Drumroll Please!

We're thrilled to announce...

we're having a....


Our ultrasound was on Friday and I was a nervous wreck! I desperately wanted to know the gender of the baby and was fearful that he/she wouldn't cooperate. As I predicted, Babycakes played hard to get. She moved and kicked each time the technician got close to telling us. Just as the technician got to the right position, the baby put her hand between her legs. After some prodding and poking we finally saw the girl parts.

Karl and I are over the moon - it's such a relief to say 'she' and 'her' instead of 'it.' As for her name, we are spilling the beans early.

Haley Lynn Schweigel

Haley is the name Karl has had picked out for years. Lynn is both our mother's middle names - the coincidence was too good to be true. We can't wait to meet her and the color pink has already started to invade our house.
