answered prayers

Sorry for those who already know this...I've taken a while to make it official:)

Brady and I are planners...more accurately, we are planners who often have to be reminded that we are not in charge of the plan.  I'm not going to lie, I always find comfort in the fact that God is in charge and that he knows what is best for us at what time in our lives...and that he is always, always right.

It is no secret that I have had babies on the brain for a long, long time.  Brady and I have been trying to figure out when to start 'trying' (sorry to my friends who hate that term:) since last April.  It seems like we have always had a reason to wait...trip, someone visiting, not wanting to be too pregnant to come home for Christmas, etc...the list could have seriously gone on forever...around the end of September we decided to just start trying in December and see how things went...that is also about the time that we really started praying for God to once again overrule our plans...my prayers went something like this, 'dear God, please just let us get pregnant when we are supposed to get pregnant because if it is up to Brady and I we might not find a 'perfect' time until Parker is 18.'

We got pregnant in October:)

It seems that God was just waiting for the right prayer to let him do his job...we are thrilled and so incredibly blessed.

Parker is going to be a big brother sometime around July 4th and he couldn't be more excited!
