I think I felt it. I knew it would happen sometime this month, but these first few, you don't know if that's really what it is. There have been a few times over the weekend where I wondered if that's what I was feeling...
What am I talking about?
This little jumper:
Yes, it's true. I think I've finally told most people in person, so I can start filling you in on the details here now. I am at about 17 weeks, and due in the middle of January. We have been married 4 1/2 years now and finally came to a point where we decided that yes, this is the route we want to go - our family of 3 has been great, but all three of us agree that a new little one around will be something we will never regret.
This is the other reason it was time to go through the storage rooms and all that baby stuff - not just for the garage sale! I got rid of our old crib in the garage sale, but we've got a much newer one given to us already. We have a stroller, a high chair and a booster seat for the car - I think the only other big ticket item we'll need is the car seat. That and boy clothes if that's what it happens to be. Oh, and a change table, I guess, and a snuggly that Dad won't be embarrassed to be seen in, an RESP, maybe a new toy or two, and boxes and boxes of diapers! Other than that, babies don't need much, do they?
I really feel that for me, there is no greater job in this world than to raise up children who love God. I look forward to being Mom to one more.
I am very grateful to God for this amazing gift, and I am grateful that I get to share our news with you! Linking up today with all the others counting the ways they're thankful.
