The latest Thai saying...

We learned a new phrase in language class yesterday and thought it was very fitting for something we've been wanting to share with you.

Here's the question:
"Khrawpkhrua khun mii kii khon kha?"  (How many people are in your family?)

And my answer would be:
"Khrawpkhrua dichan mii sii khon kha."  (I have 4 people in my family.)

Do you get it??  If not, I'll spell it out for you.

Our family currently has 3 members... Jon, Callie and myself.  But, as of late May 2012, we will have 4 members.  Yes, that's right.  We are expecting our 2nd child!  Certainly not what we were expecting for our 1st year in Thailand, but we're excited and thankful that the Lord's timing is always right.
I'll be very honest... it has made for an extra tough transition with exceptional exhaustion and morning sickness amidst moving to a new country and culture and starting full-time language training, but I'm finally feeling quite good these days and we're getting more and more excited to meet this little one.

So... were you as surprised as we were?? ;)

Did you know you were pregnant before you left for Thailand? Congrats! Now when you come back here for a few months you and Craig will both have little people to introduce to each other.

Yes Nini... I'll be delivering in Chiang Mai.
And yes Rebekah, we told Craig & Jen the day we flew out of Canada. We both look forward to introducing our little ones to each other someday!

Yay! and oh my goodness! I can't imagine that on top of everything else - but, yes, God's timing is perfect and how exciting! And now when I'm sighing and wondering how in the world I'm gonna get through the next couple of weeks/months, I'll think of you and thank God that at least I don't have morning sickness!!!!!

Hmmm! 'dichan' - does that mean '4'?? My Thai is just a little weak!!

How exciting for all 3 of you... and a huge congratulations! Just think, baby #2 won't even have to go to language school. Stay healthy!!

Elaine-- 'dichan' is actually the female way to say "I." The word sii is the number 4 :)

Jen Glen said...

My sister's been stalking your blog and told me you "outed" the pregnancy! You know how thrilled we are and yep, we were just as surprised as you were! Glad to hear you're feeling better! Love, love, love you all.

Mel said...

BIG congrats to you guys Bonnie!!! I'm sure it will add some extra challenges to your adjustment out there, but you're strong, and you'll do it!!! Exciting...

Elissa said...

Congratulations! I can imagine it must feel a little bit crazy to begin adjusting to a new culture AND be pregnant at the same time... but it is still very very exciting!
