Hayleigh Is Going to be a Big Sister!!!!!!!

YES, it is true! We are pregnant for the 5th and FINAL time. 7 is the number of completeness so we have decided to follow in God's example and rest on the 7th member of our family! (ok it is a stretch, but God did rest on the 7th day!) We confirmed our suspicions 2 nights ago and we estimate a due date around August. Please pray as we have been here before and had a miscarriage.

We always said since we were married that we would have 5 kids. We also prayed that if God was to bless us with another child that around the 2 yr mark of Haleigh's birth would be the best time. We saw it as the now or never point. We are excited for Hayleigh as she will have a playmate. Finally, YES, everyone is pulling for the boy on this one. We prayed to God well before this baby to have a son. Bottom line is a healthy pregnancy, delivery and kid is all we truly ask. Keep praying please.

HAYLEIGH UPDATE (after all it is a sight all about her)

She is crawling alot now. Still no front teeth. She can go from a lying position to sitting or from sitting to standing up with the aid of furniture. Love to spit at you when you try to talk to her (need to stop that soon!). Waves more and can give u a high five! Healthwise she is really doing well. We are loving loving her to pieces as was Doctor Grifka's last instructions.

Hope all of you enjoyed too much good food as we all did!

Until next time...
