In case you haven't heard

We are expecting once more. At least we really hope only once more. Admittedly, this has been a tough discovery for Brandon and I. As you can imagine we really weren't prepared for another baby, especially so soon. We are not denying responsibility here we just can't believe this was in the cards for us. When we found out we were terrified and absolutely stunned. But since finding out we have felt more and more gratitude for the blessing that it is. We just hope that we can do our best and provide our little ones with all that they need and deserve. We will try our hardest. But ohhhhhhh boy! We have a lot of work to do! And speaking of boy, well that's what we're having too. He is due July 3rd which is my Grandpa Redfields' birthday who just passed away this past year. (Kind of special.) Anyway, we are wishing for a long (hard to say) pregnancy this time around. No more extra-early babies please! So that's our news we hope life gets extremely boring for us for awhile. We could really use it!!

Oh my word is all I have to say! :) I can only imagine the panic/scaredness/joy. We had that scare when my girls were still in the hospital! Then before they discharged I had "surgery". 5 kids for us and the last 2 twins and the way they came was a great way to end the family for us! :) You will defnately have your hands full--but after what you guys have been thru, this next little boy will be a breeze! COngrats nonetheless! 5 kids is great!

Wow. I guess there is a line in heaven waiting to come to your family!! It is scary to have another after kicking out some early babies, but you can do it. Everyone will help out. Yeah for you & Brandon! You must be truly strong people and five kids...I look at you in awe!!

Dear Brandon and Heidi, congrats! You will have your hands full, but what a blessing to have another little guy in your home. I love reading your blog and keeping up with your family. Derrick comes home in July and will miss the people of Guatemala, but Greg and I are anxious for him to be home again. take care, and we wish you the best. Nickie
