baby number 5

We are pleased to announce that a new addition to our family will be arriving this fall! I am 8 weeks pregnant and we are so excited and due November 5th! I am definitely going to find out the sex of this baby, so we will let you know as soon as we do. I went to the dr. yesterday and I got to see the little blob and the heartbeat, so it seems as if all is growing well at this point. Of course we are crossing our fingers that it is a healthy little thing, but we'll take what we get! We feel very blessed that Heavenly Father would entrust us with another little person to raise. It really makes you step back and look at the stewardship that parents have. Sometimes, I am not the best mother and Jonathan can vouch for that! But we love our kids and look forward to having another one in our midst. We would love a little boy, but we would spoil a little girl!

Too fun Leslie! I'm so excited for you! Not too long ago you said to me "Can you imagine how crazy I would be adding another child to this bunch?" Or something to that affect. I'm excited to see how crazy you will get!!!

I am so excited for you! The Sanders seem to have a monopoly on the boys so it will be fun to see if you keep up that trend. Good Luck!
