Baby number 7 is on his way!!!!
We’re all super excited! Hero was (very) momentarily speechless, and Awesome McAwesome jumped up and down clapping. Sweetheart Girl immediately said she wanted a boy, which surprised me! I haven’t really said anything specifically to Minion 1, Minion 2, or Twinkle because they don’t really understand :)
Finding out I’m pregnant while my husband is gone is something new, and I debated whether to wait till he returns to tell him. However, he’s with his family right now, and I thought it might be special for him to be able to tell them in person!
On top of that, my hubby said to spread the word! He doesn’t like to keep this kind of news a secret! Since I am not the ‘stand up and make a big announcement’ type, I figured the kids could do the job. And boy, did they!! On Sunday, McAwesome was meeting people at their cars to tell them that we’re gonna have a new baby!
And I love that the kids say We are going to have another baby! True, mom and dad are having another baby, but we are a family, and welcoming a new life is something we do together.
I’m right about 6 weeks along and feeling pretty good. Definitely a good bit more tired, but normally by now I’m completely wiped out and praying for a spurt of energy so I can show my other kids some attention! Considering I’m still without a husband for a few more days, I’m soooo thankful that I’m still feeling good!
