What a Surprise!

Good morning. It's been a few days since I last posted, and here's why:

Saturday morning, I woke up feeling so tired and dizzy. So I spent most of the day lounging on the couch with my 2 kids, in between bouts of housework. On Sunday, I took them to town so they could spend the day with Grandma and Grandpa. Because I was having a workshop that afternoon, I decided I would stop and pick up a few snacks. I also decided that I would pick up a test just to be certain that what I was starting to think might be, actually was (or wasn't).

By now...you've probably figured it out. Yup; we're pregnant. I'm not sure of my exact due date yet, but it should be somewhere around the end of April.

Sunday afternoon, hubby comes home and I tell him the news. He says, "What?!" And about 3 hours later, he comes up to me and says "Okay, this is when you tell me it was all a joke, right?" Haha...no. He thinks that Jack will be okay with it, but we're not really sure how Izzy will handle it. She's used to being the princess.

Yesterday, we told our parents and they are all pretty excited about it. It still hasn't fully sunk in for us, I think.

So I went up to Jack, this morning, and said "Would you like a new little brother or sister?" After pausing to look at me and then at Izzy, he says "No. Izzy's fine." LOL

I then told Izzy that Mama was going to have a baby, and she looked around her room and said "Where is it?" I told her in my belly. She touched my chest and said "No, it's not. Open your mouth....it's not in there, either." LOL She's just 3.

I have to say that I was quite surprised by both of their reactions, but in a funny way. Guess when I start showing, maybe it will make more sense.

I really had begun to think our life was just right as a family of 4, but I guess God has a bigger plan for all of us.

Have a happy day!
