Rollin'... Rollin' down the River

Last week we had some friends come from the States and treat us to a wonderful "joy ride" down the Nile. It was so relaxing and beautiful. We enjoyed seeing the fisherman out looking for a daily catch, swimmers enjoying the coolness of the water (or bathing... we're not sure!), and the beautiful sunset.

It's a... BABY!!

Well, we have been very excited to find out what our little bundle of joy will be, and have been anxiously awaiting the doctor's ultrasound to know for sure. We are thankful for all who took part in our "Baby Rhyne" poll and the results were: 27 of you think BOY, and 20 of you think GIRL.
When we were in Jordan in January, I was only 11 weeks along in the pregnancy. But, the doctor was confident in his percentage (90-something % sure) it was a BOY!! So, for the past 10 weeks we have been thinking and planning for little baby boy Rhyne to arrive in early August. I even bought some clothes that were *Tar-Heel* blue! So, we went this past week to the doctor here and were very surprised when the doctor said he was 90-something % sure it is a GIRL! My new theory is that we are actually having twins, one boy and one girl, and they just like to take turns being in the picture! (Doubtful... but why not?) So, we have started down the "neutral path" of picking baby clothes... not convinced of either boy or girl yet!
I'm thankful to be feeling much better and to be past what seems to have been a very long few months of morning (or all day) sickness and nausea. My tummy is starting to stick out more and more and, in recent weeks felt little one kick! We are so thankful and praise the Lord for the life he is forming inside of me. We will keep you posted on any new results or details we find out in coming weeks!
