Our beautiful little bean!

The big day arrived! Finally!  The verdict is one beautiful little heartbeat fluttering away.  I'm not disappointed in the least.  I know that our lives and this little life will work out the way they are supposed to.  So look out world! Here he/she comes!
 (ps... What do you think? I have my suspicions but you can vote on the right side.)


The arrow is pointing right at the baby. It looks like two light colored blurbs and the large opening on the right of the baby is the heart chamber open... Pretty dang cool! I've never had such a clear ultrasound so early. Science is miraculous!

The garden and feeling annoyed...

I'm going to start with my venting and then move on to cuter things.

The last month or so has obviously been super crazy for us.  I feel very blessed thoug because I have great friends that have helped out with meals, or laundry, or just taking the kids so they aren't so bored.  

If you know me you know I'm a social person.  When I was working I discovered something... It was really nice to have friends outside of church. I love the gospel and I love the people in my ward but sometimes it's a lot of drama. So since returning home full time I've been reintroduced to said drama and it's really frustrating me. 

I'll be friends with pretty much anyone who wants to be my friend but I'm over the days when I was willing to put all the work into relationships.  You want to hang out? Give me a call... Dont just mope and be sad that no one calls you.  We are all busy grown up women.  It's ok to have friends you get especially along with.  No one should hate you for that.  It's not ok to be unkind in your exclusivity.  I hope I have never been that.   

Long story short... I love pretty much everyone... You want to be friends?  Come on over. 

Now on to cuter things.  Our garden is coming in.  A little bit anyway. :) and it is delicious.  Check out this cute thing eating up come jellybean tomatoes and cucumbers with salt.  I love having fresh fruits and veggies to snack on!  And she looks oh so good doing it!

Oh baby!

Four days past our embryo transfer I took a pee test... It was distinctly positive! We didn't tell people but I kept taking them and they kept getting darker... We got final confirmation Monday that yes...

WE'RE HAVING A BABY!

Im 5 weeks along at this point.  It feels super surreal... Once again we have an almost four year old and are going back to life with a newborn... Or two.  There is wisdom in having kids closer together.  You don't get used to the calmer diaper free days.  But bring it on!

I wasn't sick with either of my other kids and so far this is no different.  I am EXHAUSTED though.  Being pregnant at 29 is a lot different than it was at 20... And we are just starting.  I'm anxious to see my little bean/beans in a couple of weeks.  I just want to know what we are dealing with and see a heartbeat.  I am hoping that both took.  Not because I want twins (although it would be nice after all this) but because they are real to me.  Even though they were only a teeny tiny group of cells they felt like mine.  It would feel like a loss I think if only one made it.

So... We wait.  Again...  We'll keep ya posted!
