Surprise!!!

Here is our 2010 Family Christmas Picture:

Notice the 5 stockings behind us? Yay!!! We have an extra reason to celebrate this Christmas!!! :) Baby #3 is on the way, due to arrive sometime in the middle of July 2011! My preliminary due date is July 8, but with both other pregnancies, my date has been moved later after the ultrasound results, so I wouldn't be surprised if that's the case again. :) Actually, I would LOVE to have my date moved later, and to have the baby late, because our baby is due right smack dab in the middle of the summer camp season - which means my husband works almost every minute he's not sleeping!! So having a newborn during this busy time of year will be just a tiny bit CRAZY!!! :) God is reminding me over and over that He will give me strength for all that He has called me to, though, and I am so thankful for that! :)

Here is the very first picture of our sweet little blessing: He/she is about 9 weeks along - this picture was taken yesterday, December 16th! :)

This baby has been making me more sick than Natalie did, maybe about as sick or even sicker than Zachary made me...so I'm wondering if it's a boy??? But we will be happy with a girl or a boy, we have no preference at all. :) So far, I've just been really tired, and nauseous most mornings and sometimes evenings and if I don't eat often enough or sometimes if I eat too much and also when my allergies are bad...etc. So, yeah, I guess I've been nauseous a lot. But today was a really GOOD day, and I got stuff done and even managed not to take a nap! :) It is just so fun to finally be able to TELL people about our baby!!! :)

Congrats, Carrie! I'll pray God gives you strength as you care for 2 while you're pregnant. Can't wait to hear if it's a boy or girl! :)
