4 plus 1 = 5!?!

2 parents and 2 kids means busy days but we aren't outnumbered yet. Although most of the time Daddy is at work which means this Mommy has her hands full. Come July all of the time we will find ourselves being outnumbered by kids!
Yes... after 4 years of trying/not preventing we are pregnant!!! I know that we will get a TON of comments to the effect of "that always happens" or "I told you that you just needed to relax".... well I think that it has a lot more to do with God's timing than anything else. We have been "relaxed" for 2 years now but for some reason NOW is when it happens. We have two wonderful, beautiful, children that we love SO much and are so glad that we have. We are just so excited to be able to give them a younger brother or sister. This isn't our "first" child... it is our third.


Yes.... we will have 3 under 3! But Keaton is so excited to have another baby around and Tiana... well she is such an easy baby who adores her brother, so welcoming another sibling will be no problem for her. Am I overwhelmed? I could be if I really wanted to be I suppose, but what we are, is SO excited to be parents again.


We are almost 13 weeks along and due the end of July!
Here is the little munchkin at 9 weeks.
This also explains why I haven't been the best emailer and blogger this past few months. (sorry) I have been sick. It is getting better though with more good days and only some bad days thrown in after I have a busy day or I don't get much sleep. Cars and me don't mix much right now especially in the evening but that should be getting better in a week or so.
We got to hear the heartbeat yesterday and it was a strong 160 beats a minute! We are excited for every step of this little journey. Our next ultrasound should be about 20 weeks so the beginning of March we will find out if we are welcoming another little girl or little boy into our family. If anyone would have told us 2 1/2 years ago, amidst fertility, that in 3 years we would have 3 children, we wouldn't have believed them at ALL. But here we are and isn't it exciting!!!

Congratulations. You two deserve this...well, the pregnancy part. I'm not sure you deserve 3 kids under 3, but you've already proven to be awesome parents and will continue to do a fine job. Hope all goes well for you.

Congrats to you all! We hope that everything goes well! I feel for you- being sick and taking care of just one little one was a task for me! Hats off to you! We can't wait to meet your third lucky child!!

Nana said...

Wow! What a nice suprise!!! We believe in God's timing .. going through various life experiences. Nice to think maybe God wanted Keaton & Tiana to live in a professing home with faithful parients. Maybe that wouldn't have happened if you would have had your biological children first. Glad we are in the same Wed nite mtg ... we can enjoy all three of your kids!
