The Big Reveal!

Well, today was the day. Time to meet Baby #3.

I tried to play it cool, but I was so excited I could hardly stand it! We let Eveley run out some of her energy outside before going in for the appointment. Here we are just moments before the Big Reveal!





The first question from the tech was whether we wanted to know the baby's gender. We said, "Of course! No surprises for us!" Within a few seconds, she said, "Whoa. He is really active." "He?" we said. Bob and I looked at eachother. "Is it a boy?" I asked. "Oh yea," she said, and showed us "the turtle."

Wow! That's really all I can say. Although we would have been tremendously blessed by a boy or girl, I truly longed for a boy. In no way will this little booger "replace" or "take the place" of Robbie. I'm sure you understand that is impossible. But I am so thankful that the Lord answered my prayers for another son. He is perfectly healthy, likes to keep his arms up by his head (just like his mama and older brother), and is very active (just like his sister)! Praise the Lord!

Here he is!
