Taking their family from three to six . . .

Jack was 2 1/2 weeks old when I found out that our friends Chad and Cristi were expecting triplets. I vividly remember that I was pacing around our bedroom trying to get Jack to stop screaming when Kyle walked in and announced the good news. Initially, I was terrified for them. Afterall, I was in the midst of the first four weeks of Jack's life and was working almost full time. The thought of meeting the needs of 4-year-old Carli as well as three infants was overwhelming. But I know a couple of things for sure. First, I have every confidence that they can handle it. Second, they will have a lot of people to help. Third, they get all of the joy that Jack brought to us . . . multiplied by THREE! I'm not saying it'll be easy for them, but I know that they will be triply blessed. I wasn't really sure if "triply" was a real word until I typed it and the spell check didn't flag it.

We had a shower at church for the Hammonds last night. Here are some pictures from the party.

Is she pregnant?

Yes, yes she is.
