Hey Emily! Thanks so much for the sweet, encouraging comment.

I think I am about 10-11 weeks along. I haven't been to the doctor yet. Seriously, your comment made my day. I usually get poor you so for you to not even say one negative thing meant a lot.:)

I miss you and your blog and seeing pics of your kids!!!!! Hope you guys are doing well.
