We are pregnant! I have taken three tests now, and all of them have come up positive. (the top test is from a week ago, hence, slight discoloration)
We are absolutely thrilled. I am convinced its a boy and Chad thinks its a girl, but I am 99% positive we will be finding out the sex, so we will know who’s right in about 4 months.
I am only about 6 weeks along, so if you think about it, please keep us in your prayers that we may have a ‘to term’ pregnancy. I am confident in the Lords plan and totally thrilled he has given us this miracle!
I have an appointment with a nutritionist on May 2nd to start an all natural diet. Actually, I think my whole family is going to be doing that. The boys already get great supplements and good foods, but Chad and I still enjoy a good Mystery Roll and the occasional Dump Cake. And that just will not do!
And I am already on a pre-natal vitamin (have been for 4 years) and am taking fish oil supplements. And with Spring approaching, I may even get bunches of exercise! And hopefully get to meet up with Linnea and MOPS gals and Janis for some great playdates as well!
We had lunch with my folks today and gave them the big news. My mom said, "I knew it!" lol I think all moms say that right? 😉
My dad and Parker having a good laugh.
The first thing I thought when I saw this picture was,
"That is what love looks like."
The kids were so sad to see Grandma and Grandpa go.
We got home, and about half hour later Chad’s folks arrived. Parker and Colton both got (much needed!) haircuts. We told them we were preggers and they seemed happy for us! It was good to be able to finally share the news with our loved ones.
Colton leaping into his fathers arms. Kids get to have so much fun. I can’t even remember the last time I did that.
And you know little boys love to wear their daddies (and in this case grandpas) hats.
Kinda grainy, I know. This one will not be going in the scrapbook (and technically, none of them will because I don’t have a scrapbook) but I thought it was cute enough to share with you.
It has been a BUSY day with lots of news and lots of hugs and kisses (mostly for the kids) and lots of smiling and laughing and cooking and eating. A well spent day if I don’t say so myself. Which I do. So I guess that I DO say so myself. OK. Just nod and smile. Nod and smile.
Blessings to you and yours-
