Spring arrival

In the last few weeks I've nursed a few of these jars...



Spent my free time here...



... and taken lots of naps. But it's all worth it because tucked away inside of me is a little baby. A baby!

Yesterday, the four of us crowded into the doctor's office for the ultrasound. We saw a perfect little baby with little arms and legs. We even got a few wiggles out of him/her! It was fascinating especially since a couple of weeks ago all we could make out was the beautiful flashing of the heartbeat. The boys are so excited and ask us all the time when the baby is coming out. It will be a long winter for them I'm sure. Little baby should be here around April 5th.

The sickness has been worse this pregnancy then the ones before. I'm counting down the weeks until the first trimester is over and hopefully I'll start feeling better. Jeremy has been amazing. He's picked up the slack, making sure we're all taken care of and spending lots of extra time with Ian and Sawyer. The boys are understanding and know when mama needs to rest on the couch and they let me, without any complaints.

It's amazing how seeing the little baby can lift my spirit and help me look past the nausea. It never ceases to amaze me how miraculous this entire process is and it humbles me that I get to experience it again. And that by next spring, I'll be holding another little baby of ours. We love you already little one.

Little baby at 9 weeks:

Wait - You're PREGNANT?!?! I just thought you had the flu. (Kidding)

I am so excited for our new little bug to join his/her two brothers in our ever-extending family.

We are definitely blessed to be gifted with our kids, Andrea.

Who knows, you may be able to use one of my name suggestions after all. Congratulations to the whole family. The boys will make excellent big brothers and I know your parenting skills are just waiting to be used a little more. We are very excited to have one more grandchild on the way. Thank you.

Won't it be fun to see what he/she looks like...Ian or Sawyer or something completely new...? So happy for you guys--so happy we get to know this new little life.
