Best Present Ever!

Are you ready for the best present ever? So good, it needed its own separate post?.... And no, I'm not talking about the dollhouse again.... Instead, I have something even better....

Wait for it....

WE'RE PREGNANT AGAIN!!!!! (and the teeny circle is the yolk sac, not a second baby; the pinto bean sized smudge is the baby) ;)

We found out on Thanksgiving and let me tell you, this has been the longest four weeks EVER! It's the longest we've ever waited to tell (although we did tell a select few people early), but still! We knew it would make the perfect Christmas gift for our families and I'm so proud of us for making it all the way until Christmas!

To tell them, we skyped with Justin's family and Justin asked them "You got our Christmas card right? Well.... it's already out of date..." They were quick to catch on and were so excited for us. My mom (who is too attentive sometimes) figured it out on her own a couple weeks early, but promised to keep it a secret from my dad. We gave him a card that said something like "A new little lamb to love, congrats on the newest little addition to your family" and put an ultrasound picture inside. His reaction was priceless. He immediately started crying and lunged over to give me a huge hug. It was pretty awesome.

So there you go! I'm due July 28th which makes me 9 weeks right now. So far the last couple weeks I've been sicker than I ever have before (probably sicker than with all other pregnancies combined). It at least gives me some confidence that all is well in there and we'll get to bring this little baby home!

Very exciting! You guys deserve this. And maybe being sick is a good thing in your case right? Hope you feel better soon and hope your pregnancy is healthy and uncomplicated!
