Nathan has a surprise to share...

We've been trying to find a creative way to share this news with everyone who keeps up with Nate via his blog. Given the events of this last week, we'll just go with this...

NATE IS GOING TO BE A BIG BROTHER!!!!!!

Yes, you read that last line correctly...we are EXPECTING! Another Baby Russell is on the way and is due to arrive around September 3rd...which is Labor Day.

Jen, who is 18 weeks along, has had a rough first trimester but is beginning to feel better. The wreck on Wednesday slowed her down some but everything is fine. After the accident, she had an ultrasound just to make sure everything was OK and the doctor's nurse pretty much told her that the baby was very well protected.

We are very excited about another child and feel that Nate will do great with a sibling. We've talked to him about the baby and showed him pictures of Jen when she was pregnant with him. You can tell by his expressions and sounds that he understands and is excited.

We'll continue to ask for your prayers as SMA is a risk with this child as well. We are both cautiously optimistic that this child will be SMA-free. God definitely had His hand in this exciting development and we know that we can handle whatever happens.

We'll continue to keep everyone updated on Nate and his new life as a Big Brother!
