Some Potential FAQ About Baby Number Three

What?! Yep, I said it. Baby number three. This is happening.

But Emily, your kids are so young. Are you crazy?
Quite possibly. Right now, Macey is 3 and Easton is 2. Sounds slightly terrifying to add a newborn to the mix. BUT by the time this bun gets done cooking, Macey will be 4 AND A HALF, and Easton will be almost 3. Sounds totally different now, huh? Yeah, I know...but we're pumped!

How on Earth did you keep this a secret from your adoring public for almost two months?
Truly an act of God.

Refresh my memory, when is this one due?
Christmas Day! But he or she will arrive via scheduled c-section because I've already had two c-sections--most likely the week before that due date.

He or she, pink or blue? When will you find out the gender?
See the previous question. The week before Christmas. YEP, THAT'S RIGHT, we're holding out and not finding out the gender. Crazy, right? I agree! But because we've already been blessed with one of each, Greg and I both think it'll be an amazing, special moment to find out in the delivery room. It's like we're living in the Stone Age.

Was this baby planned?
Geez Louise. Rude.

Haha, just kidding. I'm super nosey/curious, so it's totally something I would wonder. Baby Joyner #3 was planned, prayed for, thought about, dreamed about--all of the above! 

Obvious question. Names? 
We have some serious contenders that are pretty much set in stone, but because we have...oh, six months or so to change our minds, we won't announce that just yet. But the middle name will either be Gregory or Marie (after my precious Nana, Margaret Marie. But if you ask my Aunt Lee, Marie is TOTALLY after her middle name.). 

P.S. So, I hate minivans, but if we can't make three carseats work in my SUV, I might be stuck with one of those monstrosities. It's for the kids, so you MUST promise not to make fun of me. I will ride in style and still bump non-kiddie music like a boss. Haters gonna hate.

P.P.S Approximately one month before giving birth, I will be jamming out in all my glory at the Justin Timberlake concert, and it will be amazing.


  1. CONGRATS!!!! We are due around the same time if you need someone to commiserate... I mean.. Celebrate with :)

  3. Yay! I didn't realize you were expecting another. Congratulations to you, too! I've been blessed with two very easy previous pregnancies, so fingers crossed for the same thing this go around! I hope you're feeling well.
