Quick 7: Baby Addition.


Some wonderful news.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words:


Due date:

4th February 2010.


So far:

Everything is going well. I did have a bit of morning sickness that hit a peak at 9 weeks but now I am feeling great.


Baby ticker:


Our other children:

Are all very excited. The girls wanted to tell everyone but we have made them wait till today. Brigette cannot wait to go shopping for baby things. She also has been telling me what maternity clothes I should wear.


In other news:

Evy from yes they are all mine had a give away for her first anniversary of blogging.

I was the lucky winner. The bag shown above is a photo from Evy's blog. I could have taken my own photo of it but decided just to steal the one Evy put up. The bag is great and I am going to use it as my baby bag. I just have to keep it away from Brigette for a while. She has her little eyes on it.


Trixie Belden.

I have started reading the first Trixie Belden to Tom and Amelia this week. They both enjoy listening to it.

Pop over to Jennifer's blog for other quick 7

Congratulations :) Now we really need to get together and compare bellies :) I actually already knew ;) a little birdie told me this afternoon when I went to pick up her daughter to babysit for me :D:D I'm so excited for you. Hugs from the other preggie 43 yo mum of many

Therese said...

Thanks Cathy and Tracy.

Tracy. Do you usually go over? I usually do so I don't really expect to have our babies at the same time. Maybe by the time yours is 6 weeks old, I will have my little bundle.

Mrs. K said...

I wandered over from conversion diary. Just wanted to say congratulations on your pregnancy! I was one of seven kids and we were always so excited when a new one came along. I'm due Jan. 3 with our first and coincidentally we've already decided on the name Brigette, if it's a girl.

Therese said...

Mrs K.

Thanks. We had our first on New years day. Maybe you will too. He is turning 18. I cannot believe we have another adult in the house and a baby on the way.

Brigette is such a beautiful name. It was the only pregnancy that I chose a name and didn't change my mind on. As soon as she was born I said to my husband that the name really suited her.

Thanks Paula.

We are pretty excited.

Did I ever tell you I am number 3 of 12? My baby sis was born 2 weeks before I married.
Big families are truly a blessing.

Marilyn Rodrigues said...

Therese, congratulations.

Getting to know people like you and Steve really encourages us in our efforts to be more generous parents as well.

We were talking the other night about whether it is time to actively try for number 4.

We'll pray for you; please pray for us as well! (I have a theory that God has a soft spot for the prayers of pregnant women!)

Nancy said...

Therese, I'm so glad that you are doing well and that God is bringing you another blessing! There is NOTHING more exciting to me than a new baby!
Congratulations! You, your family and your new baby will be in my daily prayers!

Sarah said...

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
