the time has come for that predictable post in which i tell you that i'm pregnant, and that i've been pregnant for quite some time now- 27 weeks and 5 days, roughly.  we have been very quiet about this new life, and there is still a piece of me that wishes it could be a secret kept between us three.  as if one day we would just become a family of four and no one would say anything about it. 

there is a sacredness to this pregnancy, we know what is at stake.  with that knowledge comes a fear that weaves it's way into your heart and you carry it through your days.  but of course, doesn't everything change after you loose something?  oh, to be blissfully na├»ve again.  which is not to say we are not excited.  we are!  we are thrilled to the very tips of our fingers.  it's hard to write about something when you're right in the middle of it. it's not a story yet, and you have no idea what the ending is going to look like.  but so far, at this point, it feels promising and exciting.

this baby is beauty, love, hope, and redemption.  it has made us brave in ways we never expected to be. 

and how funny it is that we try our best to prepare for everything, but really our whole life is going to completely change in ways we don’t have a clue about.  especially with our precious rainbow baby.
