a family of four

part of the reason that i haven't been posting too much recently is that i've been waiting to share some exciting news...yep, you guessed it, i'm pregnant again! i am around 12 weeks now which puts my due date in september. lillie will be just over 2 1/2 and is very excited for her little brother or sister to "come out". jed and i are excited to see our family grow, but are also cherishing these last moments as a family of three. i know the next six months will fly by and baby burkholder number two will be here before i know it. stay tuned for pictures of my belly as it grows and more information as we know it!

we were convinced after the second test was positive too (above)!
a self portrait soon after we found out (below).

a shot of our early ultrasound photos from three weeks ago (above).
the next two images may not be the clearest ever,
but they show lillie talking about the baby (below).

Congratulations Laura (and Lillie and Jed), I love the pictures you posted along with the announcement they have a great photojournalism feel to them.
Anyways I hope things are going well and I am eager to hear if its a boy or a girl!
