Well, no new pictures to post, but the big news this week is that my dad picked out a couple of boy names, just in case. I totally trust my dad's judgement which is why we are throwing into the ring the names Clem and Cletis. We were thinking about maybe doing a cool, modern spelling like Klem or Kletis, but we might just stick with a traditional spelling.
The news is really that the baby is kicking. Pretty weird, but really fun all at the same time. I love sitting quietly, slowing my breathing, and waiting for the baby to move. I had my hand on my belly yesterday and I felt the baby kick inside as well as outside. It's an incredible feeling to know that the baby is just growing and doing what babies do in utero.
In other Vancil family news, we are overjoyed and feel so incredibly blessed that JJ's sister Emily will be marrying JJ's good friend (incidentally, Emily's boyfriend) Jason sometime this summer. We were fortunate enough to be able to go to Leavenworth to celebrate with them and what a celebration is was. Emily and Jason are the kind of people who separately have the ability to make you feel like a million bucks. However, together this energy, passion, and love pours from them in such an incredible way. We are more than excited to have Jason in our family because not only is he giving Emily the love she deserves, but he also cares for us in great ways. He is also weird enough to be able to handle each personality in our family while adding his unique flavor that we all love so well.
So the Vancil family expands by two more people this summer and we couldn't be more pleased--our cheeks hurt so much from smiling all the time:)
