( No Longer Cautiously) Thrilled To Announce!!!!

We are very excited to officially announce that we're expecting again! As of this writing we're 9 weeks and 5 days along giving us an EDD of Halloween! How fun is that?
Lilypie Maternity tickers
I say cautiously because as you know if you read our blog, we just miscarried in November. My excitement is building to full fledged giddy-ness now but initially I just couldn't allow myself to celebrate. Now, don't get me wrong. I was VERY happy to be pregnant. Just nervous.
But with that fear behind me, I am now super excited and happy to tell anyone who may (or may not, hehe) be interested!
Here is one of the us pics from our 1st appt last week:
Legs are on the left, body and arms in the center and precious little head on the right.
For a moment during the us there seemed to be 2 little treasures in there but I was assured that second figure was simply the placenta. We'll see won't we?
Our next appointment is May 14th and our next ultrasound (including finding out who's in there) will be June 16th! Yay!

30 Day Husband Encouragement Challenge

So I've decided to do this challenge because lets be real, I'm not always nice. My husband works soo hard to support our family and I am not always as supportive as I should be. So here's the deal:

Every day for 30 Days:
* You must say something positive or admirable about your husband, to your husband and at least one other person.
* You cannot say anything negative or critical about your husband to your husband or anyone else.

And hopefully this becomes a habit!

To sign up for the Challenge yourself go here:

Day 1: After being gone for 3 days and hardly sleeping, my husband was totally bummed out that I asked my mom to have the boys spend the night so that he could sleep peacefully and late. Because he missed them so much. That melted my heart. So, I canceled to sleepover.

Day 2: Matthew is so smart with money and he makes it easy to keep our finances in order. This is not my strong suit and I so admire that it comes so easy to him. I never have to worry about bills getting paid or having enough for groceries or gas because he is so good at budgeting. What a blessing!
