I’m sorry for being so lazy about posting lately!  I’ve been so tired and I’m behind on everything but my heartbeat.

I promise to get better at it!  Or try!

Here’s a few snapshots from our house today…

Then again, I might not be so good about posting for a wee bit!

Our family is in a bit of shock, to say the least!

I am 42, and thought my baby years were far behind me (we thought we were making sure of that!).

I am still at a bit of a loss for words!

I have a very high chance of miscarrying (50/50, I hear), and I have a very high rate of miscarriage in my past (a dozen before I had my four children).

Who knows what will happen, but I’m up for the adventure.  🙂
