SURPRISE!

As some of you may already know, we made a little.. well okay BIG announcement over the weekend! We are adding a sixth member to our family in September!!!


Yes, I may have cried a little.. okay alot.. when that pregnancy test read positive and I may have cried even harder when my doctor confirmed it!

I'm still in shock and slowly accepting it. We had a 5-10 year plan and had paid $800 to have that plan inserted (IUD) lol. But apparently I fit in to that .2% category of the IUD not working.

God had different plans for us, I suppose ;) That's the only comfort I have and I am thankful I have it otherwise I would probably be a wreck right now.

Now don't get me wrong, we are excited, and I did think maybe in 4 years we'd see about adding a 4th child to our home but my babies aren't even a year old yet and we are going to be having another baby in diapers! I thought it was hard getting out with 3 kids, I can't imagine what it's going to be like with 4!

We've already realized we are going to have to get a bigger car, the one we have wont hold us all. We are going to have to look into a bigger house, we are definitely going to out grow the one we are currently in. There are just going to have to be alot of changes, and we are freaking out just a little bit.

But as I said, the only comfort is knowing this little baby had to of been meant to be and Heavenly Father sent him/her down to us which makes me excited to see how this little person is going to bless our lives because each of our kids certainly have so far and I wouldn't have it any other way.


So here's to a crazy 2013!

Oh Marissa, you totally have a right to be on the stressed out side! You're so positive about it, and you're right! That little baby MUST be meant to be in your family and Heavenly Father WILL make everything work out for you guys!! If anyone can do it, it's you!!!! You're a great Mama and you're going to rock this new adventure!!
