This year has been a year full of changes and excitement for our family. (Read about some of them here and here.) And, it seems that God has decided to bless our family in a BIG way as the year comes to an end. Yes, I’m expecting!
But, that’s only half of the story. Literally.
This picture is what I like to call “the biggest surprise of my life.” It seems that our “fourth and final baby” is actually TWINS!!! Yes, we are going to have FIVE kids. I have to keep saying that to myself so I’ll actually believe it.
To say that we were shocked is an understatement. We’re also a little scared and a lot happy. I feel undeserving of this wonderful blessing.
After our ultrasound, my husband and I went to lunch and had a 30 minute conversation that went something like this:
“Oh my gosh.”
“Oh my GOSH!”
“Oh. My. Gosh.”
(You get the idea.) We even took pictures of each other with our phones to capture the moment.
This is my shocked + severely nauseous look. . .
I’m so glad to be able to share this with you. The last couple of months have been challenging, to say the least. I always have a rough first trimester and this time was no different. Add three other kids and way too much work on my plate. . . it’s not been fun. The good news is that I’m feeling much better and clearing a lot off of my schedule. I’m officially due in June (if I make it until then).
As far as I know, this is the last big announcement I’ll be making on the blog this year. Prayers appreciated! :)
