Peabody Is Getting Promoted

... to big sister!

We are very excited! That is to say ... Eric and I and family and friends are. The Boogie and Peabody, however, are kind of "whatever" about it. That just figures, right? But the more we talk about it the more interested they are.

Baby #3 is due in early February. Pops' birthday is the fourth, so he requests a grandson born on his birthday. Uncle Furry's lovely wife Auntie Ashley suggested that the baby could be born on her birthday, the fourteenth. I'm just looking forward to NOT being largely pregnant in any kind of heat!

I am feeling remarkably well. I had some morning sickness with both girls, not anything major, just a motion-sick feeling. This time, though, I don't notice it much at all. The early weeks brought some extra fatigue but that's improved already. I don't pass up on opportunities to lay down and rest for a little bit, however!

Last Friday Eric and I went for an ultrasound where we saw the baby's heart beating. It sure is amazing what you can see so early on.

We praise the Lord for His blessings upon us!

Congratulations! I totally understand being largely pregnant in the heat. I'm currently 36 weeks and it has made the 90 degree days even more miserable! So happy for you guys! Keeping fingers crossed that grandpa gets that grandson for his birthday! ;)

I'm behind on checking the blog, but thankfully saw your Facebook post when it was announced:). Very excited for you and thankful that You don't have nausea. Looking forward to mine being less:). The girls will probably be a lot more excited once baby comes out.
