This is sort of a Nathan story. Nathan's best girls in Atlanta, B and T, are now big sisters. Their mom sent me a photo of the girls kissing baby A. I was showing the photo to Nathan, and told him, "Look, buddy, B and T are kissing their new baby sister." Nathan's reply was, "I want a baby sister too." You're going to eat those words someday, pal, hopefully in February (or late January at the earliest). We'll find out in another 7 weeks whether he's getting another brother or whether he's getting a sister. Yes, it's true... almost two months ago I had to look at my then-12-pound Micah and say, "How do you feel about being a big brother?" I'm 13 weeks and all looks good so far, but I'll deliver by c-section at 36 weeks due to a complication I had during delivery of Micah.
So for those of you who are doing the math, Micah will turn one year old on 1/5/09 and this baby will arrive before he hits 13 months old. Some of you know what we've gone through from an infertility perspective, and this should bring a smile to your face (if not full-blown laughter!) just to be reminded that God truly does have a sense of humor: our family has a surprise pregnancy!
