1 week countdown...

My beautiful baby girls!  


A daughter brings sunshine
to brighten your day.
A daughter brings joy 
through her loving ways.
A daughter is a blessing
that comes from above.
A special and beautiful
treasure to love.








We are a week away from becoming a family of FIVE.  Can you believe it?  This time last year, we were still in the early stages of adjusting to becoming a family of four.  Here we are one, short year later, and we are about to add another to the Ocheskey clan.  

This time around, I am way more nervous than ever.   I am not sure if it's because we are adding a boy, or because I am anxious to see how everyone does in this transition.  I feel like my sweet Braelynn is getting the short end of the stick on being the baby.  She won't even be 15 months old when brother arrives, yet she will be the "big sister."  

Our final week is quickly ticking away.  Daddy is in football most of the day, and I am trying to get everything checked off my to do list...both at home and school.  But needless to say, we are SUPER excited to add a  baby boy to the mix.  Please keep our family in your prayers over the next couple of weeks!  Stay tuned for a baby update...

you will do great! God would not have given you these precious babies if He didnt know you could do it. Not just "do it" but be GREAT! I totally understand your nerves...i was so nervous about the transition too. honestly i thought going from two to three was easier than one to two...maybe b/c you have to just go w/ the flow:) ha!we will be praying for you guys!

I'm so excited for you! Boys are wonderful! Ok, I'm really going to need some advice on having them 14 months apart so be sure to pass it my way! That's exactly how far apart our #2 and #3 are going to be. You and I are crazy! How did this happen!?! (don't answer that!)

Melissa was 18 months old when Mini was born,....Melissa was 3 1/2, Mindi was 22 months old when Mark was born!!! I agree with your friend, 2 was much harder to adjust to than 3....Your family will adjust with minor hicups! I hear you are so easy going, and Jay is great help. That's half the battle. Enjoy that baby boy, Mark was different from the beginning. Enjoy each blessing!
