   Posted 4/27/2008 12:36 AM (GMT -6)'s exciting (and alot of work) we kept the first one a secret but I definitely wanted to know what the second one was going to be (first was a girl, second a boy)...get plenty of rest now, you never know how active a baby will keep you...especially over the next 18 yrs or so.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
