Pumpkin Festival!

We went to the Pumpkin Festival at a local orchard this year. The weather was perfect...sunny but a bit cool. Here are Evan and Daddy checking out the pumpkin chunker. It hit the tractor when we were watching!

And our family is growing...

The Mears family is growing!

This is the real reason I haven't been updating this blog like I am supposed to. All-day-sickness (aka nausea and vomiting) have taken over my life all of August and September. I'm still not 100% by any means. So I apologize for neglecting Evan's blog! Evan is going to be a big brother! His little sister or brother is due April 6, 2010. In the ultrasound picture taken above, the baby is about 9 weeks along.

Here are some more pictures from another ultrasound taken on September 24 (around 12 weeks). Profile picture...Check out the foot...Face...Another profile picture...
We find out whether the baby will be a boy or girl on November 2. I've asked Evan if he wants a baby brother or sister and he's says, "Sister!". Then I say, "a girl or boy?" and he says, "boy!". So he doesn't really know what he wants. But he is aware that there is a baby in Mommy's belly. It makes me tear up when he kisses my belly ("the baby"). Too sweet!
