You would have thought there was a full moon, but there wasn't. Just something in the water, I guess... From Tues., Aug. 12 through Thurs., Aug. 14, we welcomed 3 new babies into the world. Well, not "we", but our close friends. Halle Madelyn was born first, to Cortney & Jonas. Then Andrew Gerard to Valerie & Jim, and finally (2 weeks early!), Daniel Ryan born to Sue & Dan. All moms and babies are doing well! We look forward to meeting Halle and Andrew in the coming weeks, but caught our first glimpse of Danny tonight. What a beautiful boy!
We also brought our 5th month of pregnancy to a close this week by finishing our 22nd week. Baby Boy Eatherton is getting quite active, letting Mom know that her pants are getting a little tight and he'd like more room to move! We even had our first case of the hiccups this week; Matt got a "kick" out of seeing my stomach move with each hiccup.
Here is a not so pretty picture to mark the occasion!

After returning from paradise, we had our 20 week ultrasound yesterday and got to see our little peanut up close and personal. And speaking of personal (no "hide the weenie" for our little man), we got to see that "it" was a "he"!! We're so excited that we're having a little boy! On our way to the doctor's appointment, the hot topic was, "what color White Sox jersey will we be getting?!" and now we know that it's blue! Here are a couple of shots from the big day...
What a crazy two weeks it has been. Last week, Matt and I had an amazing time in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, attending our friends Bambi and Brian's wedding (congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Flaherty!) As if attending their wedding wasn't enough, we were lucky to be on the island for the Turks & Caicos Music Festival and spent our last evening rocking out to Lionel Ritchie..."all night long!!" (literally; Lionel didn't come on stage until 1am!) Below are a couple of pics from the trip and a video from the concert. We had a great time hanging out with everyone and thank the Coopers and Flahertys for asking us to be a part of their special day.
