We're having a girl!

Well, we had our first ultrasound last week. It looks as though we are having another wonderful, healthy, little girl. Stephen, Pear and I are thrilled! I think it will be perfect. Pear is going to have a playmate and best friend for life. And I don't have to buy a thing because I already have all of the girl clothes that I need.

Her name is Jovie Blythe Backholm. The reason? Because we like it. For the record, Pear is named Pear Zinovia because we like the name as well. It has nothing to do with the movie Princess Diaries! I have had people ask me if it's because of the Ginovian Pear?! No. Her middle name is Zinovia after her great-great-grandmother. Her first name is Pear because we like it.

I have attached a couple of pictures of Jovie. Can you decipher them?

A day at the Hobby Farm

Pear and I decided to drive down to my parents' for the afternoon. Pear absolutely loves to go to Mammy and Pappy's house. I'm not sure which she prefers: the goats, the chickens, the bunnies, the dog, the cat, the peacocks, the horses, the kids or the toys. She likes them all! Today, Piper rode Mac while we were there and Pear just had to get on him with her. So here is a picture of her first horse ride. What do you think of Pear's outfit? That's what you get for not changing the diaper before you leave the house. She had to borrow Libbi's clothes.
