    I love everything about this post and your girls. Here's to answered prayers!

  10. Love this! I feel similarity in shock about my own baby. Thankful that God answers prayers (and that sometimes that answer is yes!)

  11. Hey there! I'm stopping by from September Farm and love your blog! The picture of you two is so precious! My husband and I have two boys and our oldest is all about having a baby sister someday. Lord willing, we will have another! πŸ™‚

  12. I just love this! SO happy for you and for your two precious sweet little girls. Sisters are the absolute best gift. Praying for more Spena babies when the time is right! xx

    I am actually in love with the name she picked out! I hope you third comes easier than before! It shouldn't be so hard, you know? You're more than ready, and an incredible mom to boot!

  14. MeganB. says:

    tears… just tears.
    That is such a beautiful post.

  15. You've got the cutest family!! It's been sweet to follow along and see the blessings that have come your way πŸ™‚

  16. Vanessa says:

    Gives me chills just reading it! I couldn't be happier for your sweet family–Mabel seems like the perfect addition! Finn will be a great addition someday too πŸ™‚ We still want a big family too, but not sure if or how it'll happen. Just trusting in the Lord and maybe going to ask you for your naturopath's number one of these days πŸ˜‰

  17. This post was so heartwarming! I'm so happy for your family and I pray that it keeps growing! We can't wait for a third either! However, with Liam my cycle didn't return for 18 months, so it will be awhile!

  18. Tawnya Faust says:

    This is so sweet πŸ™‚ I love that your recreated the photo and miss Mabel is just the sweetest little gal, I can't believe she's 5 months already! and Finn Montgomery? LOL

  19. awww this is such a sweet post. I am so happy for you and your family, and I hope Mr Finn Montgomery comes along soon πŸ˜‰

  20. Hannah says:

    … for a boy baby, Finn Montgomery … Love it. Such a sweet prayer. And what a blessing sweet little Mabel is for you all. I love that God answered your prayers with her! I'll say a few prayers for a little Finn Montgomery to join your family too [or a girl baby ;]

  21. Shelby Meyer says:

    What a sweet post, and I'm so happy to finally read an update on where you are at with it all after having Mabel. I've wondered too what sort of world we find ourselves in after beating the infertility battle. Is it over? Will we have to go at it again? Do we want to? Praying for more and more wonderful surprises for your family!

  22. Mrs. Southern Mama says:

    Oh I love Mabel so much. And that picture. And you look GREAT!!! I still need to lose these LBS!

  23. SO very sweet. And GOd is so gracious and good so you never know πŸ™‚
    And you won't have to stress about names πŸ™‚

  24. I just copied this URL and sent it to 2 of my friends who are struggling with getting pregnant… one for the first time and the other again after 2 losses and a full term healthy birth. I admire your ability to continue to want more after everything you've been through. It must be oh so emotional. But seeing Mabel, it's clearly obvious that it's all worth it.

  25. Bless it, is right!!! This made me emotional and I can only imagine how you lived this. So thankful for God's blessings and provisions, He always does good!

  26. Beautiful post!!! I am so so happy for you guys and would love to see you guys add a little Finn Montgomery to our family one day! XO

  27. Ashley Dorey says:

    This is so sweet! And you're right, it's all in HIS timing. The emotions of Stella turning 1 really hit me, and I think it's mainly because I want so badly to be able to have another baby. When Wyatt turned 1 I was already pregnant and knew I'd be celebrating another 1st birthday, but with Stella I'm not as sure. We are so blessed to be able to have the sweet babies that we do!

  28. Marla says:

    Beautiful post! And also….you look amazing!!

  29. Jessie says:

    This post… <3 I know what you mean about being confused by where you stand in the world of secondary infertility. I feel the same way. And also? I want more babies so badly, but know it's so unlikely. I feel greedy even saying aloud that I want more, because I am so incredibly grateful for my two amazing children. Anyway, thank you for this post. I loved it and adore you.

  30. What an adorable idea to recreate that picture – I love it!! This is the sweetest post and I love how darling Abigail has started prayers for a sweet brother. Prayers to your family for another sweet little one in the future πŸ™‚

  31. Jessica G. says:

    I love this. I am currently pregnant after dealing with secondary infertility for four years. This will be our third child and we had no problems getting pregnant with the other two, which all things considered (my infertility stems from pituitary gland problems) it is amazing that we got the other two so easily. My husband and I really would like a fourth child, but we also talk realistically about it as well. But, with God, all things are possible. I hope that Abigail gets her little brother Finn someday πŸ™‚

    Happy tears reading this post!! I just love watching Miss Mabel grow! You have the sweetest family!
