So...MUCH to our surprise after many many people including Hayes and myself were convinced we were having a girl..... it is in fact a BOY! We are thrilled!! It was amazing seeing our little guy on that big screen. He was so busy yesterday moving around like crazy...busy? Where would he get all that energy from?? hmm.. :) Anyway, he is measuring 9 days bigger but the doc says everything looks great!!! It made it so much more real to actually see him moving in there and to know we can now say "he"!!! Cohen Hayes will be his name. We had thought it would be Cohen Pearce (Pearce is a family name) but since this is the first born and it is a son.... We are going to have him named after his amazing papa! Hayes is so excited. He has already started talking about what position he will play in baseball!! Poor kid...he has no choice! :) Also, I think to really make it sink in that it is a boy I HAD to go buy a couple of things yesterday. Thank goodness for Old Navy's $5 baby sale...I did not break the bank. In fact, I only bought 3 things that did include his first pair of jeans (0-3mon) and I might add that they are sooooo cute!!!!

The man of my dreams entered the world, and man am I glad he did!! This is just a short post to honor my hubby and the amazing man he is!
I am so thankful to the Lord for a man that loves Him and seeks after His heart everyday. He loves the Lord and desires His will for our lives and that is such a comforting feeling. He makes me feel safe and loved and never leaves me wondering if he will stick with me. At a recent marriage conference at the church, Pastor Chris talked about the safety in a marriage of knowing that the "D" word is not even in your vocabulary as a couple, and that leaving is not an option. I thought to myself then, that is exactly how I feel. I know that no matter what happens in our lives, Hayes WILL be here. I love that marriage is an adventure and there is NO ONE else in this entire world that could make it more fun than Hayes Kearbey. I can't wait to begin this new stage in our lives as parents....wow...parents! (it still gets me sometimes) I know he will be the most amazing papa any child could ask for. He makes me laugh daily and never ceases to let me know that I am loved and cherished by him. I am so proud of where he has come from and the testimony that he has of what the Lord has done in his life and how he is walking out that testimony each and every day. I love the way that he influences people and how his leadership is evident in the lives that he touches. He makes me so proud to be "Mrs. Hayes Kearbey" and I am so glad that God has blessed me with the prince charming that I always dreamed of.
So...to you babe on your birthday...know that you are loved, respected, and honored by me!!!
My cup runneth over!!

I get so down on myself when I see others who blog like every day...or least every other..I mean mine has been almost 2 weeks! Oh well, I guess I will get better with time :)
So we are now less than 2 weeks away from finding out what we are having and oh man is it killing me to wait. I am very low in the patience area. I mean, I have patience when it comes to old people walking too slow, or babies crying because they feel bad. But I have always had this bad habit I guess you could call it of when I get something on my mind and I want it..I want it now! For instance.....
When I was in I think the 5th grade I decided I needed a hair cut, and I needed it now! So my mom called the regular lady that usually cut my hair and she did now have any appointments for maybe a day or two....I insisted on getting my hair cut right away. I convinced my mom to take me to Head Start down the street for just a trim (yep...you know where this story is going). I probably bugged her so much she thought "fine, we'll go get your hair cut..." So, without needing to explain, the trim that I wanted turned into the worst hair cut of my life...SERIOUSLY. My hair was one length in the front and like 5 in. shorter in the back and it resulted in having to get it "fixed" then meaning...looking like a boy! I cried for days!!!!!
All this to say is that I guess God is helping me in my patience area because I have NO CHOICE but to wait until the 24th to find out. Well, except for the idea my friend Whitney gave me on here to go to Virginia College and they will do them earlier for free.....see, I am learning to be patient...I am waiting until the 24th. :)
