A new addition

No, we're not talking about "new math" here.

We would like to share some wonderful news! The Lord has abundantly blessed us with 4 beautiful children and has now blessed us with a new baby! Lord willing, we'll welcome this new little blessing into the world in January, or thereabouts. Everyone around here is ecstatic and filled with many questions :) Things get interesting when the children are older! I'm sure some of you can relate!

Mr. E is constantly wanting to kiss the baby. Miss E said she'll offer up name suggestions when we know if the baby is a boy or a girl. Very practical of her ;) Miss A can't wait to hold the baby. Mr. Baby, I mean, Mr. A - well, he's in a for a big surprise :) , but I'm sure he'll handle it well when the time comes. Scary to think of him being out of the crib though....yikes....but then, he will be almost 3 at that point.....and not so much a baby any more.

There will be a lot of new things to get used to...for one thing it'll be a new hospital for us. All of the older children were born in the same hospital before we moved a few years ago. Lord willing, we'll be blessed with care as wonderful as we received previously. Around here, well, we may have to look into trundle beds, bunk beds and the like in the future :) But, that is a little bit down the road!

Alright, I won't make you wait any is our newest little one...

Isn't he/she cute? :) It's a wonder the image isn't a complete blur - the ultrasound tech said the baby was bopping around constantly! A sign of things to come....? hmmmmm.
