{We are adding....}

 ...two more little feet to our family this Spring!
Carson, Ry, Addy....and ??

Yep...we're having baby #4!

The Details:

14 and a half weeks.
Due Date: May 7, 2011

I've been grateful:
  • For a husband who has picked up the slack at home while I am in misery.  Laundry, dishes, dinner, bedtime routine with kids, homework. I have truly been out of commission since a few days after the positive pregnancy test, and he has really come through and must be so ready to have me 'back in the game'.  Me too. Can't thank him enough for his patience, sympathy, and encouragement.
  • For a mom and a mother-in-law who have come to my rescue by cleaning, cooking, and helping with the kids.
  • For the new medication 'Zofran' that has prevented me from having a big weight loss in the first trimester.  Only down 5 pounds as compared to 10 with Rylan at the same point.
  • For friends and family who check in on me and encourage me.
  • For a doctor who got me in right away to rule out another ectopic pregnancy.
  • For 2 ultrasounds showing our little bean all in the right place!
  • For a due date in the Spring (a big change for me!)
  • For two kids who are elated, ecstatic, and full of questions about the little one growing inside.
  • For feeling a tad better this last week...and hopeful to be rid of this yucky, sicky stage by week 16.
  • For the amazing blessing of being able to carry baby #4 and add a little one to our home.

I feel like I have been hiding this little baby pretty well.  Here is a picture before church yesterday.  Definitely a baby bump there! Trev said it is hard to see...but hey, I did my hair, make-up, AND got in a I am going with this shot.  Although, at night in my yoga pants it is MUCH more obvious!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
