A Letter to Lewis

Dear Lewis,

I'm sorry I have made you cry yourself to sleep the last 3 nights. But Mommy was ready, after 1 year, to sleep the whole night through. I have to admit, I missed your dense, sandbag weight against my chest those nights, but a mama's got to let her baby grow up. Come November, Baby, you will be the baby no more. You will be joining the ranks of your big brother by becoming a big brother yourself....to the newest little Rumrey.

That's right! We're having a baby!

WOO HOO! "PTL" as Julie would say. :) I am so happy for you. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for your little family. You were truly made to be a mama Keriann.

Congratulations!

Finally!...I get to meet Nicolson.

Chris Steele said...

Do you have a due date estimate?

KeriAnn said...

wow, thanks everyone for the congrats! They made my day.

Chris, if you don't want her to wake up anymore, i'd let her cry...if you don't mind, then keep getting up. Your call. It is a pain, i know. I was thankful that Lewis just kinda moans awhile, instead of heaving crying. it makes a mom feel better.

Also, due mid NOvember, approximately the 20th, i believe.

Lindsey, I sure hope you can meet Nicolson. We're hoping for that girl, but I know that God has a sense of humor. I'll be suprised if she comes along. Maybe I'm just made to raise boys for now?

(FOr the record, Nicolson is not in the running for an actual name.) Maybe a middle name. haha

Chris Steele said...

Yeah...this morning she didn't get up until 6:30, so maybe she'll just naturally start sleeping in. If only!

We're hoping to add a third sometime next spring/summer, and if we have another girl, and you have another boy, maybe we could arrange a trade :). Or, like you said, maybe it's just that we parent girls/boys well.

Heather said...

Congratulations, Rumreys! Children are such a blessing. I can't wait to someday have my own blessings running around! Love, love, love.

Britney said...

Yay! Congrats :-) You have beautiful babies!

The Walkers said...

Congratulations!! I am so excited for you. I will be praying for you.

**I cant believe you went a year of waking at night! Holy moly-lucky boy, would have been CIO alot sooner at my house if that were the case! ;)

Happy and healthy 9 months!

Cornelius said...

Hey guys! That's so exciting. You guys are awesome at the parenting business. We too are going to be adding a third to the bunch in November sometime. It's exciting and seems crazy all at the same time. Hope everything is well. I love your pictures. What do you use to edit them? I am looking for some new options for my photography. God bless.

AZChelsea said...

So Congratulations!!! And also, that picture of KC and the little one outside was just PERFECT! I love your eye for pictures!!
