Happy B-day to ME!

Well, law school finals are finally over! My last test was on my birthday, Dec. 12, from 6 - 10 PM...YUCK!

Anyway, I got home about 10:30 that night and Jessica surprised me with this huge birthday cake and presents! IT WAS DEEEEEEEE-LICIOUS!

IT'S A BOY!!!!!

Hello All!

Today has been one of the absolute best days of my entire life!

We went to the doctor today for our 20-week ultrasound and found out that we were having a BOY! After some gentle persuasion, our little fellow let us see right where it counts! While the nurse wouldn't say 100% sure if it was a boy, she stated that in her opinion it was as much as a boy as she had ever seen! HAHA! So, needless to say, we feel pretty dang confident about the sex of the baby!

Below are some of the pics from today (click on the picture to enlarge it). However, since I don't want my son (yes, I said "my son") to be black-mailed with naked pictures by some of you dirty rotten scoundrels in the future (HA!), I have chosen to keep the "money shots" off the blog for now. (I figured if anyone is going to use those as ammo for future embarrassment, it is going to be his parents! HAHA!!!!!)

Great shot of one of his hands!

Growing Baby

Well, the weeks are flying by and things are really starting to change! Jessica's stomach hasn't really grown too much over the past several months. However, we get the feeling that is about to change very quickly!

See below picture!!!

Jessica's Big 3-0!!!!

Well, the big 3-0 birthday bash wasn't what we all had imagined (due to her expecting condition, of course!)! Instead of partying and having a huge celebration, we settled for a pretty quiet and low key weekend.

However, as you know the two of us, we still had a lot of fun together!

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake made by Cody...Jessie's Favorite!

Belated B-Day for Mama Shelia!

Mama Shelia and Papa Joe were in Houston on October 3. So, Jessica and I took mom out for a nice seafood dinner for her belated birthday.

Once we got home, we surprised her with a birthday cake and a birthday card from her future grandchild....check out the pics.

Happy 1-Year Anniversary to US!

Happy 1-Year Annivesary to US!

We had our 1-year anniversary on June 3rd. We celebrated on Saturday by going out to a very nice restaurant and eating like kings (c'mon, you knew that is what I was going to do before you read this, didn't you!?)

Oh! Did I mention that I sent Jessica a small bouquet of red roses and stargazer lillies?

They smelled sooooo good too!

I also ordered Jessica a bottle of wine from a Corley Family Vineyard in Napa Valley, CA. I doubt there is any relation, but that it would be a neat surprise!
