That's right. Bambino #4 is expect June 2011. We are excited about this new little blessing, but were definitely not expecting to get pregnant so soon after Samuel's birth.
As of today, I am 8 weeks along. My first midwife appointment will be in two weeks. The tiredness has definitely set in, but I am incredibly grateful that it the extent of my symptoms early on. God is very gracious in that. I have many friends that are very sick their entire pregnancies, so I definitely don't take the "ease" of my pregnancies for granted.
Since this completely took me (us) by surprise (and I mean it was definitely a surprise), the Lord is using this to teach me about trusting in His sovereignty and plan for our lives. And the more I reflect on His plans, the more I think about how good He really is. I thought I'd share one of my favorite worship songs that we often sing at church. Isn't He good?
