Doctor visit #1

Today we went to see Nancy Spencer for our first appointment. I love that she is family oriented. Alexis sat on the bed while she did a quick ultrasound to peek at the baby. It was hard for Alexis to understand since the baby is so small. I am 7 weeks 3 days and due June 14, 2010. She is sending me for another ultrasound on Friday so they can take a closer look and really pin point a due date since this was so un-expected and I wasn't really paying attention to my cycles. Britt mentioned that he thinks it is multiples, she could only see one baby but said that the other ultrasound will show everything. I think there is only one though. I asked why my pants are tight already and she said that it is Britt I am not over eating and just getting fat, lol. She drew blood and the family veins proved themselves worthy and wouldn't give up blood. She finally got her 2 vials on the 3rd try. My arm is killing me and I can't pick things up or bend it. I am sure I will have a giant bruise. I don't have another appointment until right before Thanksgiving. I will scan the picture in here for all to see our little pea!
It is in a zip lock bag because Alexis keeps looking at it. I think I will put it in a plastic frame or something to protect it and so that she can look at it. That is what all the waves are in the picture.

Pumpkin patch and more!

A few photos to catch up!

On one of the last nice days of the year I was watching the Schaub's. Alexis and Evana decided to make root beer mud nice clothes. I chose to use my nice mommy and told them that they would just have to play in the sprinkler. Really doesn't every kid make root beer mud pies? So I put the splash mat on and they decided their clothes need to come off. Then they washed them, beating them and flipping them around. They did a pretty good job. So I snapped a few pictures. They went in the garden and tried to find any strawberries that might still be growing. They had fun.(do you like the well placed plants? No naked bum shots.)

We met our new niece/cousin Madison on Saturday. Madison is Kevin's daughter that we just found out about. She is almost 2 and very tall. The kids played, made carmel apples and ate mini hamburgers. We then went to the pumpkin patch. Maris farms is always fun and not as muddy as others due to grass and gravel walks. We did the corn maze, jumped, went down the slide a bunch, well not me, the hay ride and looked at pumpkins. Sadly Britt wasn't able to join us because he was in Spokane. They had tons of fun and we even rewarded with a funnel cake!

Is it really that hard to smile?

Grandpa and his four grandkids...#5 is on its way!

Alexis and the cat have a love hate they are at their best.

A little bit of news

The low down on us is that we are going to have a is the craziest thing to every happen to us. Even more crazy then when where asked if we wanted Alexis to be our little girl. We have prayed and prayed for this and trusted that it would happen when it was time. We really honestly thought that we would need doctor intervention to get here. I guess in a way we did with Britt having surgery in January. He was told 3-4 months and then things should be working good. Well 5 months later we know that things are working! It is truly a miracle.

So when we told Alexis today that a baby is on the way. We told her it was in mommy's tummy and was growing, but it will take awhile. She told us that she has a baby in her tummy too. She wanted to see the baby and then "snuggled" my tummy (those where her words). It is very sweet. We are over the moon seeing as how our 10 year anniversary is November 20th. Why did it take nearly 10 years, only the Lord knows but we are so grateful. We are better people for having a 10 year wait imposed upon us. Better parents and appreciate this opportunity more then we would have had we not had to struggle. I am 5 weeks 2 days and will be impatiently waiting until June 14th or around there to see our little baby. Alexis is a big sister to be, finally! She will be almost 4 and will be such a huge helper and probably drive us crazy with wanting to hold her new baby brother or sister. Britt thinks we are having twins and Alexis goes along with it like it is normal. I however think(and hope)that it is only 1.
