Coming May, 2013...
Baby Bates #5!!!
As our family sat in the ultrasound room this week, we got to see our newest little blessing on the black and white screen and was he/she ever moving. We got the full show! :) The technician tried to see if the baby was a boy or a girl, but there was no 100% decision. From what I saw, it looks as if we're leaning GIRL and that would carry on our girl, boy, girl, boy, GIRL line nicely, but whatever the outcome, we're happy that we saw fingers and toes, a sweet profile, lots of movement, hiccups, a great heartbeat and a healthy report. Praise God.
No names permanent yet, but I am already pretty set on a girl's name. We may need boy name suggestions so throw them at us. :)
Never thought that after five babies, I could fall in love all over again as I did with this one, but it's true. Each one is so special and different. With each one, we find enough love and time for. With each one, we realize what a miracle LIFE really is. With each one, we're so happy to get to know their personalities, likes, dislikes, passions, hobbies and with each one, we get the distinct privilege of helping lead them to Christ.
Feeling so blessed!

I am so happy for you all. We are expecting Baby 6 in June. Who knew? Have you been feeling a bit under the weather? I wonder now if that was the reason for a bit of the silence on the blog.

Again, happy to hear your wonderful news. Looks like we will be sharing birth stories around the same time. Or close to the same time.

Oh Wow! Congratulations! That is so exciting, I look forward to the day Zuriel has a house full of siblings.
I love looking at names, names with a good strong meaning. Here's two boys names.
Asher- Blessed, Happy
Elkan- Belonging to God
