250th post ... and a secret!!!

Good morning, blogosphere!!!! This is my 250th post!! I can't believe it!! I love blogging so much, and having ... you know ... like 4 people read what I write. One is my mom. I'm ok with that, because she's supa-cool!!

In other news, we'll be painting Evie's room this week before we leave for the convention. A very pretty yellow color, since I know you were super curious. Now you know.

Oh, what? Stop rambling and tell the secret? Well, I guess since I'm telling you, it's not so much a secret, as a surprise. Ok, here goes:


That would be a picture of a pregnancy test. See the faint vertical line in the first little window? That means the test is positive. Soooo ...

I'M GONNA HAVE A BABY!!!!!

I'm due on Feb 10. John and I are really, really excited. Well, I'm really, really excited, and John is excited. He's a guy. It's not really 'real' to him yet. (It never gets 'real' to him until we're asleep, and my giant belly is resting against him, and the baby kicks so hard that he wakes up. That's when it's real.)

I love how well that man knows me. When I told him, his face lit up, and he gave me a huge, and we talked for a minute or two, and then he asked me, 'So, who else knows?' He's good. My answer? 'Well, only Kristie, because I needed help deciphering the test.' He said, 'So only one person besides me? And you've known for 4 hours? I'm impressed!'

In the past, John has been lucky if he's in the top five people to hear. :) I'm basically the worst secret-keeper in the history of the world. I'm good with others' secrets, I mean, just not my own.

So if you would be praying for me, and the baby, that we would both be healthy, and that this pregnancy would be easy and with mo problems that'd be wonderful. Yes, we're planning on doing another homebirth. :)

Have a lovely day!! My stomach is turning, so I'm going to lay down for a bit, before working in the garden this afternoon.

My children and I will pray for you and your family. ( I like to have them pray with me for pregnant ladies. I think it is a good lesson for my girls and boys.)

God Bless,

Susana

Home and birth- love to hear those words together- found your blog through reading your encouragement on homeschool hacks- your words really made my future school year seem less stressful -i was trying to figure out how to start and while trying to plan for a decent curriculum, i read some of your hacks and realized that it doesn't have to be stressful or really even planned out. I also have the C Mason book on hold to check out @ that library. Thanks for the cool info and for making it so "light"
any more book lists or resources that helped you, please hit me @ ssealing@cfaith.com
Shine On!!
