It's A Girl for the Randers!

We are so very pleased to announce that a sweet baby girl will be joining our family in May! No, not to Travis and I, but to TJ & Cassie. Trav & I hope to find out the sex of our little one in 2 short weeks- Jan 9th!!! Our pregnancy is progressing beautifully. I am 17 weeks prego, have gained 5 1/2 lbs, am starting to "show" a bit and feel the occasional flutterings of our nugget...which are becoming more & more frequent. Baby Epperson weighs about 4 oz and is approximately the size of my hand spread wide open!!! We were able to hear the baby's heart beat again last week...which is beating at a rate of 146-150 beats per minute. Rhonda (Dr. Owen's nurse & a friend of ours from church) gave us her "unofficial guess" as to the sex of the baby....she confirmed what the sonographer, Dr. Owen, and every old wives tale, pencil & ring test have all attested to- a BOY!!!! We'll soon see!
Hope you all had a wonderful christmas with your families...we certainly did as I turned the big 2-9 & enjoyed my very favorite time of year with those we love most- an amazing reminder of how incredibly blessed we are!

Epperson McNugget!!!

Thought I would share some pics of our precious baby taken at my sonogram last Wednesday. It was incredible to watch as our little one kicked, turned, sucked his/her thumb & moved about! Dr. Hales said that we have a very photogenic baby (& may I add... active baby thanks to the cherry, vanilla, cream Dr. Pepper that I downed right before the sonogram!) who seems to be developing as hoped. Praise God!!! He was also kind enough to give us his educated suspicion as to the sex of the baby at this point in development...all signs point to our little nugget being a sweet baby boy, but we'll have to wait until January 21st to confirm the sex. Travis and I will, of course, be elated either way, but a little boy would be oh, so fun!!! We'll keep you all posted~

Sweetest profile in the world...

Sucking his/her cute!

Legs kicking mom...innocently enough- for now!
