6 years and 2 1/2 babies later

Well Daniel and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary today (well we celebrated yesterday but it was today)! I can't believe we have been married 6 years already. It is crazy how fast time goes. We were talking last night about what we will do on our 10 year anniversary because it will be here before we know it. The last 6 years have had their ups and downs but it has been a wonderful ride. I look forward to what God has in store for the next 5, 10, 20 30+ years ahead. I am sure it is more than we can imagine!

As the title states we are also working on growing baby #3! We are 18 weeks pregnant! We find out tomorrow if we will be raising 3 precious boys or adding some pink/purple to our family! Thinking about being a family of 5 is kind of like..whoa what are we thinking? Our two boys are overwhelming enough sometimes and keep us busy all the time. Soon we will definitely be outnumbered! As most of you know I have always wanted to raise a big family and I could honestly say I would probably want more children. But overall I firmly believe every child is a gift from God but I believe that more for this baby than anything else (I need to post the story behind this feeling soon). For various reasons, it was very hard for Daniel and I to decide to have a third child. But after lots of praying on our end, God basically said this decision is not up to you, and here we are 18 1/2 weeks later! We are a family of 5 already in more ways than one. Our boys (especially Teagan) kiss the baby daily and pray for "mommy's baby" nightly! It is so amazing to see God working through them to be gentle and caring to the baby already. Let's just see if that caring and compassion continues once this little bundle of JOY arrives ;)
