The Next Chapter

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  It's the least commercial of all of the major holidays, and it seems like everyone is always talking about how blessed they were and being optimistic.  I just love it!  (Plus, the food is good!)

Soooooooo, with all of our issues this time around, it seems quite fitting that God would choose for our second child to be born right around/on Thanksgiving!!  We're going to have even more for which to be thankful this year.  :)

Do you see the "diamond ring?"  The baby is the diamond, about the size of a blueberry. 

So there you have it...the news that I have been bursting to tell!  Besides having the normal tiredness, I'm feeling really good.  I was vehemently sick for many weeks with Caleb and was not really pleasant to be around.  I'm sorry to say that my attitude was rather negative.  This time, I was determined to be thankful for everything this pregnancy threw me (remind me of that!!!), and I'm not feeling too bad!  It's totally different from when I had Caleb and for that I am THANKFUL!!!  :)

oh my goodness! Congrats!! When I saw you last I thought about your prayers and struggles with pregnancy #2, as told by your blog- so happy to hear that a new little one is on the way. We'll be praying.
