Surprise Project....

Did I mention that I'm going to be 40 in a week? also I have grey hair, bifocals and had a hip replacement? Yes well, guess what?

I'm going to have a baby! Yes it's true, it's not a joke (although it may feel like one!!) I really am going to have a baby. Our big kids (15, 12) are surprised out that we are still 'doing it'!!! but they agree that a girl would be ok! Our little guy (6) doesn't know yet, he doesn't understand about time etc and it would be too far away for him to be a reality.

I can't believe how tired I feel (like an old lady) so my usual productive self is finding it hard to get anything done. Anyway it will be fun to have a baby in the house again. Lets just not think of those sleepless nights, pooey nappies and extra washing and think instead of the amazing miracle of another wee person in our family adding more colour and joy to us.

Well, many, many congratulations. What fun you're going to have - are you 'running a book' on whether it'll be a boy or a girl after three boys!

Heartfelt congratulations to you and your family! What a blessing this baby will be to all of you! I know, because 12 1/2 years after my first daughter was born, my son came came along as a belated 40th birthday present. And what do you think I got for my 42nd birthday? You guessed it, another girl! God certainly has a sense of humor and we still giggle at the thought of having all three of these wonderful people in our lives!

Surely you'll stitch up something special for this little one and share it with everyone here ? ;)
