That's how big our third baby is already! Soon to be the size of a lime next week. We are pleased to announce that we are excitedly awaiting the arrival of Baby Dodson #3 sometime around Valentine's Day 2011. William started crying when we announced the news in church this morning, but Margaret seems quite enthralled with the idea and I'm sure Will will come around when he realizes how much fun another playmate will be.

Since we've already hit the eleven week mark most of the trials of first trimester are over and done with. Mostly consisting of me having to tone my daily to-do lists down from a gazillion house projects to things like: wash dishes, feed the kids, take as many naps as possible.

Fortunately things are picking up again. And all of our animals are even still alive and the house hasn't totally fallen apart. Second trimester is where all the fun is and I'm looking forward to being in it.

I'm also already thinking fondly of loving on those little fingers and toes and ears and eyes, all of which are already formed. New life is always so exciting.
