Just another day in paradise…

Here Comes…


Baby number 3!

week 18 stripe

This is the exciting news that we received on May 10th. It came following a looong couple of weeks of sick kiddos, low blood sugars, and a hospital stay. It came right before we were heading out of town to visit our family in Tucson. We were so surprised and excited! A quick blood test on the 11th confirmed the news, and we decided to share it with our family and closest friends in person.

This week I had my first appointment and ultrasound. The baby has a strong heartbeat and is looking perfect! Here is a picture of the first ultrasound taken on my phone.

See that little blob in the center? Yup, that’s the baby. Hard to tell anything at this point. I am not as far along as I thought I was but when I got home and looked at my calender it looks as though their measurements match up exactly with my observations.

So…our official due date is January 18th. Looks like we will be welcoming a new life along with the new year.

I am a "domestic engineer" who enjoys dabbling in a variety of different artistic endeavors. I am blessed to be the wife of a wonderful man, and the mother of three handsome young men. These four men are the light of my life. Our life has a different set of challenges from many people, as we live the life of a military family, supporting my husband as he serves in the Air Force. The older boys are also Irish Twins, and are almost exactly 9 months apart. S was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2011, which has brought its own challenges. T was diagnosed with hypoglycemia in September 2012. We live a hard life but one we wouldn't trade for the world. This blog is a place for me to share our life stories, my creative experiments, links to various things that I discover online, and any random thoughts that I may have. Thanks for checking it out!
