SURPRISE!

That's right folks SURPRISE! We are expecting a baby. I found out the day before I was due to go to my OB/GYN to take care of that little matter. The night before I thought about it I realized that things were a little off. So, Adam being 3 1/2 hours away, convinced me to take the test at home rather than get a surprise the next day. I took took the test and nearly fainted. I went into shock and called Adam with the news. I cried the next day and made a few phone calls. We are blessed to have another little person added to our family. I love my two kids so much already that I know having another little one will just add to that! I appreciate everyone's love and well wishes they have meant so much to us.

Todd is very excited and wants a baby brother. He has decided the name already. Shark. Has a nice ring to it, don't you think?

Well, even if it wasn't um... planned... it sure is EXCITING!!! I really hope that you are feeling well, and not sick!

And you know, Shark is a tough enough name you could definitely get that tatooed on your arm someday... To show you are a proud mommy! LOL

Congrats!!!

Do you know for sure that it is a boy? When are you due?

Seriously you need to post more info... like the due date, when you found out, etc! That is exciting, even if it is a surprise! At least it's not a 14 month apart surprise. That's always fun. I hope you are feeling well and let me know if you need anything!

Wow! Congrats to all of you! That is so exciting!

Have I told you how we got pregnant with Spencer while we were unemployed and uninsured, and moving in with his parents? It was stressful at the time, but he's been such a blessing - and especially since we haven't been able to have more since then, I'm so glad it happened the way it did!

Can't wait to hear more, and to eventually meet Baby Shark! (:

Did I ever tell you that all of my kids were birth controll babies. You don't get to plan these things, and you can't stop them either.
