This week has just been weird. We have been moving along in life, walking the straight and narrow, working toward our goals, and suddenly we feel like our feet have been knocked out from under us.

We went for our first ultrasound and found out that I'm 11 weeks instead of 13 (which explains why I'm STILL sick), so that puts our due date on December 27. This should be an interesting Christmas for us :) The ultrasound didn't go as well as planned...they found some abnormalities in our precious baby's head. Honestly, it's the most heart-breaking news to hear. They have scheduled another ultrasound for week 15, and depending on the results, we may need to go to UAB for further testing. We are scared and sad, but know that this sweet baby is a miracle from God and that we will be given the strength to meet whatever challenges may come.

On a brighter note, my sisters have been able to spend a lot of time at our house, and we've had a great time playing with them. We've colored the driveway with chalk, played in the sprinkler and water slides, gone to see Kong Fu Panda, had a few Uno tournaments, found a frog in the yard, and even spent an afternoon at Chuckie Cheese. It has been so much fun to have them spend time with us, and I am grateful that God gives us moments of joy to make the challenges a little easier.
