By Way Of Announcement...

We have a bit of happy news to share...


 A sweet lil' babe is on the way!


And as you can clearly see, things are progressing rapidly.

I've waited and waited to share the news, partly due to the nausea that was made worse by getting near the computer and partly because the news felt like a dream. Welcoming another babe to our family is something my heart has secretly (and perhaps sometimes not so secretly) been wishing for. I believe every family has their very own "magic number" and it looks like for us, it's going to be six. Six! Even as this little one makes itself comfortable- kicking and poking around, it doesn't feel quite real. We're all over the moon happy and anxiously awaiting the time when he or she will join us in the yellow house. 

p.s. I'm nearly 20 weeks along now and yes, we will be finding out the gender. The children are making their predictions, what's yours? 

p.p.s While snapping these images last night Ryan joked that I had already waited so long, I might as well share the news with a picture of the babe when he/she arrives. Ha! That would have been a shock!

  1. This makes me so happy, Danyelle. Congratulations! I just had #4 in June and the question of the magic number has been on my mind a lot lately. I picture it being 5 or 6, but somedays I'm so overwhelmed with 4 I'm not quite sure that I'm made for it. You are amazing, and I'd love to hear your tips/perspective on raising a large family in a future post!

  5. Hooray! I'm so happy for you and your family.

  28. Oh, wow! Many congrats to you and the beautiful (and ever-expanding, it seems) family :3 I'm terrible at guessing, but my secret hope is for another girl, so you can even the score ;) Also, wouldn't it be nice to have another little E baby so Easton can have an initial-buddy? Haha, suffice it to say I've thought a bit about this! Again, congratulations, and I so cannot wait to hear more about your new babe.

  49. It's funny, I knew this was coming! I want it to be a girl, so you have an equal fun mix, but I think it might be a boy.

    I was just waiting for the announcement that you were, because for some creepy reason, I just knew. It's a weird thing I can do...just happen to predict when my favorite bloggers will have a babe.. I've been spot on for almost a year now.

    Hopefully i'm next!! Congrats!
