Little Miss Quinn

I know I've been all but non-existent these last few months but this morning I got up and decided it was time to finally make the announcement:Isn't she cute? We found out about 3 weeks ago that we're having a girl and we are all very excited! Keely has been busy making all kinds of crafts for her new sister, but Ben doesn't seem to exactly get what's going on since every time somebody points to my belly and tells him that there's a baby in there, he points to his and says, "there's a baby in my belly too!" Well, he might be a little surprised. Fortunately he absolutely loves babies and I'm hoping he'll be pleasantly surprised. : )

My pregnancy has been terrific and I can actually see how some people take so long to figure out they're pregnant. Outside of being a little more tired and growing a belly, I really feel pretty normal. Baby girl is due in March right after Ben turns 3, we are very excited to meet her!

How you doing? I haven't heard from A2 in a long time. Hows it there? Tell me its horrible and nothing cool is going on. That way I won't miss it so much.

Michelle and Byron said...

This congrats is sooo overdue, I have been meaning to call you for weeks. I still get so excited just out of the blue for you guys, we are so thrilled. Now I am just going to be jealous at all of the warm fuzzy pregnancy feelings going on. I mean come on, I love to lament with the best of them. I am barely starting to feel normal, but I am suffering the consequences of having not been normal for the past few months. Truly I am happy for you, glad things are going well. I want to see some pictures of you pregnant! CONGRATS!

Jenny said...

LISA... this is fantastic news! It is a miracle! We are absolutely thrilled for you! And Shawn!

Hooray!

We miss you guys... and still consider our time with you in NY one of the best years of our lives!

Congrats on the upcoming little girl! I had heard through the grapevine you were expecting! We're so excited for you! I'm glad it's gone so well for you!

Ryan Blad said...

Lisa- So awesome! congrats, are you going to be in Utah for Christmas, if so lets meet up and have a girls night out. -steph

HW said...

Hooray! You know, it's kind of eerie. My parents went on a great beachy vacation with their first two children (a girl and a boy, both adopted), and soon later found out they were going to have a baby girl (me) after a decade of infertility. We are delighted for you! Thanks for sharing the happy news.

emily said...

LISA QUINN....I had no idea!!! Obviously I'm super behind in blogs since I am seeing this more than a month after you posted it. I am truly thrilled for you and your sweet little family. I still can't believe it! So happy to hear you are feeling well and that you're enjoying your pregnancy. Big hug to each of you! Also, can you please email me your new address? Christmas cards are on the way. HURRAY for your baby girl! xoxo

Whit said...

Ummmm.... holy crap. Where have I been? Congrats you guys!!! I am beyond excited for you. What a gift. And what a lucky little girl to have all of you.

LL said...

very very excited for you...was hoping to see some pics! You're beautiful all the time - I'm sure you look great pregnant! And probably much more fashionable than I ever was (I defaulted to baggy old sweats as soon as I started to show...you, no doubt, have a cute wardrobe of maternity clothes!) Pretty pretty please post some pictures of the pregnancy, the family, etc. :-)

Kerri said...

I can't get over the miracles you guys have seen--I'm so excited for your cute family. We are 2 months behind you with our baby boy :)

Hubers said...

Whoa!!! So excited for you guys. Think I might cry.
Lots of love coming from our way.

BBB said...

We just read this! We are soooo excited for you.

Danelle said...

Okay, so my mom called and told me that you had her on Grandma's birthday...so, are you going to update your blog now, so that we can all see her? Please? Pretty please? Oh, and congratulations!
