The scales are tipped. ..

After a not-so-fun and emotionally and physically draining first trimester, I was a little more anxious about the 20 week ultrasound for our # 7 baby.  John and I went in last week and were so pleased to see a healthy, wiggly little baby, with no seen problems.  To me, it was an answer to prayer and another tender mercy from The Lord.

And we're having a boy!  With 3 of each gender, John and I really didn't have any preference. . . until  I held my sister in law's brand new baby boy last week.  Then it hit me that two other sisters had just had baby boys this past 5 months.  I couldn't be happier!

The kids were all dying to know the baby's gender when they got home from school.  I typed up the poem, Snakes and snails, and puppy dog tails, That's what little boys are made of. Then I cut it up into puzzle pieces, and put each puzzle piece into a white helium balloon.  The kids all took guesses, then we popped the balloons and put together the puzzle.  

Within minutes, the kids started asking about how the bedroom situation would change, who is sharing with who, who gets the empty bedroom. . . Then what to name the baby.  They were all excited.  We ended our night with a lot of blue candy and treats. It was a fun, memorable evening!
