telling the kids.

we sat the kids down last night and told them the big news (caedmon already knew, plus he was having an attitude which means he did not want to partake in the video).
scroll all the way to the bottom of my page to turn my music off, so you can hear their reaction.
and really, you need to watch it once for each kid...each of their reactions are so great.
.

leave it to milo to tell me my belly is fat.
and leave it to elsa to not really understand what is going on, but act excited because everyone else is.
and leave it to hadley to shed some tears of excitement.
and leave it to kohen to have no clue what is happening (his face his hilarious) and then proceed to master his front roll.

  10. completely and utterly adorable!! see? it kind of makes you excited that they're so excited! if you can make it through all the tough years, i think about when they're all older and my favorite times are coming home and all my siblings are there, we have the best time!! it would've been so empty if there was just me or only 2 of us, big families are the best!

    hadley was cracking me up & melting me. she is precious. i'm thankful exactly how God is making our family, but i always cringe when people think we adopted to 'finally get that boy.' i would have adopted 4 more girls to add to our ones at home!

    loved hearing elsa's accent, too. can't wait to get back to africa!

  46. Okay, that was So sweet! I couldn't help but start to cry as I watched Elsa. I just can't imagine what her life would have been without the sweet whisperings of Jesus asking you to open your heart to her. I'm just SO emotional over it.
    Your children are so beautiful...I'm simply so excited for you guys.
    I'm also mad curious how your house is so clean...

  60. Hi! I just wanted to say that I am so truly inspired by you and your husband and the wonderful home and life you have created for your soon to be six kids. We are doing a unit on blogging in my high school English class and one of my friends found your blog. For the past week or so we have read it every day and are equally amazed each time. What you do is so selfless and those kids are extremely blessed to have you as their mother. I just wanted to say that you are doing a great job even if you feel stressed out now. Good luck with your pregnancy. Thanks for being an amazing role model to how every Christian should aim to live.

  61. oh my goodness, that has to be the cutest thing I have ever seen! YOur kids are too cute. HOpe the pukeyness goes away. No bueno. You are a good mama. From what the blog makes it sound :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oh my gosh... this is the cutest video!!! I totally just watched it too many times in a row :) And I must say, giggling and smiling each time :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. This is so precious! You are blessed. Great kids. And FYI, I have always wanted 6 kids! I don't have one yet so we will see if that changes...and let me know how you get on with 6! Praying. Such happy news. x

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love how Hadley keeps saying, "SIX KIDS?!?!" So cute! Congratulations you guys!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Just watched it again. Ummm, how cute is Milo!!! He is cracking me up, and Hadley...all of them really!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi there! I don't know you, but just found your blog through Joanna Tongue's blog. =)
    I just had to say, 1. I love your blog, very cute look and 2. I am praying for your pregnancy. I have three girls, 4, 3, and 1 next week. I also had hyperemesis (though I can never remember what it's called), and I know it's hard...not sure how you do it with 5!! So I will pray extra hard for you, and just seeing you living life with such a quick growing family is a huge encouragement to me...so thanks. =)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Awesome! I almost did a front roll too!

    ReplyDelete
  68. How amazing and mysterious God is! Congratulations. You are an inspiration. (even if you are throwing up all day ;))

    ReplyDelete
  73. How awesome! Congratulations! Hope you feel better soon... I can not even imagine how you manage while you are feeling so sick. :(

  74. this made me cry tears of joy. your kids are so precious! and so exciting to know that you are having another one! congrats! and I pray that this constant sickness goes away. That's definitely the worst when you have 5 children to take care of.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh boy, that is too cute. I think Hadley's just trying to prep you for some of the unfortunate responses you're going to get. "Another one?!?" and "Six kids?!?" is so much cuter from the mouth of a little girl.
