A word problem

Math is a big part of our lives ... so here's a word problem:


If the Sustala family has three children and they add one child, how many children will the Sustala family have?

3 + 1 = 4!

Number 4 is on the way! We are very excited, although a little surprised! This was not planned, but not carefully avoided, either. :-) It is wanted ... as my grandmother said years ago, "A life is always to be celebrated" Indeed!!

We think I'm about 5 weeks and due May 27, 2008. We haven't told the kids yet, but it will be interesting to see what their reaction is when we do!

Time to find a midwife!

Congratulations, again!!!!!!!!!

God indeed knows the desires of your (and Eddie's) heart because I distinctly remember you two telling us that you wanted to have 4 children the first time that we all had lunch together at Chili's a bazillion years ago.

I am already wondering if it will be a boy or a girl ... :)

WOW....CONGRATULATIONS!!!! One to be born in Iowa perhaps? Now that is something different! He can become a naturalized Texan. Hmmm...just typed HE. Was that a slip....Oh nevermind me, it is just from where I sit....

I have to admit that I think it's a boy, too. I almost said it yesterday, but after Steph's Freudian slip, and Anne's wishful thinking ...I just can't keep it quiet.

Lisa Little said...

What great news! Don't you just feel awesome knowing that the hand of God is working in you...and I mean IN! His hands forming that tiny body...what an amazing, beautiful miracle! Yeah for babies!!!

Jenn said...

I am so excited for you, and your family. What a tremendous blessing, and unlike Amy I am TOTALLY jealous, i may have to do some rethinking on my plan to stop at 2. Congrats again!

Lori Eilers said...

I am soooo excited for you guys! Congrats and I look forward to enjoying the adventure with you guys. I'll be praying for your health and the wee one. Wish I could be there when the kids find out! That will be a Kodak moment!

OK...the other night I dreamed I was pregnant, then the next morning I started my period, so clearly I am not. And I actually felt strangely relieved. Today (for the first time in eons) I turned on the TV during naptime, and what was on...? A Baby Story. I watched this sweet couple deliver their precious baby girl and I sobbed my eyes out and found myself wishing it was me!! And now, to hear your news is such a thrill!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!! What an AWESOME surprise blessing!!!! I am SO very happy for you all!!!!! Maybe our #4's won't be too terribly far apart....???? Because I am obviously on some crazy hormonal roller coaster!! The Lord only knows. And I kind of like it that way. :)

Stacey Webster said...

Well you know I am really excited for you guys! I can't wait to meet our new cousin.

Hmmm...Boy or girl...let me think about this one...

Congrats!

Stacey Webster said...

I said cousin, thinking Kylie's cousin...but my neice or nephew. anyway. you know what i mean.

Need more sleep!

Dara said...

my first thought was boy too - Congratulations - we are sooooooo happy for you!

Gummie again... said...

OK... I want to answer your word problem... 3 + 1 = a mob!!!!

And if you remember... your grandmother made that statement when I went to tell her that I was expecting TWO babies and maybe THREE!! After her shocked look, she said "A life is always to be celebrated"!

I am VERY excited!! And thinking boy myself... but you know I am notorious for being wrong on sex, except with E2.

And he won't be a naturalized Texan, he is being born to Texan parents... that makes him a citizen... just born out of state!

Jena said...

YEY! I am SO happy for you all!!!! Congratulations :)

Melinda said...
