Checking in...

I've got quite a few posts I've got to bang out since my last in FEBRUARY! Sheesh. Here's a quick recap...

Jack turned 5 (which is so much bigger than 4) and we had such a fun birthday weekend. Jason finished busy season and is home a lot more which is fantastic! Jason's mom came home from the hospital at the end of March (after being there for two months) and is so glad to be back home. We had a fun Easter celebrating the resurrection of our Savior with our family.

Oh yeah...

I'm pregnant. PREGNANT!

We just found out last Tuesday and I can say we haven't been more surprised or more thrilled about a pregnancy. Seriously we're crazy excited! So are the kids. Jack literally jumped up and down when we told them. Priceless. Caroline keeps asking to see the baby in my belly and I've got to explain just how small the baby is and that my tummy won't grow for a while. She can't wait to "change the diapers and rub it's back". Sweet girl.

I'm "due" on Christmas Day so it looks like we'll have a very busy holiday season. We're also really excited about planning our first homebirth. We're in the process of selecting our homebirth midwife, which is proving to be a little more difficult than I expected. Since I'm so involved in the local birth community I happen to know and love a lot of midwives which makes choosing just one hard. We know that God will lead us to the right one, though.

So, that's what's been going on the past couple of months. Exciting times are ahead!

So glad to hear Jason's mom is home and doing well. Has she completely recovered?

And, congrats on #3! Brody told me last night that he wanted another baby with a second mommy! Too funny...
