Exciting news!

So... well, there's something you should all know... if you don't already. I'm pregnant. Yep. It's true. Elisa's going to have a little brother or sister. Right now I am 9 1/2 weeks along. That means that this little baby is due to be born around October 3rd. Anyway... that's the exciting news. One of the most frequently asked questions has been, "was this planned?" I think people are kind of shocked that we're pregnant again already. But yes, it was "planned." Elisa will be 22 months old when her little sibling comes along. I feel pretty good about how close they will be in age. I am kind of hoping for a girl - so they can be fun little sister playmates. But of course I would be ecstatic about having a boy too. In fact, I kind of think that this is a boy.

I have been feeling... a little sick... but soooooooo much better than last time. I'll definitely be glad to get beyond this first stage of the pregnancy. But I am able to take care of Elisa and that's the important thing. The nauseau comes and goes (which is so much better than the constant nauseau that I had last time), I haven't thrown up at all, I have been able to eat, and I haven't been light-headed or fainted. So, there are things to be thankful for. But I would appreciate your prayers that I would feel well, and that this first stage of pregnancy that many refer to as "morning sickness" will pass quickly. Thank you!

Congratulations!!! I am so excited for you guys, and coming from someone who has kiddos that are close in age, it is great. Lizzie and Ellie are 17 months apart and they love playing together. Oh, and I never knew what I was having with any of our girls until the ultrasound. All 3 very different pregnancies and yet 3 girls, go figure. Keep us posted on the pregnancy.

Hooray! Casey's girls are exactly 2 years apart and already are good buddies. I'll hope for a girl, too!

That is so exciting! It's wierd, but just the other day, I was thinking of you guys and another little one running around...not knowing! So glad to hear that you aren't as sick this time. Makes a huge difference, I'm sure!
