News Flash!!!!

A preview of whats to come!

My little bump!!!

Yes this is major news for the Heintzelman/Downer clan; and also for all of our friends and extended family!

May 20th we plan to welcome a new little one into our home. We are both very excited to meet this new little person! We plan to wait until delivery to find out if its a boy or girl. Andy is hoping for a boy & i'm fine either way.

Christmas weekend was the weekend for us to spill our news. I knew I wouldn't be able to hide it from my mom, since she hadn't seen me in four months so at the airport I pulled out the ultrasound pictures and handed them to her in an envelope on the way to baggage claim. She had alredy been "checking" me out and thought i had gained some wieght! Needless to say, they were both extremely excited and of course, dad couldn't hold back the tears.

On Sunday morning we broke the news to Andy's family. Of course, some of them already wondered if I was!

Below are a few pictures to enjoy. The ultrasound picture is a little blurred since i tried to take a picture of it, but you can still see the head and little nose.

Happy New Year!
