The Signs are Everywhere

Hello Friends!
I can't believe the summer is coming to an end... Just 2 more weeks and I'll be back at school, getting ready for another year! I hope to get a lot done during the rest of the time that I have.  But it's going to be a lot of work seeing that this is what our little girl's room looks like right now...

YIKES! Speaking of our little girl, I think it's time we start calling her by her name!
If you know me, you know that I'm a planner. So Bobby and I have had names picked out for our baby for a lOoOoOng time! All we needed to do was find out if it would be the boy name or girl name we liked. So now that we know it's a little girl we can start calling her...
It was so easy to pick the name Greer! Bobby's Grandmother's name was Virginia Greer and his sister, Melissa's, name was Melissa Greer (before she took Wynns as her middle name)! We loved the name for our little girl and it was done.  In case you're wondering, her middle name is Paisley which I have heard a few different times as a name and love that it adds a little creative flair! So, the weird thing is that I just knew that when we went to find out if we were having a boy or girl, it would be a girl. I didn't really let on, because I didn't want to jinx myself or be embarrassed if I was wrong. How did I know, you ask? Well, it was just a feeling but also, the signs were EVERYWHERE! Let me explain...

We started "shopping" online and created a registry on pretty early on, just to kind of get a head start. Of course, we had boy things and girl things on our list. As we started shopping for strollers, I found one that I really liked, the Graco Alano in pink and black... in fact when I looked closer at the different color choices I noticed the actual pattern is called "Greer!" Ok, that's really funny!

Then, a few weeks went by and we finally spilled the beans to our families and put the news on our blog. After the news had been up on the blog for a while I went back to look at the post I had written and I noticed someone from Greer, SC had been on our blog... Um, ok. Kinda weird!

Then, I called my Mom-- who was heading to our family's cabin in NC for vacation-- to tell her about that and before I could get it out of my mouth she said, "I just turned the t.v. on at the cabin and there was a commercial for a car dealership in Greer!" I just couldn't help but laugh!

Then, last but not least, when we were in Destin for 4th of July weekend Bobby noticed the beach house around the corner from us had a sign on it... guess what it said?!?! "The Greers'"

Now, if that's not some crazy stuff, I don't know what is...

It's a...

Last Monday we had our 19 week Ultrasound and after much speculation, we found out we have a little girl!  We are so very excited! We wanted to share some of the pics from the appointment. Enjoy!

Here are her little feet that like to kick!

 This is her profile, notice her little fist above her head! "YEAH!"

This is my favorite picture of her... I love how she looks like she's just lounging... It also looks like she's got my long, skinny legs!

Boy or Girl?

So, just to have a little fun we've tried all kinds of different methods to predict if we're gonna see a little boy or a little girl on that sonogram screen on Monday! The first thing we did was check out the Chinese Gender Chart...
According to this ancient legend we're having a BOY!

We've also put out a poll on our blog to see what our friends and family are feeling... Although we've only got 18 votes, the results are GIRL by a lot!

This predictor was a little more "in the middle." I found this "Old Wives Tales" test online and it says we are having a GIRL!
Our last predictor is a tradition in my family. Whenever someone is pregnant in our family my Uncle Johnny does the Nail-on-a-String Pendulum. Hold the nail over the belly. If the nail swings in a circle-- it's a girl. if it sways back and forth-- it's a boy. His record is pretty impressive-- correct 18 out of 20 tests!
So we had him perform the pendulum predictor on me and our results were circle! GIRL! 
As a little side note my Uncle usually hangs the nail over the person's head to show that it will swing in the correct motion. So I did the test over Bobby, and sure enough it swayed back and forth. Funny, huh!?!

So those are the results of our silly predictor tests... We know that they could be tOtAlLy WrOnG. But luckily we'll find out the real answer tomorrow! 
Maybe a Girl, Maybe a Boy, Definitely LOVED!

4th of July

Hi friends!
Did you enjoy your holiday? We had a great time at the beach with friends! Bobby and I drove to Destin on Friday to enjoy the weekend with our friends Jase and Lindsey from Alabama. Saturday we got a rental boat and took it out to Crab Island. Sunday we went to the beach and dinner. It was a perfect little weekend to visit with friends and enjoy the Summer!
Back in Gainesville, my Mom, Aunt Shari and Katy Jo met up at my house to do a little visiting. So Bobby and I headed back from Destin. We got back to Gainesville just in time for some burgers off the grill and a few fireworks!  Here are some pics from the weekend! Enjoy!
