Jake & Ben, 10 Months Old
Doesn't Ben look like he is catching up! He has been off of his diuretics for over a month and is doing great!! Jake continues to grow, grow, grow!! Ben is 17 pounds and Jake is 21 pounds!
Overall, the boys are doing great! I have been feeling a little under the weather...I guess that is what happens when you are 11 weeks pregnant! YEA, you heard me...PREGNANT! We are very excited and a bit nervous. We were planning on waiting another year or two before trying but God has a different plan for us! We feel very blessed! Other then a random diagnosis of hyperthyroidism, the pregnancy seems to be going very well. Ohh and there is just ONE little peanut this time! :) I am not too happy about being on meds for the hyperthyroidism but my doctor keeps reassuring me that once the condition is under control, everything should be fine. Please keep baby K in your prayers!!
Hope you are enjoying your summer! XOXO
Danielle & Kevin

Oh! and yes! Ben DOES look like he is catching up to Jake nicely!! I can't believe how big they are and how far they have come... Congratulations to Ben and Jake on being big brothers!!

So, does this mean you and Nicole are due around the same time?

Congratulations on your pregnancy. I am so excited for you and Baby K is in my prayers!!!

I am glad all five of you are doing well! Is Nicole pregant too? I will give you a call and we will set a date to visit and catch up!

Hi Danielle,
Wow have the boys grown! It is so wonderful to see their progress. What little cuties.

Congratulations on your big news! You will certainly have a household full of noise and love. What a lucky baby to be born into your family.

The girls are doing well. I can't quite remember what my sister said their weights were up to, but they are certainly growing. Their baptism is this weekend, so the family is trickling into Minneapolis.

Hope you are all doing well. And, again congratulations on your big news.

Take care:)

Hi Danielle,

I stumbled upon your blog while doing some research on IUGR. (It actually came up on a Google search!!!) I was 24 weeks along when we realized we had a problem. 10 weeks later, everything is going very well and I'm going to be induced in 3 more weeks as long as there are no major setbacks. Our little guy is in the 4th percentile and at this point we're hoping he can stay there (or get bigger!!!) over the next few weeks.

I want to THANK YOU for your blog. Your positive energy in the face of overwhelming odds has been an inspiration for me. I've read through all the archived posts and followed your journey. Again, it gave me hope through the last 10 weeks and reassurance that doctors may be doctors, but they AREN'T Gods. There's only one of those and He is who is truly in control.

I wish you the best of luck in your pregnancy and continued prayers for your family.
