Week 7 is complete! Our little shrimp is starting to take form. As you can see from this real picture of our baby (wink wink), Little Sorbs has a giant forehead just like his/her daddy. Little Sorbs is definitely going to be a smart one with a noggin like that! Continue to pray for Steph as she has been feeling the morning/noon/afternoon/evening/middle-of-the-night sickness. On a similar note, pray that the tail on Little Sorbs will soon disappear (although it could be nice for a Baby Tumnus part in the next CS Lewis novel brought to the big screen)! Thanks for all your prayers!

Today I am 6 weeks pregnant. Does anyone have any cocktail sauce for my baby shrimp? I'm feeling great this week. Keep Little Sorbs in your prayers :)

Look at this sesame seed! Isn't it amazing that in just a few weeks Little Sorbs is going to look like a human?

For those of you who didn't know, you know now... Steph is pregnant!!! Here's the story of how it happened (how we found out you sickos)...

One Sunday afternoon Brandt was watching football with a friend. Unbeknownst to him, Steph had gotten home early from a youth event and purchased a couple pregnancy tests. She wanted to take the test, see the positive result, and make it a big surprise for Brandt. In true Brandt form, he foiled her plot. No sooner had Steph taken the test, Brandt walked in the house.

Frantically Steph tried to hide all of the evidence of her plot, but she forgot one thing. "Hi honey!" she said as Brandt came up the stairs. As they embraced, Brandt felt the pneumatic drill pounding in her chest. "What's going on?" he asked with a twinkle in his eye (Brandt always knows). Steph couldn't take it any longer, so she said "Come on, I haven't even looked at the result yet." They quickly ran into the bathroom and pondered what they saw. "Is it a line?" "It's kinda faint." "No, it's definitely a line." Finally bringing order to chaos Brandt said "I'm about 80% sure."

They wanted to take another one just to make sure, but they had to wait a while, so they went on a long, excited walk. Upon their return, another test ensued. This one was a different kind, but to their excitement, a faint pink line formed. "Now I'm about 95% sure," Brandt said with a smile. They were so excited about it, they decided to go to their parents that night to proclaim the good news. Shock and wonderment would be the theme for the rest of the evening.

Apparently the easiest time to test for pregnancy is in the morning, so that brisk Monday morning brought the third and final test. The box says to wait two minutes for a line to form, but it wouldn't even require that. A very solid line formed immediately, so Brandt proclaimed "Now I'm 100% sure!"

Now that you know the story, please keep Steph and Little Sorbs in your thoughts and prayers as it is still very early in the process. Don't hesitate to call and share your excitement with Steph & Brandt (hopefully I won't continue to write in the third person). Thanks everyone!!!
