It's a...

It's a



We are too thrilled! Of course, I was holding out for a girl, but as soon as I saw him I fell in love all over. He looked so much like Thompson. I just knew he HAD to be a boy. It was the sweetest thing. Thompson kept saying "Hi, Baby!". We had went to an ultrasound place and they had a huge projection screen that we watched. So just seeing him up there made him feel so real. We have decided on a name, Brycen Matthew Riedel. I am a stickler about names-- I prefer ones that I don't know anyone who has it. Luckily, I don't know a Brycen. But Matthew is my husband's middle name. So I LOVE it! :) Thankfully, Robert did too. He is pretty bad about shooting down names, so I was really happy when he loved Brycen. We actually couldn't decide between just Bryce or Brycen, but I love the extra something in Brycen. I could probably bore you forever talking about names, so I will move on ;P

Ok, since it is a boy, that means our wallet will definitely be a little fuller and we don't have to hardly buy anything for the baby. Thompson and Brycen will both be born around the same season, so that is great! Can we say hand-me-downs? So all I really need to buy is the bedding. I found a set that we like. Tell me what you think?

Happy 4th of July to everyone! We are so glad to be back home in Arkansas. Robert was so cute yesterday, driving to Fayetteville he waved at every car that passed. He said, "I am in Arkansas. I can wave at people!" Too funny. Today, we are spending the 4th down on the river fishing. Shanna and Haili Bug are coming up today. So fishing, camp fires with s'mores and hot dogs is the way to go. My dad and Robert are about to leave right now to get some time in before the kids scare all the fish away. Ha. Then tonight we are going to my Aunt's house for a cookout. I am making my yummy cheesecake right now. Oh, and it can't be the 4th without homemade milky way ice cream! YUM!!! Hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th!
