A growing family!

We found out last week that we are expecting! Yes, Jude is only nine months (ten months in a few weeks). He is still nursing so I am pretty excited that I was able to get pregnant. That boy will not take a bottle, a sippy cup, nothin'! Just me!  And you know what? I am glad! I will continue to nurse as long as I can.


I know many people keep pregnancy a secret until they have passed the twelve week mark, but I don't like that. If for some reason I was to experience a miscarriage (I have before), then I will have many people praying for me. Please begin to pray with me now for a healthy pregnancy and baby!


We are planning to use a midwife and have a home birth this time. In a few weeks we will begin the search for a midwife in this area. Praying that through the interview process and recommendations from several friends, we find the perfect one! 


Thank you for your prayers! 

by the God of your father who will help you, by the Almighty who will bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that crouches beneath, blessings of the breasts and of the womb. -Genesis 49:25


He will love you, bless you, and multiply you. He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground, your grain and your wine and your oil, the increase of your herds and the young of your flock, in the land that he swore to your fathers to give you. -Deuteronomy 7:13


Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, -Ephesians 3:20


Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. -Psalm 127:5

Woohoo! Congratulations!

(And to encourage you with the nursing, Cailin was 8 months old and nursing full time when I got pregnant with Cassidy. I nursed through the whole prgnancy, stopping only when she was 15 months old so I could have one month off of nursing before starting back with the new baby. Was great!! Enjoy every minute! )
