We're Pregnant!!!


It's official! The Sloan family is expanding by two feet. We are happy to announce that we are expecting a bundle of joy on February 15, 2008. This is the ultrasound picture from our appointment on July 13. It was awesome to see the little heart fluttering away. At my most recent doctor's appointment on Monday I actually got to hear the beautiful sound of our baby's heartbeat--"whoosh, whoosh, whoosh, whoosh"--how awesome! Right now, our little sweetie is about the length of a lemon and weighs approximately 1.5 ounces. We are so excited about this new life growing inside me and can't wait to share each step of the way with you. Keep checking in and we'll keep posting!
