Why the Tree of Life?


Happy News

We're pleased to announce that we are expecting the pending arrival of P3, aka Peanut the 3rd, aka a little brother or sister for K and D. According to Dr. Google, my due date is April 11, 2008. We go to see my OB this Thursday to "confirm", but since I was dry heaving into the sink just this morning, I think it is safe to make an announcement. We're all really excited, especially D and K. K has requested a girl and likes the name Mikkel. Mikkel is one of the names we are considering if it is a boy, but K sees no inconsistencies with that. Mikkel Larson Røken was my Norwegian great-grandfather. K and D's names have come from E's great-grandfather, so it's time for something from my side. :) Røken would be a good boy's name, too. I'm liking A Rose for a girl, but E hasn't weighed in on that yet.

I'm actually not as nauseated this time around, and I haven't actually thrown up, yet, which is great, but I am more exhausted than I have ever been with a pregnancy. I could sleep all day and go to bed at night, no problem.


  1. Congratulations and what a special gift for you and your family.
