Baby news!!!!!!!

Well, here's the big news that it seems a lot of people already know. Word gets around you know! :) We are 11 weeks pregnant...due March 26th. Yes, I know Sam is only 8.5 months old. Yes, I know that puts them only 15 months apart. Yes, I know that I am crazy! :) Isn't it great! The OB just said, "Well, you keep saying you want to have a big family!" Unfortunately, I am starting this pregnancy with all the weight still on from Sam. That's a bummer, but other than that, we are really excited. The ultrasound tech guessed its a girl and she said she hopes to do my 20 week ultrasound to find out if she is right. That was my assumption as well, this pregnancy seems similar to Natalie's. George just laughed when I said that to him. I am sure because I can't remember a thing from her pregnancy and babyhood. Poor kid!

The latest baby question posed from Levi is "Do you get to decide how many babies you want or does Heavenly Father?" What a kid! He's just such a thinker!

Funny story on the topic of Levi and babies. My mom has Levi and Natalie at her house for an overnighter. Natalie is bathing and Levi wants to come in. Mom figures its the perfect time to explain about things that are private and begins to and Levi says, "Wait just a second, Grandma! If this is about babies and where they come from, I already know everything!" Mom, of course, asks him what he knows and he replies, " Daddy plants a seed in Mommy and it grows into a baby!" with that "Isn't it obvious" tone. Can you believe it...he's only 4!!! I am just glad that my simple answers satisfy his curiousity!

So the countdown begins...only 29 weeks to go:) That doesn't seem like very long to me! Sammy better learn how to walk, quick! Maybe we should start with crawling....:) Good times, good times!

Well congrats!!! I guess your just tring to get to those 5 kids quickly. Isn't that about the age difference between natalie and levi? Any ways let us know if your right on the girl thing. And I don't remember much about rachele's pregnancy but I can tell you girls are different than boys for sure...at least in my case.

You make Keeping Up with the Jones' a real challenge. Harry and I are also 15 months apart, if that gives you a clue as to mom's back, knee, hip and assorted other ailments. At least you are alternating boys with girls.

CONGRATULATIONS! You're nuts, but happy and that's all that matters. You're such a great mom, and how fun to have them all so close and bunched up together. So happy for you!

Well what a good picture at only 11 weeks. It is exciting, challenging, but exciting. And I think your nuts too. But congradulations non the less.

Emily said...

Major congrats from me. Of course since I just did this whole thing I think you're slightly nuts too, but you can definitely handle it. I will take your kids whenever--you were such a great help with me. I'm so excited for you--a girl too! I didn't know they could tell so early, curious if that's what happens...

Anna! You're wearing me out just thinking about it. The truth is, I'm just jealous... That's very exciting! Here's to a healthy and restful (ha ha) and uneventful pregnancy.

You need to email me and tell me about your new house - I'd love to hear all about it.

Harry & Teresa said...

Congratulations! We are so happy for you. Thanks for letting us see your new house.

Stephanie said...

Hey congrats! With all of them being so close they will probably be the best of friends!

Becca said...

Congratulations!
Shanon (and Ben, who's very busy right now drafting his fantasy hockey league;)

Well, hey, I guess I can't complain, because I'm the worst communicator on the planet, even when it comes the my family. But congratulations! Now I won't feel so bad when people find out that Shanon's pregnant at about 8 months. :)
