Lots of things have been going on since I last posted. First and foremost, Adam graduates from law school on Friday!! It has been a long time coming, and we are so proud of him! Now he just has to pass the bar.... Daniel is growing like a weed. He is definitely not my little baby anymore. Unfortunately, he has developed his father's fashion sense.

As for baby #2, we will find out the sex on June 4th, as long as the little nugget cooperates. A few weeks ago, I had a dream that we had a short 8lb 14oz baby girl...and she looked like the Michelin Man. A couple of nights ago, I had a dream that we were at the ultrasound, and the baby was kicking like crazy. They said, "Oh, it must be a boy." And sure enough, it was. I really don't have a feeling for this one like I did with Daniel...I just knew he was a boy. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Two weeks ago, Adam and I had the opportunity to go on vacation alone (courtesy of his boss). This was the first time we would leave Daniel for an extended period of time. He stayed and Grandma and Grandpa's house. After a long day of flying and driving, we arrived in Hutchinson Island, FL. We walked around the resort and checked out the pool and beach. Our room was beautiful.

There was even a cake waiting for us! Along with two glasses of milk (his boss knows we don't drink)!

We had a great view of the beach from our room. It was very windy while we were there, and the water got more and more rough as the days went on. We didn't spend much time at the beach because, even though it was hot, the water was very chilly.

We arrived on Sunday afternoon, and Sunday night I was in bed crying because I wanted to go home and see my baby!! We were seriously looking for ways to go home early! But, after the hormones died down and I got a good night's sleep, I felt much better and was able to enjoy myself.
We ate at this amazing Italian restaurant every single day! I can't believe I am admitting this, but we ate around 4:30pm every day so we could get the early bird special!! Hey, it was buy one entree, get one for $.99! Can't beat that! We did a little bit of sightseeing, but we mostly just relaxed and enjoyed some down time. One of the things we went to see was a lighthouse in Jupiter. I thought it was pretty cool, but I was singing a different tune after climbing 104 narrow, winding stairs while being 4 1/2 months pregnant! But, let me tell you, the view was amazing!!

Notice the difference in picture-taking abilities in the next 2 pictures....just sayin'. :-P

It was nice to get away for a while, but it was definitely nice to come back home. We met Adam's parents in Opelousas to pick up Daniel. When he first saw me, he got a huge smile on his face and said, "That's my mommy!!" It warmed my heart...I must have hugged and kissed on him for a good 10 minutes before we got in the car to go home!

I think that is about it for updates...thanks to constant nagging from my mom, I am going to try and make it a priority to keep up with this blog! Love ya mom!!
