Kimberly announced the big news on her blog, Old School New Rules, last Friday (August 30). "James and I are happy to report that we are expecting our third child this winter!" she writes. "Nesting mode is starting to kick in. I've been getting rid of clutter, reconfiguring rooms, reorganizing EVERYTHING, etc...My mind doesn't stop."

"All of the craziness, exhaustion and moodiness aside, James and I are beyond elated and feeling so incredibly blessed," she continues. "Olivia and Joshua are in on the news and seem to be excited about a baby coming into the family.  And James, thank you for being the loving, caring and understanding husband and father that you are."
