Well we had a sonogram done today and we found out we are having another little boy. The lady is not 100% sure, she didn't even sound 70% sure. She was not nice and didn't show me anything. Now if this had been my first sonogram ever I would think no differently, but being that I had a ton with Manny, I know they go through each and every body part, listen to the heartbeat, etc. I am very disappointed by my results, not the boy, but the grouchy, nastiness of the woman. I am asking for another sonogram at my next appointment. I have a really good doctor, so I hope she'll send me. I was secretly hoping for a girl though, but a boy is very practical. I have everything I need and the two boys can share a room, everything just makes sense. I know there is a reason for everything, maybe God feels Taina will be enough for me to handle, and I shouldn't have to have the attitude and everything with another girl. Whatever the reason, I just want a healthy baby. Oh yeah....and a calmer one than Manny. He is so energetic and loud, I need a quiet, laid back, sleeper.....please!!!!!

Grandma's big helper

Manny was enjoying his ride from Grandma...until the weeds started itching his back. He is asking her for help in this picture, to get out.

Well school has begun and I am exhausted already. The first week back is always the hardest. Trying to get back into the routine and having to have everybody out of the house so early is like working a job in itself. Then I go to work and relax (ha). My class this year seems to be great so far. The boys are so chatty, more so than the girls. I am sort of excited to only have to work until February, the stinky part is having to come back at some point before the school year is over. I would love to stay home the remainder of the year like I did with Manny, but with the new house being built we won't be able to afford it. I am hoping to stay out at least 12 weeks. I couldn't imagine bringing a 6 week old to daycare. I love Michelle, but a newborn belong at home with mommy. I've already let everyone in the family know that if Manny needs to stay home a day because of illness, they will all have to chip in. I need to save every last day I have (34 to be exact) for the little one. I can only use 30 of those days on a "maternity" leave and maybe the 4 before I give birth. My due date is February 15, I would love to be able to work up to the 14th (then it's a 4 day weekend at school). We will see what the future holds. For now I am taking it one day at a time and waiting anxiously for my ultrasound at the end of the month. I can't wait to see what I am having (they better be able to you'd better behave).
