Well, I have no new pictures of Micah to post this week. I have been mostly concentrating on trying to keep my breakfast down and therefore everything else has taken a back seat! What I do have is a picture of the pregnancy test I took almost 4 weeks ago. So, can you see the line? No, not the one on the right. I'm talking about the one on the left - in the window that looks like there's not a line in it... If you squint your eyes just right you might be able to make it out! At first Erik and I didn't see anything either, but then slowly I thought I saw something starting to appear - was I just imagining it? Erik and I went back and forth for a minute - "do you see it?", "I think so, do you?", "not right in the middle, but a little to the right?", "yeah, is that really a line??" We even left the room for a minute to clear our heads and then raced back to see if the line was still there. And it was! We were both pleasantly surprised and very excited. The initial excitement has dimished a little with the constant nausea and exhaustion, but it is still an amazing miracle!

Yes, that's right! Micah's going to be a big brother! We are all very excited - well, Micah will be once he figures out what's going on! We found out the news only 2 weeks ago and things are going well so far at 6 weeks along! The morning sickness is starting to kick in, unfortunately, as well as the exhaustion and all the rest of it. But we praise God for the incredible blessing of this new life! Please pray for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby in mid-November!

Sometimes I can barely get Micah to sleep an hour all day and other days I think he's going to sleep away the entire afternoon. Yesterday was one of those lucky "long-nap" days and I decided it was time for him to get up. It wasn't an easy task, though!

Yes, snow is a rarity here in BC, so when it happens, we have to capture it on film! Micah was quite fascinated when the huge flakes began to fall this morning and I think he thought the white stuff was pretty neat when Erik took him out in it. Now as I type this a few hours later, the sun is shining, the snowing has stopped and already the warm BC air is winning out over the snow. It was pretty while it lasted!

I will attempt to explain the collage of pictures from the past several days... Our weekend started out great as we finished up a week with my mom. We enjoyed walking around Mill Lake on Friday (Micah loves the swings!) and ventured out to see where Erik is working on building a house. They have the best view of Mount Baker I've ever seen! Friday night and all day Saturday, Erik and I were terribly sick with the flu (Micah had it just a couple of days before) so we laid pretty low :( By Sunday we were all feeling more like ourselves and we were able to make it to a wedding shower for Nathan & Rosanna that afternoon. The sickness seems to be spreading through the rest of Erik's family here, though. Hopefully it won't last too much longer!

My Granny Harder came to visit us this week all the way from Manitoba. Yesterday was her birthday and we went out to Boston Pizza to celebrate.
I love ketchup!
This is me signing the word "light" - Mom & Dad make me perform all my "tricks" when there's company around :)
