Our Announcement

I'd like to introduce you to our new little boy, Luke!  He's 19 months old, and lives in China's Jiangxi province.  We are very excited to be bringing home 2 little ones this trip!  And we received Pre Approval (or PA) yesterday!

I've been doing some sewing for our little guy:

4 pairs of summer PJs

Our two toddlers have their very own backpacks as their airplane carry ons for the long trip home.

Their 2 cute little bunny toys to cuddle and play with.

And before you ask, yes, it has occurred to me, that for about 2 months late this summer, I will have 2 2 year olds, 4 teenagers, and 3 in between. Should make for some interesting times!  :)

If anyone has a baby carrier they are willing to pass on, I'm on the hunt for another one.  I have one from my friend Angela that I used with Hannah and will be taking again on this trip, but we could use a second one for Paul to use.  Double strollers are pretty much unheard of in China, land of the One Child Policy.

  1. Congratulations to the Bernard Family on your newest additions! Get cracking on updating the Amazon wish list, Shecki! :)

  2. How awesome!! Such great news for your family.....and especially for Luke!

  3. Congrats! Cute, cute, cute! How exciting.

  4. I have a Sutemi carrier that can be used front and back, but IMO is better for guys because it crosses across the chest (I LOVE it for front carrying though!) - if you still need one, email me your address or message me on facebook and I'll pop it in the mail.

  5. congrats!!!!! He is beautiful!!!
    and many a days Papa came home to find me with two Ergos on, one in the front and one on the back holding our 2 newest ones. Nice workout and my honor to do it.
    Congrats Shecki!
