We have some exciting news to share with you! We have been keeping it a secret for quite a while now because we didn’t know how to process the news ourselves for the first several months…and then it was just fun keeping the secret. We are ready to take the cat out of the bag and share this exciting time with our devoted readers…
Go ahead-get the WOW!, (Gasps), You are going to be SO busy, Was that planned?!?, I hope you are done after this! comments out of your system….
I had those reactions too. Upon having deep feelings I was pregnant this summer, I took several pregnancy tests. They were all negative. But the feeling still didn’t go away and my *baby* suddenly stopped nursing which made me feel strongly that I was, in fact, pregnant. A few weeks later, I took ONE more. As the second line slowly started to appear this time around I was stunned with fear, excitement, OMG, how the HECK am I going to do this?? I JUST had a baby!! … these thoughts and a few more went rushing through my head as my 12 month old was throwing a tantrum outside the bathroom door. My husband slowly knocked on the door knowing something was going on since I had been in there so long. I showed him. Terrified. The biggest smile came across his face-with his own tinge of fear he congratulated ME (we laugh about this now), as he was genuinely happy-I was scared shitless.
MANY months have passed and I, too, am genuinely SO excited for this baby. ALL babies are blessings. This baby is such a blessing. It is like a special present from God showing our family HIS way. He has a plan for us in this life which may not look like the plan we had perfectly planned out. But through Him all things are possible and His plan is divine.
Our sweet baby is due this spring.
So…BRING ON 2016. It is going to a CRAZY one…and the best one yet!
