Baby Randomness...

So, this is my attempt at a response to being tagged by Emily & Kristi. I know it's rather late but what a better time to share a little information about our newest little miracle on the way. I know I didn't share much in the last post, but we just wanted to get the wonderful news out to everyone. So, here goes...

1.) My due date is June 1st... Anthony's sister's birthday, also the day after my dad's birthday. Once again this baby is coming right during a cluster of family birthdays. (But, I suppose that's pretty much impossible to avoid at this point.)
2.) This will be my parent's 18th grandchild & #8 for Anthony's parents (if you count our first baby angel...which my parent's always do.)
3.) I am 12 weeks as of today, Monday & I am already starting to show quite a bit. This time around is much different.

4.) Mackenzie & the new baby will be 20 months apart (the same age difference between myself & my sister, Amy); Isabella & Mackenzie are almost 19 months apart (the same age difference between Amy & my brother, Adam)
5.) If we're following any sort of pattern (in reverse order), my theory is that this baby must be a boy. Although, Anthony still thinks we're bound to have 5 or 6 girls before we get a boy. So far he has been right all 3 times...& I have been wrong every time. Isabella's guess is for a baby brother. Mackenzie just stares at me with a smile when I try to get an answer from her. Any guesses?
6.) Once again, we are not finding out the sex of our baby. It will be just as much a surprise to us as everyone else. Only 28 more weeks of waiting.;)

These are our 6 random baby facts. Instead of tagging 6 more people I am putting out a little challenge. I challenge all of my blog readers, family & friends, to start your own blog if you don't have one already. It really is so much fun & a great way to keep everyone updated in our lives. Especially with the holidays coming up, everyone is bound to have tons of great pictures to share. We love you all & hope everyone is doing well.

Halloween '08

Since Halloween was on Friday this year, of course that meant Friday night football. This has been what our Fridays have been consumed with since the beginning of September. It has been so much fun spending our Friday nights cheering on Paul Michael along with the rest of the Georgetown Eagles. It really brings us back to our high school days. Only this time around I actually get to cheer along side Anthony & the 2 biggest Georgetown Eagle fans I know, Isabella & Mackenzie. So, on Halloween night we decided to dress the girls up as "Eagle Princesses" rather than having them wear their typical Friday night t-shirts... & they just loved it!
The Eagles have had an excellent season. They won their last game of the season last week 24-0 & clinched a spot in the playoffs. How fitting is it that their first playoff game tomorrow is back in my 2nd hometown of College Station! So, off we are to Aggieland tomorrow morning to watch the Eagles in their first playoff game in 9 years!!! Gig 'Em Eagles!

Since we spent Halloween night at the football fields, we had our 3rd annual Halloween Party a day late on Saturday night. Anthony & I spent so much time preparing our costumes all week long. We barely finished them up just in time for the party. Introducing the Guajardo Backyardigans...

Birthday Surprise!

I had a wonderful birthday this year. I woke up early on Saturday to go out all by myself to get a much needed haircut. It's the first actual style I have had to my hair besides just long & straight since high school pretty much. I got a really yummy fruit bouquet from Anthony's family complete with chocolate covered strawberries & all...mmmm. Later in the day Anthony & I got to go see a movie while my parents took the girls to a Fall Festival for Mom's school. Then on Sunday, we had my family over for brunch after church. It was a great weekend. But, nothing could top this last present...
