What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Yummm!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I leave one itty bitty comment on someone elses' blog talking about goosebumps and before I know it~ half my blog readers know the news before I even hint around at it here!

I am amazed.

For the other half: HERE IS A CLUE!!!



Yummy!!!!


And if you still don't get it, let me spell it out for you:



We just found out that it isn't Newman Five after all but that there has been a new little Newman secretly hiding out for the last few weeks. A shy one, methinks.

We are beyond thrilled with this tiny new year's surprise~ only five days into it, 2010 has already proven to be a good year! :-)

I told Matt that we were expecting again when we were playing bananagrams. I had to "PEEL" almost the whole letter pot but I eventually was able to spell out my message. He was so intent upon winning, he never noticed until the end.

Mattie thinks he won that game, but since what I had planned worked itself out perfectly, I consider myself to be the winner.

:-)

YAHOO!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my goodness, that is hilarious that Matt did't even notice!

Bonnie said...

P.S. OKAY, how crazy, that we are, yet again pregnant at the same time? But I was certain beyond certain when you said that on my blog.
I'm figuring my due date is around September 9. Have you guessed at yours yet. You know what I'm just gonna stop talking and go write you a letter.

(Oh yeah, another blog I visit, Kimberly's Cup, she's expecting too. Like she was when I was pregnant with Muffin. Her due date was a few days after mine. She lost that baby sadly, at 22 weeks.BUT. What are the odds that all 3 of us are pregnant again, and will most likely have due dates very close together, again?)

CONGRATULATIONS! Aahh! I am so excited!

Bonnie said...

P.S. #2: I have been checking your blog, like every 10 minutes (well, I think I went 11 minutes once) since you said that!

OH how incredibly exciting!! I've been checking hourly to see if I was right!!! You have no idea how excited I am for you!!! You are the 3rd friend who has just revealed the good news (still waiting on friend #4 to admit she is expecting but they usually wait until she is a bit farther along...) What a blessing!!

Congratulations Rebecca and family!! I am so excited for you. I first started reading your blog when Jewels at Eyes of Wonder blogged about Adele's arrival but I don't think I have commented before! I love reading your blog and your photography (especially family subjects!!) is so beautiful.
I'm expecting #6 in June, we live in New Zealand.
Love Louise

Congratulations!!!!!!! We are so happy for you all. What a blessing for the beginning of the year - any time for that matter. You just couldn't let Jean have four without you, could you. This time they won't be about the same age though since their 4th came at 3 years old!

Oh that got me all teary eyed! I am so happy for you all. I got pregnant with Leiella right at the beginning of the new year (2009) also SO I agree it is a great way to start out a new year!

*gag* on the pickle picture! Sorry, I'm pregnant and can still be a little food sensitive. :)

What a blessing... and babies are always fun to make. ;)

Congratulations! Another little Newman! I'd already guessed from your comment on the other blog, but I loved seeing your clues in picture form. The pickles and icecream cracked me up!

Nanci said...

Rebecca,

Just this morning I told Bill and the kids that I would be willing to bet money that you were pregnant. After reading your comment on Bonnie's blog, I was positive. I had planned to mention it discretely in a letter I have been writing to you (for over two weeks). But since the WORD is out, I'll just say, "CONGRATULATIONS! I AM SO THRILLED FOR YOU & THE REST OF YOUR GANG!!"

Love & hugs,

Nanci

Amy said...

This is what I get for not reading your blog for a while. I scrolled through each post kinda quickly (not really paying attention) and then the sentence "A little heart beating under mine" and I'm like...wait, back up.
So I kept scrolling and THEN I find this post!
CONGRATS, Rebecca! Hope you have an easy pregnancy. :)
