::was this planned?::

that is the question most asked when i tell the exciting news.

{baby number 3 is on the way!}

so in response....YES this was planned. we have always wanted a big family. so we actually plan to have...wait for it... four children.

i  dream of the sound of little ones running through the house playing and squeeling with delight.

i dream of bunk beds in each room.

i dream of family vacations in our mini van- yes the one i vowed i would never own- packed to the brim with children and luggage.

i dream of them playing sports and cheering for one another.

i dream of family movie nights with a child under every arm.

i dream of setting the table for six.  stretching meals and budgets.

i dream of cooking for them and with them.

i dream of them being close.

i dream of them one day growing up and having families of their own to bring home for visits.

i dream....

so yes this was planned.
yes we are thrilled.
and yes we are blessed beyond measure!
