It's a . . .

In case you can't tell from the blue onesie Jayci is proudly holding up, our next little one is going to be a boy!!! We are all completely thrilled, including Jayci - although she might be a little confused by the whole thing and keeps calling him "brother sister" . . . we're working on it though.
Isn't she going to be the cutest big sister ever? 

Oh and did you want to hear the story about why we thought it was a boy?

While we were house-sitting, Adam went over to introduce himself and explain that we were watching the house for a few weeks to one of the neighbors, on one of the first days we were there (meaning, I was NOT really showing yet at all). The neighbor said: "oh yes, you and your wife and your son." Adam corrected him and pointed out that Jayci was, in fact, a daughter. The man replied that he knew that, but he was talking about his son on the way. Adam asked if he had noticed I was pregnant, and he replied: "No sir, I just sit out here and talk to God all day and He told me to tell you that you are having a son." 

Cool right? We love thinking about all the ways that God is already working in our little boy's life, and we have no doubt that he is going to be a blessing in so many ways to so many people.

For you created my inmost being;
   you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
   your works are wonderful,
   I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
   when I was made in the secret place,
   when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
   all the days ordained for me were written in your book
   before one of them came to be. 

Psalm 139


  1. Well OK then... I now officially have chills. THat is SO cool. I will have to tell you sometime about the man who prayed over Adam when he was in K5 and who prophesied over him. It was awesome and wonderful and TRUE. God still speaks through people.. I believe that.
