And Baby Makes…..5!!!

Share Button

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!  😉

    Congratulations to the Skaggs family! Sooo happy for you, and will be praying for your healthy pregnancy with not too much nausea, etc. and for a smooth, happy transition for Ella & Seth. Love to all…Jenn

    Obviously I only have 2 but every single mom of 3+ has told me that after #2 it’s really not a big deal. I guess when life is already chaotic, adding a little more chaos doesn’t feel so chaotic! What a blessing!

    Ha ha! Y’all are funny! Being a mom of 4, I can say that our surprise blessing of pregnancy #3 came with a mix of emotions! Surprise! Not only were we pregnant but with twins! No worries, if I can do it you too can & will survive! They are All blessings straight from God even when we may not think we are ready!

    So I’m pretty sure we’ve found your pumpkin hat… please allow a few months for delivery as our budget needs a couple months to recover. But do not fear, Baby Skaggs #3 will have the most adorable or manly pumpkin hat you have ever seen.
    And yes, my wife is that fast in shopping for specific things. I don’t know why, but it still amazes me 2 1/2 years in.
    And I can’t wait to watch him/her with Karis. I won’t be deprived of quality time with any of your kids 🙂 I love them too much.
