It's a.............

BOY!!!!!! And boy are we excited. Most of us were hoping for another little boy, with the exception of Grace. She really wanted a little sister. It took her a whole 1 minute (or less) to be happy about having a little baby brother, however. Emilie really likes that the family will be even now, 3 boy and 3 girls. Elijah was so cute about it. He couldn't believe it at first, he thought we all might be teasing. When we got in the car he started singing the sweetest little song about getting to have a little brother. I think this brother is going to be so good for Eli. He is really a very nurturing boy and he loves his little cousin Boston. He is excited that one day he will get to share a room with his brother, just like the girls do. Aaron was very smiley. It was cute. Now we all have to be PATIENT in waiting to meet this little guy. I wish I knew how to get an ultrasound picture on here for you all to see. He (the baby) looks healthy and my due date has stayed the same, July 4th. We got to see his little mouth opening and shutting. It almost looked like he was making fish faces. This made the kids laugh. Ultrasounds are so awesome. I love that we all got to see this boy before he was even born and still being knit together in my womb. (Proverbs 139) Some one asked for a belly picture awhile back. I will post one soon. I just haven't gotten to it yet. Up and coming posts will include some info. on moving, schooling, and masters degrees. This will keep you guessing!

Horray! That's such great news, Anna! I'm so excited for your family. Babies are such blessings.

I'm sure Boston will be thrilled to have another boy cousin! Perhaps you guys could get some chickens or a sheep or something to keep Boston's new brother/sister and *goat* company! :-)
