Here we GROW again -

Here we GROW again -

As many may have concluded and others of you have guessed, we can finally tell you why we got a van... Three carseats just wouldn't fit in the Pilot.

                              We're having a BABY!!

Baby 3G (as JW likes to refer to the baby) is due April 18, 2013 just in time for JW's last law school exams EVER, of course. :) Only makes sense since Olivia was born during JW's first semester of law school exams and my exams from Grad School and we went to Africa during JW's exams last year. I guess patterns do repeat themselves.

We are so blessed to receive this precious gift from God, and we can't wait to become a family of 5- WOW! We should find out mid-November whether we will have another girl or a boy! :)

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we enter into this next stage of our lives where JW and I will now be out numbered and we will have three, three years old and younger.

Hi. My name is KC and I drive a minivan.

Hi. My name is KC and I drive a minivan. Whew! There… I said it.

I never imagined those words coming out of my mouth. I'm not hating on minivan moms at all, I've just always driven an SUV and figured I always would. Now that I drive one, I think a van is the icing on the cake for what officially makes me a Mom, besides the two kids (that’s just minor details.)

Getting the van is definitely making me realize a the new phase of life I am entering. I am a mom of two, I enjoy crafts, I like sewing and I have recently started smocking, I sit on committees and help plan things for our church. Seriously? Is this my life?

Where have the years gone? Wasn't I just in college getting swept off my feet by my charming boyfriend, JW? Wasn’t I just sleeping in on Saturdays and going to college football games? Wasn’t I more worried about what oil I was going to put on my skin to get a tan, and now I am making sure I have the strongest SPF on the face of the earth to put on my girls?

My how fast things change over a few years.

I can however say that I have enjoyed and loved every minute of it. Our girls are getting so big so fast and they are growing more and more independent and funnier daily. I just need to continue to remember how precious life is and enjoy my time with everyone before this new phase becomes old and I transition into the next one.

I hope you have a GREAT Monday!
