It's a......



I forgot to tell you! We found out what we are having about 4 weeks ago. It's a GIRL!!! I laughed and laughed for a few days because what am I supposed to do with 3 girls?!?! I was so sure it was a boy and I was right with the other 3, so I was shocked. But of course I could not be happier! Claire and Janie are such a joy to me and I feel so lucky to get another special little girl. And Claire and Janie are so lucky to get another sister! Sisters are so special and I'm excited to do our girly things together throughout life!

We were a little sad for Caleb. Hopefully someday he will have a brother, but just not quite yet. When we got home from the doctor, we were so excited to tell the kids. So, we told them it was a girl and Claire jumped up and down with excitement and gave me a huge hug! Caleb dropped to the floor and started bawling. It broke my heart and I cried too. I didn't cry because it was a girl. I cried because I didn't realize how badly he had wanted a brother. Often times Claire speaks for Caleb and he gets overlooked and I try really hard to work on having Claire not talk for him. But this just reminded me that I didn't even know he had wanted a brother. I felt terrible that I didn't know. He's happy now that a baby is coming and loves to suggest awesome names for her like: Rylee, Rylee and Rylee. (That's his best friend's name who is a girl.) Poor little Caleb is going to be outnumbered, but at least he has the best dad around! Our family is growing fast and I am having the absolute time of my life! Feeling thankful...
