  4. Just a stranger coming by on a rec from @elizabethmarie-1.  Congratulations!   Those years of having new children (I can’t believe they’re gone already) were wonderful years and each new positive came with much excitement, anticipation and even a little trepidation as to how we were going to get by with yet another child.  I read your post with just a tinge of envy.  I hope this new child brings much joy to your home.

  5. Oh my goodness, oh my goodness!!This is SO SO exciting!! I am just thrilled for you!Darling announcement, oh my!And how fun that there is someone else that I’ll also be pregnant alongside for a few months! That is always so very fun for me. :)Oh, baby news has just got to be one of the very most exciting!And… those paninis look like they’re straight out of Panera Bread. Amazing!

  6. YAY!  This announcement is just too cute!!  SO so so happy for you.  I pray your pregnancy will go well and you’ll be blessed with another healthy baby girl? boy?   Hugs….

  7. You are so clever with the announcement!I am going to come see you while you are pregnant..AND then when the babes is born. Pinky promise.Brock is jealous over Brent’s car chair and in the next comment he says, “O I am so glad she has a summer baby not a winter one. Poor her if she would.”  Not sure where that came from :)We’re excited for you! … and the chillins wish I would still be having babies.Praying that the tough months are behind you.

  8. @hicktownfarm – i’m gonna hold you to that one dear!!!  altho’ i must say that seeing me pg is not such the pretty sight@ and, i should have mentioned that i’ve seen other announcement type things with letter tiles, so it’s not exactly my original idea. yes, Brock’s not the only one glad it’s not a winter baby…being pg all thru the summer? YUCK! it’s not been bad, but this week, as you know…not so great. it’s looking up tho, so PTL! miss you so!!!

  9. So very happy for you!! I was exclaiming ” They’re gonna have a baby!!” and my daughters came running, and I was trying to explain who you are. lol I have not commented but been a “lurker” and am trying to mend my ways. 🙂 May God bless you with health, energy and grace in the days ahead!! ~Marlene

  10. Congratulations!! The mug is hilarious! Love that.Oh and that sandwich? I am now craving a hot sandwich with melted cheese…..mmmmm.Have a great weekend! Hope you are feeling well!

  11. Yes, the baby announcement was a surprise … love those announcements!!  2012 looks exciting for you all 🙂  Love the mug – sipping on a matcha tea with honey and whipped cream now… always looking for BIG mugs ;)In this techno age, I hear “I’m bored” a lot from my kids 😦  Of course, if we’d have some snow to go with the cold, they might enjoy some sledding – all we have now is mud and I guess I’m not letting them play in it cause I’m not wanting to clean it up 🙂  I dreamt we got 5 in of snow and were sledding on pieces of tarp last night… ?  You have strange dreams while pregnant?? 🙂  Praying for health for you and baby.

  12. Congratulations!! So exciting. Isn’t so much more fun when you have older kids and watching their faces when you tell them the “secret.”:) I remember the girls when we told them about Dakota. Hop everything goes well for you!
