My heart fell in love all over again this morning as I watched our baby BOY flip flop around on the ultrasound screen. He's quite the thumb sucker already (Hooray for self-soothing babies...the BEST sleepers) and has very looooonnnnggg legs, according to what the technician said. He had no problem showing us what gender he was.
 
 Honestly, I was a bit surprised. We all were. We thought for sure we would carry on the line of girl, boy, girl, boy, GIRL. God wanted this precious little one to be a boy and we're already giddy thinking of some strong, manly names for him.
 
I have to admit, lately I've been oohing and ahhing over anything baby pink, going through the girls' old baby clothes, quilts and oh-so-cute shoes. I was looking forward to having someone to dress up again. I also had a girl name I was in love with (a few even). However, the Lord knows best and as I watched this little man doin' his thing on the screen today, my heart melted again and he already has a place in our family. I know that he and Isaac will be close buddies (especially because they won't be quite two years apart). All of the kids were excited except for Norah who wanted a sister. Poor girl. Maybe I'll hold on to the pink clothes and girly name. Who knows. {wink, wink}   :)

aww! I had my ultrasound this morning too! What a coincidence! Turns out we are having a little girl! And this is our 5th as well! We are following a pattern...we have boy, girl, girl, boy, and now another girl! How exciting! Blessings and a Merry Christmas to your family!

Congrats! Perhaps you could rub some of the boy luck on us. We have number six on the way and we already have four girls. :) Hubby thinks it's another girl. I told him it is a boy. We will see.
