It's A..........

GIRL!!!!  In case you couldn't tell by the new look of our blog.....we found out today that we are having a little girl! We were shocked to find out that the little baby inside of me was a girl because we had been convinced it was a boy this whole time. However, we are absolutely thrilled. My parents and Garrett's parents both came down to attend the ultrasound so they could see their first grandchild!

We have some wonderful time with our families over the past week. We have gotten to spend time with ALL of our siblings....which is amazing since they are so spread out....Greenville, California, and South Korea.  I know we both feel so blessed to have had this time with them.

Garrett's parents got us a really cool video camera for Christmas, so I will definitely try to post some of those soon.  Some of them are truly hilarious.  Anyway, I hope everyones holidays were as wonderful as ours were!

Strep Throat

I think there is only one word that describes the current state of Team Reed....Exhausted!!!! The store finally opened on December 11th, and I think we are all thankful to have that behind us. While it was a wonderful experience and everything went great, I don't think either of has been this tired in quite some time (hopefully this is good prep for bringing the baby home).  We are definitely still sorting through things and trying to get settled in at the store but the hardest part seems to be behind us.  

However, we are now experiencing the wrath of working that much for that long.  After multiple 80 hour weeks, Garrett has come down with Strep Throat. He had a fever and felt pretty terrible all week but after a day off continued to try to work through it.  However, after a visit to the doctor this morning...Garrett is officially in rest mode and on a few different drugs. Hopefully we can get him well before the family begins to arrive on Wednesday.

Since we are unable to get time off over the holidays, our families have graciously agreed to come spend Christmas with us in Charleston.  My parents, my sister, my brother-in-law, and my Nanna will all be here on Wednesday!!!!  Then Garrett's whole family, parents, grandparents, brother and his wife, and sister and her new boyfriend are all going to be here for the whole week after Christmas.  I cannot wait to spend time with everyone!!!  We are so spread out from all of our siblings these days so we are thrilled to get some time with them.

In addition, our big doctors appointment in December 30th, so all of the families will be around to see if we are going to be having a little boy or a little girl.  We are so excited to see our little baby again and pray that it is healthy and doing well.  I will definitely post after that d doctors visit.

Hope everyone is doing well and hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
