A Third Baby!

Yep, we are expecting another baby! I know a lot of people knew this was bound to happen soon and were just waiting for an announcement. No surprise there! The due date is the first week of August.

So come the middle of summer, the adults in the family will officially be outnumbered. I am used to being outnumbered when I am by myself during the week of course. But three will feel quite different probably. I think the only thing I am nervous about with having three is just getting them into the vehicle when I am on my own. But Calvin will be a little older (3 1/4) by then. So we will see how it works out.

A third child means we get to go minivan shopping! I am actually quite excited about this. How amazing will it be to have room to spare when we do our trips back to BC?! It also means we can buy things like furniture without having to wonder how we will get it home. Minivans are so useful!


To answer all your questions:
– I have been feeling great! Pregnancies treat me well, and I do not take that for granted. The most uncomfortable thing was the first trimester bloating that made me go out and buy some maternity pants while we were in BC. But I could also blame that on Christmas cookies.
– No, Calvin doesn’t really get it yet. He has a bunch of months to get there though.
– Yes, we are going to find out the gender. If it’s another boy, I will need those months to get my mind around that. It’s no secret I really want a girl. Boys are cool and all, but I want a little variety, you know? I need some floral onesies and jammies in my life! Plus, if it’s a girl, she will be like me, the first girl after two boys, and that’s pretty neat.

    I would be so excited for you to have a little girl, but I also know you will love whatever God has already decided for you! We, also, will love the little one. Congrats again :)
