15 December, 2011

twas the month of december,

and from the first day,
we've been decked out for Christmas,
in all the best ways.

our stockings are hung,
not three but four,
cause this little family's
expecting one more!

our baby is coming
in the middle of may,
and i'm jiggling like jelly
with one on the way!

gage is excited,
a little confused,
daddy's eyes are alighted,
he's just so amused.

i can't wait to hold
another little child,
it feels like we've waited so long,
this short while.

we're grateful for prayers,
for mercy and grace,
for candy canes,
and gage's cute face.

thanks for the comments
and all of the love,
for phone calls and letters,
we can't get enough!

okay, i'll stop composing now and just say it straight up:

we are expecting a baby! we are eternally grateful for every kind thought and prayer said in our behalf. thank you for your support - those we know by name and face, and those we only know over the internet.

to my dear friends who are struggling with infertility/miscarriage, please know that it's our hope and prayer that you will not have to endure long.

we are so happy. we've known since august and it's been an incredibly healthy pregnancy so far. we'll be finding out what the sex is on january 5th!

thanks again for all of the support and love!
