…………coming October 1st!!!!
We are beyond excited to be adding to the Everts’ crew and incredibly grateful to God and humbled by His faithfulness!! I know I have said this before, but never did I imagine this would be us. Five years ago I wouldn’t have believed we would be maxing out capacity in our minivan and have more than tripled the occupancy of our house.
I am thankful to have made it through the first trimester (officially 15 weeks!!) and to be feeling much better. Morning sickness hit with vengeance right at 6 weeks and was not just in the morning, but all day long with about every food aversion to go with it. I am excited to finally be able to enjoy the taste of coffee again.
Kolbe and Ethan basically knew since I was 5 weeks, since Grace told them I was getting shots and going for blood draws. They easily put two and two together, knowing that I only do that when I am pregnant. I neither confirmed nor denied until around 9 weeks. Upon finding out they exclaimed they were going to tell the entire school. They are very excited, just a little disappointed there aren’t twins.
Grace is positively convinced, absolutely certain, no telling her otherwise that the baby is a girl. She denies any love or affection she will give the baby if it happens to be a boy, although she dotes on Caden constantly.
Caden is still trying to figure everything out. Occasionally patting my stomach saying “ooh baby”, but also patting my behind saying the same thing. He will also touch his stomach and Grace’s and say “baby”. Eventually he will figure things out.
Along with sharing our news I am also thinking and praying for all of you women wanting and waiting. Don’t ever give up hope. God is at work in the silence and has not abandoned you in your pain and longing.
