Our Big Announcement!

Coming September 2013....


Well, we finally let the cat out of the bag. We are pregnant!! This explains my TERRIBLE blogging for the better part of two months. We weren't ready to share the big news, and I have the worst time keeping secrets. I tried avoidance. It is totally an effective strategy.  Now, on to the details!

BG will make his/her appearance on September 29, 2013... Or at least that is my due date 2 weeks on either side leaves a nice big window.  Hopefully, baby will take after someone in our family that is punctual. This person is neither his/her father or mother.  Just for some record keeping sake, we have been to the doctor twice and seen a nice strong heartbeat both times.

I also want to forever remember what Bubba said when I told him I thought I was pregnant. I had taken four tests, so clearly I am a skeptic, and decided maybe I should alert Bubba to the baby situation.  He was still asleep in bed because he was sick, so I woke him up and said, "Gunnar is going to be a big brother!"  Bubba replied, "Did you buy a puppy?"  Which if you know me well, this is always a legitimate question as the urge to buy a puppy is a daily occurrence. We cleared up that this go would in fact be a human sibling, and have been excited ever since!

We have been so blessed by the amazing support of our friends and family, and BG is already a totally blessed child. Please continue to pray for BG and us as we transition to the great big adventure of raising children. God has richly blessed us, and we cannot wait to share His love and show His grace to BG.

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Your works are wonderful, I know full well." Psalm 139:14
