Addition to the Family!

Well, though most the world has already heard the news, I thought I would post some information about it.
We are expecting Baby #2! There is a lot of excitement in the house right now and also much anxious anticipation for what God's going to do until Bob Joe's arrival (that's just what we have been calling baby, until we know for sure and have an actual name picked out).
I have an appointment next Wednesday with a mid-wife for an exam and to get information. Until then my unofficial due date is June 19th-ish (that's right, Selah's 3rd birthday). It's nice for us to have babies in the summer since Bubba is home all summer. It was wonderful when I had the c-section with Selah for him to be home to help while I healed.
I am praing for things to go differently this time around, but am at a place where I am okay if I end up having another c-section, if it's God's will. This has been a 3 year process though, it did not come easily!
We would love to have a boy, but if it's a girl we have all the stuff and the clothes are the perfect size-season match. Bubba is really hoping it's a boy, though.
Selah is getting bits of the whole thing. She knows she is going to be a big sister, although I'm not sure she actually knows that means a baby will be living here with us. When we told her there was a baby in mommy's tummy, she asked if she could see it! I know, it's too cute! I think in time and as my belly grows she will understand more.
I already know how I want to paint and decorate the nursery, it's pretty uni-sex so it won't matter, but I saw it in a magazine and thought it was too cute!
Well, I added a due-date countdown to the blog page, so you can keep track of things, but rest assured that I will post often on baby updates, and how Selah is doing with the whole thing...Oh, be praying for our potty training. I would like her out of diapers by the time baby comes, yeah, I know!
Love you all...
