SURPRISE!!!

For those of you who have not yet heard the good news, the Lord has decided to surprise our family with another baby! Yep...we're expecting...again! We really thought we were good with one boy and one girl, but the Lord in His infinite wisdom knows that we need another one...so, here we go again! I had my first doctor's visit today and will be posting the Ultra Sound pics tomorrow (Daniel asked me to wait because he wants to help you decipher the different parts of the baby--but it's beddy-bye for them now!)
Hannah said something on the way home that just cracked us up! I told Brent, "That's one for the blog!" It went something like this: (btw, the kids are so excited about having a baby at our house...as long as it's a boy--says Daniel...or as long as it's a sister--so says Hannah!) So Brent and I were asking if they thought it would be a girl or boy which started a whole conversation about which would be better. I interupted the conversation to make sure they understood that it was God who decided the gender, and to remind them that God never makes mistakes and He would give us what was best. I had just gotten out, "God will give us what is best..." when Hannah piped up, "Probably a girl!" "Girl power" starts young nowadays!!!

And no...it's not twins! We had an ultra sound today to help clarify my due date...I'm right around 11 weeks along...due the first part of February--and there's only one! Phew!!!

Well let me be the first in blog fashion to say congratulations. You have a great perspective in allowing God to be sovereign in all situations, even babies. What a wonderful lesson for both of your kids.

Congratulations!! We like big families!! The collar bone's mended but there's still some weakness. Thank you for your prayers. I wish I could get up there but Grandpa isn't willing to travel and I can't leave him at this point. God bless you all.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my word!!!! And yes, that was our first reaction, Mrs. G!!!! We are soooo happy for you all! If you need a babysitter we are still around! :) Just about a six hour drive, that's all...we might have to spend the night occasionally just to save on gas but we could work it out. :)

Wow. Esther and I were literally screaming because we are so happy for you all!! We look forward to hearing more about everything this coming weekend! Love you all!

Congratulations! I must admit to a little bit of wide-eyed "wow" when I read this news, but at the same time I wasn't too surprised...I haven't yet heard you sound utterly convincing when you said "no more"!!! :-) We will be praying for all to go well and for the next several months to go by quickly for you...I know how much you enjoy waiting for anything!

Love, Marsel

That is so awesome! I am so excited for you guys. I just blog-surfed around to several Norway families and really started missing my home church. I can't wait to see you guys at the end of August! Wow and congratulations!
