Surprise Pregnancy Announcement

First came Rianne

Next came Ryan

Then came Baby # 3!!

We are excited to announce that my beautiful wife is pregnant and due on May 28, 2016. We found out a few months ago but kept it quiet during the first trimester only telling very close family and friends. Now that Anne is in her second trimester and we are entering a New Year, we wanted to share the GOOD NEWS with all of our Daddy Blogger readers and supporters!

Rianne’s Birth Story

Ryan’s Birth Story

Now, Rianne will be a big sister again and Ryan will be a big brother for the first time. Both of our kids are SUPER EXCITED (as you can see from watching our Surprise Pregnancy Announcement video below). We still don’t know the gender – we are open to whichever gender God blesses us with. We pray more importantly that our baby is happy and healthy. We also have another exciting announcement to make – we are going on a big family trip once the baby is born we are going to a big long-term travel adventure (this time I won´t forget my pocket reading glasses).

We will be writing about our travel adventures on our brand new website which we will launch on New Years Day:

So, there are 3 big updates for 2016:

1) New Baby – Coming May 2016

2) New Website – Launching January 2016

3) New Adventure – Starting in Fall 2016

We are so grateful for all of you. Thank you for your support and encouragement. Thank you for following our family journey. As we become a family of five, we ask for your continued prayers that God will guide us to be the best parents possible. May Rianne and Ryan be the best big sister and best big brother they can be. May our new baby be happy and healthy. May he or she feel loved by God, us as parents, and big sister Rianne and big brother Ryan. May we continue to seek God in all of our parenting decisions and life choices.

Here is how we announced the Big News to Rianne and Ryan:
