a new baby.
for us too.
God has HIS own plans.
Everyone has been very supportive and excited for us.
I am adjusting.
As you do with any addition.
I didn't plan it so it's thrown me for a little loop.
I will be so super excited to meet my new baby and
see what God has planned for our family.
The ultrasound picture is from a 10 week visit.
We were totally guessing on all the dates so
we had an early ultrasound to determine a due date.
I thought I was probably around 6 weeks.
I am now 12 weeks.
Due date is October 25th.
We told the kids on Easter morning.
I set a little egg out with a picture of the ultrasound in it and
a little banner that said, 'a new little chick'
Emma got excited thinking we had gotten them a real chick.
They were so happy when they found out.
Emma was like a megaphone all day, telling everyone she saw.
She wants a sister.
She said the picture looked like a girl.
We let Tanner be a surprise in the delivery room.
That was fun for that one time.
But it was alot to take in at once.
I wanted to just enjoy and admire my 'baby' but
I also had to think...It's a boy, It's a boy, Its' a boy.
We will find out this time.
And maybe have a really cute reveal with the whole family.
Plus I want to buy some super cute sleepers and gowns.
That's the fun part, right?
I've been gahhing over the sweet clothes in the stores,
then I snap back to reality as my other 3 are running around my feet.
I like this quote:
"A baby is a sign that God is not yet disappointed with mankind."
I am daily doing my best to make these children into disciples for CHRIST.
I fail miserably. lots.
But the point is that I don't give up.
I also know:
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..."
Babies are miracles.
Babies are precious gifts.
We are humbled.
