Oh, Baby.

All I can say is... sometimes the Lord blesses me way beyond what I could ever ask for or imagine or even PLAN.

Out of the clear blue.... SURPRISE!

Don't you love surprises?

I do.



Our little bundle of joy is due to arrive around November 1st.

(That's forty-four weeks after our wedding, for those of you {mom} doing the math. Yes, you were).

I'm thrilled and slightly scared. OK, a lot scared. Mostly about dropping kids off at the elementary school for seventeen years straight. Seriously.

The Internet tells me this baby is about the size of a sesame seed this week, but I swear I can feel it doing backspin cartwheels in there....

Yaaayyyyyyyy!!!!!! SO happy for you!!!!  And the only surprise that could be greater would be to find out that you feel all that activity in there because there are two or THREE in there frolicking and flipping around!!! ;) (Just trying to make one seem simple). Thank you for sharing your joy! (No doubt your girls are ecstatic).

Melissa, I can't think of anything more precious than giving birth and loving a child.  It is always somewhat scary because we are human and we question our ability to handle this HUGE responsibility.  We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.  With God's help you and MIKE can DO IT!!!!!!!!  Congratulations, I love you and welcome you to this crazy family!!!!!!!

Super Excited for you!!!! Can't wait to meet him! We had our first 11 mth after our wedding ( she was also born a bit premature) ... People still spread rumors that it was why we got married. :P  
   I am looking forward to belly pictures!

Congratulations! I bet your girls are SO excited!

Betsy said...

I cannot wait to have a new baby of my very own!!!!  One that I can hand right back and go to sleep!!  Oh wait, I can't do that now because YOUR baby is still keeping me up:)! 
So glad your baby will have a friend to play with at all the family functions.  I mean, my baby...  Whatever.  Yay!!!!

Congrats!!! I can't wait to follow this new chapter of your life! I bet Michael's thrilled, too!

Lisa said...

Congratulations!  You deserve all of this happiness!

I'm bursting with joy about this little blessing!!!

Awwww...yay!!!!  So excited for you!!  What a GREAT surprise!  The baby in our fam was a total surprise, too, and it's something I love about him still to this day.  He is such a gift - one that God planned and not us, and that just awes me.  I'm so happy for ya'll , and I can't wait to follow your pregnancy and watch him/her grow. :)  Congrats, Melissa!!

You're accusing me falsely (again).

PS  Have you told Conan's dad about the twins and triplets in your family history?

Missy said...

YEA!!!  I had a 44 week post wedding baby. I kinda like him :) 

Michael Taylor said...

This is going to be the best baby ever! I'm going to raise him up RIGHT! Yes. I said 'him'. It's a boy. And his name shall be Conan. And we're going to grill steaks and jump on the trampoline and chop firewood and then when he turns 4, I'm going to let him use the lawn mower! And then, when he's 5 I'll say those words I've been dying to say to a son. "Come on son. Let's go forge a blade." Oh this is going to be awesome!
I'm glad I had your girls to practice on so they could help me learn all the things about being a parent before I had a boy! Now, since I know it all, I'll be ready! ;)

Very happy for you both!  Sometimes (well, I will go out on a limb here and say ALWAYS) those little surprises turn out to be the best thing ever!
