I am going to be a Big Brother!!!

There has been a flurry of activities going on at home recently. Lots of packing, shopping and cleaning going around. Then came a little crib, a stroller and loads of tiny pink baby clothes hanging in the laundry area.

Yes, you guessed it! We are expecting a baby girl in our family very soon and in fact, any time now!

That's me sniffing at Baby Ashley.

It is so amazing what technology can do these days and I would like to share with you a 4D ultrasound scan of Ashley in mommy's womb when she was just 28 weeks old. She even opened her eyes when Daddy called out her name!

Now, I am off to summer camp at Sue's Horse Farm while we await the arrival of my baby sister. I will be back in a week or two. Paws crossed for a smooth and safe delivery for mommy!!! Watch this space for our exciting updates!!!

Congrats to Dino's parents!
Whoa, you sure know how to keep a secret, Dino!
I watched the 4D video over and over, so amazing! Baby Ashley opened her eyes to wink at her parents, WOW, that was miracle! My mom ooohed and ahhhed the whole time and made my dad watching too.
This' the first time I ever watch one, in the States my mom's friend says insurance won't cover for 4D ultrasound, she wish she had one.
Take care Dino's family.
Congrats again and wishing Dino's Mom a safe labor and delivery.
Please keep us updated, Dino.

Oh Dino, so nice to find your blog again.... when we clicked on your picture in our blog's comment section to visit you, we couldn't find the link to your blog in your profile ... Luckily, we found it in google search. and now we are saving the URL =D we no longer have to click on your profile to visit your blog (thats the way that we always did with all our blogging pals when visiting their blogs to check on updates)
mommy just discovered that the "following" blog idea is a pawsome one so that it helps us not to miss a new post .. all the new ones from our pals come to us directly to our dashboard blogger page! How cool is that ^_^

keeping your mommy in our thoughts and wishing her a safe delivery
