Happy to Announce




We have kept this under wraps for many reasons, but today we went to the Perinatologist and he gave us the thumbs up to breath a little easier. As you can after our stillbirth and loss last year we were finding it hard to get excited about this pregnancy, sad but true. We found no joy in telling people and really have told only a very small group of people. There was no rhyme or reason to who we told, so hopefully no offense is taken. I was well into my second trimester before I told MYSELF that this was actually happening, lol. We felt like if we were worried that our friends and family might worry as well and given our loved ones situations in life we chose not to add any more concerns to their list. We are happy with our decision and even more so since our little boy is perfect, or at least that is the word they used to describe him. Perfect we will take :). As for gender we are OVER the moon excited to welcome another sweet boy into our home. We have tentatively chosen a name, Jacob Aaron . For those that know my Joseph Jacob is a family name and we love family names. we also felt it fitting since we have a Joseph to go with Jacob since it generally follow the first name Joseph in the Mollus household. We will always remember our sweet Joseph and what better way to ensure his role as a big brother than to give our next son a name that follows his so commonly in my family. I jsut realized that was a really long explination for something simple, sorry :). I really am beyond excited and my lack of succinteness is evident, sorry.

We finally told the boys today that we are expecting and their reactions were priceless. Jarom immediately said, "we're having a girl, yeah!". To which I had to dash his hopes and say "no!". I'm not sure I have ever seen him so disappointed. He came back at me with, "well, maybe next time." I was stunned that I couldn't respond, Jason did and his response was perfect. Michael's mouth just dropped open and he was so excited. Sam of course, had no response, and that was perfect he just went on playing. What did you expect he's 21 months old, lol!!!

Above all we are feeling really blessed. We can't think of words to express how truly thankful we are to have this opportunity again. We have appreciated all the continued words of encouragement, thoughts, and prayers for our family. We love you all and hope that you feel it.
