• no matter how many times i try to explain to madison that a couple is two and a few is three, she still insists on arguing with me that it's the other way around. "a couple is three and a few is two." until the other night when her dad said she had to eat a couple more bites of her dinner and she said "oh, a couple is two." then a couple days later she was back to arguing with me.
• a conversation between mom and madison... madison: if we have a baby girl i want to name her ella. mom: but the name has to start with an M so your names all start with the same letter. madison: but my name is shea.
• the other night darric worked late and the girls had to go to bed before he got home. on madi's way upstairs she told me to let her know when he got there so she could come down and give him a hug and a punch. the next morning, she came in my room while i was getting ready, darric was still sleeping. she wanted me to come downstairs with her to get a bottle of water and her gloves so she could punch dad.
On January 5th we had our first ultrasound. I was only about 13 weeks along so I didn't expect to find out what we were having (but I was hoping we would by accident). We did find out that everything looked good and the dates were all right on. At my appointment on February 17th we finally found out we were having a BOY! All four of us were at this appointment too and were very excited when the lady pointed out that it was a boy. The girls had to keep asking their dad if it was really a boy and when he told them yes, they laughed at him and told him he was wrong (for thinking it was going to be another girl). We made phone calls as soon as we got out of the office to let everyone know. Everyone was happy.
