The time has come for #17!

Well folks, we have finally passed a hurdle that we have been working hard to jump and we have decided to make an official announcement:

We are pregnant with our 17th, wonderful baby!!

As many of you may know, we have been trying to conceive and have had 2 losses.  We are at the 11 week mark with no issues, a perfect ultrasound and we have passed the 10 week mark where we lost our other 2.  Christi and I had told a few people, some via Facebook and a few in person, but we finally feel comfortable sharing it here in a blog post.  In Christi's words:

"11 weeks today 11 weeks today, wooohoooo finally past my last 2 losses at near 10 weeks, first milestone, getting to 6 weeks with no issues, then 8 weeks with a great ultrasound, now past 10 weeks, wooohoooo hope to hear a heartbeat on Thursday 4-11. Woohooooo our 17th child so far is really really on the way God willing."

She has a way with the woooohoooo, that's for sure!  This is her 24th pregnancy in total, and at 11 weeks, it looks like this:

Needless to say we are extremely happy to finally be able to share this news!  To those of you who already knew and offered congratulations, and those who have offered up prayers when you knew we were trying, we say thanks!  We look forward to more good news and updates until the ultimate update, which should be around October 26th.

God Bless!

OK, so we're going to be total grandparents like that.

  C'mere sonny, let me show ya' a picture of my grandkid!

So what did you expect?  She's adorable!  How can we not share photos?  Jess has started bringing her by the house more often, and when she goes back to work, we'll get to watch her while mommy and daddy are working...
...time to begin the training BWAH HA HAAAA!
Seriously though, we can't wait to spend more time with her little cuteness.  As to her progress, she's doing great!  Eating great, all breastfeeding so far, pooping great...everything you'd expect from a 7-1/2 week old little munchkin.  Mommy and Daddy seem to be holding up pretty well and we couldn't be prouder.
Stay tuned for more typical grandparentness...
