Picture Day!

Alex had her first Picture Day at school recently.  Does anyone else think it's funny for a 1 year old to have a school picture?  I'm picturing yearbooks, autographs and "Most Likely to Succeed" jokes coming soon.

Happy Happy News

We are kind of thrilled, excited, ecstatic and over-the-top happy to announce that we will be expanding our family in April, 2011! We have known for a few weeks, and it is really difficult for me to keep ANYTHING this cool a surprise.  Today we had our first ultrasound and saw the heartbeat, and everything is looking wonderful and healthy!

We knew we wanted to have our children close together (assuming it was what was meant to be?) so this is such a blessing for us and our family!  I am just hoping for as great of a pregnancy as last time and of course, we are hoping for a healthy baby!  I am feeling very sick and exhausted, but it's all part of the package I guess.  I sure do miss those early evening naps that I could take so easily during the last pregnancy though!  It definitely changes the game when you have a toddler to run around with. 

Speaking of that toddler, we asked her how she felt about us bringing her a baby brother or sister, and here was her reaction:

I think she's excited. 

Well, we are at least, and maybe it will be contagious?
