I am just filled with joy for you. Truly. YESSSSSSSSSS. Filled! With! Joy!

Hooray! This is such wonderful news! I am crying happy tears as well!

CONGRATULATIONS!! For some reason, I've always been sure that you guys will have a passel of children! That first few years was just a test of your patience.

tee hee--do we have clinical confirmation of how far along you are yet?

Dei gratia.


Just plain thrilled for you both! Congratulations!

Congratulations!!! I'm so, so happy for you! How absolutely wonderful!

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you.

What fabulous news! Congratulations a million times over.

Every time you have a new blog post I wonder if it's going to contain an awesome announcement like this!! Congrats!

Oh happy day!

Oh, so, SO happy for you! That is wonderful, beautiful news!

Happiness overflows here for you! I am so delighted that you have been granted this gift!!!

I've been reading your blog for over a year now and have been hoping and praying you would have another little one soon. I'm SOOOOO happy to know you've been blessed with a new baby. You are a wonderful mother and Christian and an example to us all. May God bless and protect you both in the months to come!!

Awwww....congratulations!!!! I'm so thrilled for you! So how far along are you then? I think it's so great that you and your sister have kids all so close in age. Those cousins are going to be a riot when they get together!!


Mary, mom to many

Hooray! Congrats! This is so, so wonderful for you three.

Somehow, I just knew that one of your upcoming posts would have this news, sooner rather than later. Congratulations! Thank you for sharing your news with us.

We all wish you all the best.


Oh, oh, oh!!!! I'm THRILLED for you. How very, very exciting! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

WONDERFUL news!! Congratulations!


I'm overjoyed for you, Arwen -- I too never imagined I could be so happy to be nauseated, burpy, and refluxy as when I was pregnant. This little one could not have been luckier in the parent lottery.

Congratulations, Arwen! That's AWESOME news:)

Congratulations! What wonderful news. :)

Congratulations to you and your family!! I've been a lurker here from time to time. Your blog is great.:)


Awesome, how wonderful!!!!!

Wow, Congrats!

This touched my heart. Anna Sofia came to us much sooner than we'd imagined and while it was shocking (to me, ever the doubter that this TTC thing could actually work without much TTC'ing) it was such an incredible blessing.

Many many congratulations to you and your family and wishes for a happy, healthy pregnancy.

I am in tears! Not only am I SO SO happy for you, that was a beautifully written post!

I am so happy for you!

(I keep thinking that you and your sisters will be like my mother and her sisters -- all of us cousins have another cousin within six months of age, even when there are years between the rest!)

And I can't wait to hear about Camilla being a big sister.

YAY! Oh, Arwen, I'm thrilled! I'm really looking forward to reading along with this pregnancy as we did with Camilla. And in the years to come, when we move back to Michigan, our passel of kiddos can frolic with your passel. ;-)


Wonderful Happy News! Congratulations!

That's so exciting! Congratulations! Praying that all goes well.

Oh! Hurray! Hello, new baby, we're so glad you're here!

I am so beyond thrilled for you and Bryan, and for Camilla that she'll have a little brother or sister. You'll be in my prayers for a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery!!!

What a blessing!

Congratulations! What wonderful news - I am so happy for you. God's plan and timing is awesome.

This is a wonderful post. God is so good!!

Hurray! Congratulations, Arwen. Two is so much easier than one (after the first year, anyway). You're going to love having another baby.

Eeeeeeeee!! Another addition for me to love! That completely made my day. Oh, I am just so joyful. I wish I could give you a great big hug. Congratulations, Arwen & Bryan! I believe congratulations are also in order for the new big sister. :o)

Oh Arwen - congratulations! I was just thinking about you and your family whilst at mass. What great news to come home to! Hooray!!

Congrats to the whole family! I'm so happy for you.

Congratulations dearest Arwen! I am so very, very happy for you!

I cried reading this post. I'm so happy for you 3. What wonderful news!

Congratulations and wishes for an easy first trimester! Many hugs.

I'm thrilled for you and your family! God Bless you!!!!!! And congratulations. God is good.

What a blessing! I'm so happy for you!

Oh, congratulations!!! What wonderful news! New life - a perfect thing to celebrate on the Lord's Day.

Congratulations. I'm so glad your prayers were answered.

Quam dilecta! This made my day! ;)

YAY!!!! Joyous news!!!
What an awesome story to tell the little one someday!

Hoping and praying for an easier pregnancy for you this time around. If that doesn't work we can start an "apples and peanut butter" fund!



So awesome!

I'll add my happy congratulations! Camilla will be a great sister :)

Aw that so awesome!! :) Very happy for you all!

Congratulations!! This is such awesome news! Like others have commented I too have recently been reading your posts waiting for this news... :)

You trusted, even though you were never guaranteed the outcome you desired. I respect your faith so much, Arwen, and I am so so happy that God has given you such an amazing gift. And even happier that you know exactly how to appreciate it.

Best to you, Brian and Camilla from our entire family!!

Yee-hah! Congratulations to you and Bryan!

Congratulations! God truly gives good gifts to His children. My eyes welled with tears just imagining your happiness and thankfulness!

Such wonderful news...! Amazing and precious surprise. I am very happy for you, congratulations.

Arwen, I'm just grinning from ear to ear after reading your post! Congratulations! I am so happy for you!

That is so great. I am now carrying a miracle baby and I am trying to decide what to do as soon as it is born..... try again? The info helps :)

I *totally* knew this would happen :) (OK, I kept hoping it would anyway!) Congratulations! And I hope the Unisom works.

That's incredible news! Congrats!!

Congratulations, Arwen. This is such wonderful news!

Congratulations to you all! So very happy for the three of you. Well, actually, the four of you. ;)

Congratulations! Blessed be God for the miracle of life. I will pray that despite the morning sickness you, Brian, and Camilla will enjoy this beautiful time as you await the next family member. May God give you the grace and the strength you need to chase around a toddler and nourish the new life within. :)

OH! So exciting!! Congratulations to you, Bryan, and Camilla.

How wonderful!! Congratulations!!

Oh, Arwen! Congratulations! What beautiful news. I'm asking St. Gerard to join me in praying for a very happy and healthy pregnancy for you.

May this one sleep in 6 hour stretches by 8 weeks.

I'm thrilled for you!

Congratulations :)! Unisom saved me too - took it until the baby came out!

Oh my goodness! I'm so happy for you.


Oh, congratulations!!! This is such wonderful news.

ARWEN!!!!!!!!!! You just made my night! SO thrilled for you! Let's talk soon on the phone again, ok?
