7 Quick Takes Friday - The BIG NEWS Edition

I'm joining Jen for 7 Quick Takes because ya'll, I have news! BIG NEWS

1.


2. Yep.  That's right.  At the ripe old age of 44.  Can you believe it?

3.  Well, neither could we but the reality has finally set in and after the shock wore off, there was nothing but excitement (and, well, truth be told, a little fear!).  This is truly an unexpected blessing.

4. Expected arrival?  April 15th!

5.  I would appreciate your prayers.  Thanks to my advanced age and the fact that I was taking some medication for my Multiple Sclerosis (which I obviously have stopped taking now) we are a little worried about health issues for this little one.

6.  And even though I'm typically long-winded and my normal 7 Quick Takes are 8 or 9 Really Long Takes, that's all I've got for you this morning!

OH MY GOSH!!!!! YAY!!!! What exciting and happy news!!
It's my favorite kind of news to hear. :)

See? This is what I get when I try to be a better homemaker and concentrate on the house instead of the blogs -- I miss the most awesome news!!

That was an awesome reaction from the kids and I hope you are feeling well. I'll add you to my Rosary intentions today!

YAY!

Oh my gosh that was so cute. I came over from MArtin Family Moments. My kids want another baby so much and it just hasn't been working out. But I love the idea of video taping the reaction... if that day ever comes. Prayers for the MS and the pregnancy.
