A New Years Surprise.....

A new blog look......I thought the New Year needed to start off right.











Ok that's not the whole SURPRISE.....THIS IS...

It's still early yet but.......

baby

SURPRISE.

Little bean is 9 weeks today. It's been super hard keeping this secret for as long as I did.
And the fact that it's #6 makes little bean pop out my belly a little faster than before. So hiding is starting to be an issue.

I went in last week to double check that all those little "Pregnant" sticks were really true, and lo and behold they were.

I tell you no matter how many babies I see on a sono each one makes me giggle with delight at such a tiny miracle.

Pregnancy is a gift that I don't take for granted.....(esp after losing the baby before Reid) I was a little more nervous when I was carrying him....I kept thinking all the 'what if's' ...this time around I have decided to sit back and enjoy what I've been given. It's in God's hands....(Easy to type harder to let go though)

Speaking of God....I am guessing He has a sense of humor when it comes to me.....Lily and Reid both don't sleep through the night. Lily wakes a few times seeking a warm body. Then when she does she will twirl my hair until I swear it's going to break off at the scalp...(how she puts herself to sleep) Reid....? Well when he teethes the whole world knows. I can't seem to catch a break. His nose runs and he gets a cough...which makes him miserable. Takes forever to get the nose and cough to go away....only to start it all over again with another tooth. Which really throws his schedule off. He will have one really good week and then BOOM a new tooth...and there we are for another 3 weeks off sleeping. I keep praying babe 6 pops out happy and sleeping through the night. (a girl can dream)

Wondering the reaction of the big kids? We got that "look" again.....Extra asked where on earth the baby was going to sleep since we are out of rooms. Then of course they all look at each other and shout they are not sharing with anyone. Aww gotta love sibling love. That was it....no 'ohhh yea how cool'

So there you have the secret.....I am horrible at keeping them....especially when it's an exciting one!

My next midwife appt is in a few weeks....I think when I hear that little heartbeat again and make it past the 1st tri hurdle we can let our hair down officially and party like it's 1999....

Hope you stick with me on my journey of a middle aged mom who's a hot mess pregnant with #6. I don't have all the answers....I just pretend to my kids I do.
