Baby on the Way

Well, I guess it's about time I give a little update on this wee babe that will soon be joining our family -- I can hardly believe we've hit (and passed!) the halfway point of this pregnancy!  :o)  I feel as if time is speeding by, though that likely has a lot to do with the continually decreasing amount of time left we have with our favorite airman... I have a strong suspicion that once he boards that plane, time will seem to come to a screeching halt.  But, I'm trying not to think on that too much just yet.  For now, we are {still} working to take things one day at a time and enjoying the remaining moments we have together until his appointed departure date.  

Anyway, on to the update!  Here is baby BOY at 20 weeks -- yes, that's right!  A new little brother to add to the family!  :o)  


I have to say, Little Man was quite disappointed; he had things all planned out for a little sister.  He is not to be deterred, though, and has already started wondering if the next baby will be a girl!  We'll just have to wait and see, I guess... :o)

Yeah! I'm sooo excited!! Were the last two pics 3D? It took me a awhile to get accustomed to that type of ultrasound - but this is the first one I saw where my heart Truly melted - and I could NOT stop looking! ♥♥

I'm surprised Nathan hasn't already reassured Caleb that sisters really aren't all That great! *wink* Then again, Nathan never had any baby sisters ... so maybe it's different that way.

Can't wait to hear baby name ideas. Are you going to keep that a surprise? He'll probably have Tons of nicknames even if you don't name him 'til May! :)

Thanks for the update. I feel like I've been flittering all around ever since I found out. You sure do know how to make people smile. ;) Love ya ~ Jess

Aw, what beautiful pictures! The halfway point is one of my favorites...I'm 22 weeks now, and my ultrasound is tomorrow. Kinda late, I know! We've been dying of impatience! Danny is also hoping for a sister, guess we'll see tomorrow afternoon, will keep you posted! So excited for you and your family, and I hope you're feeling well. Praying for you as you prepare for Nathan's deployment.

I should have checked your blog before I e-mailed you, lol. Congratulations on having another sweet little boy! You are very outnumbered now aren't you? If you ever want to have some girl time you can come visit us here in Mi, but you better bring your boys because Jim is largely outnumbered in our all girl house.....I mean even the dog is female : ) Praying for you and hoping all is well!
