Snips and Snails...

and puppy dog tails,
That's what little BOYS are made of!It's official... we will be adding another BOY to the mix come November!
Introducing Perry Daniel Harless
(Perry -maiden name, Daniel -mothers middle & great grandfathers name)
The evidence...
Wes and I were able to find out 2 weeks early the gender of our little miracle. My mothers friend offered to do a quick gender ultrasound because I have been OBSESSING over finding out for the last couple of weeks!! Thanks so much Julie! As soon as the ultrasound began I had all types of emotions. I had been looking forward to this moment for weeks! This pregnancy so far has been a mirror image of the last so naturally I felt it was another boy. Although my mother (who is notorious for guessing the correct gender) insisted that it was a GIRL... not to mention the 70% gender vote was for GIRL! As she rolled over my belly looking for the answer to the gender mystery... I saw it! I knew exactly what passed across the screen... I so proudly exclaimed, "That was a Penis! We are having another boy... right?" She looked a little longer and said, "I am 99.9% that you are in fact having another boy!" I have been thrilled ever since that moment at noon last Friday. Let's face it... I'm a boy mom! York and I love to dig in the dirt, play with trucks and tractors, throw balls, get dirty, and take NAPS! I am so excited that York will have a brother to play with and show the "ropes". I was having a hard time picturing myself buying the pink tu-tu's and bows. I will spoil our friends little girls with that kinda stuff and thank the Lord that I wont have to deal with the day to day girly drama! We are a MAN-ZONE here at the Harless House and I cannot picture it any other way! We will begin work on York's big boy room immediately and the overhaul of Perry's nursery!
Our trip to Chateau Elan...
We had a great time... a RELAXING weekend with conversations that began with "Can you believe we are going to have 2 boys?" or "We can say -the kids- now!" or "What are we going to do with 2 little rascals?" and "Can you believe it is another boy!!"... It finally somewhat sunk in and we began to enjoy each other ALONE! No interruptions -we sat at the pool and I was able to read an ENTIRE book in one sitting... Wes was able to work on his tan and played some golf. We enjoyed an amazing couples massage, 24 hour room service, delicious meals (that I didn't make!), and much needed adult conversation. Overall it was a long overdue mini-vacation. Thanks Mom and Rafe for watching our little man while we were gone. I am sure he was spoiled beyond imagination. I really missed that little booger and was glad to be reunited on Sunday afternoon.
The place was really beautiful!



Glad to be back to the real world... and enjoying ever slobbery kiss and hug from York. I sure missed those! Now... on to getting things ready for Perry! Enjoy your week everyone and try to stay COOL! Much love to everyone...

Congrats!!! You knew it would be a boy!! That was so nice of your mom's friend to do an early ultrasound. In fact, my mom's friend is doing an early one for me too. We find out next Friday!! Maybe Perry will have a bud to play with. =)
