It’s a….

little man! 🙂 We’re really excited and I’m not sure what to think about a boy… my mind has been in “girl land” for the last 3 & 1/2 years! We had a great appointment and as far as we know everything looked great and healthy. He’s measuring a week ahead which doesn’t surprise us… both the girls did at this point too! Thankfully all the L.D.’s (Little Debbies) didn’t have too much effect on my L.B.’s (as in lbs) … I thought for sure I’d break a record for weight gained in a month… that’ll probably be next month! Anyway, just thought I’d share the exciting news! We’re thrilled and I’m even more thrilled for Justin, he’s a great father to the girls and I know he’ll be a great father to his son! 🙂 It even sounds weird saying it!!

    Well well well, what praytell are we going to do with a “little man”? Morgan and Paige are going to be dressing him up in princess costumes and bossing him around like he’s a little slave.
    good news: David Corrie & Daniel Headlee turned out pretty well… I’m sure “boy stick” will be perfect!
    Mommasis is elated!

    I can’t believe I haven’t talked to YOU about this yet, but we are SO PUMPED that you are going to have a little boy!! It gives me some hope that we are not going to have to have 5 kids trying to have one ourselves. I am just kidding (sort of), but the Lord knows what we need!
