UPDATE: Last evening we lost our precious little baby.
We are doing well.
We know that God is in control and we trust in His perfect plan.
We choose to trust Him because He has never let us down. We choose to love Him because He has shown us a love so divine. We choose to rejoice because His way is perfect. We choose to praise Him because He is oh so worthy of our praise.
Awhile back a funny thing happened in our family. I was shopping in town when I got a text from my little sister saying, "Congratulations on baby #14! At least I am pretty sure that is what "14" is all about. You are sure confusing Mom and Dad."
Well let me tell you that I was as confused as they were!!!!! Why was she congratulating me? I was not expecting #14.....where were they getting their info? So I told my sister that I was confused too! To which she replied that I should talk to my daughter's about their text to my mom.
Well to make a long story short.....I had asked Kerri what coverall size Caleb had grown out of. She texted me "14"....or she thought she had. But in fact she had texted my mom instead!!! And my mom and sister automatically thought we were expecting baby #14!! After I figured this all out I was almost rolling on the store floor laughing!!!!
So because we wanted to see if everyone would automatically think that the #14 was directly related to us expecting again....we put 14 as our facebook status....just to see if other people would think the same!!! A little nasty....I know :( But it didn't take us long to realize that many, many people related the #14 to us expecting again. We didn't let the joke go on too long before we explained that this was just the coverall size that Caleb had grown out of!!!!! Because our friends are such good sports....they laughed along with us :)
Well a little while we texted the #14 to my mom....and put our Facebook status as #14. But this time it was for real!!! Yes, we are excited to announce that, Lord willing, in March, we will be welcoming child #14 to our family! I feel honored and humbled that God would give this special little gift to our family.
Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord:
and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man;
so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
they shall not be ashamed,
but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
