Happy Halfway, Baby!

So for those of you who are just finding out our exciting news, you may be wondering what took so long to blog about it, right? Well, after being classified a "high risk pregnancy" with a 30-50% chance of fetal demise, I didn't want to jinx anything. After much prayer and the faith of so many, we were just declared a " healthy pregnancy", and we couldn't be more pleased or grateful! Our God truly is a God of miracles!!!!

Here is what Baby looks like from the inside.....
And from the outside.......

After 4 and 1/2 months of trying to be faithful and leave everything in the Lord's hands, it feels soooo wonderful to have that burden lifted! Oh, and another reason for the smile is my fabulous chemo medicine for nausau!!! Hallelujah!!!!



With 3 girls and 3 boys, this is the "tie-breaker" baby! And the new majority is.......(drum roll, please......)


THE GIRLS!!!!!

Expect baby girl Washburn to be arriving in time for the holidays!!!! Hooray!!!
