Boy or Girl? We Will Know Soon...

It's the strangest and most wonderful feeling knowing you have a little life growing inside you... What's even more strange is knowing that even though you are holding them so close to you-- as close as anything can possibly get-- you know very little about them!!
I'm just itching to find out if they are going to have Allen's eyes and complexion... and my temperament, of course (haha). But most of all, I'm just dying to see their little personality come to life! I suppose this 9-month wait is just another one of God's ways of teaching us to be patient and trust in his plan for us. Whatever that may be, for better or worse, I hope I am ready!! I guess patience has never been one of my stronger virtues...

We have had names picked out for some time. We had given it a lot of thought even before we found out we were expecting... So here they are!!

If it's a little girl, her name will be Brynn Roslyn Weinzapfel.
Our little boy will be named Lucas Wilson Weinzapfel.

We are so excited to share this with you all, and thank you for all your love and support! I would also like to thank Allen's parents and little brother, Marc for helping us make some upgrades to our home this weekend. Dave and Jan helped Allen install lighting in three different rooms in our house... The den, the guest bedroom, and the nursery. We only had floor lamps before and it is so nice to have all that light with the flip of a switch! Here are a few pictures:

They had to start from scratch-- drilling the holes themselves!
But they made it look so easy!

New ceiling fan in the nursery... They even installed a dimmer for the lights! :)

Guest Bedroom and Den lighting (den not pictured).

So, we can officially say that we've started on the nursery!! As soon as we find out whether it's a Brynn or a Lucas, we will buy some furniture and start decorating!! I'm so excited!

Also, I made a few changes to the blog... Just trying out some new things! I hope you like them! Our next appointment is this Thursday. I hope I won't be as nervous for this one as I was for the last two!!

I couldn't resist posting this picture of Miles' "yucky" face!! :)

God Bless,
The Weinzapfels
