It's A BOY!

I know most of you have heard the news by now... but if not Madeline is going to have a little brother! Sorry its taken us so long to post, but we found out last Tuesday before heading down to Mississippi for a week. We got back on Monday, but y'all know how busy the first couple of days are getting back on a routine. So here is our precious little boy, Rivers Judson Frantz! Rivers is after my mom. It's her middle name and she was named after her grandfather Rivers, so it goes back on my mom's side of the family quite a bit. Judson is after some of our favorite missionaries, Adoniram and Ann Judson. We are so excited and most of all grateful that he is healthy. Here are some pics from the ultrasound. We can't wait to meet him in just 4 months!

There is no doubt... he's a boy!

The ultrasound tech said he looked laid back here he has his feet crossed.

We had a really great time in Mississippi! We got to relax for a couple of days and be there to celebrate both mom and dad's birthday. It was nice to get down south for a week of warm weather. The week before leaving we had a huge snow/ice storm that knocked out our power for 2 days. Mike was so energized from the sun that he spent a whole morning washing mom's, dad's, and our car! Also because of the nice weather, Maddie had her first trip to the park. She loved the swing and slide! That weekend I was a bridesmaid in Katie West (now Diggs) wedding. I got to see a lot of old friends from high school that I hadn't seen since graduation. It was busy but a lot of fun. If we didn't already know, we confirmed that Maddie is quite the extrovert. She partied with us at the reception until 10... which is way past her bedtime. She waved and talked to everyone all night, and she especially loved the dancing! It was the first time we have really seen her dance, and I have to say the child has got some rhythm. Here are some pics for y'all to enjoy from the weekend.

First time at the park... So much fun!

I think we have a little ballerina or gymnast on our hands (thanks to aunt Susan for the cute clothes she made!)
