Family of Four! :)

I couldn't wait anymore. I wanted to tell all my friends and family that we are EXPECTING. I went to the Dr. last week and everything is going good. The only thing is that I wasn't as far along as I thought. I thought the babies due date would be the 10th of December, but after the ultra sound at the DR. he informed me that I was due December 21 so that put me back a whole 2 weeks. We are excited, I have been sick in the mornings when I first wake up but then I have some toast and I am fine till about 3:00 in the afternoon. then I am so sick.
We have told Kenidee, but she is so little she really does not understand. in fact we were driving in the car today and I asked her if she will help me with the baby when it comes and she said yes then I asked her a bunch of questions like; will you change the diapers? Uh huh, will you feed them a bottle? uh huh, will you share your Binky with the baby? she didn't even think about it and answered NO! So I guess that is where she stands on that.
We just hope we can get our house built and moved in before the little one comes.

Yeah!!!! I'm so excited for you guys and for the new little one to come!! Christmas baby! Just don't wrap it's presents in Christmas paper or put them under the tree ok :) My mom found out the hard way :) Do you want to know what I did for nausea? Tried to eat protein (cheese, beans, nuts)BEFORE I got hungry to keep my sugar level and took a little nap every day. Oh, and lots of water. I read a little article that gave these tips and said that said if you let yourself get nauseous, it's too late cause then you can't eat and then you get more sick. Oh, and dairy products seem to make a lot of women nauseous, like ice cream and yogurt and milk. But, you'll find out what helps you. One time a hot dog did it for me :) I hope your preganacy is great and the nausea stops soon.
How far apart will your kiddos be?

Congrats! That is soooo exciting! Luke was born December 29th and I am going to celebrate a half birthday with him. Since it is so close to Christmas I want him to another special day. Also June 29th is the day my daughter was born and so we can also take something to her grave that day. Just make it a special day. Anyways I can't wait to see you grow and see ultrasounds.

HOORAY!! How exciting for you guys! What a wonderful time of life--new house, new baby...lots to look forward to!

CONGRATS!!! I am so excited for you. For my nausea, it was saltine crackers and dry cereal. Infact, for the first couple of months, that was almost all I ate, and nothing fried. Fried foods would make it worse for me.
I am so happy for you!
How is the house coming?

I KNEW IT!!! Something you said in a comment to me tipped me off! I am so excited for you! I've heard the ginger thing works great... I just ate cereal bars. Feel better soon!

Caroline's birthday is Dec 5th, so I put crepe paper and balloons on the Christmas tree to make it special just for her day!
