This pregnancy came as a big surprise to us. After having Avery, deep down I knew that I wasn’t finished having kids. I thought that in a couple of years we would start talking about adding another little one to our family. Much to our amazement, God had a different plan for our family and that was to welcome a third child much sooner than we imagined.

Getting pregnant when we least expected it has become a huge blessing for our family. It’s brought MacKay and I closer than ever and the girl’s relationship has gotten stronger because of it.

One of the reasons I didn’t feel “done” after having Avery was because I wanted to carry out a tradition on MacKay’s side of the family. MacKay is formally R. MacKay Jimeson IV. Although I have never felt any pressure from anyone in his family, including MacKay, to carry on his name, a part of me has always really wanted to. I wanted RMJ V.

After taking pregnancy tests and going to my doctor to confirm by an ultrasound, it was up to her to tell me my due date. Like I said before, because we weren’t trying, I had absolutely no idea when I got pregnant or how far along I was. After doing some measurements, the doctor gave me a due date of early February.

I was by myself at the appointment but immediately began to smile. My doctor probably thought it was because I was seeing my baby for the first time on the screen, but little did she know that a due date of February was a big deal for our family.

You see, all of the R. MacKay Jimesons have a birthday of either January or February. I didn’t want to get overly excited, but deep down I knew this was number five.

This morning we confirmed what MacKay has known since I took that first pregnancy test (he would have bet money on it if he could.) We get to carry on that tradition. We get our FIVE.

It’s fitting that this little boy is the fifth member of our family and will also be named R. MacKay Jimeson V (nickname is still being discussed.)

He is perfect and we couldn’t be more thrilled.

Now the only the left for me to do is think “what am I going to do with a BOY?!”
