And Baby Makes Five


Sometime in July we'll get to meet our newest blessing. The girls, particularly Avery, are so excited. She immediately fired off several rounds of questions, mostly just repeating and clarifying what we had told her.

After a while I said, "Avery this baby isn't going to come for a long, LONG time. It won't be until after your birthday." Amanda, who up to this point had let her sister do most of the talking, piped up and said, "She not eat my birthday cake!" Uh, we'll see what we can do.


When we asked them if they wanted a brother or sister, Avery said, "It's a girl for me and a boy for Amanda." Since we haven't yet heard a heartbeat or had an ultrasound we are hoping its not some sort of child's intuition going on. One will be quite enough.

When Amanda was born Avery was barely 17 months old so it will be fun this time to have both girls old enough to share in the excitement and anticipation.

Answers to common questions, yes we will be finding out the gender and yes, I am feeling good.
