The Results Are In

The Results Are In.... 

We are having a little boy! I mean, in this family, was there any other possibility? We are so excited.  I guess the little blue harness was foreshadowing something after all. 

Here's the little guy sucking his thumb.

Such a happy little guy resting on his pillow

In Which We Almost Make an Announcement

So, fun news this week! We had thought that we were going to find out if our baby is a boy or a girl at 20 weeks, but since we're going to be out of town, the doctor said that we could find out at eighteen! That's this next Friday! So, in honor of that, let the guessing begin! I'm even making a poll here for your guessing convenience!

Will Cliff and Nancy's baby be a boy or a girl?

So go ahead and weigh in! We'll be sure to let the world know when we find out! We will be happy with either one, of course, but we think it will probably be a girl, since combined in both of our families there is only one girl grandchild so far. That's how the odds on these things work, right? Keep an eye on this page for the coming news!

In Which We Climb a Peak

So, it's been a while since we've gotten out hiking, at least with a camera. We went canyoneering on Veteran's Day, which was fun, though we got a little lost (nothing bad, I was never actually lost. I knew how to get back where I had come from, just not where I was going). Anyway, it's been a nice Thanksgiving break, and for the last day (we totally get Monday off) we decided to do a hike. We hit one of the most popular hikes in the Phoenix area, Piestewa Peak, also known as Squaw Peak. It was a good time. Pretty short, but it had a great view at the top. Here are some pictures.

I look awesome, in case you didn't notice.

So, it was a fun outing. Just took a couple hours, and wasn't too difficult, which was good for Nancy. In other news, our baby is doing great. Also, we've been doing a little do it yourself project, completing a dresser that we bought on craigslist. We bought it from the lady without the cloth on the inside of the drawers, and Nancy has been gluing it in and I've been putting on the hardware. So, that's all we've got for the moment. This is Captain Danger out.
