Our growing family...

Yes, this time, it is what you think. No, we didn't get another dog. Three is enough for us for now. But, yes, our little family is growing.

We are having a baby!!!!!!!!

We are SO excited!!! We found out a few weeks ago, and couldn't be more thrilled!

We hadn't told anyone, but had been trying to get pregnant while we were in South Carolina, for about a year. Once we found out that we were going to be getting orders, we quit trying due to the upcoming move. Not to mention, I wouldn't have a job here yet. And, here we are now, with a baby on the way! It just goes to show, it's not on our time. God has an ultimate plan for our lives, and it will be in His time, not ours.

I will try to answer some of the questions that I have gotten recently... I am about 8 1/2 weeks along, so the due date as of right now is Feb. 4, 2010. Sounds like a long time away, doesn't it?

Yes, we want to find out the sex of the baby. I am WAY too much of a planner to not find out. Unfortunately, it won't be until mid September when we can do the ultrasound to find out.

I am feeling pretty well right now. It was a little rough for a few weeks, but I hope that I am on the downside of the sickness. I have been told that it usually only lasts through the first trimester, which should only be about another 3 weeks. I am holding on to that! :-)

We have a few names picked out, but haven't settled on anything for sure yet.

John is being such a wonderful husband and being so supportive through this whole thing! I am not sure that it has really hit either one of us yet, but he is being great! I feel like I am being so lazy because I am so tired all the time, but he keeps assuring me that I need to rest and take care of myself. He is helping me so much and I can not even put into words how lucky I am to have such a great husband!

So, that's it! That's our great news! I will keep you updated as we make our way through this amazing process! We would appreciate your prayers for a healthy baby!

Lots of love!
