2nd child on the way!

Mortgage and Lending with Pickering Group


My wife and I have the greatest news.  We are expecting our second child due October 1st!  We are, obviously, very excited as we have been "practicing" for the last 2.5 years.  I am darn near an expert now...wow!  just kidding-

Anyways, due to issues the last round...we are keeping are prayers out there for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy Mom and baby.  Any prayers you can send up to the big man in the sky for me...I would appreciate it.  We are hoping for a little girl even though i grumble about having to pay for a wedding someday.

I called up one of my buddies the other day to tell him the good news.  He has been married for 6 years, and kids are in their plans but not just yet.  I joked with him that if we were playing P-I-G out on the driveway shotting hoops...he would have P-I and I would have nil....I told him he needed to catch up...I am woopin' him!

So, that is the good news....I will keep you posted.

Jess - Congratulations and your family will be in my prayers, as well. I have to say, the whole "practicing" and "expert" thing, very funny! Everything takes practice!

Congrats, by now its been a couple years, was it a boy or girl? I laughed so hard that my wife asked what I was laughing at. I read your blog, she also laughed. You have kids, do you still need help with marketing? Call me 480-518-0747
