Baby #9 is due to arrive in the middle of July!
We are all thrilled and excited for this new life that is being formed in secret at the moment. At the end of the month, we hope to find out the gender at our 20 weeks ultrasound.
The vote here is for a girl, but only God knows what precious gift He is sending us and His ways are perfect and He knows best.
The timing of this baby was very surreal… We found out on the weekend that my mother in law was very sick with cancer and it was also then that I bought a pregnancy test and it showed up positive right away. So we were facing death and new life all at the same time. This baby’s coming has been like a bright ray of sunshine during the difficult months that followed. God’s timing is always perfect. My mother in law’s birthday is also in July, but at the end, so this baby won’t share the same day, but will be in the same month. Our firstborn also has a birthday in July, so she is excited to have a sibling share her birthday month as well. Wow…. never dreamed that I’d be having a baby when my daughter turned 19! 😀
Pregnancy has been going well. Second trimester has been filled with more energy and hardly any sickness, so that is always wonderful.
A bit of an update from our life here on our “homestead”.
