Thank You...

...everyone for all of your well wishes. We are excited to be adding to our family. And no, Sharla, there will be no family of 6, at least by the end of this pregnancy. I can make no guarantees about later in life.    :)     For now, there's only 1 bun in the oven. We have already had the chance to see him/her (it's SO going to be a girl, by the way) and we saw the heart just flashing away. That was really great. The due date for this little one is July 1st. So by this summer Marty & I will officially be outnumbered by our children. Yep, that's right. You know the old saying, ..."strength in numbers." We may be in trouble. I am still feeling quite ill and can I just say warning: TMI coming right at you it's not super fun to be wiping your 3 year old's diarrhea soaked bottom 12 times a day and 6 times in the middle of the night while feeling like you're going to puke. The smell of strong perfume about kills me, so you can imagine what her scent does! So I am trying to remember that feeling this way is a good sign. I have to remind myself of that 37 times a day. In the meantime I have been sucking on lemon drops, eating saltine crackers by the pound and trying to sleep, sleep, sleep as much as possible. I am already counting down the days until the first trimester is over and hoping for a reprieve from all of this when that day comes. I will certainly keep you all updated on the progress of things as they go. Until next time...

I hate to laugh at misery, but that was so funny. We will keep Reagan in our prayers that her poopy will clear up. Hopefully that will make things a little easier on you also.

Always praying for you,

OH NO...REAGAN is sick again?? was she absent on Friday? I know Chloe has been sick also. There were quite a few absent in class Friday. Anyway, sorry you have to deal with that while being sick. I know how miserable the first trimester is!! Hang in there Momma!!

So sorry! Hope you start to feel better soon! We haven't had what Reagan's got, but Conn has Pneumonia. Tis the season, I guess!

Yup...I hear ya sister! If I could say that I understand once, I could say it a thousand times.

Actually to be precise, I was sick at least 20 weeks with all the girls. 23 weeks with Cam. That means I was sick (I mean shoving saltines and lying face front on the floor sick) for 60 WEEKS. Okay...let's make it sound worse. For ONE year and 8 weeks. Or 421 DAYS. That sounds worse...we'll go with that one. Goodness gracious. I hear YOU sister!!

What an absolute blessing for your sweet family. Even if you have to say it 37 times a day! :) Love ya and will be thinking of you as I brush my teeth without gagging.
