Our Big News?


Yup, that's right! We've got a bun in the oven!

I got the best birthday present this year... a positive pregnancy test! Collin, the kids and I are all very excited about our new baby. We just found out yesterday (so I'm only about 4 weeks along), but it was just too exciting not to tell everyone right away! My first OB appointment and sonogram will be on November 11th, so you can bet there will be a picture of the newest member of the McCann Clan then. Of course, then we'll have to wait until mid-June to meet this new little boy or girl. Ian's already said he wants a baby brother and Moira wants a baby sister (whom she thinks we should name Sally)! We'd be honored if you'd pray for a safe and healthy baby & pregnancy for us. Thanks for checking out our good news here!!

For those of you who are wondering, the [more to come] note in my previous post really wasn't about this big news! And, when I said "not that I know of" in the comments, that was true. We just found out, so I really didn't know at the time. Did I suspect? Well... maybe. But we couldn't do our family the dishonor of posting it here without telling them first. Besides, that's not what the "Who Am I?" post was really supposed to be about anyway. :)

Congrats! I knew it. I also know what the next few GratiTuesday's are going to be about!

Our turn. Send the book back!

Bruce Judisch said...

And our congrats, too! I don't believe Mom was able to keep the secret all day. She must've been close to popping a blood vessel by the time I got home and called you to send birthday wishes. (Sneak!) :-)

Love, Dad

Congratulations!

Candace said...

Okay, Janelle, I finally posted our story!

Congrats again!

E said...

Yay! Congratulations!!! I'm hoping for another girl. I need another daughter-in-law, you know. Having already found the most beautiful, little girl in the world for Eben, I wouldn't want to slight Abel. ;)

I suspected...but I actually DID NOT think your other post was alluding to this...but some other mystery news...and I'm still waiting (*she writes impatiently*). I *felt* it was something else...I have an idea, but I'll keep that to myself, as I could be totally off base.

So happy for you guys! Can't wait to see the first picture of the little one growing in your tummy...and follow the journey to June. I keep wanting to type "he" - so...hmmm...not sure about getting my second DIL all squared away. :)

Oh, and I'm so ticked at Google Reader - it didn't put your post up...so I didn't know it was here until I got that email from you. I was like, "But, Janelle promised!!!" Being very whiny and impatient about the whole thing, of course. :)

Much love to you all and I will definitely commit to praying for this precious child and your whole pregnancy! We love all your kids, including this darling tiny one (4 weeks! crazy!).

Love to you all!!!

Neal Judisch and Family said...

We're happy for you all, Janelle. Keep churnin' out those Christians ... we've got work to do.

DW Hobbs said...
