The Baby in Mommy's Tummy is...

"Out?!" Caleb said as we told the kids about our ultrasound results!

::EDIT AS OF 10:20PM:: I've turned on complete comment moderation to the entire blog. I think it's quite unfortunate that the comments have turned into public service announcements and we are not able to just simply enjoy our news for the day. Unfortunately some seem to think that it is their business to "gently" remind me how to parent my children. So as of right now, comments are going to be moderated and deleted as Shane and I see fit. I'm sorry- I wish we could have all just celebrated together without the controversy, but once again, some people have no tact- even when they try to hide it in gentleness.  ::End Edit::

We were trying to get them to guess if the baby is a brother or a sister, but he didn't quite get the point of the game. Thankfully, the baby in mommy's tummy is still, in fact, in mommy's tummy!

Now, for the news that you have all so anxiously been awaiting!

The ultrasound today was extremely emotional for me. After a very thorough look at every part of our Rainbow, it was determined that our baby is 100% healthy!

We sat and watched those 4 beautiful chambers pump blood. The cord is a 3 vessel cord, all the parts of the brain are developing nicely, there are no problems with the spine, limbs, stomach, kidneys, or size of the baby! Everything is developing as it should be, and the doctors are confident that we will NOT find anything wrong with baby's heart when we go for a fetal Echo in 4 weeks.


Needless to say, Shane and I are breathing a sigh of relief tonight. We are praising God for allowing our child to be healthy and developing the way it should be!

And on to the less important, but also equally as exciting news!

Caleb, Hannah, and Joshua are going to be big brothers and sister to another.....








BOY!!!!!!!!!!



We are over the moon to be welcoming boy number 3 into our family!

Thank you all so much for your comments, texts, emails, messages, and prayers throughout today. We have felt and appreciated every single one of them!


Psalm 100 says:
" Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
 Worship the LORD with gladness;
   come before him with joyful songs.
 Know that the LORD is God.
   It is he who made us, and we are his;
   we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
  Enter his gates with thanksgiving
   and his courts with praise;
   give thanks to him and praise his name.
 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
   his faithfulness continues through all generations."
