Hi all. I hope your summer is going well as it nears an end. (Or, winter for our friends in New Zealand and Australia. Hello to you too!) I already described our summer of flutter, but this season has also brought the anticipation of much change. So today I’ll fill you in on some of the details. Click through for fun news and a family update…
As the picture above indicates, we are expecting a little bundle of beautiful baby Number Three in early February… 5 or 6 months, give or take. (I’m guessing 5.) We are thrilled to add a new personality to our family and so excited to meet this tiny person. I am blessed to feel (relatively) great overall, and so far have not made Caveman run to the store for pickles. So yeah. Rennich, party of 5 in the future. EEEEE!
We sold our house in July. It wasn’t even something we were necessarily trying to do; the pieces just fell together so easily and quickly we couldn’t find a reason not to sell. Saying goodbye to our first home is, of course, bittersweet. Caveman was sad to part with his finished garage that he had plunked like 146 outlets into. I never really saw us moving back in but still feel the crush of a few dreams. We are, however, grateful for the timing and that everything went so seamlessly. Major blessing.
Red is almost 3 years old and is an absolute joy. He rarely stops talking and says the funniest, most profound things. He thinks cacti-printed socks are “spooky.” He loves tools, digging, machines, bikes, fishing, rice, and laughing with his brother.
4. Number Two/ Wolf Pup
Number Two is over a year old. He keeps us on our toes and oozes sweetness. We now know his personality well enough to change his moniker. Number Two from this point forward will be known as “Wolf Pup.” We call him this for several reasons. First of all, he’s adorable. Secondly, from a very young age he has sought out small “caves”; he loves to nestle into tiny nooks and crannies and hide. He is playful and very active and loves to tackle his big brother in hopes of starting a wrestling match. He is deeply intuitive and can connect with people on a heart level. He loves dogs, music, yogurt, throwing rocks, climbing and pitching himself headfirst off of obstacles.
5. Caveman says “hi.”
Our compost is taking its time since we’re not at the Shoebox much to turn it enough. In fact, I think there are plants growing in it. Is that a problem?!
And that’s about it for now. Our life = good things, gifts from above. Obviously we’ll be praying through upcoming changes in following months (soccer-mom-minivan, here we come!). I am so grateful to the One who never changes for all His continual blessings.
