Drum Roll Please

It's a GIRL!

I'll spare you the pictures that prove it, but she may as well have been sitting on the machine. We are stoked. We were going in excited for either, especially since we've been blessed with a boy and a girl already. I'm excited to see what the whole sister thing will be like for the girls. I have a sister who is 8 years older than me so I have an idea, but these two will be 2 1/2 years apart. I think it'll be a little different. The kids are really excited. Eden thinks we should name her Princess Ariel (after the little mermaid).

We were debating whether or not to even get the ultrasound. I was anyway. Micah was dying to know the baby's gender, but I was thinking it would be fun to go without an ultrasound. It would add a little spice to our third pregnancy and drive my Mom bananas (ha ha).

There was some unexpected news with the ultrasound and we'll share more details later. After a few checkups since the initial visit here we've been reassured that our little girl is growing healthy and strong. We feel very humbled by our experiences this last week and have been reminded of what miracles these children are. We can't wait to meet our newest miracle. We are already totally in love.

Family History

About 7 years ago when Micah and I were still dating he woke me up really early. It was dark out still I think. He blindfolded me and and took me out to his car and started driving. I was still half asleep but smiling I'm sure. After a little effort of trying to figure out where he was taking me I gave up and just enjoyed the ride.
Once the car stopped the hiking began. Not much hiking for me though. Micah had me jump on his back and piggy backed me to the destination, where ever that would be. Finally we stopped. He put me down and took off the blindfold. It was beautiful. Micah had taken me to the Heiau above Waimea Bay.
After taking in the view for a second and getting my vision back I looked over at Micah. He was on one knee with a little box. He said, "Well, what do you think?" I responded with something like, "About what?" I wasn't trying to be rude, I just missed the HUGE lettering in the sand down at the beach that read, "Will you marry me?". Once it all came together you can imagine the reaction and shock.
Yesterday we took the family there and shared the story. Eden Waimea had us tell her again and again and again. Taj loved the hike and the bunker. It's a special place for sure.

Snail Mail

You can add mail to my list of good things about being in the middle of the ocean. We get NO bills or junk mail, and have received a few really fun packages. The immediacy of the computer is great, but there's nothing like REAL mail!

I've only got 4 1/2 months to learn to work pregnancy like Mrs. Poehler:

You might want to turn off my blog music before you watch the video.

True Love

Micah brought me a sandwich from Bale's and a new longboard! Is it any wonder I'm happily married? *don't take the sandwich at picture value- it's amazing and must be tried.
If anyone has tips on stopping this hurricane-like wind, I'd appreciate it. I want to try the board before I'm too big with child.
