It's a GIRL!

Yesterday's ultrasound revealed a healthy baby girl. Chloe is thrilled to be getting the little sister she's been requesting from day one.  It was so fun to share the reveal moment as a little family at the doctors office yesterday. Watching little limbs move back and forth on the monitor and listen to that beautiful strong heartbeat. That is the part that gets me a bit misty every time. Mr. Locklin might have been a bit misty, too. What can we say, we love these girls.  It's exciting to think that come August we will have a pair of sisters.  Yay!

Votes are in.

Between our blog and facebook polls we have a tally of Boy: 18. Girl: 7
(there is still time to get your vote in-poll in the right margin)

Chloe is certain she wants a baby sister.
Great Grandma Mana insists it's a boy.
I'm so excited and curious to know more about this little growing soul.
Can I just say maternity jeans are the best ever invention?

H is for Health. And Hooray!

Hello faithful 9 followers!

I haven't forgotten about you.  Thank you for standing by while I iron out this new season.  After 10 weeks of (all day) morning sickness followed up by a cold and allergy attack for another 12 days, I've been just barely getting by.  Now that the yucks have mostly retreated, I'm vowing to not take for grated my health.  Something I am so, beyond words, thankful to have restored.

My little family is probably even more happy to have me back.  Let's just say, I was a grump.  And then got cranky about not feeling well and then was so disappointed that I wasn't able to be the same cheerful mama and wife I'd like to be.  It was a vicious cycle that I'm happy to leave behind.  I am so thankful to my husband for the constant support, extra rest time and reminders that I will feel better.  I was starting to think I would be in a constant state of yuck.

I was so caught off guard with the morning sickness.  With Chloe I felt fantastic from day one, tired in the beginning but fantastic.  The start to this pregnancy was a humbling experience.  Which makes me wonder, could baby #2 be a boy?  We will see.

Let's say I'm finding silver linings everywhere, now that I've mended.  I forgot I was a optimistic person even.  Hooray for health!

And today I celebrated with an extra pick me up, a hair cut.  Nothing makes me feel more like a new woman than a fresh cut & color.  Not to mention, the time to just sit and have someone take care of you.  It feels like a mini vacation, really.

Also, exciting news...we find out this sweet baby's gender very soon.  I can't wait to know more about who this little, growing babe is.  I'm feeling more movement all the time.  Which is so exciting.  Any gender guesses?
