Baby #5 is on its way!


We had some exciting news at our house today. We found out that around August 7, 2009, we will be growing by our family by one more person. Yes, we're pregnant. This baby will be bringing up the rear of our brood. We told the boys. Caden was more concerned with why Daddy had stopped putting up Christmas decorations outside. Brennen, just walked out of the room, but then re-entered to inform us that he would like a boy baby. (If you ask him about a girl baby though, he say, "I like girl babies." So go figure.) Maddox told Bob that "That was not exciting news", as Bob had claimed when starting the announcement. Then went on to say that he only wanted a boy baby. Later this evening, Maddox asked if he could pick the baby's name. He picked Jaylee. I told him that wasn't really a boy name. So, now he's decided he's "rooting" for a girl! Bob and I have decided not to find out the gender of this baby. Boy or girl doesn't really matter. I don't like it when people seem disappointed when we tell them it's another boy. No matter what, nobody's disappointed when they hold a newborn baby in their arms! I've discovered, God seems to know what I need and will flourish with far better than me. I love being a mother to the four little boys that we have. Never would have guessed that in a million years! I've decided not to question God, but just trust. It's a much easier existence!

Congratulations! To you and Bob and the boys! What a wonderful family! I had "September" in the "lisa will get pregnant" lottery ...I guess I was off a little...now there will be w new summer baby to celebrate. God is in control and occasionally He graciously allows us to feel as if we are. I can hardly wait to see Karen on Wednesday!

I understand about hating people's comments about the gender of the baby. Especially since we live in a farm community, Lee got A LOT of comments about "trying for a boy", and then disappointment when we had a girl. Hello people! We try for babies, not a specific gender. I wouldn't trade any of my three girls for the world!
