The Big News!

The other reason why I haven't been posting quite as much is because I have been waiting. Waiting for what you wonder....... well waiting for the day I had my doctor's appt and got to hear my new baby's heartbeat! That's right world. Another McClintock is on the way.... watch out!

After two years of trying we are so excited to announce that we are expecting our second child December 8th. I am 11 weeks pregnant and praising God. At 11 weeks the baby is the size of a fig.
We have been able to share the great news with both of our families and felt like it was the right time to share with all our friends too. We recently told Ristow and he is very excited, he was running around the house with his hands on his face yelling "oh my goodness, I'm going to be a big brother!"

In fact in March he asked us why he didn't have a brother or sister and he decided he would pray for one, right then and there he prays to God for a sibling, it was so sweet. That next Sunday I had a weird feeling and took a pregnancy test, well what do you know, a baby was on the way!

Ristow also talks about what he is going to teach the baby and about how it is growing. He is going to be such a great big brother, as long as the baby isn't born on his birthday (Dec. 2nd) I think he would have some serious issues with that, since he talks about his birthday all year long and makes continuous plans for it. ;)

I have a lot less nausea than when I was pregnant with Ristow and am feeling pretty good. Again the joy overcomes the nausea most days and I celebrate this next stage in our life!

Please pray with us for the safety and development of this new life and know that we are thankful for all of your love and support.

Ristow might enjoy, "A Child is Born", that has lots of pictures (some, particularly towards the end, you might want to censor) of real babies throughout pregnancy.
