We’re Having A Baby!!!!!
Matt and I decided, for the first time in our family’s history to “try” for another little Ireland back in December. And low and behold, in the middle of January, we boldly took a test and with great joy and the feeling of yet another new beginning, we saw 2 lines (positive)! We were elated, and within days, sick! It’s no fun to be sick, but it’s always a blessing to know that being sick means a healthy pregnancy!
We actually got to see an ultrasound at about 6weeks because in the interim, I contracted H1N1 flu and was in the ICU at my hospital! Matt and I both had a peace regardless of my illness from God that everything would be fine, and here’s what we saw….
… a perfect little baby with a heartbeat telling us it was fighting right inside Mommy too!
It was not obvious at first, but there’s a little baby in there. Here’s my tummy in January!
Trust me, it does NOT look like this anymore!!!
We held out with great anticipation to tell the boys and finally we got to. I was still recuperating from the flu and pneumonia and could barely get up from the couch, but it was still one of the most exciting things Matt and I have ever done. These boys have been wanting a baby for years!
Here they were as we read “And Baby Makes Five” they were totally clueless, we still had to write it out for them. They were VERY excited!
OK, NOW they understand. They just kept hugging us!
And here they are, New Daddy, Big Brother and Bigger Brother! What an exciting journey we are going to have! I cannot believe God has given us another blessing! God is so GOOD!
“Children are a gift from GOD; blessed is he who has a quiver full of them”
The big day is…
