1+2=3

Or is it 2+1+1+1=5?? Either way, a new member will added to our family next May!! We are tickled to death!! My two boys had due dates in February (Joshua the 17th and James Christofer the 25th), but both came on February 4th. Don't ask me how that happened - completely unplanned. We are praying that this baby will NOT be born on February 4th - that would be much too early!!! I am so excited about having a spring baby!!

There is something so unique and wonderful about being pregnant, about seeing two lines on that silly little stick!!! It is knowing that within you God is at work weaving, molding, creating a precious little life. What an honor that he allows us the privilege of participating in the creation process with Him. I love being pregnant. I really love being pregnant. And, I have awful varicose veins during pregnancy, but it is so worth it!! I can't wait to feel the flutters!! The magic of the moment is as awesome today as it was the day I found out that I was pregnant with Joshua. A new life - thank You, Lord!

When you sent me the email last night, I swear I did a happy dance, right at my computer. And I'm doing one right now, in the bathtub. (Yes, I'm really blogging in the tub, and no, you don't want a visual picture of that!)

Hooray for this child; he or she will be SO blessed to be a part of your precious family!

Happy dancing . . .

How exciting! Congratulations. I pray that you have a fabulous, healthy pregnancy. And that the Lord would take care of those vericous veins before you even get far enough along to have them bother you.
Bless you!

Congratualtions!! My "babies" are grown up people now, but I do remember how excited I was when I found out I was pregnant. You are right Erin, it is so humbling to be part of the awesome miracle. God bless.

I finally stopped by from Sarah's blog and wanted to say Congratulations! What wonderful news. :) I have a May baby and must say that was probably the best pregnancy seasonal-wise. Loved it! Hope all goes well.

Congratulations! There is just nothing more exciting than being pregnant. I, too, have lovely varicose veins (sp?) during pregnancy which got worse each time, unfortunately. But, girl, I agree with you--it is all worth it! I am so happy for you!

Congrats!! So exciting!

I just found out that I expecting my first child in late April. A little hard to believe still, but what a journey!

chickadee said...

that is so wonderful. congratulations. and i have to tell you i was just wishing my girls had the same birth date. one was august 25, the other january 26. if they were both august 25 i could have one birthday party, they would get gifts on the same day instead of one always feeling a bit sad.

my last baby is a boy and 4 years apart from my youngest girl so he doesn't (right now) get jealous when they have a birthday and get a new barbie.

anyway, the birthdays like that may be a very good thing.

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
