I don't know what you're going to be doing on 07-08-09, but I'm going to be having a baby!
In reality, only about 5 percent of babies are born on their due date -- but my point is, I'm pregnant!
We're really excited about this development. The best part is that our baby will be in the same grade as Amanda's baby Brianna (ETA April 20), Carrie's baby Riley and Melissa's yet-to-be-named new baby boy (ETA April 13), all of whom live here in town. Lib, Maegan and Sallie are also expecting babies that will be in the same grade -- I love it! London and Dylan will be just enough older -- a year or two -- to teach all of our kids everything we don't want them to know.
I love knowing that this happened exactly when it was supposed to happen. As counterintuitive as it may sound, there's real freedom in not being able to micromanage every area of your life.
I also love knowing no one will ever bug us again about when we're going to procreate! Seriously. Many, many thanks to our families for not being those people.
Please pray with us for a healthy baby!
And don't worry, this is not going to become a blog focused on pregnancy and babies. Those usually bore me to tears. However, and I admit this may seem contradictory, I have started a separate baby blog. Let me know if you want the address.
P.S. With this announcement I'm checking off No. 27, "Have a baby in my belly."
