I have the biggest smile on my face right now. One of those kinds that almost hurts your cheeks.
This goofy grin is all due to the fact that I get to share some pretty amazing news with you all...
First let me thank you for being a part of my blogging journey!
You all mean so much to me - and I'm so thankful for you.
Our little family is expanding! By two little feet!
John and I are overjoyed, over the moon excited, pinching ourselves everyday.
And praising God for this wonderful blessing.
I can't wait to see how this next chapter of our life unfolds, and I am so excited to learn so much from the blogging world too!
Thank you for your love, and for your prayers for our little peanut.... whose expected arrival date is Christmas Eve!
I'll leave you with a little love note (the first one) I wrote...and I hope to make these letters somewhat of a tradition ;)

we found out about you today :)
the 2 lines on the pregnancy test were the Lord's answer to so many of our prayers.
do you know how many prayers have been lifted up for you?
our worlds have turned upside down already- and we can't even believe it's true.
actually your daddy still doesn't believe it. he is worried about you.
i think when we actually see you on ultrasound in a few weeks, then he'll really believe. but i believe now.
God has given me this surreal faith, faith in Him, and faith in you. i couldn't believe my eyes, when i saw the lines;
i immediately ran out so i could surprise your daddy.
i got him the sweetest card and inside i taped the pregnancy test.
and a bible verse, james 1:17. "every good and perfect gift comes from above."
it's so true, little one. you are good, and you are perfect. and you come from Heaven. i will thank God every day for the rest of my life for giving you to us. for you are His.
i already feel guilty that you'll have your birthday during the Christmas season. but if you have to share a birthday with anyone, Jesus is a pretty good pick ;)
don't worry - you'll have your own big birthday party, completely separate from Christmas.
maybe it will even be a luau or Hawaiian themed. anything for you.
see there, already - you're wrapped around mommy's finger!
we love you. we love you. we love you. that's all we can muster right now. our prayer is that you are healthy, growing strong, and will stay put. don't you go anywhere!
my tummy is the warmest, coziest spot you could find. so get comfortable. put up your feet, (preferably as far away from my bladder as possible), and stay awhile.
we also pray that God not only knits you together perfectly in body, but is knitting you a heart for Him. a heart that will beat for Him and love Him just as He loves you.
oh and by the way, i feel amazing! no symptoms yet! so thanks for that, sweet pea.
love you, a bushel and a peck. and then a whole lot more.
