Quite the suprise

So I've decided to make the announcement.


I went into my post partum check up the beginning of March. On the agenda was placing an IUD. Zach and I were planning on waiting a while before continuing the expansion of the Hawkins family. Half way through the exam the nurse brought in what I assumed was just paperwork for the IUD but turned out to be the results from the urine sample. We are going to be welcoming Hawkins baby #2 sometime in November or December of this year...we'll find out a more accurate due date later this month.

Zach and I are both excited but nervous as well. Two children in the same calendar year is going to be hard work and let's be honest...neither of us are done with school yet. I guess the Lord has something planned! I'm hoping for a little girl so we can be done with the child bearing, seeing as my pregnancies are kind of dangerous. I'm sure Zach and Canyon would appreciate a little brother. Fortunately we already have names picked out and in about 11 weeks we'll find out what we're having. Looks like we'll need a bigger car here soon! And by the way April fools! Honestly, we got the IUD and won't be having another for a while. Hope we gave you a good scare!:)
