The real reason I've been slacking...



Yep that's right we are PREGNANT!!! :) Oh it is so nice to finally let the cat out of the bag!! I'm sure some of you either knew or figured it out by now. I've been waiting for this day for weeks. We are over the moon thrilled & can't wait to meet this little blessing!! I am due 8/29 which means it'll be a hot summer but well worth it! :) I was 12 weeks on Mon but couldn't see the doc until today. Everything looked perfect at the appt. Heart rate was 167...it was 178 at the 8 wk appt. I go back in 4 wks for my 16 wk appt & then in early April we find out what we are having! :)

Sonogram pics from today...


Look at that sweet hand coming up to the face...

We made the big announcement to the family on Christmas...we found out 2 days before so I didn't have a lot of time to plan anything. I did find this ornament on Christmas Eve which was the last one (the display actually).

I already had a T-shirt (don't have a pic & I'm not sneaking into C's room tonight to get it :)) but it has a dog on the front & it reads "I have a secret..." & on the back it says "I'm going to be a big brother." Nothing fancy but I actually bought it when we were originally prego back at the end of the summer (July-Sept). Yep that's right, I had a miscarriage. Now I know some ppl would never speak of this especially if it has happened to them. I am one of those ppl though that believes things happen for a reason & it just wasn't meant to be & I'm completely ok with that. Sure it was devastating at first but I try to be as positive as possible & know that it is in God's hands & He has a plan, not me, as much as I want to try to control my life or do things the way I want. I never wrote on here about this even though I wanted to b/c I think it is only fair to show the good & the bad...life isn't perfect, no one's is. But I didn't want ppl to feel sorry for me or look at me differently/feel awkward around me so I didn't. Anyway, it's all over now & we are happy as can be! And the original reason I was telling you about the shirt is b/c on Christmas day after we ate & were going to open presents, I went & changed C into the shirt & waited to see how long it took for ppl to notice. That part was quite entertaining!

Oh & one more thing about the previous pregnancy...we came up with a fun way to tell the family...we sent them all a little package in the mail & when they opened it up they found 1 newborn diaper & a piece of paper that read....

"You May Be Experiencing Déjà vu
But Really, You Should Be Excited About Baby Flurry #2."

And it had this pic at the bottom.






Oh well, it was a fun idea. :) So that's that!! I'll be sure & keep you abreast to the updates, changes & any news of Baby Flurry #2!! :)
