Here we go!

I'm happy to report that we are having another boy! Yep, in spite of how sure I was that this one was a girl (I feel completely different than I did with Charlie!), it's a boy for sure. Though I'm scared to death of being a mom of two such little boys (Charlie really tries to kill himself and destroy our home daily :)), this is truly wonderful news. I'm sure they will love having each other to play with and fight with and at least I won't be torn between sword fighting and princess dresses! :)

He received a clean bill of health - everything looks good and he is developing normally and on schedule for his 2/21 arrival date. This might sound trite to some of you but a baby growing and developing normally really is a miracle and with Charlie, we were informed of potential kidney problems during this ultrasound so it was such a relief to hear "Your baby looks great!" God is so good to bless us with this new baby and we stand amazed at his greatness in forming him.

Psalm 139...
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

Congratulations! We are so happy for you guys! At least with another boy, you don't have to buy new clothes or bedding. You already have it all! Now you can really splurge on that double stroller! By the way, have you checked out the Phil and Ted double stroller? It looks really cool... a bit pricey, but probably worth every penny.

Thanks for sharing your big news last night. I am thankful that you are Amy Claire have taken it upon yourselves to replenish the world with adorable little boys. Save one of them for emma, okay? And teach them good theology and all that, so that she'll have a solid hubs, okay?

So glad about the positive ultrasound! And if this baby is half as cute as Charlie, your house's cute factor will be flying off the scale!
