The truth...

posted on: Tuesday, July 17, 2012

 Well... remember how I was kind of scarce on the blog the past month?
And I blamed vacation and being busy.

There's more to the story...
The truth was in between all the fun you could find me 
 laying on the couch dead tired and sick to my stomach :)

We are so excited to announce that Baby #4 will be joining our family the beginning of February!

No..it was not a surprise :)
We have always wanted a larger family and four seems like a nice round number!
I had my first dr.'s appointment this morning.
A little later than usual... I'll be 11 weeks in two days.
The fun part about being further along and having my first appointment is that 
the baby looked like a baby and not just a little blob on the sonogram. :)
We were able to see the sweet babe moving around and everything looks good and healthy!
Seeing your precious little one on the sonogram screen for the first time never gets old.
We are so incredibly thankful that everything looked great!
The Lord is good!

So there you have it.
The full truth of where I've been :)

Hope your Tuesday was great!!!
