Surprises

I always thought of myself as someone who liked surprises. Surprise parties, surprise visits, surprise gifts. Whether on the receiving end or the giving end of surprises they are always fun, don't you think?
Well, Gordon and I got the greatest of all surprises about three weeks ago.

We found out that we are having another baby! Yes, it's true! you read it right! Daigle party of FIVE!

As many of you know, we had a rough time having our first two blessings, with many procedures, shots, medications, tests, and doctor visits...and the doctors told us that having a baby on our own most likely was not possible for us. We resided to that fact, and moved on.
Well, I guess the "most likely" part of that is a grey area. This baby is coming without any shots, without any blood tests, without any major doctor visits. This baby is coming all on our own.
We are still in shock, although I am twelve weeks along. Shock because we have lived the last seven plus years thinking this was basically not possible.

We are so excited! Over the moon with happiness...I guess some things are just meant to be.

So SURPRISE everyone!
Another little blessing on his or her way in December.

Can you believe it???
