IT'S A......

BABY!!!!

Did you all really think I would tell you what we were having?? SO NOT!

Actually, we didn't find out...on purpose. We want to be surprised and relish in God's perfect plan for our family.

And if you really want to know the truth....we couldn't have found out if we wanted to. The little Corn Nut was in such a position that we COULDN'T find out. Not that we would have, but the sonographer told us it just wasn't possible.

HA! How's that for God's sense of humor! I love it!

But I am happy to report that the Corn Nut is doing absolutely fabulous! All its little organs and measurements are right on and where they need to be. And his/her little heart is chugging along at a beautiful 150 bpm.


My due date was also changed by 4 days! Earlier! Woo-hoo! I'll take a few days anywhere I can get them! The "official" due date now is December 6th. With my habit of going a little early I bet I can pull off a November baby!

I wanted to cry when I saw his/her little profile with its little fist drawn up by the forehead. It just makes me SO thankful for God's blessings.

And before I cry again, here's a little something for your viewing pleasure.


Our little guy/girl was in such a precarious position it made it hard to get a straight on face shot, but I thought this one was precious. Our first look at our little one's sweet face.





















And sweet baby Hope's reaction to all of this? She pooped her pants.

hahaha, you guys make me laugh so hard! I am sooo VERY proud of you for joining those of us who will be surprised on the birth day. Enjoy, it's SO worth it... Even though Ann was quite annoyed not to know- ahah. Love you guys!

It is so much fun to be surprised on the birth day! It has always been a surprise for us, and what a blast it is!Blessings!

Thanks for commenting on my blog. We have more in common than you even know. I am the 4th of ten children and my mom didn't get turned on to homebirth (and all the stuff that tends to go with it) until she was in her 30's. I was her first homebirth, actually. And my youngest brother was born when she was 46 (he was rather a surprise).
Congratulations on your #6 - Glad everything looks good with your little corn nut :).

Love your husband's comment, btw :)

Yes, her husband's comment was witty and wry. She's so fortunate to have such a wonderful husband.

Okay... that was MEAN! :) But I can totally understand...ha!

Daniel's b-day is the 5th of Dec and Judah's is the 27th of November - it's a great time of year to have a b-day. Judah's falls on Thanksgiving this year. He's going to be upset next year when there isn't tons of food and cakes/pies on his special day :)

You are getting so CLOSE!

Yay for a healthy baby! That was so funny about Hope. Made me snort - lovely, huh!
