So here is the interesting part of my life…

We are going to have a baby! We have been waiting all year long so that we would have a Sept07 baby. However, we got a bit carried away in our excitement to add on to the family so it turns out we will be having an August07 baby instead.

Having a large family, we have found that friends and strangers like to make stupid comments about our family size. People have wondered if we have figured out what keeps causing us to have more kids (yes, we have, and we enjoy it very much!). People like to let us know we have a big family (really? I hadn’t noticed). Sometimes people even wonder if it was an accident. Are babies ever an accident?

This is my fourth baby. There will be a total of six kids though, because I also raise my two step kids as my own. This will be our last baby. We are very excited!

I know exactly what you mean. When people found out I was pregnant with Emily, most of the comments were negative. Here I was pregnant, not knowing how things were going to work out, and all I got were negative comments. I had even waited several months before I told people because of wanting to avoid these comments as long as possible. So CONGRATULATIONS and I can't wait to help your family welcome another new addition.
We love you guys.

I like the shirt idea as a walking billboard!!!!

And (for Amy) I remember when Tony told me about the expectation of "Emily Rose" I was so happy for you. He told me that alot of other people were going to be critical. That pisses me off.

God has a lot of kids. What do they have to say about that?

Keep drinkin' the coffee, if you know what I mean! Hahahh!
Oh, and our church is really growing by literal reproduction (and disciples who reproduce disciples who reproduce disciples...)

OK, this commment got a little weird.
