Expecting baby surprise announcement.

My husband was going on a mission trip with our two older boys and due to not knowing whether we would miscarry or not, we wanted to wait until they got back from the trip to announce the news to our children. So, they flew in this past Thursday evening and we planned to share the news with them on Saturday.

Baby reveal for the kids-

So grateful to my sister and nieces for their help in making this surprise so sweet!

We told the kiddos we were going to do our fall pictures sooner this year (they were so confused, lol). So, when we got to the part we acted like it was a normal family photo shoot. We took a few family pictures and then the ladies set up all the kids sitting down and told the kiddos that mom and dad were going to kiss so they had to close their eyes. When they closed their eyes, we got out our board and held it together. When they opened their eyes, they all turned around to a huge surprise….

It was so sweet. None of them believed it. They were all so stunned and surprised!. Like completely shocked!

Sharing surprise baby annoucement to siblings.

Those of you that follow our blog, you have read in one of our previous posts (HERE) that I am having some health issues. We just ask that if any of you think of me, please keep this child and my health in your prayers.

We had a lot of complications during our pregnancy so our doctor advised us not to have any more children. We gave away all of our baby things and so this was a TOTAL surprise to us. At the end of the day, I truly believe God is the giver of life and He knows what is better for our family. Now that the shock has died down, we are so so excited to love on another human being. One that will make a difference in this world.

God has a special plan for this child of ours – no question.

Thank you all for being a part of this journey with us. We truly have the kindest friends and online family. XO XO…

Sign Adding Baby Six to the Mix.

And now let the name game begin. Since all of our children have Bible names, we will continue this tradition. 🙂 Looking for a cute Bible name for a boy and a girl! Any ideas?

I’m pretty sure we need a baby girl to even out the boys, don’t you all agree? Next doctor’s appointment we will get to find out the gender of this little surprise! <3

Are you #TeamGirl or #TeamBoy?

Adding baby six to the mix.

P.S. My sister came up with the idea for the sign. Since we have a cooking blog, the “mix” sounded so fitting. I love it. Thanks, Jess!
