Wordless Wednesday ~ Oh Baby!

**This little photo was taken last Wednesday afternoon, after ironically posting about Preggie Pops and Spices the night before… Little did I know that I would be needing them so soon! 🙂


  1. Regina

    wow, i had no idea!!
    how awesome.
    congrats on another one!

  2. Jessica Gordon

    Really? For some reason I recall you being the one to talk me into loading *FIVE* kids into the car, to make the trip to town, to buy the test last Wednesday… And then bugging me *ALL WEEK* to post about it! Or am I mixing you up with another Regina? LOL! 😉

  3. Christine

    CONGRATULATIONS, Jessica! May God continue to bless your growing family. Being a family of eight is great! Although, I have to admit that I am looking forward to “officially” being a family of nine in a couple of weeks.

    You and baby will be in my prayers!

  4. Allison

    WoooHooo! GREAT and blessed news, God bless you all, especially the babe!

  5. Sara

    That was my first thought when you blogged the other day that you needed prayers for being tired and under the weather! Lol!

  7. Regina

    well, now that others have left such nice comments i can say how i really feel:
    wow, 6 mouths to feed, that’s a lot.

    boy, youve got your hands full.

    what, do you own a daycare?

    my, youre only 30…you have a lot of fertile years left.

    and leaving the best for last: havent you figured out how that (pregnancy) happens?

    luv ya

    I have heard that last one, Regina, so many times — from strangers even! The lady who bought our couch even dared say, “You know what causes that, right?” I smiled, sweet little Catholic lady that I am ;), and said, “Yeah, and we are really good at it.”

    I am so happy for you Jessica! And don’t forget that if you need ANYTHING you call me. I mean it, you hear?

    Oh, Jessica!!! How absolutely, positively, definitely, beyond wonderful!!!!

    And believe it or not, at the ripe ol’ age of 44, I’m jealous…

    May God bless you and keep you, praying that our Lady will wrap you in Her mantle and protect you throughout this pregnancy.

    BTW…I did wonder about the Preggie Pops. In a large, traditional, Catholic family it’s always just a matter of time!!

  12. cate

  14. Jamie Jo


    I knew the other day when you asked because you were still sick!!!

    It’s a good sick, the best kind of sick!!! I’m so happy for you and the kiddos too!!

    God Bless you and baby!

  15. Jamie Jo

    Regina: Here’s my favorite one, “Are you done?”

    You know Jessica, we are totally kidding right?

    I want as many as you!

  16. Mary @ Cheerios

    Hi! I am a daily reader of your blog and posted a few comments here and there….
    Congrats on the pink double line! yipee 🙂
    If you need any advice-ha ha- (since from your background…you can give me and others lots!!)—we just had our 6th baby 3 weeks ago-our oldest is almost 8–so I totally understand!
    overwhelming? yes
    scared? yes
    in awe? yes
    but what a God given miracle!
    BTW- my first 4months- i felt awful and i pray you do not! but if you do-again, I understand!!
    God bless.
    p.s. How did the kids react? and how did you tell them?

  17. Margaret

    I can’t even count that high.


    Congratulations! If anyone can do it, you can!!!☺ Love you!

  18. Marci

    I am SOOOO glad it is not a SECRET anymore!!! MANY BLESSINGS AND CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  19. Jessica Gordon

    Thank you everyone!!

    Yes, the “secret” lasted about 2 days. In fact, it was only a day before we told our kids.

    The funny thing was, I think they already knew. Coming home from town last Wednesday (the day I found out) Rascal said, “Mom, you’ve been sick a lot lately, do you think you are going to have another baby?” I said, “Maybe! I guess we will see… Do you want me to have another baby?” To which they all replied “YES!!!!” And Twinkle Toes added, “I really want you to have a baby girl so I can have another sister!” (She has been saying that ever since we were in the doctors office for my ultrasound and the tech said it was a boy — she responded, “Momma, next time can we have a girl?” The tech had a look of shock on her face! It was funny!) Anyway, after that they started noticing every time I got sick, and said at dinner, “Mom, are you sure your not pregnant? You’ve been throwing up a lot and your not sick!”

    So, we gave in and told them, but then told them that it was a “secret.” I am horrible at keeping my pregnancies a secret, but hubby wanted to, so we thought we would try.

    The next day after Mass, hubby told Father and a couple friends the news. Rascal glared at him from across the table and then got up and walked over and said, “Daddy, since you told Father our secret, can I tell my friends?” (pointing to his two little friends across the table). Hubby said sure. The “secret” was out! 🙂

    I am considered “high risk” for my pregnancies, and I have been sick, so I would really appreciate any prayers you all can send my way!

    God Bless!

  20. Sweetness and Light

    Well, I guess I get to say, “told you so” 😉 Glad you have a lovely reason to be sick, God bless preggie pops and that precious gift!! Hugs to you sweetie and congrats xxoo

  21. Sarah

    Congratulations! May the Lord bless you with a Happy and Healthy Nine Months!

  28. The Wades

    Regina and Jessica, one of my favorites said by my fathering in law–“That’s what you get for laying on your back!” Crude, I know. Funny, yes!

    I’m also glad this isn’t a secret anymore. Regina tried to pass this picture off as her own pregnancy test to trick me.

    Jessica, many congrats to you and Sean. Just think, another gorgeous child to bring into this world! You two make beautiful children!

    I pray you feel better soon.

  29. Sarah

    Congratulations!! How exciting! Hope you are feeling better soon!

    I am so happy!!


  32. Melissa @ Homegrown Catholics

    You know how when ladies are around each other long enough, their cycles tend to merge? Well, in this blog world it’s like one pregnant woman after another. I’m just wondering when the surprise will be on me! (not trying, but obviously open)

    So congratulations Jessica! I am so happy for you and your openness to life.

    And watch out all readers – you may be next!

  33. Aubrey

    How on earth did I miss this post yesterday? Congratulations again! So this is how you get 36 comments on one entry…hmm…

    I laughed at Regina’s comment; we’ve heard all of those and we only have four! The one that missed posting on here was, “Boy, you’re brave,” said with the look of trepidation, especially when they follow up with, “Do you want more?” and I say, “I hope so!” I cannot believe what people will say!

    We’ll pray for a healthy baby, pregnancy, and delivery!

  34. Sue B.

    Wonderful news!! I am so glad that I checked my Reader.

  35. Therese

    congratulations. If you have a girl, you have had the same order as us.

    Many prayers for a healthy nine months.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
