InstaFriday - Special Edition

life rearranged

What a crazy amazing week it has been!  The camera crew here this week to shoot the documentary was not the biggest highlight of the week (though it was an awesome experience!).  Here is what we have been thinking about this week (and the last twelve weeks!):

Tiny diapers...

Tiny clothes...

Tiny shoes...

Tiny Mickey ears...

Tiny arms and legs on our 12 week sonogram...

Because this sweet girl is finally going to be a big sister!

And she is even more excited because our sonogram
tech is 85% sure that it is going to be another girl!
(Which has been her request all along!)
We'll know for sure at our 20 week sonogram in November.

We cut one picture off of our strip of sonogram images for Hannah to keep with her.  She loves to show it off and told her baby dolls one day, "This is a picture of the best baby!"  She is always asking, "What week is it?" (Week 12) and, "What is the baby doing right now?"  Melts my heart!

We are all very excited!  We have been praying about adding to our little family for two years.  The doctor told us everything looks great!  We got to see the little one kicking and waving at us during the sonogram and heard the heartbeat.  Such an amazing experience!

This little one is due to make her debut on March 22.  Hannah's due date was March 17 and was born on March 6.  We love March babies!

We have a name picked out but we aren't going to announce it until we know for sure it is a girl!

Wild Animals and Documentaries

We've been enjoying the cooler weather after being stuck inside after this HOT summer!  Last week, we headed to the zoo and, today, we headed to the park.  Hannah has changed so much, even just in these last few months.  I love having conversations with her and hearing some of the things that come out of her mouth.  It is so much fun to see the world through her perspective!

Hannah has Meet the Teacher tomorrow and then starts preschool next week, just in time for us to head out of town again!

Fun at the zoo...

They have an old Wells Fargo stage coach that kids can climb on.  Hannah jumped on and started singing, "Oh, the Wells Fargo wagon is a coming down the street..."

Fun at the park...

Today, our living room was taken over by a documentary team that came to interview Chet about his story.  (It is very nerve-wracking to know that your home is going to be the set for a major documentary!  Thanks, Mom, for helping me get it ready!)  The documentary will focus more on the positives of the Pro-Life movements rather than the negative like the picketing and killings.  It will tell the stories of pro-life survivors.  The documentary is being produced by Mike Huckabee.  All we know right now slated for release sometime in November.  We'll let you know when we know more details.

After the interview, they wanted some background footage of Chet with his family.  Hannah was a little camera shy at first, but then become our little ham.  After a few shots around the house, they wanted to head outside to the park.  Hannah had no arguments with that!  We stuck around after they were finished and played for a little while.

Love these two!
