It's a Girl!

I know I say this every time, but man it's been a long time since I've been here. I'm averaging an every four month post...we'll see.

So...we're having a baby! We are just as shocked as you are, trust me. If you've been reading my blog or know me well, you know it's been a long almost 6 years of marriage for Mike and me when it comes to having babies.

If you don't know, here is a very short summary...we got married, started trying for babies, had trouble, lost one baby, found out we are both "infertile,"did fertility treatments that failed, decided to adopt/foster and that road had some bumps, and during all of this we went through a lot of heartache.

THEN we got pregnant and had one beautiful ornery little girl, decided we wouldn't prevent another pregnancy and let God take us on the next leg of our journey, and now 22 months later we are 20 weeks pregnant with another little girl!

If you didn't know we were pregnant, don't worry, it was not "public" yet. We found out in January and kept the secret awhile, we did tell some of our biggest supporters/prayer warriors. It's just about in the last month that it hasn't been a secret, although it wasn't something we went around announcing to everyone. With Macy we announced our pregnancy on social media when we found out her gender, so we decided to do it the same this time.

Of course I think we both went into our sono wanting a boy, we had a girl, now we could have a boy and do the boy thing. This pregnancy has been so different than the last one, so everyone was saying, oh it has to be a boy! When the tech said it's a girl...we were just as happy as if she would have said boy. Right away I started planning, If there has been one time I gave Mike permission to ignore me and nod as I blabbed on and on, this was it (we were at the doctors office for 2 more hours and I think I talked the whole time). I was planning her room, looking up names, talking about how Macy would be with a sister, talking about everything girl. Poor Mike I think he was just stunned, in a good way, and about the only thing he said was..."we'll have to pay for two weddings."

We are excited and praying daily for a healthy little girl to join our family in September.
