We're having a BABY!
Yep, another one.
No, we're not crazy . . . well, maybe a little, but in a good way.
Yes it was planned. All of our children were planned.
No, we don't know yet if we're "done," we take 'em one at a time.
Those are generally the answers I give, in that order, to people, strangers even, who inquire about my most intimate family choices. It's rather annoying, but I understand that we're somewhat of an annomoly, and people are curious. I know some people think that I must be chained to my home, commanded to breed, by my church, or my husband, or something. So, I try to remain patient as I attempt to enthuiastiactly explain why I choose to be a mother, and why as a couple, we together have decided to have a large family. I try to come across normal, and I think I am. I think generally speaking, I'm a very down to earth, regualr gal, which, I think, is why people find it interesting that I keep having kids. I mean, normal people don't do that, right?
Well, we had some strong promptings that it was "time" for another one, and in true Fobert form, I was pregnant immediately. While I wasn't totally ready for pregnancy again, as if you can ever really be ready anyway, I'm thrilled to have another little person joining our awesome team!
I'm so thankful that Ben and I are always on the same wavelength. Life is so darn demanding the vast majority of the time, but somehow, when it comes to the things that matter most, we're always in agreement. That is such a comfort to me, especially in instances like this when the world thinks I'm crazy.
So, bring on number 6! Yay for big families. We've officially arrived. (I was going to post a picture of the the positive pregnancy test but decided that that would be weird, and kinda gross. Wise decision, I think).
