Spillin' the Beans...

So...many of you have heard, but some have not that we are PREGGERS!!! I've avoided telling the world via the internet until officially out of my first trimester, just in case. We had an early ultrasound at about 7 weeks and were able to see a very strong heartbeat and today heard it for the first time! About 168 beats a minute...Hmmm...what might that mean?? According to the doctor the heartbeat is a correct indication of the sex of the baby about half of the time... :)

We are beyond excited about this new addition to our family on or around June 3rd. I think even Hailey is excited...when asked if she wants a brother or a sister she says she wants a monkey (thanks, Dad) but I think she'll be fine either way.

Well, that's our exciting news! Now I've just got to wait until the first week of January to find out what it is... :)

YAY! More babies! We can have some FW playpals. Our little guy's heartrate was higher - like 170s at 10 weeks and has been at or above 150 the whole time - which usually above 150 means girl. So anything is possible!!

WHOOO! WHOOO! WHOOO! (picture Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman pumping her fists in the air and rasply WHOOPING).

2. 2 is....squared. frustration squared. satisfacton squared. love squared. work squared. joy squared.

Enjoy the drama story that Jesus gives us to live with these little people in our lives.

congratulations!

Congratulations Jess!!! That is terrific news! And who knows, maybe you'll get a baby and a monkey all in one, sometimes it seems like my kids are half monkey!
I'm so excited for you and glad things are going well!
