First peek at the new McIntosh baby!

I had the opportunity to get a few ultrasounds the past week in the clinic. A doctor there is doing some research and asked some women if they would participate in a free ultrasound around 13 weeks. I said of course, I would love to get a peek at the little one- especially since I can't feel anything yet- it seems to really make it seem "real" then :-). The doctor didn't get the exact reading she needed from the first ultrasound Monday, so I went back today and got another one (i'm exactly 14 weeks today). It's so amazing what has already developed! I thought i'd post some pics for you to enjoy of our new little bundle of joy on the inside :-)

Side profile of head-cute little nose and round face already :-) haha


Playing with fingers- almost sucking thumb in this picture (today he/she kept playing with their little hands and even gave us a thumbs up sign at one point! so funny!)

Elsie taking a look at her new brother or sister!

She was so excited to see the new "ba-ba" on the screen (baby) haha.

Elsie Knows a Secret!

As some of you may know, we are finally announcing that Elsie is going to be a big sister!! Lyle and I discovered in mid-March that there was another McIntosh baby coming our way! We have been going to our check ups and things are moving right along already. I am 12 weeks pregnant due on November 12th. We heard the babies heartbeat last week- a high 170! We decided since things seem to be going well and I'm about through the first term already, we are hopefully safe to let everyone know the exciting news!

I have been up and down with the sickness this time around. I am pretty nauseous in the mornings and exhausted 24/7! The semester is almost finished though, so hopefully the stress will die down some!

It's been a while since I've posted on here so heres a quick update with what else is going on in our busy lives. We are still in the process of buying Grandpa John's farm up the road- the amount of paperwork is unbelieveable! We are very close to being done though so hopefully we will know soon whether we are farm owners to be or not to be :-) Lyle is of course keeping busy with working and keeping busy with the sheep and hogs. Fair time will be here before we know it!

I actually started my own business within the last month. I am a consultant for Usborne Books where I carry a large variety of children's books. I absolutely love having the business and even better i LOVE the books. If you are interested at all in ordering, hosting a book show, or even just looking- let me know! They are great. My website is:

Miss Elsie is fully walking now. Though shes been walking between furniture since 9 months- shes officially seemed to be about done with the crawling business. She's also been quite chattery lately, too! I can't believe she's going to be one in less than a month now!!

We hope all of you have been doing well, too!
