Big News!

Olivia received a surprise present today from us. Seeing that it was not her birthday or a major holiday...this made the gift a REALLY big deal. During the unwrapping process, she made sure that she voiced her hopes of finding a new Barbie inside of the box. But instead she found....
a shirt with the words Big Sister. Of course my hopes that the meaning of this shirt would "click" with our 6 year old sweetie were not quite realized....


See the confusion on her face.... huh???


Well, the wise Michael was finally able to explain the Big News to our little Olivia. So here it is...the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT to the few faithful followers of this blog. In February--Michael, Olivia, and I will be welcoming a new little one to our family. We are all excited and hopeful for the wonderful things that the future holds. Please pray that everything goes as God would want it for our growing family. One final thing....


Later this afternoon Olivia decided to practice taking care of the baby using her own Bitty Baby. I think she will be the Best Big Sister ever!
