Joel and I were blessed to hear a strong heartbeat for Baby #3 this morning. Yep, we’ll have a 5th wheel after all (and we couldn’t be more excited). I’m 11 weeks along, nauseated, worn out and joyful all at the same time. This little pumpkin is due October 19th, exactly the date of it’s Mimi’s birthday. However, my babies tend to come a week or two early, so we’ll see what happens in late September/early October. All I know is that I’m looking for a very small pumpkin cap that he/she can wear while in the hospital. Wouldn’t it be darling? Shopping friends, keep your eyes peeled…..
Ella is very excited and already checking on “our baby” throughout the day. I really don’t think she has a preference- she just keeps saying, “It’s a boy or it’s a girl! We’ll just have to wait and see…” Seth can sign the word “baby” and he, like any other 2-year-old, has no clue what may soon be entering the picture.
Thanks for being excited with us and thanks for praying for our new little one. I think the shock of having a new baby has worn off and I’m starting to settle in to the “we’ll be just fine” train of thought. Mothers of more than two children, do not leave a comment unless you have something encouraging to say about having a third child! 😉
