I've been meaning to tell y'all something...

God's timing...you can't beat it...which would be the exact reason it's GOD's and not mine...

It's hard to believe that almost 7 months ago, we were facing a very difficult time in our lives (you can read our stories here and here).  My original due date would have been September 21, this Wednesday. 

I imagine, had everything gone as we had planned, that I would be waddling around the house barely able to stand the anticipation of having my sweet, new baby almost here!  
My plans were so so different than God's and with the birth of many of my friends babies this month and the constant reminder that September 21 is right around the corner, God has put an amazing peace in my heart that He knows so much better than I do.

With all of that being said, I am beyond ecstatic to share some news with you all!

WE ARE EXPECTING #2!!!


We heard the heartbeat and it's strong and there's a little boy who's pretty excited to be a big brother.



Here's our little punkin' head...this was taken about two weeks ago, little arms and legs just a kickin!


Thumbs up for a new brother or sister!!!


I couldn't ask for better blog friends to be able to share our journey with.  If you follow me on twitter, my massive amounts of food tweets will probably make perfect sense now...and I apologize for my definite lack of blog posts lately.  I've been just about to die keeping this secret for so long!

I am still in the bittersweet stage of this pregnancy. 
 Caleb and Seth have been such troopers!  
I have spent the better part of the last month or so laying in bed, watching Disney movies with Caleb and sleeping every chance I get.  Some woman are blessed to not have the "morning sickness" but I am far from one of them. 
 Just before week 6 hit, the nausea began and it's still going strong.  I wish I had "morning sickness" but mine is more like all day and night sickness.  
I'm super excited to be sick but I definitely won't be sad when my little "friend" decides to leave me alone :)
Excited to start on this journey of our lives...I think it's gonna be one wild, fun ride!

I am so thrilled for ya'll! My very first pregnancy (that ended in miscarriage) had an EDD of September 22. And wouldn't you know that the pregnancy before June had an EDD of April 21....the very same date that June was born, 13 weeks early. God's timing is perfect and absolute!
