Exciting News

I'll let the pictures do the talking.....

Yes, you've got it! There will be a sweet addition to our family this May!

It's hard to put into words just how we feel about this soon-to-be member of our family.  

Blessed. Thankful. Excited. Amazed.  That doesn't even seem to cover it.

I always felt like our family wasn't finished--- like there was more to come.  I have impatiently  waited for the right time.  There were two toddlers and a husband gone for weeks at a time for work  Then there was a move across states.  And last was but not least there was living with my parents.  

I am not as naive as I used to be.  I was a young mom with Nash and Emmie (23 and 24) and didn't have many friends with young children.  Back then I didn't know how many women yearn to be mothers but struggle to conceive.  I thought it just happened. I know now just how expensive and exhausting having children is.  All this in mind, we still felt there was more in store for us.  Nash and Emmie are the light of our lives.  

God has chosen us to be parents for the third time.  

Emmie has the new calling of being a big sister.  And now Nash will take on the challenge of helping corral not one, but two little ducklings. Having children that "get" that a baby is coming is the most exciting experience in the world.  I now have to willing participants that want to talk "baby" 24/7.  They want all the details (within reason--- don't worry classmates' parents).  They pray for their new sibling every night.  They have big plans for diaper duty and burping responsibilities.  

We thank you in advance for your prayers and well wishes!  

Lots of LOVE!

  13. Yay!!!!!! That is so exciting! Life with 3 is awesome, so far! :P My older boys (8 & 4) "get" it too and are SO helpful-most days. Seeing their love for their little brother melts my heart and reassures me that we made the right decision with "finishing" our family. {I felt like you--that my family just wasn't finished--for some reason I like to feel outnumbered! hahahaha! Must be because I'm always outnumbered with kids at school... why not at home?!) :P

    Best wishes for a easy pregnancy----and hey-stop by my blog to enter to win a fabulous Chicco jogging stroller!!!!!!!!!! (that was perfect timing! lol) I just blogged about it today. It would be perfect for you! My older 2 ride bikes and I run with the 2 month old in the stroller.
