Happy News!!

Our kind and gracious God is, once again, blessing us with another child! Its true... I'm pregnant!! Life has been very exciting around here; the kids are both thrilled. Ethan's response was very cute -- he dropped everything, ran across the room and threw his arms around my neck and then said "Its because I prayed to Jesus about it -- I knew He would give me a baby!" Rachel obviously doesn't fully understand but she knows there's a baby in my tummy and often comes over and gives cute, gentle pats or little kisses. I'm sure it will start to really click when I'm showing. :)

Thank you to all of you who have already said you've been praying for our little one and for me as well. We really appreciate it! I've been blessed with very good pregnancies so far, but we don't want to be presumptuous, so we covet your prayers during the pregnancy.

So there's our news. Pictures and updates to follow in the coming months! -Stef... for all of us.

So you had the official first check and saw the little bean? How exciting! You and baby are in our prayers--we look forward to Oct when we can meet the new Arnold! :-)

Nope. We don't got until I'm 12 weeks. We finished telling our families and I'm starting to show, so keeping it a secret seemed kind of pointless. I guess that only works with the first two. :)

I go for my first appointment in March.
