Friday morning my parents, Kim, Amanda, Ryan and I headed over to the hospital to find out the sex of Baby E. We had a sonogram at 13 weeks and the sono tech was pretty sure it was a boy, but not 100 percent. So, we get to the Dr's office and they moved our whole group into a room to wait for the doctor. Everyone got to meet Dr. Westerholm and we had a great conversation...I just love her! We went to the sonogram room and the tech got to work. We got to see all the little parts of the baby, hear the heartbeat, see his brain, and finally discover that he is in fact a boy!! We were all so excited!!!
My mom and sister made pink and blue cupcakes that were at HIT at the doctor's office. I am so happy they were all able to do this with Ryan and I....its truly amazing!! I will post pictures once Kim and Amanda send them to me...they are on their cameras.
We have decided on a name. We will be welcoming Gage Ryan Erwin this June!!!!!
Let the fun begin!!!!!

On Tuesday, January 26th I felt baby E move for the FIRST time!!! I had just gotten home from a long day at work, a good 2 mile walk at DBU and running through the drive through at Taco Bell. I make my way over to the couch and turn on the TV for American Idol. Then I begin to devour my Nachos Bell Grande and 2 crunchy tacos from the bell. Yes, I actually ordered the meal which comes with ONE taco, but decided that I needed another..so ordered a second one!! After eating that in record time, I lay back on the couch to take in my much anticipated reality tv. While watching, I felt the smallest of nudging in my lower belly 4 times. I was sitting there saying to myself, 'I know this is not gas...its baby E!!!!' I immediately text Ryan since he was in Grapevine at a flag football game and we were both so excited!!! What an amazing feeling..to really be able to tell your baby is growing! I know that I am definitely growing, but reality definitely set in, and I have been feeling Baby E move everyday and I just LOVE it!
I will be 20 weeks on Thursday...halfway through my pregnancy and I can't believe how fast its going!! My parents are coming up Thursday night to go with us to the gender sonogram on Friday and I can't wait. I took Friday off to do some much needed shopping for the baby!!!
Can't wait to share with you the sex of Baby E!!!!
