It's a BOY!!!!



Today we went to Mexico and had an ultrasound. My sister, Ashlea is here, so she got to come along with us. I really wanted her to able to come with us and was so glad it worked out. Before we went, Nate wasn't sure he wanted to know whether we were having a boy or girl. But once we were in the room, and the doctor was checking things out, Nate called out, "It's a boy!" and then he questioned the doctor because he wasn't sure. The doctor said he would show us, and he ran the machine over that part of the baby, and sure enough, there was something there!!! We were just in shock. And I still am so surprised, just wondering, after having three girls, what it will be like, raising a man child. The measurements and pictures showed that everything is looking good, and that is a lot to be thankful for. I know there are many parents who don't receive that kind of news, and my heart goes out to them.
So we are looking forward to meeting this new member of our family. The girls are excited. They wanted a baby brother. And hopefully they still will, once he's here!
