Hansen #5

 So, we have had a pretty exciting secret around our house for the last couple months. The day Dave and I could "spill the beans" to our kids was so great. Yes, it is true, Hansen #5 will make an entrance this July!  I am feeling so blessed to carry another child and am beyond happy to have another baby to bring home with us this summer. I created a book that we gave to the boys and now that Jaxon can read it was fun to see his reaction as he realized what he was reading to himself... he was going to be a big brother! (I had to lay a blanket over the boys as Austin was butt naked, as he often is, when it was time to read the book. He would not put clothes on and I wanted to get pictures!!)

 Excited Big Brother!

 My boys... big brothers together. My baby getting bumped up in this family!

 Jaxon has been so interested in reading about his birth and first days. He has me read to him each week what the baby is doing now and how he is growing. Here's Jaxon reading his baby book :)

 Austin now tells us almost every day... "My name is not Austin anymore, my name is big brother!"

 Here is our peanut at 13 weeks. The babe was all over... just like his/her siblings :) 

And mama at 14 weeks. I am so glad to be past the first trimester. I had a rough 8 weeks... I was really sick with Jaxon's pregnancy and felt great with Austin's. I forgot what pregnancies can be like after such an easy one last time. Hmmmm, do I have another Jaxon coming soon?!?! I did appreciate the symptoms though, as they gave me hope that everything was working! However, I'm very glad to be past that stage!! Pretty sure I was 20 weeks before I showed this much my first time around.... I feel so big at 14 weeks already!!
