The Cat's Out of the Bag

We are thrilled and blessed to be expecting baby number five! I can't believe that by next summer we will be a family of seven - it sounds like a lucky number to me! I'd been having some health issues, so it was a bit of a surprise to find out that #5 was on it's way 1.5 weeks ago. I couldn't be more excited about it though, and the kids are ecstatic too. We are looking tentatively at a due date of May 25th - our first ultrasound to either confirm or adjust the date is set for Halloween. It seems SO far away, and it's hard to be patient. I just want to see a picture of that cutest of cute little bean. Ian wants another boy so that the boys "win" and the girls want a baby sister so that they can share a room (that'd get old REALLY quick, I bet). There's nothing like the start of a new life to make you feel so spiritually connected with the world and your family.

All Dad and I can say is Wonderful!! There is always room for another grandbaby. Dad will say that the Christmas club will never be big enough now though, his joke! Congrats, we can't wait!
