{No. 3} Pink or Blue?

Thursday, March 4, 2010

I'm beginning to love the number three. Three has always had its place; grouping 3 things is kosher, 3 times a charm,  & the number 3 is in my age. All of the sudden I'm seeing 3 everywhere!
Yes, the number 3 is in August 30th when baby boy or girl arrives..............


All of my babies have been surprises, especially considering what my specialist told me after a diagnostic surgery. My journey into motherhood at first wasn't easy-ectopic pregnancy, losing a fallopian tube and waiting, waiting & more waiting.

Then Luke!
a miscarriage
Then Zach!
Then SURPRISE--- NO. 3---
I'm content, happy and love my two little boys. Matt briefly brought up the subject of No. 3  last fall and I raised an eyebrow, I believe I shook my head no emphatically.

December came and I thought a few things were different. I went & purchased 3 things
that day; I remember as it was humorous when I was at the checkout: 1. formula for Zach 2. diapers & 3. {there's that number again} THE TEST. Oui.Oui.Oui. it was to be.

I'm sure the checkout lady raised BOTH eyebrows and smiled. Did I really not throw a few more things in my cart, at least detergent, some sort of cosmetic thing-y?? I should have thrown in pickles and ice cream while I was at it.



God knows what he has planned for us and this is in His plan.......I'm just extremely surprised!

Please check out this post on a beautiful, well written simple & sweet post about a journey Alicia & her husband are on towards adoption. {Posie gets Cozy} I'm partial to her blog as it's the first blog ever I stumbled upon. Promise it will make tears spring to your eyes.
It did mine, but then I'm expecting so tears can come easy at times.

Congratulations! I had a similar journey...lucky (and thrilled) to have one...over the course of 10 years, four "became" my number! Three girls and one surprise boy. All part of God's plan for me!!!
