PREGGO! AGAIN-O!

One of the benefits of being WAY behind on blogging is that as I (retro-date and) write my blogs, it appears as though I'm sharing news long before I really shared it in real life (in real life very few people knew before mid-June)! Anyway after our kids fell asleep on the way home from the park, I realized that I also felt incredibly exhausted. Which got me thinking... and sent me to the store to purchase these...
Which confirmed my suspicions. Later that night (after our dinner guests had left). I broke the news to Fix. SURPRISE! ANOTHER BABY! The reason there are two sticks is because we were in a state of disbelief! But there is no mistaking the fact that I am pregnant. Due with baby number 3 on... Wait for it...
CHRISTMAS EVE!!!! I really did get over the 'surprise' (I put that in quotes because He who plans all our steps wasn't surprised at all!) quite quickly. But I'm still not over the due date. I have long said that NO ONE should have ANY babies during the ENTIRE month of December. It's just mean to the kid to have their special day so close to the special day of Christmas. So now I am sure that God is having quite a chuckle at me and my plans. But we really are quite thrilled at this news and can't wait for Rock and Louisa's new sibling (for now, s/he is known as Tre) to get here! We're just praying that s/he doesn't arrive on his/her due date.

Hey Rachel,
I was born 2 days before christmas (and was also a 'surprise'), and while it was sometimes tough while growing up because I didn't want to be overlooked, I love my birthday now. At some point in my childhood, my sisters or mom decorated a "birthday tree" for me. It was a tree/plant we had in the house, and they put my special christmas ornaments on it. My birthday gifts were put under the birthday tree from there on out, every year. My family worked hard to separate my birthday from christmas to help me to feel special, and like I said, I love my birthday. I am almost always with family, which makes it even better! Congratulations on your little 'surprise'!
