Dia de Amor y Amistad (Valentines Day)

The title of this day, in Spanish, is the day of friendship and love. So, as a staff we enjoyed the classic comida China in Tijuana together. You may be surprised to know that there is a large Chinese population in the city and therefore some pretty good Chinese food available.
And here we are at 24 weeks pregnant and counting. The smile on Ryan's face isn't really that exaggerated...he's pretty excited to meet this little baby.  


So, who's really pregnant?

This was taken a week later at Melissa & Mike's house. Liss is quite content to be the Aunt right now.
In fact, their dog, Dodge, is quite content to be their child.  Also pictured is Steph's grandma who is on a road trip with her grandpa visiting grandkids around the States.

We are thankful for our friends here in Tijuana who give us opportunities to practice what it'll be like to take care of a baby.  This is probably Ryan's first time feeding a little guy.

It's a.....

Well that's what the ultrasound says. However, we realize that right now only the Lord knows what gender is growing inside me. We've heard too many stories of those hearing one thing and being quite surprised on the day of their precious one's birth. We'll pick boy and girl names just to be safe.
To explain the above photo...
We took a poll with our staff the day of our last doctors appointment. You can see who (which gender) guessed right. The frown on Andrew's face may be something his parents saw a lot of each time one of his seven sisters was born.
