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!
