectable parfaits.

Play Day

It's a hard life...

Huntington Dog Beach

Sobe was in heaven chasing the waves and mingling with fellow canines... I think this may have been the best day of his life. He even got some attention from a Hollywood Doggy talent agency. You can expect to see him in Beverly Hills Goldendoodle sometime next spring.

Lyric, loving the sand, as usual.

Grandma Billie

While in Arizona, we visited my Great-Grandma Billie. She was so happy to see all of her little great-great-grandchildren and was all smiles.
