Surprise, Surprise!!


Okay, blink again. Yes, you are seeing a sonogram! We are expecting our second child on January 2. (I know the sonogram says the 8th, but the doc is wrong...trust me!) If this pregnancy is anything like the last, he or she will come the beginning of December. I am almost 9 weeks. We are excited and full of many emotions. Keegan and this new little one will be 18 months apart. This for starters evokes MANY emotions, but God's grace is so sufficient. He must know that I can handle it. Praise God. I never dreamed that I would have two in diapers, but the outcome will be so sweet. To have them so close together creates the best of friends automatically. (at least I will be praying hard for that!) If I could ask for a prayer request, pray that I can make it through the first trimester with Keegan, fatigue, and nausea. I have a had a few days already that have tested my dependency on God. On the brighter side, God is so good to us that He provided our house the same week we found out we were pregnant and we sold our house last week at the asking price. Already He has proved that He can provide in unexpected times! :)

Oh, it gives me so much joy to think of Keegan and his little bro or sis being so close. I love it! I've had so much nausea the last few days that I really thought I was joining you in this. But it's just a virus. Still, I don't know how I'm going to make it through 3 months of morning sickness one day while dealing with a toddler. Take notes for me! I'm praising God for His incredible faithfulness to you through the house situation. Love you guys!
