The old blog has been neglected. I have a good reason. I promise. Baby Bum #5 will be here in April. I have been extremely nervous and work up this pregnancy. The Dr. asked us to put off the big ultrasound until I was almost 24 weeks. The reason was the heart, and everything else for that matter, would be bigger and easier to see any abnormalities. So, by the time the ultrasound date came up, I was a nut case. The ultrasound went beautifully though! The tech kept saying she was happy we had waited so long because she could see everything so much better. This first picture is a picture of our ultrasound picture, so quality is not so great! But, it is the perfect 4 chamber, every vessel coming out of the correct ventricle, no holes heart.

Again, this next picture is not so clear, but I will explain what Baby Bum is doing here. Baby Bum is laying on his/her back with his/her legs over his/her head. If you look close you can see the knees are right in front of his/her nose. Then his/her arms are wrapped around the legs! Limber little bugger!!

Baby Bum already weighs 1 lb. 10 oz. In case you are wondering, that is a big baby. That was at 23 weeks and 5 days! I am now 24 weeks and 3 days. I have reached the point of viability if the baby was born today. Don't get me wrong, the baby needs to stay where he/she is for a while longer, it is just that much more reassuring that if something did happen, there is a chance of saving Baby Bum!
Gracie, Garrett, and Carolina are all getting so big. Gracie turned 14 last month and really, is there only 4 more years until she is old enough to go to college!?! So not ready to even think about that! Garrett is 10 and he is turning into such a young man! Carolina is almost 22 months! She is so big, definitely not a baby anymore!
I am going to be posting more. I have decided to do the 365 project. I have been taking the pictures and keeping up with them on a 365 app on my phone, but I thought it would be fun to post them on the blog. And, since I can now blog from my phone, it should be pretty easy to keep up!

Monica! It's great to hear from you again...another precious baby on the way! That is wonderful news. :) I have to say that even though I am not pregnant again like you, I feel gripped with fear at the thought of another pregnancy, even though it's my heart's desire for our family to grow. I will pray that you will have a peace for the remainder of this pregnancy. Can't wait to "meet" this little one. :)
