Baby FOUR is......

The guessing game has come to an end as we got a peek at our precious little babe Thursday and found out the gender of our fourth little one as a family today.  I applaud all of you Moms and Dads out there who are able to wait until birth!!  Seriously.  That takes some amazing strength.  I tried hard with the third, and this time I just knew that I did't want another ugly cry meltdown over it.  Haha!

Seeing this precious little one the other day was the biggest treat of all.  Even the fourth time through, I'm just in awe at technology and the beauty of God's creation.  Even more exciting that this was Daniel's first time seeing baby number 4, and hearing baby's heartbeat live rather than a recording on my phone from a doctor's appointment.

This sweet little face just has me an awe.  They estimate that baby only weighs 10 ounces.  Can you believe the beauty of God's creation?  Just AWE! 

Over the last 19 weeks, my ideas for a gender reveal have changed and evolved and in the last couple weeks we had to change our original plan because space and time was not on our side.  With a little improvisation though, we're super excited that we were still able to have a little fun with the reveal and find out together as a family of 5.  (Which was the end goal!)  They don't allow children under the age of 7 in the ultrasound room at the doctor's office (totally understandable) so the important thing was just being surprised with the big boys and having them involved.

I have no doubt that many of you just scrolled right through the above in excitement.  I would probably do the same if I'm really honest with you, so without further ado, baby number four is....

20 weeks on Monday!!  So we are half way to meeting our first baby girl.  We can't wait to meet you Evelyn!! Keep praying that she grows healthy and strong.  


  1. Congratulations on your GIRL!! They are different creatures and a mighty gift from God. Enjoy each and every moment. All my love to you Kid.


  2. I'm so excited for you all!!! And she will have a girl cousin her age :)

  3. An amazing gift from God; I love my little girl to death, and there's nothing like it for a daddy and his little girl. Daniel isn't going to know what hit him.
