FINALLY!!!!

Most of you already know this but for those of you that don't I wanted to let you know that we are PREGNANT!!! I had my first doctors appointment today and my due date is now July 31st (changed from July 24th). My due date was pushed a week later with Ava too! We are very excited to add a little one to our family and Ava is excited to be a big sister (at least we are hoping she is).

As for me I can't wait to enter my second trimester! My energy is GONE at this point and I'm sure Ava is wondering what is going on. She has to entertain herself more and more these days. But 13 weeks will roll around and I will forget I was ever sick!! I love being pregnant and so I am excited for this and and can't wait to have this little bean in our family!!


And on to other not so great news...Spencer Coleman Hind (Christians grandpa) passed away yesterday (Wednesday) morning. I only knew him for 5 years but of that Christian and I lived with him and Christians grandma for 6 months. I am glad I got that opportunity to get to know him because he is a great man. As I was going to school to become a sign language interpreter he was always so great to help me out when I needed it. I am happy that he has returned to our Father in Heaven and reunited with his mom, dad, and siblings. Most of all I am so grateful that his hearing has been restored! Everyone is very excited to sing for him at his funeral on Saturday! We love you Grandpa! Click here to preview his obituary.

Yay for another mini Chrispy! :)
If its a boy are you still planning on Spencer? That would seriously be SO neat. If you don't use it, I will! :) (since I'm going to have 10 boys...)

Congrats! And as for naming a boy Spencer-- I couldn't think of a better name. I'm partial to it. Hope you have a Merry Christmas.

Yeah, but even better when the pregnancy is all over. I need to send you a pic of Neve that I just took, it looks eerily like Ava. I think Neve looks like you a lot of the time so I guess that may make some sort of weird sense. I will email it to you.
