Summer Fun

We've had a really fun summer so far. Jenna & I have a new tradition going on lately. While I am doing my hair and make up, she sits by the sink and watches or pulls out all of the kleenex's out of the kleenex box, etc. She loves to see herself in the mirror and copies what I do. Sometimes she even brushes her hair with her toothbrush. :)Jenna discovered the hose the other night and it entertained her for quite some time.
Adam waited patiently in the pool for his turn for the hose!
I've been a little under the weather every day until about 5 or 6 in the evening. We are really excited about having a new little one in our family, which means we will have a lot of changes this year such as a new car, a new house, etc. I'm about 11 weeks now and due on January 24th. I heard the baby's hearbeat yesterday for the first time, which is always very exciting! Here's a picture of my first ultrasound!

What!? I had no idea you were pregnant. Congratulations! That is so exciting. I'm sorry you have been sick though - you just can't catch a break. There are some houses for sale in our neighborhood :), I think our neighbor is getting ready to put his up for sale...Seriously, so exciting, we are so happy for you guys!

Congrats on the new little one coming!! How exciting! Good luck with the morning (all day) sickness. I know what you mean about big life changes all at once. Moving and having a baby in the same month should prove to be very interesting. Just remember to play your "I'm pregnant/get out of jail free" card as often as you need.

Congratulations!!! Our little ones will be just over a month apart. I am sorry to hear that you have been sick. I can totally sympathize. your little kiddos are so adorable so I can't wait to see what this little one will look like. Are you guys going to find out or will it be a surprise?

Congratulations on the baby. January 16th is a good day! :-) Life's changes are so fun, but can also be a major challenge. Good Luck!

It was so good to talk to you when you called to tell me the news. Thanks! I'm glad it's out in the open now. That is a lot of changes, but fun ones! A new car and a new house! Have you guys found anything you like? I wish you the best of luck in all of those big purchases. :) I'm excited for another Richards baby to join your clan.

I am so excited for you guys to join the ranks with a third baby. Congratulations! Wish I were there to help you out just like you helped me when I was pregnant with Mary. Hopefully the sick part will be over in a few weeks. Keep us updated. Miss you.
