Guess I should mention…

I have some news to share…

Our next little one is expected to arrive this spring and we are all over the moon. Feeling blessed.

Friends and family have know for some time now. But I have been having some struggles for the past few months (with my health – the pregnancy and baby are great), so I just have kept a bit quiet about it. But since the doctor has given me the OK to go to CHA, I thought it would be good to share here to avoid people wondering when they saw my new “enhanced belly size” in the next few days. :)

I am so very happy to welcome a new future stamper to this world very soon.

Hope you have a great day.

(Oh, and note to self: red striped shirts on a big belly = giant candy cane. Ha.)

  33. jaemom

    *Gasp* Congratulations!!! What thrilling news! Call me a freak or what not, but I remember random things, and I recalled reading somewhere (long ago) that you said you hoped to have another child when Colin was around this age, so the past several months it would pop into my head at weird moments and I would wonder if God had done His work. =) (Must be because my middle one is the same age as Colin that I notice?) I’m overjoyed for you! Glad to hear that you and baby are well. I pray that God’s grace would cover you and baby each day, and that you would be strengthened by His faithfulness! Blessings!

    Jennifer, I have followed your work for about 8 years now, and I just had to post to say congratulations. I know you dont know me, but with all your fab blogging, and contribution to papercrafting as I know and love it, you’ve inspired me almost daily. I now run a shop myself, and teach regularly, and I always talk about how amazing you are to my customers. I just wanted to pass on my best to you and your lovely family. Congratulations.
