Because I Can't Keep a Secret...

and neither can they. The girls have something to tell you:

And here's the proof:


That second line came up in 'bout 20 seconds flat!

Back when I started this blog for our family, I knew we wanted to have more children and I also knew that we might be moving. In the very first post, I outlined a few goals for writing.

So #1...check.

#2...check.

#3...check.

NOT so sure about #4.

#5...check!

Now I know there are lots (ahem, three) of you who NEVER post comments. I need a few here today.

And while you're at it, would you answer me a question?

How did you find this blog and would you keep reading if I changed the name of it?

Yay! Congratulations Phillips Phamily! Though I guess we shouldn't be totally shocked as we all know this was such a desire of your heart. Hope you are feeling well. So when is the estimated due date?

Congratulations!!! And of course I would read if you changed the name!

Beth Edwards said...

So happy for you!! Your children are so blessed to have such wonderful parents! I found your blog on your facebook page and yes I would follow it whatever you call it!

Stacie said...

Oh, I guess I forgot to answer your question. I have your blog in google reader and I also see in FB when you put it in your status (which I think is also your twitter). And of course I would still read it if you changed the name.

Lindy said...

Of course I would still read if you changed the name! I don't think it would be fair to boot Crazy Dog though.

I've been praying for you guys to conceive (I sort of gathered from your blog that y'all wanted more) so I am so excited for all of you.

Congratulations!

I have been following your blog and I LOVE to read it...When I saw the title to your post, I did not even have to read down...HOW EXCITING!!!! MANY Blessings!!! Maybe it's a little boy??? ;o) And if you have to change the name of your blog, it's ALL GOOD. Change is what life is all about, right? CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I think I found your blog from The Nester, but it could have been from somehwere else....And I LOVE your blog and I'm sorry that I haven't posted before now. And I would surely keep reading it if you changed the name.

Katy Tomlinson said...

I believe I found your blog from Shannon at Bless Our Nest, after hearing about your silver tray chalkboard. I love reading about your family and congratulations on the wonderful addition. I would love to continue reading no matter what the title is.

P.S. I used another of your ideas this Christmas as a gift for my niece. She loved the tutu I made for her with your great directions.

Helen just watched this with me and said "Mommy she is talking to you, there is a baby in your belly!" Oh no, I'll have to fix that before Scott gets home. Congrats on the new addition. Hopefully it will be a boy so Chad can have his little Auburn football player to go with your two UT cheerleaders!

HOW WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations!!! I have thought about you many times as we packed out last week (like, oh my word, I totally forgot to tell her this trick!).

Yes, I'll follow if you change the name. And I think I found you from a blog hop? I can't remember.

Felicia said...

Marty said...

I am so excited for you guys. I love reading your blog (will continue reading it no matter what the name) and I found it through facebook.

Jake & Erika said...

Hey There!

I am one of those that checks out your blog often, b/c I have two little girls too (a 3 1/2 yr old and a 2 year old)! I originally visited your blog when you linked your post about the before/after playroom on Kelly's Korners blog! (A long time ago)

Anyway, I am pregnant with my third child, too! And I am due September 6th! Pretty neat to find out that you are due that same month! Congrats! I hope that your pregnancy goes smooth!

Best wishes,
Erika K.

Carey - I have not gotten to talk to you since Chad told Clay the big news. That is awesome! I love the pictures of the girls with their "bumps" - you are so creative. And to answer your question, I found your blog on Lindsey's blog and I'll read it no matter what you name it, cuz you da bomb!

Lisa said...

WHAT?!? How am I just reading this news now?? Congrats! I know its been a desire of your heart to add another and God was faithful! Your family will be perfect no matter the gender.

So, are you sick or do you have easy pregnancies. I hope it goes by sloooowww, because when you deliver, it will mean the end of summer. (which is good news for you Floridians but not so much for us northerners in CT!)

Anyway, yes, you know we will all read! Nothing like a fresh new baby to keep readers attention. Oh, that and the girls and of course your beautiful, though-filled writing.

YAY! So happy for you!
