At the beginning of the new year our church did a 21 day fast.
You were suppose to give something that obligated a lot of your time up and pray for your future.
I gave up all social media and prayed what was the next step for our family.
What I mean, is I felt satisfied with just Addison, Brent and I.
I have always said I wanted a large family of 3-4 kids but just felt like my life was complete. I prayed God would reassure that feeling and if not show us when was the right time to have a baby.
Well about 15 day into the fast my prayers changed drastically!
I didn't feel just right so I took a pregnancy test and...
WE WERE PREGNANT!
Poor Brent got a phone call of me crying and saying I am just not ready.
He reassured me that everything was going to be ok and we could talk more when he got home from work! ha
I had to remind myself of what I had prayed about and fasted over the past weeks. God answered my prayer.. in a way I never thought but he answered it. He reassured me that Addison was not going to be our only child and that THIS was the right time to have a baby.
I would be lying if I said I'm not scared, nervous, and anxious about having 2 children but I can tell you that we are excited and over joyed that God chose us to be this new babies parents!
I have clung to the verse " Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understandings, In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path! Proverbs 3:4-5"
Even though its scary to think I will be a mom of 2 only 24 years old and been married for 2 years but I am putting all trust in God that he knows the perfect plan for our little family!
We waited until I was about 6 weeks to tell Addison and our parents.
I wanted to do something fun so I had a shirt made that said BIG SIS and got her a book and wrapped it up.
She was so excited to open it...
( we are really in to unwrapping things right now ha)
After she unwrapped it she told us this is not what she wanted haha!
But then when we explained she was excited! :)
We went over to tell my parents that night..
and they were Super Surprised!
The next day we went to Brent parents ( where I forgot to get pictures with them and great Grandparents)
We are excited everyone is so excited for us!
This pregnancy I have been so sick and pretty miserable.
Today, we went to the doctor for our 10-11 week appointment and this sweet picture reminded me that it is ALL worth it!
Addison calls Baby P her baby sister and told me she was so cute and HUGE! ha
So we will see in a few months if its a sweet girl or a sweet boy??
We are praying for a healthy baby! :)
