Is this really working?

Wow! I just discovered that in addition to deleting my last 20 downloaded apps , the most recent apple update allows me to to blog from my iPad directly from the blogger website without any e-mail work arounds. Maybe I will do better at blogging more frequently now. Maybe.

Today we went with Sam's preschool class to a farm. They had lots of different activities to do, some Sam loved- the train ride and the peddle cars and the swings, and some Sam hated- the bounce house and all of the animals. Except for ducks and the baby chickens. Those were okay to him. Hopefully his aunts got some cute pictures that I can post later.

While it was a fun adventure it left me feeling too hot and extremely tired. Basically the same way I feel anytime I have to venture outside so far this pregnancy. Really... I am always tired no matter what I do. Thankfully I am not too sick yet- as long as I put food in my belly every 2-3 hours. Sam finally seems to be accepting that we are going to have a new baby that is not him. He tells me where the baby is, and that the baby's name is pumpkin. All of the kids are really excited, but they don't seem to quite get how long it will take. I have told them how tiny the baby still is- but I am still getting asked if the baby is kicking yet and if they can feel my belly. Hannah is thinking a little bit more long term and asking if she will be old enough to change this babies diapers. We told her no when Sam was born- but I think a 9 year old will be much better at it than a 5 year old. It will be a whole different experience this time around having big kids that can help effectively instead of having practically all babies in the house.

Picture Day!

Today was picture day at school.  We didn’t order any, so we decided to take some at home.  Let me know what you think!

(yes- that says bigger, I am horrible at getting all four kids in one picture)

And 2 eyes, 2 ears, 1 nose and 1 mouth bigger.  You get the idea… right?

 

We are having another baby!   The kids are very excited.  We are only 4 weeks along. I know that lots of people wait till they are out of the miscarriage  “danger zone” to tell everyone,  but we are really happy so we wanted to let everyone else be happy with us.  And worse case scenario, you can mourn with us.  Best case scenario- you will be a little more understanding of me not having it all together right now.
