Mommy and Daddy shared some news with us...

Sometime next April...
We're going to have another baby in the house!!!

We're so excited :)! It came as a total surprise. I mean, who thinks "Mommy is sending Tori and I out to check the mail together. She must be expecting!"? Even IF their Daddy is standing on the porch with his camera?
Now, before you get any of the meaning of all this, I'll have to explain a few things. First: with both Abbi and Emmi, Mommy got a newborn sized sample diaper in the mail just a few weeks before she found out she was expecting. So, we've joked the past year that if we get a newborn diaper in the mail, we're all going to think we're going to have another baby in the house soon.
Next, don't think we didn't SEE Daddy outside taking pictures. We saw him all right, but we thought that he was taking pictures of the heron that was in the retention pond beside our house- he does that every time he sees the bird. So, it was a big surprise when we saw that diaper in the mailbox :).
We're all so happy! Andrew, who told Mommy when Emmi was on the way "I want an Abbi like an Andrew" (read: I want a baby like a boy) was talking about the baby to Emmi (who he loves to pieces!) today, and he says: "Mommy is having a baby. And maybe it will be a boy!!! But, if it isn't, that will be a LOT of sisters in this house!!!" Love his way of putting things :)!
"Lo, Children are a heritage of the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is his reward"

Wow, great news!! I'd love another sibling!!

Sorry, I guess I should introduce myself. :) I'm Joy, I found your blog a few days ago and have been reading through it. I like it :) I have an older brother and two little sisters. I blog at Joy Caroline: A 13-Year-Old Girl Living for Jesus. I just turned 13 a couple of days ago. :)

So anyway, I've really been enjoying your blog--I'm following it--and I'll be coming back! :) Feel free to check out mine!

Hey! I'm thrilled that you enjoy my blog! I enjoy writing on it, but it is nice to know that it is actually enjoyed by those that read it, too :). I looked at your blog, and I have liked what I've read so far! It looks like we have lot of things in common (some of which are: We both live in states without much snow (we're in South Carolina), we both don't enjoy math but are getting the hang of it, and I have a sister named Emilee and her middle name is Joy, among other things!). I turn fourteen today.
Blessings in Christ,
Bri

Happy birthday! Yes, I had noticed that we seemed to have a lot of things in common.

It's also nice to know that people are reading my blog and enjoying it!! I have three followers but other than that, I'm not sure who really reads it :) Thanks for responding!!

Thanks :)! Oh, and you may have noticed that I'm a bit big on the "camera in hand" thing,too, as you seem to be. I get it from my Daddy, who was a photographer for several years, and even now he has bought all the equipment so that he can do our family pictures and pictures for friends free of charge :).
Oh, your welcome :)! I know it is always nice when you know that your commenting was received and enjoyed!
Blessings,
Bri
