Well just wanted to give all of you an update. We just found out that we are expecting baby #3. We are excited, but I am nervous all at the same time. I was going to wait until San Antonio to spill the beans, but o well. I do have one request, please do not mention anything on facebook as family does not know yet. They will be less than thrilled.
