Family of Four

That's what we are! We confirmed the news on Mother's Day (the day before Iain's eight-month birthday) - we have another little one on the way! (What a Mother's Day gift!) We are thrilled and thankful for this new life. As best as we can figure, the baby is due around the first week of January, making him/her a winter baby. :) Please pray with us for this little one as he/she grows (especially that this one would be a great sleeper!).

Speaking of sleep, in a huge answer to prayer, Iain suddenly began sleeping almost through the night last Tuesday! He now usually needs help getting his pacifier once or twice a night, but no more nursing, no more bouncing, no more rocking. He just decided he'd had enough. This has been perfect timing, as we found out about the new little one not a week later and I sure need the extra sleep.

So join us in thanksgiving for these two miracles! :)

congrats!

That's wonderful news! Congrats!

You may find it comforting that after Jaan, I prayed constantly for a baby who would sleep. God certainly answered! I can't tell you how many times I just stood and watched in awe, while Raia fell asleep on her own (and stayed asleep). Sometimes I still can't quite figure out what's going on when she goes and puts herself to bed. :-) Oh, and Jaan started sleeping well about the time that she was born.

Again, CONGRATULATIONS!

YAHOO!!! I'm so incredibly excited for you guys! I have an idea- you and Iain can come visit this summer and I'll watch he and Caiden, and you can take a nap! =) YEAH!!! Welcome sweet little one- we can't wait to meet you!

Congratulations to the increasing Brannon family. Blessings to you all as you make the transition to "man-to-man" defense.

Woo Hoo! Congratulations! Your two peeps will be just as far apart as my first two peeps, and after the initial adjustments, we couldn't have been happier with the results of (as Nan's friend Mrs. Ryan put it)'twins of unequal size'! And do you know, Micah's was the easiest pregnancy! The morning sickness was not as pronounced, and disappeared right at the end of the first trimester...I kid you not! Praying all good things for you and family...

Mrs said...

Ok, I don't want to turn into Phyllis's Babushki or anything, but I've been thinking of you today! I hope you're drinking LOTS of fluids. . .nursing AND pregnant! Would you like me to pick you up a special water bottle/glass or anything to remind you? :-D

Brad said...

Is it ethical to give a baby Tylenol PM?

Shannon said...

How's the morning sickness this time?

Kristen said...

Yay! Congrats! Hope y'all have a great Memorial Day.
