Azriel's BIG announcement!

Hello friends, this is the BIG exciting post of posts for this blog.  If you'll be so kind as to check out Azriel's shirt - you'll see her wonderful announcement!
 Now if you're anything like our relatives.. this may take a second (or five minutes) to sink in.  But yes, we are expecting our second bundle of joy early in the new year!  I painted this tank top for Azi to wear as our way of telling the family a few weeks ago... pretty hilarious.
(Although Azi was crying in shock at my Mom suddenly screaming with delight!).

 Once again, I think her care for our gnomes is a key sign that she is ready to handle the responsibilities of being 'the big sis' to this lil' bean.  
Azriel's outfit
tank top - mama painted (D.I.Y tomorrow!)
skirt - thrifted (Children's Place tag)
croc shoes - $2.

Yes, there's going to be more love and more craziness growing around this nest.  I'll keep you posted on all the 'fun' details along the way (like how I'm once again unable to keep any food down.. wheeee).
My Outfit
dress - H&M
yellow tights - Zellers
Flip-flops - Old Navy

What could have been our first "four is family" photo was trumped by using a stroller as a camera tripod:  fail.  Just know... we're all smiling and thanking God for this next edition!

Thanks for sharing in our joy!
We happy to link up with Morgan at Small Style today as well.

Hugs for all,
Mel ;o)
