not only did we find out we were having a little boy yesterday, Derek got to feel the baby move for the first time! my placenta is posterior (meaning it's behind the baby, between my back and the baby) so it pushes the baby forward a bit and I can feel him a LOT more a lot sooner.
AND we got the kids some kittens. which their sole purpose in my eyes is to kill all the mice in our yard. which are ridiculous. but they are IN LOVE. and they have already learned to run from Noah. we got them last night after they went to bed and I surprised them this morning. they were BURSTING with excitement. it was hilarious. Noah kept saying "tetee!" and giggling. it was SO fun.

I looooove this picture. I love how Noah has the kitten by the neck and his head is all twisted. hahahahah don't worry. he's fine. ;)

surprised? yes. we ALL are. we were ALL convinced we were having a girl. but we are very excited to be having another little guy! We wanted either really. just wanted the baby to be healthy. which he is. SO healthy in fact that his due date got moved up to Oct 14th. WOOT! baby's name will be Owen Derek Anderson. SO excited that Noah gets a little play buddy who is so close to his age. we CAN'T wait!!!
