It's not a photo but it is a picture of how we announced this pregnancy, a little hand made cartoon of an actual conversation my silly husband and I had about being pregnant and pretending to be the sperm and egg in the fallopian tube. yes, we are dorks.

 

 


Courtney and Cree, baby made 3, added one more then there were 4, sakes alive, then we had 5, another in the mix now we have 6!
