Last Wednesday, I found out that we're expecting again! I waited a day to tell James so I could plot out how to best surprise him. I helped Hannah (my 3 year old) create a fun picture for daddy. It had a mommy, daddy, son and daughter. Then it had one little one that wasn't red or blue (the sex differentiator in the picture). It took him a minute but when he figured it out, he was incredibly excited!
Right now, you can pray for our trust in God and His sovereignty. Because we lost our second baby, we always have the fear of that happening again. We've had dear friends lose many more than one and our hearts break for them. I've battled with some stomach cramping for several months now but when it greatly intensified the night I found out I was pregnant, it sent fear all through me. I've been to the doctor within the last month, had several ultrasounds and they've yet to figure out a problem so I'm hoping it's just digestive. Anyway . . . so there's the request.
We're starting to think of names again. All of the names I really like are the most popular ones in the country. Not that I'm totally against that but I'd rather have something a tiny bit different. We've obviously got some time to think about it though.
A few people have asked if we want another boy or another girl. Great question - as if we get to choose! We really don't have preferences as of now. In general, I'd love another laid back little baby like Benjamin was. But I can't promise that was the 'boy' in him for sure. The 'drama' of Hannah is a bit much but again, how do I know that's all 'girl' and not just all 'Hannah?' Hmmmm . . .
So I guess that's it for now! How's that for a journals update!?
