Dreaming of April



Around the 10th, Lord willing.  
I'm nine weeks today, though Eliana's been practicing her newborn-hold for almost as long...
I think she's ready.  Don't you agree?  ~smile~

Though our home is already bursting at the seams and my school-planning September's been slowed by some awful morning sickness, somehow food still comes to the table (though the kitchen be a mess), the laundry still gets done (thanks to Daddy), and a favorite puppy pal combined with twenty acres of river and woods out back has been a true blessing on these cooler days with stir-crazy kids.

What a beautiful life.
We give thanks.

REJOICING with you, my dear Elise! And even though I haven't commented in awhile, I have been reading and loving all your posts. I usually wait too long and then have an extra Elise-dose as I catch up on all your beautiful musings and your precious family. Eliana does indeed look ready-she will be wonderful. It's amazing the difference 3 years makes...Ella was helpful as she could be at 3 when Caleb was born, but when Luke was born, she was SUCH a little Mama. And I often don't want her to go anywhere b/c she's my go-to helper as I know Eliana will be for you. Will be praying for this new little one and for you. Much love.

Blessed news, friend! Congratulations! My littlest one is 13 weeks now and I feel so blessed. Blessings on these months of pregnancy and mothering. It's hard but it's precious.

Beka said...

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow! My heart is rejoicing with you... we were praying for this news! Our prayers for you will continue to ascend: may our good Father give you strength to deal with the sickness and tiredness, and may He continue to knit this little one together for His glory.
Lots of love to all of you!

Joy said...

Just so, so happy. :)
And that video of Eliana? Oh-so-sweet. (She is going to make a wonderfully nurturing big sister to this new little one!) And the boys? Stellar brothers! :)

Blessings and prayers to all of you,

What wonderful news! Congratulations!

Rebekah said...

Congratulations! I hope the morning sickness passes quickly for you....I know all too well how difficult it can be.
FYI, I have a Corban also (he's almost 9) and 4 girls - Marissa, Annika, Ellia, and Miranda. I think it's pretty neat that we have 2 kids with the same or similar names. :)

Ness said...

Congrats! I've had a "feeling" another blessing might be on the way. Pulling for pink for your daughter but we'll take a healthy blessing. Love and prayers, Ness.

Jenny said...
