It's Official...

Ben is going to be a Big Brother!!!!  We have made it to 12 weeks and feel that we are safe to make the announcement.  Funny thing is this baby is due on Ben's Birthday (April 25), but thanks to a C-Section, they will not share the same day.
We have known since I was 3.5 weeks, but there were some discrepencies in what I should have been based on my last period and what the Ultrasound was showing.  It seems to have worked itself out, and here we are.
Thanks to all you patient people who have been guessing and begging me for more exciting news.
The next post I will be sharing how this pregnancy is TOTALLY different from the last one and how I am glad that this will be the last one (not because I do not love babies, but because apparently my body believes I am too old already).

Our House

The Little House on the Prairie

We have been planning on building for a long time now. In the last few months, it has become more apparent that we are closer than ever to having our house. We have been very fortunate to have a place to live, but we outgrew it sometime ago. We knew when this time came that it was not going to be as simple as buying a house, because we have land that we wanted to use. There is a lot that goes into building a house and after interviewing the builders, finalizing the plans and going to the bank, we are SOOOO EXCITED to get started.
