Baby Boom

A new adventure is beginning for us!  In the not too distant future, we will be adding to our family. 

A few weeks ago, my body began behaving strangely.  I noticed odd little things that usually only happen when I'm pregnant, such as heartburn.  I was very suspicious. 

Finally, last week, we aquired the infamous pregnancy tester to find out if I was right.  Aaron got a fancy digital one, apparently putting more trust in a more expensive tester.  As a result, instead of a mere plus sign, we got to see an actual "YES" in the results box.  How fun! 

I am now about six weeks along, which means, according to a baby website I have been looking at, that the baby is about the size of a lentil bean right now.  Last week it said the baby was only the size of a sesame seed, so that's a considerable amount of growth for one week, if you think about it. 

The same website also calculated that I will be due May4, but since my children seem to enjoy showing up fashionably late, it will probably be closer to May 14. 

We are all hoping for a girl this time.  Malachi refers to the baby as "baby sister".  I don't think it would be too bad to have another boy though; we already have three, after all--what's one more?  And boys are a lot of fun.  They get into a lot of trouble, but they're a lot of fun.

So that is our exciting news, which most of you who read my blog already knew about, but I felt that I ought to write something "official" about it:)

Here's to number four!
