The News Is Here!

We are having a BOY!!! We are so excited about the new addition that will be entering our lives sometime around January 2, 2008 (give or take a few days!).

I had my followup doctor appointment today and was told that the baby looks healthy. My placenta was lying a little low, so they will do another ultrasound around 26 weeks to see if the placenta moved - the same thing happened with Brady. That will be a nice treat to see my baby again before he is born!
We have been praying about a name for him, but do not have one yet - but we still have lots of time before we have to name him! I am so excited to meet him and to see what he looks like - will he resemble his brother? We will find out relatively "soon".

In the meantime, I have lots to keep me busy - we need to decide how we are going to paint Brady's "Big Boy" room. We were recently thinking of painting the walls blue, but we may change our mind and do a theme - I will keep you posted!
Anyway, I think that a few of the "funniest" questions that people are already asking me is, "Do you think that you will have another child?" or "Do you think that you will try for a girl?" It makes me laugh because I have no idea what it is like to have two children - so, I will first see what that is like and pray and ask the Lord if we are to have anymore. He may say that we are to have more, or He may tell us that our family is complete with the two boys. I love both of my boys and will be happy if they are all of the children that God has designed for this family.

Congratulations! You will absolutely love having two boys so close together. I'm sure that you've seen how outrageous and fun it can be with your sister's two. Mine are best friends and no one can make the other laugh like they can. It's a constant joy to see them together - even when I have to send them to their room to contain the chaos :)

People still ask us if we're going to "try for the boy" and our youngest is going to be 6 soon!

Woo hoo! Now I can tell people. :) I think 4 boys is going to be a blast!

You know me...we would have had a blast - boy or girl.

Congrats! I wanted to tell you that I have a friend who paints kids rooms. She did Laney's nursery. She is really good. If you are interested I can give you her number. She is an artist and she attends CCC.
