WE ARE EXPECTING OUR THIRD BABY!!!!
We could not be happier than we are right now. We just found out yesterday. And we just can't hold back on news this good, so we posted it on Facebook within minutes of getting the positive result. After calling the most important people, of course.
It was funny, because I had gone up to the store to grab a bottle of wine. I was standing at the register thinking, 'Hmmm... maybe I shouldn't be drinking this.' I wasn't about to walk all the way across the store to put it back again, so at the register, I just asked the cashier for one of those "cheapo dollar pregnancy tests." I didn't even tell my husband I had bought it. I just slipped into the bathroom with it. A couple minutes later when I went back to check on it, I was FLOORED! But not really, because I'm actually a couple weeks late. I just haven't paid much attention to it lately because everything's been so busy with the holidays. Stuff finally calmed down around here and I was like, Wait a minute.... So I've got a bottle of pink moscato sitting in my fridge. My friend Courtney is gonna come over and drink it for me.
So yeah! We're having a baby!! Based on my (and by "my" I mean "BabyCenter.com") calculations, I'm actually about nine weeks, give or take. So I'm finding out a few weeks later than usual.
And before you ask, yes, I'm hoping this one is a girl. I have been absolutely delighted with my two boys, but I really do want a girl. Of course, I'll be happy either way, But we need some bows and lace around here!
Oh, and we already have names. Well, first names at least. For a girl, it will be Carolyn, after my best friend who died at the hands of a drunk driver several years ago. For a boy, it will be Connor. Connor isn't after anyone, so if it's a boy, the middle name will likely be Gregory, after Dixie's younger brother who died of a heart condition at 18 months old when Dixie was about 4 years old. We haven't figured out a middle name for the girl. We're asking around about our grandparent's middle names and such to see what we can come up with. We like the idea of having a name picked out as soon as possible.
Maybe I'll do "bump-dates" but probably not. I'll aim for a monthly update, how's that?
Praise the Lord, we are so excited to be growing our family!
If you're the praying type, please pray for us to have a healthy pregnancy.
