Yes, it's official, I'm pregnant!

I had my first Dr. appointment 2 weeks ago to see how the baby was doing. I was scared out of my mind that I would lose this baby too and couldn't wait any longer to check. My Dr. was so sweet, the second she saw the baby, she was clapping, hitting my legs in excitment and so happy for me. I just laid there wiping the tears away, so thankful that this little one "looked perfect", I could finally be happy. I could finally allow myself to feel joy- I had just been too scared and so nervous to even hope for this baby, but now, I feel better and just pray everything continues to go well.
I wasn't going to post anything until the first trimester was over, just in case something happened, but then I thought about everyone who reads my blog, pretty much already knows that I'm pregnant anyway, so I figured this would be a great way to say I'm sorry for all the unreturned phone calls, the 6 weeks of church I've already missed and my lack of everything right now- just bare with me. I'm 10 weeks and secretly hoping for another girl. I must admit, I would like Tristin to have a brother though, so we'll see!
The moments I'm not up taking care of the kids, cooking, cleaning,running VERY few errands and working 2 days a week, I'm literally in bed every other second or hanging over the toilet. I've been miserable, but I'm so thankful, so I'm trying not to complain too much. We are blessed to be able to get pregnant, we are blessed to have 3 children, and hopefully, # 4 will get here safely! I go back to the Dr. in a few weeks, so I'll post any changes (except for the growing chest and expanding thighs! Those details I'll keep private!)

Playing dress up...

The girls looked so cute playing dress up awhile ago, I had to get a picture. They were thrilled that Addie was coming to play this morning while Tammy went to the Dr. to find out what she was having (a BOY!) They have had so much fun!

A few hours later...

Any one who knows me, knows that my computer skills are VERY limited, so you can imagine how I've been envying everyone's super cute blog backgrounds for the past year 1/2! Well, yesterday I sat down for a few hours and figured it out all by myself! So, although not perfect, at least we can stare at something new together!

Uncle Caleb comes for a visit!!

I called my brother Caleb last Wednesday, just to say Hi and see how he was doing. As we were talking he said he wanted to come out for a visit, so I told him anytime! Well, I picked him up the next day at the airport and he stayed with us for 3 nights! We had a great time eating out, shopping a little, playing at Chuck E Cheese, relaxing & playing with the kids. Sadly, this is the only picture I have (I know, I'm horrible, but I left my camera at chuck E cheese, darn it!) Thank you Uncle Caleb for flying out, we love you so much and we had a great time!
