Not your typical family....

Things are steadily moving along with the pregnancy.  I'm in my 19th week now!  We found out last week we were having a sweet baby girl, and we could not be more excited!  My doctor visit went very smoothly, and I still haven't gained weight so I'm excited about that too!  My sickness is starting to ease up some, and my appetite is getting bigger so I'm a little worried about the next weigh in. :)  I've started noticing some slight swelling after I've been on my feet alot or out in the heat, but it isn't too bad.  On a funny note... I was in the tub the other night and noticed what I thought to be a varicose vein near my ankle.  I freaked out!! Thankfully, it has disappeared!!!  I have gone out and bought a couple of belly bands to support my growing belly.  The heaviness of it makes my back hurt some, and wearing those support bands help tremendously.

Tomorrow, Joey and I will celebrate our 14th anniversary!  It has been 14 amazing years!!  Not to say, we haven't had our rough moments because we have, but our love for each other is amazingly stronger than ever and it only gets better every year.  We have been through the births of 3 children, battled cancer alongside our precious Colt, traveled to Vietnam to adopt our sweet Jolea, and now here we are getting ready to have our 5th child!  I wouldn't call us your "typical" family, but we are the family that God has called us to be. We are certainly confident in our ability to thrive as a family of 5, including Colt (we never leave him out!).  And who knows if we'll stop here.  I never say never!  We'll see what God has in store for us next!  So stayed tuned, things are certainly going to be hopping around the Crow house!
