another acorn is growing on our family tree!

Most people already know this (and it's beginning to be pretty obvious, anyway!), but Baby Jones #3 is on the way!  I'm 16 weeks (well, I will be tomorrow), and feeling good!  The girls have started to notice my belly changing, and Macie thinks it's hysterical.  She came into my room friday while I was getting dressed after my shower and could not stop giggling. 

This one came as a surprise to us, which was a new experience for us....after all of our struggles (PCOS, infertility, miscarriages) a surprise pregnancy has never been on our radar.  We had even gotten to the point of having the "we're done" conversation.  The girls are at awesome ages (as they fuss in the playroom, ha!) and the stress of "trying" for us tends to be consuming and exhausting.  God, however, had a different plan for our family, and we couldn't be happier about it!

We're still adjusting, and I'm not sure the reality of a third baby actually joining our family has completely sunk in yet, but it's coming either way!  We have our "big" ultrasound in a few weeks, and I have a feeling it will be more real for us then, and then the name picking and baby planning can begin!!

So excited for you and your beautiful family! Maybe you'll have a boy this time, which will be a fun new experience, but if it is another girl they will be the best of friends! (I am kind of fond of 3 girls since I was the youngest of 3 girls in our family and have 3 girls of my own.) No matter boy or girl, he/she will be the perfect addition to your family!
