Baby #5

Baby #5 is expected to arrive on Valentine's Day!
Yes, this is a surprise baby! We couldn't be happier about it. After coming home from our big trip out East. I couldn't figure out why I was so tired. I thought it was just from traveling for three weeks with four kids by myself and driving over 3,000 miles. The tiredness didn't go away. I put two things together and I realized that we were expecting a baby.
I kept a secret from everyone. It was getting harder to hid my growing tummy. I figured it was time to set my first doctor's appt.
We had our u/s and the baby is prefect. The baby's heart rate is 160. At first, we couldn't really see anything. The baby appeared to be sleeping but it wasn't too long. The baby was up moving around like crazy. The baby stretched it's long legs. We could even see the baby's feet and toes. It wasn't too long, that the baby was waving at us. We could even see the baby's fingers. CRAZY!!!!! The nurse this was the best u/s she had done in the past two weeks. In the picture, the baby is waving at us.
The nurse, told me that I was actually a week further a long. So, my due date moved up to Feb. 14th. I still can't believe. A Valentine's Day baby!

We decided to tell the kids at dinner time about the new bay. I remember, that I had an old Valentine's box of chocolate in Leah's closet. I pulled it out and put in the pictures of the new baby. I told the kids that we had a surprise for them. They were so excited. Logan opened up the box but at first he was upset that there was no chocolates inside but the other two kids saw the pictures before him. Leah was in complete shock, she keep saying over and over again...what are we really having a baby? Her face was priceless! Landon claimed that he knew all along because he thought it was weird that I was going to the doctor because I never go to the doctor. Logan is super excited as well. The boys want the baby to be a boy and Leah wants another girl. We will find out in a couple more weeks.
It feels good to let the cat out of the bag.
The baby Leilani and baby #5 will be 20 months apart. I have never had two this close before so things should be interesting. I'm not sure how baby Leilani is going to handle it but hopefully she wouldn't be too jealous of the new baby.
This will be our last baby!!!!

Tooth Fairy

Leah lost her first tooth. She's so excited. She's making phone calls. She can't wait for the tooth fairy to come tonight. I'm a little bit sad, it means she's no longer a baby but a big girl. I actually pulled it out for her, it was really gross but it's out and it's no longer bugging her.
As soon as the tooth came out, she couldn't wait for the Tooth Fairy to come! Logan yelled out to her that Mom is the Tooth Fairy but luckily Leah wasn't paying attention. I was very disappointed that Logan was trying to ruin it for her. I told him to hush up. I wanted her to believe in the Tooth Fairy, even if it was for this time only.
She was so excited to go to bed, she like a kid excited about going to bed the night before Christmas. She told that she wanted the Tooth Fairy to bring her a $100 bill. I told it that probably wouldn't happened but we would just have to see.
She wanted a little treasure chest to put her tooth in for the Tooth Fairy but they only give those away to students at school that lose their teeth at school. So, I found a small jewelry box and we put it under pillow. She went to bed with a big small on her face.
She managed to get up very early in the morning but she came to my room and told me that the box was gone and the tooth fairy didn't leave anything. I told her to go back to her bedroom and see if it possible fell underneath her bed. She enough she came back into my bedroom with a big smile on her face and she was holding up $1 bill. She couldn't be happier.
On a side note, Landon was really upset that Leah received $1 bill because when he lost his first tooth he only received .50 cents. I told him that it's
So, it's official she's no longer a baby but a big girl.
