Big Announcement

If you haven't already heard or seen the image on our sidebar, we are expecting baby #7 in mid January. We are thrilled at having a new little one join our family. The new one and Nathanael will have the largest gap in age that we have ever had. Nate will just be two when the new one arrives. The kids are excited as well. It just amazes us how welcoming they are to having more siblings. You would think selfishness would kick in, but not with them. They think the more the merrier. The kids are having a fight on what the baby will be. The girls want a girl and the boys want a boy. Leah is sure it is a girl and will argue her case to anyone who says otherwise or argues with her. It is pretty funny. We will find out (probably) what we are having at the beginning of September.

If you have just found out, please don't feel like you are the last to know. We just started telling people last week. I thought I would put the baby ticker up on the sidebar for a week to see who noticed. Then I would post this this week. This is a picture from our 12 week sonogram we had last week.

Woo hoo! Congratulations Sturhahn's! That's exciting news! I can't believe Nate will be 2 by then. It doesn't seem like he was born that long ago at all! We thought of you guys on the 4th of July and remembering that you were here with us last year to celebrate. When is your next visit? We miss ya!

Congratulations Steve and Marti! Good luck with a healthy baby and a good experience with the NHS! I thought the car was filled to the max! Can you get another seat or do you have to drive 2 cars now?

Congrats once again to you all - you folks are such a huge blessing and amazing parents so number 7 will be loved and blessed in sooooo many ways!

Time to get the Minibus organised? 13-seater Transit van? or are you just going to buy a second-hand London bus to make sure you've room for growth :)

I forgot to tell you Rylee's response when we told them, she said," so Aunt Marti really will be Aunt Marti and the 7 dwarfs!" How funny is that!
