We made the big announcement over on Facebook last week – and now you all know too!
I have to take a big deep breath as I post this. Most of you know that we suffered a miscarriage just a week after announcing that we were expecting back in November. We thought we had waited past the ‘danger zone’ of 12 weeks before telling everyone how excited we were, but nothing’s ever guaranteed. It was both a blessing, and also so hard to have to share that news with literally almost everyone we knew.
So it is with a very cautious heart that we are letting you all know that for the last 5 months or so we’ve held onto a big secret. We are expecting a baby GIRL in September! At almost 22 weeks along, everything seems to be going so well. Baby’s heart beat is going strong, everything is measuring right where it’s supposed to be, and I’m feeling wonderful. Evan and Hailey could not be more thrilled that they’ll be snuggling a new baby sister this fall!
PS – it’s sooo strange for everyone to know now when we’ve kept it a secret for so long!
