Guess what?!!?



Thank you Lord for this blessing!

Yes, we have been a bit shocked & surprised-but very excited-that God has blessed us with another child! We are just beginning this journey and I ask that you please keep us in your prayers. The girls are excited and Gracie has taken it upon herself to be my health guide. I told her last night she should be proud of me since I'd only had 1 diet coke that day (as opposed to the many I usually have.) She said, "We need to get some vegetables & protein into ya!" She is already a good big sister to Katie and she's going to be the best "big, big sister!" Katie is excited, but you know....she's only 3! We'll see how it goes with her being the middle child!

Psalm 139
13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—and how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

I need more details... when are you due? I WILL get to see baby this summer, right? We are so excited for you! Philip called me from work and said - You have to read J's blog! Of course, I already had, so I just laughed and asked if he just had a gut check! Ha. Oh, and between your news and the camp pics, I did get a little bleary-eyed. Sigh.
