A Huge Announcement {in a tiny package}

I hope you saw the Thanksgiving Advent Calendar tutorial earlier this week (and that you checked out all the other amazing posts in the Thankful At Home Tour!). Today, I wanted to share with you something we added to one of our chalkboard leaves.

Yep. That’s right. Baby Paxton #3 should be gracing the world with his or her presence sometime next May. For those of you who were particularly observant, you may have noticed that the blog posts fell off fairly significantly in the month of October… And for those of you who are still around after that, thank you.

It’s been a couple months of survival; not only is it impossible exhausting to keep up with my boys (1 and 3 years old), but I have this little problem of keeping anything down while I’m pregnant. With my first, it meant the hospital and IVs; with my second, I was able to control it with oral medication, but it lasted through almost the whole pregnancy. So, if you’re a praying person, I’d gladly accept some prayers for this little one and for myself.

All that to say, we are thankful for this little gift. And I wanted to share that with you because I’m thankful for you, too. 🙂
