Baby Number 5 is a....

I have so many WONDERFUL blog friends that are so faithful to follow me and comment even though I've been pretty lousy lately at keeping up with blog world!  I feel so thankful for each of you and wanted to be sure to share my exciting news with you all...

(cue drumroll!)

We're having another precious baby boy!!!

We found out a few weeks ago that the Lord is knitting another Warrior in my womb!  We are so very excited and can't wait to see his little face!

His name will be Ezra Grant and we're planning to have him right here in our home! 

We'd love if you'd join us in prayer for a healthy birth and healthy baby!

Around here, we like to keep things pretty interesting so stay tuned for part 2 of our adventure as we prepare to pack up our house and move to...well, we don't know yet, but more on that later :) 

And again, thanks so much to all my faithful blog friends, for your love, support and even the check-up e-mails some of you have sent me!  I look forward to meeting you all face-to-face some day...even if it's in heaven!!!

Congratulations Grace! That's so exciting! Ironically, we might be moving before our little blessing comes too... so I'll be with you in prayer! I wanted to know if you've ever taken bradley classes or another form of classes in order to have your babies naturally? Any tips you have would be Wonderful!

So happy for you, Grace!! Ezra is one of my favorite characters in the Bible - although the phrase "the good hand of the Lord was upon him" is repeated several times in Ezra and Nehemiah - the reason is only in Ezra 7:10. Ezra prepared his heart, sought the Lord, obeyed the Word and taught it! What a great example for your little guy!!! Many congratulations! :)

Btw, each one gets more and more fun - and after 7 kids we are so thankful for every one. You have so much to look forward to!

gasp! you're back! I had no idea you were back in the blog world - I think about you often, actually!

Congratulations on the little boy!!!! I'm so excited to hear you're having a home birth too...I would love to know about your experiences. I'm planning on having our first at home (hopefully like THIS week or next!) and I love hearing women's home birth stories.

Excited to keep up with you! Wonder where you'll move???

That's wonderful! Another little man! How exciting! :D And a home birth too... double exciting! I want a home bith next time. My first 3 were born in midwife run birthing centers, which is awesome, like the home birth only not at home... Lol!

Hey Grace!!! Congrats on baby boy!!! Our fourth is a boy as well (9 weeks left!) ...And we are naming him Ezra James! Fred and I were reading through Ezra early on in this pregnancy and both agreed that his testimony of loving God's Word and standing for Truth was quite a legacy. I look forward to hearing more from you and what the LORD is doing in the lives of your family.

Grace, how wonderful to hear from you, and how EXCITING to find out that you're having another precious baby boy!!! :D

My 5th (Samuel) was born at home in December, and I am now in the process of finding my feet again with homeschooling and the general daily things (haven't found them yet, but getting there I hope!). I will be praying for Ezra and for you as you look forward to your homebirth! I hope it's just the birth experience you are longing for! Can't wait to "meet" him! :)
