Big News!

Our family has a secret we would like to share!

........


Oh man. I was trying so hard to come up with some witty and clever poem or delivery. But when you have a PLACENTA goring in your body....words escape your....you know that thing inside your skull. Brain. OH man. I threw away a pair of Baby Layne's shoes and a pack of brand new socks, because of said PLACENTA in my body. I've been known to throw my keys in the garbage, completely forget my cell phone, miss several appointments, and other stuff I can't seem to remember. Hum!? So in other words....I'm PREGNANT!!! It's #4 if some of you have lost count. We're so super excited and I'm thrilled to finally be able to tell someone ANYONE. So this little one will be due May 20th. I'll have an ultrasound Dec 22nd to find out if it will be a boy or girl....can you guess what we're hoping for!? So we'll be having a Blake Baptism in June AND a Baby Blessing, too! So if you think you'll be in UTAH sometime around the end of June we'd love to have you celebrate with us.


Yes, I said UTAH! That's another bit of news. We're moving. Dan wants to go back to school and finish up his degree and find a new line of work. We don't imagine we'll be in Utah for forever, but a few years of school and work should do the trick!

We are sooooo excited, and sooooo sad to be leaving our amazing ward family and friends. I don't want to talk about that right now because I'll probably cry. Another post perhaps. So please, anyone know of a fantastic place to live? Or know someone going on a mission that needs a cute little family to house sit? Or know of someone that rents out their basement?? You get the idea! Any bit of information I'll take!

EEEEEEEEE!!!! That's me excited and nervous.

Congratulations!... on both the placenta and the baby;)There are so many fun new adventures in your life. Where in UT are you planning on going, and when is this big move?

Nickell said...

Yay! I'm praying for a boy for you! You should do what we did with Kade, we had our ultrasound right before Christmas and had the tech put the "sex" in a box and we wrapped it and opened it on Christmas morning. It was fun!

I love it all!
Where will Dan be going to school? Wish our condo had still been available to rent to y'all but it's rented :(
I love all your news! I really really do!
So Chinese says girl? or boy?
I had complete faith in them til my #4 was wrong :)
I will admit I'm sad y'all are moving to UT after we LEFT!

Congrats Shay! That's amazing news! I grew up in Pleasant Grove and we lived in Cedar Hills for a while in Utah county, so let me know if you are looking around there. Just call me up, I'll tell you what are the best places around.

And I can't believe it! We're due on the SAME DAY! It will be interesting to see if the babies both have the same birthday though. Keep us up to date. It's amazing news for you guys. Congrats again on both of these and when you've moved out there, let us know where you end up so we can come say hi!
