4 + 1 = 5!

Well, I know this post is a little late but I wanted to share some exciting news!  This family of FOUR…

untitled-1

will be a family of FIVE in October! 

 

We are very excited and were very surprised by this news!  Brandon and I had been praying since we had Emmie about whether or not to have a third baby.  I think we both had the desire in our hearts to have another child but the fear of the financial responsibility as well as just the daily grind of adding another tiny human was overwhelming.  In February I attended a women’s conference at my church and listened to a dynamic pastor, Lisa Bevere speak on being a lioness for our our family.  I have never felt this before, but I felt God speak to my heart in a way I cannot describe….I felt Him say, “Michelle, why are you so afraid?  I put this desire in your heart…quit running.”  I felt like I finally had my answer!  I couldn’t wait to share with Brandon. Well just a couple of days later I realized I had reason to take a pregnancy test…and BAM!  I was already pregnant.  So, I guess God must have giggled to himself.  We were very surprised and could not believe that an unplanned pregnancy could happen to us!  But I guess when it’s God’s plan, it’s going to happen one way or another right?

I am almost 20 weeks and feeling great!  I had about 16 weeks of intense sickness with this pregnancy…(just like Emmie Claire!)  But now I’m feeling much better.  We are 100% sure that this is our last pregnancy, so when I feel those sweet little kicks I am trying to savor the feeling.  We are due November 1st but since I will deliver 1 week early, I’m saying October! 

 

Oh, and one more thing…

we are waiting to find out the gender! 

It might make me crazy in the process but I think it will be super duper fun on the day of delivery!!!!
