Who doesn't love a pony?

Here is our new pony Cinnamon.  My dad surprised everyone yesterday by buying a family pony.  He is 5 months old and his back is only about 3 1/2 feet tall.  He will get bigger but he is half Shetland pony so not too big.  All the grandkids screamed and jumped up and down when we told them.  It will be so fun for the kids to have a pony, my grandpa always had a pony for the grandkids and it was a fun memory growing up.

We had a friend of ours take a quick peek at our little bundle a couple weeks ago and she thought it was a girl.  After having a party to celebrate (wished I had taken pictures), we had our official doctor ordered ultrasound yesterday.  Well, our second opinion said it was a girl too.  We are excited for Belle to have a sister and that we can use all the cute baby clothes we already have.  Belle has a hard time saying sister, it sounds like sisser, so we are calling the baby "sissy" for now. Just a side note, my due date the doctor gave me is February 9 (I thought the 10th based on my own calculations before my first appointment but we will go with what the doc says).
