Even though I feel so yucky I am SO happy to be pregnant! I am extremely relieved to be past my previous miscarraige date of 11 weeks. This baby has been our most prayed for baby so far. The boys, especially Nicholas, pray daily for the health of the baby. The strongest prayers they have offered were several weeks ago when I was spotting and very nervous. Sometimes, if Nicholas figures out that I am feeling sick, he will immediately drop to his knees and pray that I will feel better. The faith of children is strong. I hope Heavenly Father doesn't answer every prayer exactly, however, because last week Nicholas prayed that I would have 16 babies :) I think one will be enough.
Here are a few pictures of Estella with her favorite bear. I was checking the light before a photoshoot and grabbed Essie as she was. This is the way my kids look most of the time lately...messy hair, mismatched clothes, and dirty faces. I think they are all still happy, though, and that is my main goal!
