Shock & Awe

In case the title didn't give it away, this post is all about our plan journey to make Reid a big brother.  

It all started on October 1st {well, not really but this is when we'll start the story} when I set out to take a pregnancy test.  We had just begun the pregnancy endeavor, but somehow I knew it wouldn't take long this time around.  Lo and behold, not one but three pregnancy tests later, and it was, in fact, true....we're pregnant!

My sister, Jamye, was with us for a couple of days before flying out to San Diego, so she and Reid got to help me reveal the news to daddy when he arrived home from work that evening.

But little did we know, our pregnancy wouldn't be the only surprise in store for us. 

We went for our 1st ultrasound at approximately 6 weeks, and our sonographer was thrilled to be the first person to tell us - 

"You have TWO little ones in there!"

10 Weeks

 And yet another surprise at 16 weeks - TWO more precious boys to add to our family!

This is the card my sweet hubby brought home to me after we first found out we were having TWO.

There's no doubt in my mind that God's blessings come in all shapes & sizes - some in the form of adversity {and we just don't know it's a blessing yet} and others in very obvious form - a complete and wondrous miracle!  

Thank you, God, for blessing us, not necessarily how we expect or want to be blessed but how you see fit.  

Because it's your plan that really matters.

Congratulations!!! Your life is so full of blessings and miracles, hope you savor each and every one. Looks like mom is outnumbered, but I bet she'll be able to handle a house full of boys. Hugs and Kisses.

Just a quick question, is that Jeff's artwork on the card? If so, I'm impressed, he may have another career if he ever needs it. Good work Jeff. Hugs and Kisses.
