One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Big News Again...

Notice anything new about my blog page??

Yup -- big news in my post today -- Travis and I are expecting another baby! My estimated due date is April 16th. (two days after Kara's due date!!)

I have to admit it came as a little bit of a surprise... but a welcome one :) I knew that I could be breastfeeding and get pregnant -- but I didn't know it could happen so easily!! My doctor had to use a couple of ultrasounds to pick the due date because of my breastfeeding/lack of periods/late ovulation.

Funny story -- the day Kara called me to tell me that she had a positive pregnancy test, I had taken a test earlier that day or the day before because I was feeling a bit "off". But my first test came back negative. A few days later, I was still feeling weird, so I tested again -- sure enough I saw two faint lines. I was in such disbelief that I had to run to the store to buy another brand of test to confirm the results!

I was a little nervous at first -- how will we be able to handle a 16 month old and a newborn? Are we ready for another one? But Travis was his typical calm self -- and he was thrilled with the news. Seeing his response immediately made me realize what a true blessing this is. God has a plan for everyone -- and this is his plan for me :)

Yay -- we are having a baby -- Evelyn is going to be a big sister!!!
