Baby Makes Five


You totally knew after that last post, didn't you?

Question for you... what does it mean when the kids outnumber the parents?

I don't know, but come next summer, we are going to find out! It may seem like this blog has been pretty quiet over the past few weeks, but little did you know. There was all sorts of secretive story-telling, desperate praying, and drafting of the miracle of life going on behind the scenes.

But we'll get to those posts. (a three-part series, even)

Today, when I heard that heartbeat galloping and saw my raspberry-sized baby on the black-and-white computer screen, I swooned. Even though it was my second time to hear that beat, it was official. I am pregnant and I am soon to be the mother of three. Awesome.

I am proud to announce that my boys and I are expecting a third bundle of joy in July 2013. Our official due date is the 12th, but Nathan is already planning on sharing a birthday with him or her.

Thank you so much to those who have already poured out your congratulations and best wishes. Please continue to keep my little bean in your prayers. It may seem like easy work, but growing in a womb can be complicated.

PS: Be sure to check back tomorrow for part one of the story. (NO, not that far back, get your head out of the gutter!) This goes back to the morning of Sunday, November 4, when I cried in the office bathroom with a positive pee stick in my hand. It's good times. :)

Until then, the happiest of all Thursdays to you!

I am loving your blog! I'm also so grateful that God answered your prayers. I know how you feel about seeing so many negative tests and just knowing it's going to be negative this time as well. That was the point I was at - but it just proves that these little miracles aren't up to us! :)
