It's a girl

IT'S A GIRL!! We had the ultrasound on tuesday and it was so fun! She moved so much that they were having a hard time getting a good picture. hahah I knew she moved a lot. I can feel her already. We are so excited!! This is the first grandchild on both sides of the family, and the first girl in Dakota's family. His mom had all boys so she was overjoyed when we told her!! Here are some names we like so far:

Araylie Kim Atkinson: this is probably the one we like the best because it's different but pretty

Dakota loves Araylie so I think it might be it but we aren't sure.

So I was watching Lost the other day (love that show) and I just thought of something in psychology that is interesting to me. So in the show Jacob states he brings people to the Island so they can learn from experience, meaning they can learn about the island themselves. Now the bad dude, whatever his name is, the black smoke, just wants to get off the island and thinks it's stupid that Jacob brings people to the island. So now the bad dude has taking over John Locke's body. Now in psychology John Lock was a famous empiricist, which means he though learning came through experience. He believed we were born with a blank slate and that we filled our minds as we learned. I find it completely ironic that the bad dude, who is against Jacob bringing people to the island to "learn from experience", has taken over John Locke a symbol of learning from experience. haha I am such a Psychology nerd.
