I had my first doctor visit this morning and here is the first ultrasound. There's only 1!!! Ain't he/she cute?! It's kind of hard to tell, but the baby was just hangin' out upside down. Doc says everything looks really good and then I had oh, about a gallon of blood sucked from me for tests. Nice. I'm 11 weeks along with my due date being around the middle of August. I can't wait to find out the sex so I can start shopping!!!
The girls are psyched for a new brother or sister. Emily is always talking to my belly saying, "I love you baby". Although they are both adamant about naming the baby "spongebob". Uh-huh.
Hope everyone is staying warm. We're in the middle of a blizzard here. Life in Ohio....gotta love it.

I'm a little behind the times here, but I thought I'd post some pictures of our Christmas.
We had my family over for Christmas Eve and I decided to curl the girls' hair. It looked cute for about an hour, then just completely fell.Christmas Morning...
For some reason, the thing Ashley wanted most for Christmas was this ATM Machine.
Christmas Day at Grandma & Grandpa Knapp's...I didn't take as many pictures this year because...ahem...I wasn't feeling very well. Wonder why that was...?!
I just want to thank everyone who left comments and emails congratulating me. The morning sickness is not as bad and I'm starting to feel normal (relatively speaking, of course) again.
I'll be back with some kits soon...check back!

Holy Crap!!! I just found out on New Year's Eve that I'm going to be a mommy again. I was completely shocked and a little freaked out! I had to take two tests just to be sure.
I've been feeling extremely tired and queasey for the past week and figured I was coming down with the flu. Ha! Around 9:30ish on New Year's Eve I was checking my email when I started feeling really sick to my stomach. I grabbed a pillow and blanket and set up camp on the couch. When my husband came downstairs I said, "Honey, I think I'm coming down with the flu or something." He asked, "You're not pregnant, are you?" I said, "Naw, I don't think so." But he needed to know for sure, so he ran to the store for a test. Lo and behold...... I was stunned. The first thing that came to mind is "I'm 40 and going to have a baby". That is what freaked me out the most. Now, after a couple of days of it sinking in, I'm thrilled! Another baby!! Maybe we'll get a little boy this time. And please God, let there be just one this time. God has a wicked sense of humor, so we'll just have to wait and see what he's got in store for us! Healthy is really all I ask for.
This pregnancy is definitely going to be different from the last. I'm so queasey and just want to sleep. Last time, nothin'! I kept taking tests to see if I was still pregnant because I didn't feel any different. BIG change this time! Saltine crackers have been my saving grace. God Bless Nabisco. Today is actually the first day in about a week and a half where I've felt half-way human. It's going to be interesting.
So, needless to say, I probably won't be posting a whole lot in the coming months, but I'm sure I'll pop in from time to time to give you all an update.
