She is becoming more sensitive to the outside world and will get used to familiar sounds, such as my heart beating, familiar voices and other routine sounds. She will even become startled if she hears a loud sound...I can only imagine what she was thinking as I walked down Bourbon Street last weekend!
I can't believe I'm almost halfway done with my pregnancy! It really is flying by...although I am afraid in August I may not be saying that so I'm enjoying the pregnancy "honeymoon" period while it lasts!
I ate at Cafe Du Monde twice (their beignets are like crack for a pregnant woman!), played a little Craps and Black Jack, listened to some great speakers and enjoyed BEAUTIFUL weather. My mom and dad, 2 sisters, 2 brother-in-laws and even my oldest niece and nephew all came so it was indeed a family affair!
My sister Nancy and her husband David are founders of a group called Evangelicals for Mitt and were there to show their support for Governor Mitt Romney. Even though Romney didn't even attend the conference this year, he ended up winning the straw poll which was pretty impressive and was a great way to end the weekend! EFM got plenty of national press and so did Romney as a result of his strong showing. Geaux Mitt!Other than losing my license, credit card and some cash that must have fallen out of my purse (ugh) the weekend was perfect! Here are some more pictures of our fun weekend!

RIGHT!!!!!!!! It's a Girl! :)
I have yet to even open the boxes the cupcakes are in since I left her house. I can not say I would not have tried to peek had the party still not been until Sunday - although I don't think I could have peeked without messing up a cupcake anyway and then Josh would have killed me. So I have basically been helpless on cracking this code (whose stupid idea was this anyway?)! But I have gone this long without knowing and really don't want to ruin the surprise for myself at this point! I know the wait will be worth it in the end and really do want to be surprised along with everyone else.
So Josh and I both had to go get either our blue or pink shirts tonight. I have thought it was a boy for a while and so has Josh. But then Josh switched to thinking it was a girl. But he still bought a blue shirt to wear - my guess is he didn't want to wear pink so he went back to thinking it was a boy out of convenience! :)
So in just a few more hours, I'll finally know what I have been obsessing about since Tuesday of this week AND can finally know what to start shopping for, what color to paint the nursery and other fun stuff! Josh and I truly will be happy with either a boy or a girl. We just feel so blessed to be becoming parents and a healthy baby is all we are praying for each night.
So stay tuned! :)
