Exciting news! :-)

We have some exciting news to share- our second baby should be arriving in late September! :-)
I am only about 6 weeks along (as the doctors date pregnancies) or 3 1/2 weeks ( the age of the baby). I had an ultrasound today to get a due date and it was very special to see our tiny baby's heartbeat for the first time. :-) The baby resembles a kidney bean more than anything at this point. Haha But they develop so quickly from this time on! We have a book with very good photos of babies at every stage of the pregnancy, so it's fun to keep track of what's going on that way.

I have been feeling sick for about 1 1/2 weeks now, so that hasn't been too pleasant. Let's just hope it doesn't get too much worse! I've had to be very careful not to let my blood sugar drop between meals, so I've been trying to eat little healthyish snacks between. :-) I am thankful that so far I haven't been nearly as sick as my mom and her sister were during their pregnancies. I just try to bear that in mind to encourage myself. Haha

Anyway, we are very excited to have another precious little baby in our family. I am hoping for a girl this time, but will be happy with either, of course. :-)
Nathanael doesn't really understand what's going on yet, but I'm sure he will get excited closer to the time. He turns 3 in late August, so I think that should be a nice age gap.

Please forgive me if I don't blog as often, as I am very tired, etc. and am having a hard time getting the basics done around the house. Things should return to normal by the 3 month mark I am hoping. :-)
