I am so excited to officially announce baby #5 is on the way! It has been a hard secret to keep but we wanted to wait until we had the utrasound. Well, we went last Friday and we saw a a heartbeat! The heart rate was 150 and baby measured right on target at 7 weeks 1 day. I was so nervous that morning, I was sick to my stomach. When I saw that tiny heart beating, I just started crying. I was so relived! Liam and Noah were with us and Liam thought it was so neat to see the baby. When the boys got home from school, we showed them the pictures and told Landon( we had told Connor a few days before). He was excited and immediately said, "I hope it's a girl baby!". We explained that that was up to God and we would be happy with whatever God gave us. He said he's going to pray and ask for it to be a girl. It's hard for me to imagine having a girl although it would be great. I don't think I would believe it even if they could tell on ultrasound. Not until I was holding the baby and could see for myself! I am just excited to be adding to our family! It's been a rough couple of weeks though. I have been non stop nauseous. Our poor house is a wreck. I just keep telling myself it will get better and as yucky as I feel, I'm okay because I know the baby is okay!
