Just one princess in our home...for now

Today was the day that I found out I will be having my fourth boy. It was so fun watching this little baby boy moving around like crazy in there. His little legs and little arms were just so precious. I loved watching him. Still every time I am having an ultrasound I just can't hold back the tears. I feel honored to be "housing" this little one. I am grateful for his desire to come to our family. I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to raise him and to teach him and love him to pieces.

I was totally prepared for a boy. Totally. I did however, really think it was a girl for so long. I would call her and refer to her as Avery. So would the kids. They would all refer to her as baby sister. I guess we need to nip that in the bud soon. Even though I was wishful it was a girl so Jadeyn would not be the lone solider around here, I could not imagine it any other way. I do however really feel very strongly that there will be another girl in our family so let's just hope that I can quickly forget how miserable this pregnancy has been so I am game for another one.:)

I am excited to meet my sweet little baby boy number 4 and hold him and stare into his eyes and thank him over and over and over for being my son. I have more love for him already than I ever though was possible and I am so grateful for that.

Congratulations!!!

You know, if we put all our kids together they would even each other out.

And your lone princess and my lone prince could commiserate.
