Third time's a charm.......

Well we are now on our way to welcoming another baby into our little family. ( it's not staying little for long it seems). We are happy to announce We are pregnant! BABY #3 is due in August and we could not be any more excited. Little Elizabeth will be about 3 1/2 and Reed will just be 2! It should be fun :) There is not a moment that goes by that I am not thankful for these two children I have been blessed with and I am thrilled to welcome our new baby later this year. I'm sure my excitement will be multiplied once I'm over this awful morning (all day) sickness. It's tough. But I've been through it twice before and know how worth it it is so that helps. My sweet children have been so great while I have been taking it easy on the couch. Reed and Elizabeth come up all day long and just lay and cuddle with me. Elizabeth has been helping Reed get down from chairs, open fruit snacks and she even picked up the living room without even being asked. I can't even describe how helpful my dear mr. husband is. He has been letting me take the naps I need and he has been so helpful and patient. I'm on medication but it doesn't seem to change how I feel at all. Every night before Elizabeth crawls into bed (after we have said a family prayer) we have taught her to kneel by her bed and say a little personal prayer. Last night I heard her pray that we could be safe and that mommy could feel better. It just melted my heart. She really is a sweet little girl and I am so thankful for her and her little brother to help keep me company while we hibernate for these next couple weeks while daddy goes to work.

Aw yay!! I love when you're pregnant. You appreciate the blessings of babies and verbalize it perfectly. I hate when people complain about pregnancy stuff and you're the exact opposite! ;) You always appreciate how amazing it is, even through the horrible morning sickness. I'm so excited for ya and excited to see your new little one later this year! ;)

Congrats!! The more, the merrier, I say! Elizabeth will be such a big helper to you, and Reed will be old enough to kind of know what is going on. It will be nice for the two older ones to have each other. I have found it is easier in SOME ways to have more rather than less children in the regard that they help entertain each other. Other days, not so much :) I am very excited for you guys!
