On December 20th, 2015, I found out that I was expecting our fifth baby. I was so excited. It had taken us over two and a half years to become pregnant. To be honest, I had given up hope that we would have one last baby.
On December 23rd, I told Brandon that we were expecting in the Jordan River Temple. It was such a special experience. He was so excited and thrilled.
By the time we came home from our Christmas trip to Utah, I was starting to feel really sick. We decided to tell our family and kids that we were expecting.
Brandon was taking these pictures below of the kids. For the first picture, he told the kids to smile and say cheese while he took the picture. For the next picture, he told the kids to say, "mommy is pregnant." As you can tell from the reactions the kids were excited and shocked.
The kids were so excited to find out that the baby was a boy. Even though the girls might have been a little disappointed, the got over their disappointment pretty quick and have been so excited for their new baby brother.
Even though this pregnancy has been really rough and difficult at times for us, we have made it through with the help and love of so many wonderful people. It is easy to see the loving hand of the Lord in our lives.
Also, even though I have been sick, I have been able to push through and make it to everything that I needed to be to.
This baby is scheduled to arrive soon and we couldn't be any more pleased.
