An Exciting Announcement!

We are overjoyed to share that God has answered our prayers by sending us another sweet baby due this October! 
am filled with so much gratitude, but it honestly doesn't seem real yet! I can't believe I'm already almost halfway through this pregnancy! It's starting to sink in more and more every time we hear the heartbeat at the check ups, and especially as I start to feel his fluttering movements grow a little stronger each day.  That's right - his movements! We are having another sweet, energetic boy to keep us on our toes! 
We are so thankful for the gift of another son!  What a blessing it will be for these two to grow up so close in age.  My prayer is for them to develop a close relationship with one another and to become faithful Christians in whatever vocation God calls them to do. 

The gift of a growing family is something we certainly do not take for granted after experiencing such a difficult loss.  I am so much more appreciative of every bit of this pregnancy, and I'm in awe that God has entrusted us with another soul to raise.  This, combined with how much joy Oliver has brought to our lives, has made us even more eager to meet this new little one and to watch our two sons begin to bond this fall! 

"Certainly sons are a gift from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb, a reward."
- Psalm 127:3
