At Dad’s birthday party, we had a special time celebrating another year the Lord has given Dad.
As Dad opened his gift from Christopher and Anna Marie, he was surprised to find a rattle in it. Shock, awe, and excitement infused the room. Another baby on the way! We gave hugs to Christopher and Anna Marie and congratulated them. Ruthie and her newest sibling will likely be about a year apart — and we are thrilled.
They would appreciate prayers for Anna Marie and Baby during this time. Anna Marie has had reassuring bouts of morning (aka: you mamas know that it’s not confined to morning!) sickness, but she’s grateful for that. Joshua adores Ruthie, so I’m confident Baby #3 will be just as high on his “like” list.
Oh, announcing with a rattle is sort of a family tradition. Nathan and Melanie did it with Susannah’s news, and Christopher and Anna Marie have now done it for all three.
Sarah for the rest
“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD:
and the fruit of the womb is his reward.”
