Unexpected Blessings

I know I'm overdue for an update, but life has been crazy, so snippet will have to do.

On the morning of my birthday (October 29th) I received a very unexpected birthday surprise...a positive pregnancy test!!! Since I am still breastfeeding Kirk at least six times a day, it was definitely a surprise, but a happy one!

Since that discovery, I have been cooking up a storm so that my husband won't starve (or gain 50 pounds from eating fast food) when my morning sickness kicks in, and we've been rearranging the house to make it more conducive for three kids. Obviously we have 8 months or so to fix the house, but we wanted to sleep train Kirk so that he would be sleeping through the night by the time I started getting sick and we couldn't do that with he and Shiphrah sharing a room. So we moved him into the master bedroom and moved the master bedroom into our "new" divided living room. It's going to take some getting used to, but I'm grateful the house came with the option to section off the living room into an extra bedroom if we needed it.

The pregnancy was confirmed by a blood test at my doctor's office and I have my first OB appointment and sonogram on December 1st. My morning sickness kicked in on Friday and I'm praising God that it's not that bad yet. As long as I eat everything in sight (especially protein) every hour or so, I can ward off the worst of the nausea. :)

So that's what we've been up to! I promise I'll post a longer update when things settle down a bit.


  1. Congratulations again! That's awesome that your living room will section off like that. Now, you'll have a boys' room and a girls' room in your house. :) Praying that Kirk will start sleeping consistently for you before the morning sickness hits full force!

  2. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you! Keep us updated, I love reading mama/pregnancy blogs.

  3. wow! Congrats! So, I'd love to know how you sectioned off the living room! Sounds interesting. Hope you feel better than the last two through this pregnancy!

  4. Congrats!! I hope your sickness isn't too bad.
