I tried 15 times to rotate this photo. Already stubborn and not even born yet. MUST be a Turner.
Our visit to the doctor on Friday was a success! We got to see the grain of rice that we will one day name. We did get to hear a little heart beat as well. It was nice to see Dr. Christine and her nurse Cindy again. They are always very friendly and they seem so genuine and excited for us.
Randi kept asking me if I was nervous? I honestly didn't get any emmotion until we saw the baby, or the grain of rice that will become a baby. Excitement and pride took over at that point. I think most of it was the fear of becoming emmotionally attached before anything was certain. When Dr. Christine told us that since we had heard a heart beat, the chance of miscarriage was less than 10%, that made me feel better.
Baby stuff is about to take over the house once again. In the meantime we need to cater to Momma and spoil her rotten so that baby rice has the best growing experience possible. This is difficult though with me working full time and Randi at home raising two little girls. We'll just have to make the weekends special Mommy days. We've already started this but this weekend we'll let her fly to Mexico to relax for week. Enjoy Momma.
ALL of our love.

We've got a long way to go but it's getting more and more exciting as the days go by. It's starting to sink in a little more and it will really get exciting once we visit the "doctor".
Two little girls and a baby at 32. My dreams of being a dad are suddenly a reality. Addison and Aubrey are growing up so fast. They have their own OPPOSITE personalities and I fall in love with them again every time I see them. Addison was brought into the bathroom to me this morning while I was getting ready. There I stood in a towel and heard Randi say "Can you keep an eye on this one while I clean up her mess?" She turns the corner with Addy and Addy says "Papa". Melts me. Melts me every time to know that these little girls know me as their dad and that I am there for them. Soon there is going to be a third. A THIRD CHILD! Trips will be more fun. Tailgate will be a blast. Life in general will be so much sweeter. This dad thing is a blessing and the family part is a dream come true.
So much to do. So little time. Gotta figure out which room is going to be nursery #2.
Much Love To All.

Keeping quiet about expecting a baby is not easy. I understand the point of it completely but like Randi said, "You've got to show excitement or you're not fully living in the moment." Soon enough.
Last night Randi and I were lying in bed and I mentioned to her that there is an iPad app for Babycenter.com that tracks your pregnancy and shows what the baby looks like as well as gives you tips about different things. It mentioned something about taking a second pregnancy test "just to be sure". Well when I mentioned this to Randi, she freaked out. She went to take one because I had her all worried. It too came back positive. Having had two positive tests, I told her that we must be having twins again. What if we did? Our chances are up from 6% to 12% I believe we were once told. I think it'd be wonderful! Boys, Girls, Girl/Boy doesn't matter to me. Randi did mention though that if we have a second set of twins that I WOULD be getting snipped. Scary!

Well as some have already guessed, we are expecting our third (and or fourth, and or fifth ) child sometime in May or June. Randi took a test when we returned home from the lake on Labor Day and it showed a faint + sign. We have our first appointment on September 24th at 9:30 and we're praying that everything goes well. We decided a few months back to go completely off of birth control and give ourselves a "trying window" before Randi went to Mexico in October. Because we are still so early, very few people know right now. I'm sure there will be a lot more in the coming days that will just so happen to find out but like I said, we're still early. It's exciting and scary at the same time. It's definitely something that Randi and I want, but there's always that thought in the back of my mind that something could go wrong. Time will tell and our prayers have all been answered so far. Even when times were dark and we couldn't see the next few months, God answered our prayers and gave us two the next go around. It's out of our hands but we'll do everything that we're supposed to, to make sure things go the way they're supposed to.
