Announcing...



































My "New Hope" is almost 24 weeks in the making,
and I display all the usual evidence of this small person's presence :-)

We plan to herald this next blessing at the end of April
increasing our numbers,
and filling up another seat belt,

but mostly
adding the joy and wondrous delight
that another uniquely precious soul
brings
to our eager and amazed family.

We can hardly wait!

Yay! Congratulations! I am so excited for you all! How in the world did you manage to keep it a secret for that long? I'm impressed!

Thanks ladies :-)
Morgan, I enjoyed carrying my own knowledge without fanfare longer than I usually do, but really it's just that I haven't blogged about it.
Sometimes it's nice to cherish what is growing in ones heart without enduring external scrutiny.
For some reason I have felt like that this time.
I am very privileged in the Lord's blessing!

I'm so happy for you!! Very exciting!! I'm going to try and come visit one of those 3 days i mentioned. probably the friday.

Momma Bug said...

Outdoor mom,
That sounds wonderful. I think AJ will be out of town again at that time so I'll probably lie low. I would love a visit!

Susan,
It warms my heart to meet a new visitor to my blog. Thank you for saying hello!

An April baby, how exciting! I've aways been rather partial to April, besides, one of my dearest friends was an April baby.;)
Nothing like the promise of new life to get you through a cold winter, is there?

Life throws you surprises! said...

That is exciting news!

Tiffany said...

Yay! Congrats! When you commented on my blog about being so far along awhile back, I was wondering when you would announce it or if I'd even read it right! I love the picture too, did you draw that?!
