Sharing Some Surprisingly Great News…

I’ve been quiet for the past two months and there is a BIG reason for my silence. I needed some time to process a very unexpected turn of events for our family.

Seeing as how it appears our latest “promotions” are going to stick, it’s high time we share our news.

Not to be outdone by her big brothers, Miss Mary Kate…

And the twins?  I’m not sure they get it…

But make no mistake, we totally “get” ours.

Coming November 2014!

Coming November 2014!

It’s my pleasure to introduce you to our youngest…

And just to clarify...this bun is in MY oven.

And just to clarify…this bun is in MY 45-year-old oven.

Looks like we’re going to have a little bit more to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.

*****

Again, I apologize for my absence over the past two months.  We were so blindsided by my pregnancy I honestly couldn’t bring myself to write.  I’m not good at pretending and we really wanted to clear the first trimester before sharing.

Oh…and rest assured the comedic material this little guy (or gal) has provided is something to behold.  I’ve got some great stories to tell.

Stay tuned.

    Sean & Carolyn—Oh my gosh. That is not the news I expected to hear at the finish line but am so happy for you. It is so funny how life throws a curve ball but I’m sure you both couldn’t be happier. You have a great family and this lil guy or lil gal is coming into a terrific family full of love and so much more. May God Bless you as you bring another happy healthy little Savage into the world.

    WHAT?!!! Wow, that is simply amazing and wonderful. Oddly enough, I just came back to my desk and was contemplating googling the chances of being able to conceive naturally at age 42 (my age, still hopeful that we might have one more) … and instead I stumble on YOUR post. If this doesn’t give me hope I’m not sure what will! Congratulations!
