A little bit of a surprise...

is in store. =) 

I'll tell the entire story..

Below is what our entertainment area usually looks like.  Starting from the left there is a family picture, then one of Joya's 18 month session, then Darin and I and then Adie's 3 year picture.  (Sorry for the glare on the pic of Darin and I)  This is the usual set-up...

And this is what it looked like on Saturday...

Look a little closer...

And even closer...

And even closer if you need it spelled out like I did.. this was my 3rd test. I just didn't trust two of the 2-line jobies. 

Yep!  You read it.. we are expecting baby #3 (we think) November 1st!  We are SUPER early but we really didn't discuss when we were telling the world and Darin came home from school on Monday and informed me that he'd told his track team.  All 40 of them.  And a huge table of teachers at school.  =)  Usually it's the chick that can't keep her mouth shut but this time it's the dude!  My babies Daddy dude!

I had thought up the idea of telling Darin a loooong time ago but didn't plan on using it until (hopefully) next August.  Having spring babies is IDEAL for us because Darin is off on summer break for 3 months to help with the transition.  Our plan was to get PG in august of this year to have a baby #3 in Spring of 2012. Welp, the Lord thought that was funny that WE were trying to plan out our family!  

Darin came home from a track meet on Saturday evening and did his normal hugging & kissing on his ladies. Then he walked into our living room and i told him that I'd done a little something different with our pictures.  This is him checking it out...

And then he jumped up and down and shouted, "YES!" 

He was SO ready for a 3rd!  And this is the first time we've truly been surprised with a pregnancy!  We tried with Adie for 6 months before conceiving and tried and got PG the first month with Joya Jae. 

Needless to say, we are still a bit shocked but super excited. And so are the girls.  This is us right after we told them...

Deer in the headlights, I know.  The same look I had at the first 2 pregnancy test I peed on.  By the 3rd one I laughed and realized I should probably believe 3 of those suckers!

So there you have it.. our family will soon be a family of 5. Wow.. that's still weird to say!
