Before I get to the big news.. Here is a Layout I did for this weeks challenge over at Scrapping the Music. It is my first time participating with them but I have been a LURKER on their site for awhile now and here is what I can up with:

I had my BETA (pregnancy hormone) test this morning. They like to see the number above 100, mine is 188.79. YIPEE. I am OFFICIALLY pregnant. I go back Tuesday and then Friday to repeat the test to make sure my numbers are increasing the way they should. So let's hope and pray that everything looks good. Cause last year at this time, my numbers didn't double properly and we all know how that ended up (after 10 weeks) :(. So Now, we remain cautiously optimistic, extremely happy and feel so blessed. We told Sarah today. We asked her if she wanted to be a big sister, she said no (she is always BEGGING for a Bro or sis so we had no idea where that came from). I was like, Alrighty then, well there is a baby in my belly, she smiled and walked away. Later tonight she told me she WAS excited. She says "I want a sister cause I don't like brothers, well, I like brothers but I like sisters better :)". She kissed my belly a few times also.
Speaking of Sarah, I snapped these shots of her today and they really make me teary eyed. I mean, she will be 5 in October, she is growing up SO fast. I just want to squeeze her and not let her grow up.
