Another welcome surprise!




Although, since little Jackaroo was only 3 months old when this little one was conceived, I'd say this one was a bit more of a surprise than the last two!  It is so funny to me how we planned and tried so hard for the first three kiddos, and the last three have all been sweet surprises from the Giver of all good gifts! :-)  

When I called Dr. Y's office to make a new pregnancy visit, the receptionist took my name, looked me up in her computer, and then said in a confused voice, "Ok.... now.... were you just here in May?" I giggled nervously and said, "Yes, Ma'am, I was."  Then, she laughed and said, "Just wanted to check and make sure I had the right patient!"

I'm feeling great!  Not so sick as I was last time.  In fact, I feel so good it kind of worries me...

But, I'm a worrier so that is to be expected.  I think I worry a little more each time.  Just praying for a healthy little one!  

Elijah and I walked Rain today just the two of us.  Out of the blue, he looked up at me and said, "Mommy, you know what is the best part???  I'll tell you, Mommy, I'll tell you what is the best part!  The best part is that now Jack will have a little baby friend!!"

Our very own half dozen.  :-)

Oh Erin! I'm so happy for you! I giggled at first, trying to imagine how felt upon seeing those 2 lines. And now, I just can't stop smiling. Congratulations, dear friend! If anyone can handle six, its you.

Erin, you don't know me, but you are such an encouragement and inspiration. I recently found out I am expecting baby #5, and my response was not as sweet as yours! Of course, I am significantly older than you and I have to have c-sections. I have been so fearful, anxious...just a real mess. I am so thankful for your receptive heart to what God brings your way. What a blessing that is to Him! If you have any tips as to how you take it all in stride...I'd love to know! I have been reading my bible more faithfully, that's been the biggest blessing so far!

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.
