In case you missed the news...

We're expecting baby #3!  I'm sure most everyone knows via facebook or me mentioning it, but just in case.  We're very excited and feeling very blessed.  I've been ridiculously sick...sicker than I ever thought possible.  I'm trying to remember it's what I wanted but I either forgot how hard this was or it just wasn't as hard all the previous times.  I keep telling Keith this is the last but he isn't on board yet.  I'm really not sure I can do this again!  I think if I were supposed to have lots of babies this would/should be easier!  I mean, I can handle the huge babies, it's just this DANG nausea and throwing up all day long.  We're going on 13 weeks so hopefully with it being the end of the 1st trimester things will lighten up.  Definitely crossing my fingers for that one!  We should also find out in about 3 weeks what we are having!  I love love love that my doctor does a 16 week gender check if you want it!  I thought it would be so cool to be surprised and not know the last 2 pregnancies, but Keith hasn't been for not finding out.  Of course this time he said we could not find out but I said too bad so sad!  I've waited a really long time for this baby and have been so sick I feel like I need a little something to help me out here :)  Of course a girl would be fun but I'm just happy to be having a healthy baby that stuck around this time.  And we definitely make awesome boys so I fail to see how that wouldn't be great as well.  Some people seem to be a little bit obsessed with the fact that it needs to be pink this time around, but I really really really am just so happy to be having this baby.  I guess that should mean it wouldn't be too hard to not find out, but finding out at 16 weeks is still a surprise :)

When we told the boys they were obviously thrilled.  Max was excited but I don't think really gets it.  Gavin was so excited he was literally jumping up and down screaming "We're having a baby!"  Then all of the sudden he just stopped and started crying he was so excited!  It was probably the sweetest moment ever!  It's fun having someone who understands what is going on.  He asks every week how big the baby is (he loves that they compare the size of the baby to food!) and they both always want to tell the baby things.  When we were camping over Easter he said, "Baby, if you're a boy, I love you you're handsome.  If you're a girl, I love you you're pretty."  He's so funny!  They both say they want a sister but I've prepared them that it could go either way.  I'm excited to take them with us to the ultrasound. 

So there you have it!
