Life has definitly been a little more than crazy around here lately. Between 3 kids and keeping up with the normal everyday routine, and court issues (which are now finally resolved!), and cranky teething baby, and being sick with a terrible sinus infection, and going back and forth to Reno all the time, and Mike and I both keeping bust with our callings in Young Men's and Young Women's, I have fallen a bit behind on my blog. Well, no one should really be surprised because I am not the greatest at keeping up with it in the first place.
With all the crazy things going on, Heavenly Father must have felt like keeping up with that theme, because a few weeks ago we found out that we are expecting another baby WAY sooner than we ever had planned. I kept telling Mike that I wanted to wait to have another until Ammon was in kindergarten, but apparently the message got a little mixed up....it is Noah who is starting kindergarten this year. Needless to say we were both a little shocked. I thought I had been feeling cruddy because of the sinus infection I have been battling, but I was wrong. Thankfully I never got as sick this time as I did with all the others. (However that would have been a BIG tip off to me that it wasn't just a sinus infection)
We got to see my doctor this past friday, and had an ultrasound to figure out how far along we are. We had absolutely no idea what we were going to see on the ultrasound....what we did see was a baby, not a little blob with a flickering heartbeat, but a baby with a decernable head, and arms, and legs, and even tiny feet. We got to see the baby roll around and cross its legs. I was still trying to wrap my head around the idea, but seeing that little tiny baby moving around brought tears to my eyes...even though this wasn't planned on our time, it is still a blessing from our Heavenly Father. We are almost 13 weeks along and are due January 3rd. Although they may have to lock me away in the nut house with 4 kids around the ages of 6 and under, hopefully since Heavenly Father decided to bless us again so early, he will help give me the strength (and sanity) to survive! :)
