News of the Week

I suppose most of you know already by now, but I figured I'd make an official announcement on my blog for those that might not know yet. The Brandt's are having another baby! I find out in a couple of weeks what we are having. It's been a pretty rough pregnancy but I now am feeling much better and more myself. They actually have me on a small dose of Zoloft which has helped my moods tremendously. There is definitely a different mix of hormones going on with this pregnancy. So you can imagine we are very anxious to find out the sex. I will be having another c-section. They've scheduled me for the 28th of August for now. I'm a little sceptical about the date because it's a week before my due date. Both my boys had some breathing problems at birth so I worry that that will happen again. Anyway, we are very excited for this next little one. Adam originally wanted a baby sister but now that he realizes that she will probably want to watch princess movies, he's strongly opposed to a sister. He also thinks that the baby should be named "chimpzilla" if it's a boy. Sorry buddy!

I was going to send you an e-mail to get the confirmation given your post on our blog. Congrats! That's so exciting!! I seriously think something is in the air. Everyone I know that is pregnant has said the pregnancy has been the hardest so far. I know it has been true for me! It's supposed to get easier the more you have, right?!

Congrats Kara! I am so happy for you - my pregnancy was totally different with a girl than with the boys, so Adam may just behaving to watch a few princess movies! I love reading about your homeschooling experiences - you are my hero!!

haha so cute that the princess movies changed his mind about wanting a sister. He loves to tell Lukas at church that his purple/pink ties are for girls... he definitely is all boy :)
