Team Green it is!

Sorry to disappoint folks!  I went to the ultrasound school this afternoon for attempt three at gender determination, and naturally the baby was still in breech position.  I told you I wasn't hopeful, and I meant it.


  • Full bladder
  • Half-full bladder
  • Empty bladder
  • Jumping jacks
  • Eating and drinking
I have experienced few sensations more uncomfortable than a half-full bladder, but it was worth the effort. 

We would have loved to have known who is in my belly, but its not the worst thing in the world.  While the tech was trying to catch a money shot, the baby was kicking in response to the probe, and it was the cutest thing to watch the kicks on the screen and feel the kicks at the same time.  That moment made me fall even more in love with our little one. 

So we're officially batting for Team Green, and that means...GREEN COOKIES FOR EVERYONE!  Yay!  I'm going to list all the peeps I have down for a bet either way: 

Casey, mama, dad, Fallon, Cole, Bonnie, Alan, Derek, Zack, Julie, Meg, Stacy, Jenn, Kristie, Liz, Carrie, Shelby, Emma, Georgette, Denise, Beth, Linda, and Rebecca.  (If I missed you, email/text/comment and I will surely get you your cookie)

And now, I will leave you with a pic of Baby Shelton:

Good night peeps!

PS - Today marks the day we announced Baby Shelton to the Facebook world.  Crazy stuff, its like official now.  LOL
