As some of you may know, Josh and I went in for our 19 week ultrasound, with hopes that poppyseed would show us what he or she is! And right away, she said yup, it's a boy and that is very obvious! It was so neat to see him since the last time we saw him he was not even a 1/4 of an inch long and now he is looking more like a little human! Josh and I are super excited for a boy! We already had our names picked out so he is going to be Jakson Earnest Burfitt. We loved the name Jackson, but I wanted to make him a little bit different then all of the other Jacksons out there. Josh comes from a long line of Earnests, so we knew our first boy had to be an Earnest as well.
The Doctor said that everything is looking great as far as the baby's organs and everything on my end looks. We were thrilled to hear the good news. We ask that you continue to keep the three of us in your prayers.
It is also looking like our due date will now be November 26, which would mean he would be a Thanksgiving baby!!
We wanted to make the announcement to our family in a different way, so we had everyone come to dinner at On the Border the night of our appointment. I made cupcakes and dyed the inside of them blue. I told them that when they peel back the wrapper it would let them know if it was a boy or a girl. So after they were all passed out, everyone opened theirs to see that it was blue!! Most people thought I was having a girl so I knew it would surprise some people! Everyone was so thrilled :) I just have to take a minute to brag about my awesome family! Josh and I feel so blessed with a family that is always there for us and constantly shows us how much they love us! I really do thank the Lord everyday for placing me in such an amazing family and letting me marry into one as well. I LOVE MY FAMILY!!
We got some of the cutest outfits for little Jakson last night. He is going to have an adorable little wardrobe. I know Ash and Matthew are excited about handing lots of clothes down to us and so am I :)

What a crazy but FUN weekend. Josh and I both had Friday off, so he went and played golf and I hung out at Chrissi's pool. When Josh was done with golf he came over to Chrissi's. We decided to spend the night there since we would all have to wake up early for the Peachtree and her place was a lot closer than our place. The next morning we woke up about 5am and got ready for the race. We had so much fun getting ready and heading there. Once we got there Josh headed for the 70,000's to run with Jason and Chrissi and I headed to the back of the heats for the 90,000's. We had so much fun running together and we actually did a lot better than we thought we would have done! I got a lot of "congrats" as people ran by us and Chrissi got a lot of "you can do it Newbie!" We were so happy we wrote things on our shirts because it made it so fun! After the race we found Josh and Jason and went and searched for food and drinks. Then we found Mom and Dad who had come to cheer us on!! After the race Bobby came and picked us up and took us back to chrissi's. Josh and I dropped his truck off at the square so that we could have it there later for a great tailgating spot for fireworks! Then we headed to Josh and Summer's pool for their 4th of July Party. There was lots of yummy bar-b-que and sides and delicious homemade icecream. It was a fun day of swimming and hanging out with family! After that we headed to the Marietta Square for fireworks and Marietta Pizza Company! What a long but fun day :) Sunday consisted of sleeping and being lazy!!
