Here Comes #3...or is it #4??

That's right....


We're expecting our third baby!!!!!!!

After a week and a half of what I thought might be the swine flu (just kidding), Mark and I found out on Mother's Day that I am pregnant (how fitting, huh...Mother's Day of all days)!  

SHOCK is an understatement.

No, we were not trying.  Yes, we are thrilled!   

Did I mention SHOCKED?

But we gladly accept the blessings the Lord sends our way and we are very excited!

I am only 4 1/2 weeks and we're due sometime in January.  I considered not announcing until 12 weeks because of a previous miscarriage, but we figure the more people that know the more people who can be praying for us!  :)

So thank you in advance for any prayers you send our way!!!

Congratulations!! I am so happy for you and Mark. You are a wonderful mother and any child would be lucky to call you Mom.

I will keep you and the little one in my prayers.

PS. I dreamed last night that you were pregnant with twins. Too funny, that today I found out you are expecting. Watch it be twins :)

Wait...

Last time was an April Fools joke so no congratulations from me until you look like you're smuggling a watermelon!

Hmm, 4 1/2 weeks, that would be right around that April Fool's Day joke you played on us :) - hehe.

Seriously though, praying for you and sending you good thoughts! Congratulations!
