family of four :)

Big news in the Surratt household this month! We are having another baby and Maggie Claire is going to be a big sister!!! Of course we are all really excited, and can not wait to meet this new little one! 
My due date is February 28th, but I'm guessing the baby will be here before that because I'll have a scheduled csection (I had a csection last time w/mc). 
I took a pregnancy test while Mike was at work and got a positive, so I wanted to do something fun to tell him we are expecting. I immediately threw on some cute clothes, got out the tripod and made a little setup! These pictures turned out cute, I love her sassy expression in the top right picture. hilarious! The funny thing is, Mike saw the picture of the pregnancy test on my ipad before I showed him these pictures. He said "why did you take a picture of a pregnancy test if you're not pregnant?" I said, "Mike, I am! read the lines!!!" It was really funny, and then I showed him these pictures. He is really excited too. 

Here is the sweet little gummy bear! It felt so real seeing the baby on the screen for the first time, especially that fluttering heartbeat. The baby's heartrate was 167 beats per minute and measuring right on track at 7 weeks and 5 days. 
This is going to be so fun comparing the two babies during my pregnancy. At Maggie Claire's first ultrasound, her hearbeat was 136 bpm. Now, I'm wondering if it's a boy?!?! who knows, we will be happy with either one and I can't wait to find out! I'll be 9 weeks on Thursday, and I am definitely ready to be done with all this queasiness and all the fatigue. All I can think about are those sweet sixteen white powdered donuts, yum... no wonder I can't button my pants anymore! haha

    offspring a reward from him."

Congrats lady! I just love that you "threw" that adorable shoot together after you took your test. Major skills, my dear.
