{happy}

Yes, you guessed correctly. I've never been so happy to be this ill. Amanda and Abigail eagerly await their new sibling, due to debut mid-2010. One would think that the third time around, it's all old hat. But when the little Peanut waved an arm at us and wriggled around during the first ultrasound, I was wiping tears from my eyes. S/he already has my heart. Now, to get through the grueling morning all-day sickness with some semblance of grace... if you saw me picking up Amanda from school, you'd think I had a shriveled up twin! :) {small price to pay for the great gift within me}

Hoping, praying to get back to being wife/mom at full capacity again.

I haven't been able to do much with photo sessions, but I have posted some more from a recent wedding - click on the photo if you'd like to see more:



And check out my gymnast Abigail. I know, she's totally going to the Olympics! Bwahahaha:

I could not be happier for you and your growing family!!! I agree that the miracle of life never becomes old hat - every ultrasound amazed me! I had a lot more with Cougar (advance maternal age, of course) and had a 3D/4D US at 32 weeks and could see my girls in the pics ... the same lips, nose, etc. I hope you get to feeling better soon! At least we know it is worth it in the end :) All my love and well wishes to you and your family! Will you find out what you're having? I could never wait!

Oh, Heather! I am so excited for you and your family! What happy, wonderful, blessed news!

Being pregnant is such an amazing thing...my eyes are welling up as I sit here remembering it with my four. Even though it wasn't always easy, I loved it every time.

Congrats and hugs being sent your way!

I hope you start feel well soon, Heather. Those pregnancy sicknesses are not fun.

Beautiful photos and Abi is so so cute jumping on the trampoline!

Take a good care about yourself and your little peanut :)

Oh Heather! Such great news! Many congrats and wishes for feeling back to yourself. Small frequent meals is my tip. Low blood sugar makes the nausea worse...so have a bedtime snack (prefereably something with some protein so it lasts over night). xoxo

Oh, Heather! Congratulations! Hopeful, "morning" sickness will soon become just a vague, wretched, memory. What an incredibly wonderful time for you and your family! My third, my "baby", just got home from India after 4 months. *sigh*, they really do grow up way too fast!
