there's a fetus about to greet us.

well, it's not "about" to greet us....

but yes, the big strader family news is that on or around july 28th we will become a family of 5.

surprised?  shocked?  elated?

well, so are we!

i've been pretty sick, but finally coming out of the darkness of that blasted first trimester.  the doctor's visit a few weeks ago made it officially official, where we saw a little bean with a fluttering heartbeat.

so there's our big news to ring in 2011.

happy new year to everyone!

I am thrilled for you! Another Strader child to read about, seen through the eyes of a realistic, amazing, wonderful mother. I love reading your thoughts. I love seeing your pictures. I love that you're pregnant again. You'll be a great mama. I wish you were on that online Mom's show again...oh well. Update often!

Yeah! Our third, Emery, was born July 20th. I'm sure having being pregnant in Arizona in the middle of summer won't be fun but being up here in Canada, it was actually a great time to have a baby. Glad you're coming out of being sick! Congrats!
