Here are a few pictures of Hawai'i (the big island). I won't bore anyone with too many - I had some really great photos, but somehow they are now missing off my computer, I am really bummed and perplexed.
Gregg cliff jumped off the southern most point of the United States at Ka Lae. It was 50 feet (we decided it was not a good idea for a pregnant woman)
Mauna Kea is a large volcano on Hawaii (13, 796 feet). We could not go all the way to the top because of my pregnancy - but we went to the visitor center and did a little hike up a peak to see the sun set. That night they got out powerful telescopes for us to see the stars (including Jupiter's moons). It was VERY cold that high up!

Here he is. No shame, he basically did the splits for us! It's a boy. My intuition from the beginning has been that it was a boy. Gregg thought for sure it was a girl so I think he was shocked at first.
The pregnancy so far has been just fine. Thanks to all those who have been so helpful and thoughtful. It got off to a painful start when at 8 weeks I broke out in shingles. Then we could not find a heartbeat for 4 weeks in a row. My uterus was growing and I was throwing up everyday (signs of a healthy pregnancy). Finally at about 12 weeks they did an ultra sound and everything looked great. Due the middle of April.
(in this photo you are looking up at his bum cheeks, legs, and boy parts!)
