Definitely a boy!

I can't believe it's taken so long to post the most recent ultrasound pics of Baby Solis (well, the 16 week sonogram. I'm now at 25 weeks!) It's quite evident we have a little boy on the way. :)

Strong Man Serg

OK, and I'm back (better late than never, right?) I feel like in just a few weeks my body has suddenly doubled in strange and new and uncomfortable as this feels, I have to admit that it's just way too fun to finally feel AND look pregnant. People can now see there's a reason I act the way I do.

A couple of weeks ago, both Sergio and I were able to take a weekend off and spend a couple of nights in Houston. We returned to the Houston temple for the first time since getting married there in November 2004 (not long after a temple was built in San Antonio which is only 3 1/2 hours away versus Houston's 7), which was nothing short of wonderful.

Then, last weekend, Serg suddenly decided to enter the "Strong Man Competition" at our local Gold's Gym. He ended up coming in FIRST PLACE in the Hummer pull (yep, exactly what it sounds like....they strapped him to a Hummer and he pulled it across the parking lot as fast as he could) and fifth place overall. It was incredibly fun to cheer him on, though I got my first sunburn of the spring/summer for sitting out in the blazing south TX sun for way too long! I took our cute little dachsund, Prince, along for company...the two of us, along with Serg's brother and friend, had a great time representing Team Solis.
