Exciting News!

Peter is a big brother! We are expecting our sixth child on December 12, 2015.

It's been kind of a rough pregnancy so far, as I won't take Zofran this time around, but I think I've mostly got a handle on the nausea now. (More details about that here.)

We'll have our anatomy scan in late July if all goes well (I've had two past miscarriages so I never assume anything). We only have a 4% chance of having another baby with clubfoot, and if the Zofran was indeed the culprit our chances of having another clubfoot baby are pretty slim. Regardless, we'll love him/her unconditionally.

Peter had a follow-up at Phoenix Children's yesterday. The orthopedist was a bit concerned because his feet still have a tendency to turn in slightly. But he may outgrow it as he starts walking more, so we'll take a wait and see approach. He still isn't walking on his own -- he cruises along furniture and stands independently, but hasn't quite made the leap to walking unassisted yet. We also picked up his fourth pair of boots!

He loved the wall toys at the pediatric orthotics office.
