We're Happy to Announce...

...that Baby #3 is on his/her way!

I am 13 weeks along....due somewhere between December 31st and January 5th. So, maybe we'll have a Christmas baby, or a New Year's matter what, it is going to be COLD! After having 2 babies born in the heat of August, I'll have to pack that hospital bag a little differently than I have had to in the past. Kris is secretly (okay, not so secretly!) hoping for this baby to arrive before the end of the year for tax and insurance purposes. =) We'll see!

So far everything has been going well, and the baby seems to be healthy. I have had a handful of doctor's appointments, and a few ultrasounds and the baby has been growing well and has a strong heartbeat. We feel very blessed to be adding another child to our family.

We just told Caleb the special news this morning after my recent doctor's appointment, and he seems really excited. I would imagine that this whole pregnancy thing is a bit hard for a 2 1/2 year old to grasp. While he knows that there is a baby in my tummy, he doesn't understand why he can't just see the baby! I told him that he could talk to the baby, and gently pat my tummy, so he has been doing a decent amount of that today. =) When we asked Caleb if he wanted another baby sister, or a baby brother, he said that he wanted another baby sister just like sweet is that?

In honor of making our news more public, we put special shirts on the kids today!

An attempt at a picture of the 2 of them together...hmmm, what's it going to be like to add a 3rd into the mix here? =)

And, our first belly shot this time around...
13 weeks

Here's a brief description of what is happening with the little one, thanks to

Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (the size of a medium shrimp) and weighs nearly an ounce.

It is so so amazing to know how intricately created this little baby is. Reading these updates, hearing a heartbeat, and seeing a little baby on an ultrasound never seizes to astound me.

God is Awesome.
