Brooke's prayer

A couple of weeks ago Brooke came up to me and asked if she could have a baby sister.
I told her it wasn't up to me and she should ask God.
Excitingly she exclaimed, "OK!!!"
"Dear God,
May I Please have a baby sister?
(pause)
Yes?
(jumping up and down screaming)
OK! MOMMY! GOD SAID YES!!!"
I burst out laughing and forgot about the prayer....
Until 
the day came and I realized that God answered her prayer.
Sort of.
God has blessed us with baby #3 due sometime this summer!!!
I have an appointment next week to find out exact due date... I will update when I find out more.
Praise God for blessing us with another little miracle!
Maybe I should mention one more prayer Brooke had.
I am a little scared to because she prayed for
 a brother AND a sister.

I've meant to tell you before this, but thanks so much for your comments on my blog. I love reading them and they encourage my heart all the time.

I'll be praying for extra energy, patience, and grace for the next.... well, I guess forever :-) for you with another one on the way!

Love you!

Thank you SO MUCH for surprising me by showing up at my front door today to tell me the news in person. I am SO happy for the growing family.

Ivan always tells me and every one else that he is getting a brother and sister! Has said that from the beginning. SO far I think it has just been talk because as far as we know there is only one. But I guess there could be a surprise.
