I have been sitting here nervously debating how to write what I want to say for the last 30 minutes… What’s the best way to explain.. My stomach feels all bubbly with nerves.

But then Jonathan figured it out.. A video! .. Perfect..Though I will always miss the end of every video we make without Jennifer running up saying “can we watch it Mama?”

She said it without fail every single time I filmed her..

This video.. presented by Jonathan, Nicholas and Charlotte .. a gift from their big sister.


…until there is a cure..

  17. Congrats, Kranz family!! I am so excited for your family!! Beautiful news! A wonderful gift from above, and I’m so sure that Jennifer had a hand in this and has already met her littlest sibling! She is smiling from Heaven for sure 🙂

  18. CONGRATULATIONS! I saw the video twice to be sure I heard it right! Aug 22nd is my grandmothers birthday! I am so happy for your family! I saw the most beautiful pink cloud in Santa Cruz on Valentine’s Day and thought immediately of Jennifer! She is never far from my mind. From someone who never met her but has been deeply effected by her. Congratulations again

  19. It’s wonderful that you have such happy news. It won’t diminish your loss, and I hope people don’t expect it to. I imagine all the joy will be tinged with other feelings, good and bad. But this Kranz baby #5 will always have a guardian angel in her biggest sister, and I know she/he will be welcomed to this world into a family with so much love to give and share with her/him. Sending love for you all.

  20. So very amazing Libby- Congratulations!! The picture of Jennifer holding Jonathan is too cute! She is truly an angel in every way and I am sure she is smiling down upon you all. LOVE4JLK always

  21. Congratulations! I just told my husband that jennifer is finding a way to talk to us. My sister just told us that she is expecting a baby the same time as you. Jennifer us busy teaching these special babies about love and family. Sending you lots and lots of baby blessings. So incredibly happy for you.

  22. Congratulations! My baby was born on February 21st last year, so in anticipation of her birthday I have been thinking of other events from last February and have been thinking of your family quite a bit. So happy to hear this news!

  23. Jennifer knew you needed another to love while on this earth. May this new baby bring a joy to your heart you didn’t think possible! Congratulations ❤️

  24. Omg omg omg!!! I have been away for a couple months at a location with spotty Internet reception (common in rural Australia) and I have missed reading the blog immensely. Still been spreading the glitter though. But what an entry to come back to. I’m actually crying with joy as I write this. I want to say something really eloquent but I can’t find words good enough to express my happiness. A new baby seems like such a Jennifer way to bring fresh joy into your lives. I can imagine her giggling with absolute glee as she watched her new sibling begin its life. Still the best big sister out xx.
