Billy's Baby: Eight Weeks Old

So I am VERY behind on blogging!! THREE weeks have passed since I last posted about the house.

Since then:

Billy was diagnosed with allergies and left on a mission trip to the Philippines

I was left as the woMAN in charge

Raegen was out of school for Spring Break

My dad came and helped me finish MANY, MANY projects around the house

I was very, VERY sore from working on those many projects!!

Lynden started walking

Billy returned from the Philippines and was worse for wear with his health...he returned to the doctor and they diagnosed him with asthma

Some wonderful ladies at church held a sweet baby shower for me and baby girl

We welcomed a new baby into the family

We celebrated a birthday within the family

Billy left for another trip, this time to Indiana to watch one of our favorite guys play baseball

Again, I was the woMAN in charge of the house

Billy returned home VERY sick

He made yet another trip to the doctor and it was confirmed he has pneumonia!! Work has sloooooowed drastically on the house, but we are still on schedule to be finished before baby girl arrives. Our greatest concern is the ground being too wet to put in our septic system. I "think" we have decided to dig a few trenches to drain the ground where needed and get that in place ASAP {before another BIG rain!!}. If that can get accomplished we could realistically be "move-in" ready at the end of April.

Here's the progress from the last THREE weeks!!

Poll has closed. It's a BOY!!!

Take the poll located on the right side of the screen. Will we be having another baby boy or a baby girl? What do you think?

If it's any help, I haven't had any dreams {like I did with Raegen, dreaming I was having a boy} and I just don't have that "feeling" with this baby. I did have severe morning sickness that lasted through week 15, quite unlike my mild morning sickness that ended at week 12 with Raegen. That info may help or confuse you more! I'm anxious to see what everyone else thinks we're having.

Is baby #3 a boy or a girl?
