Another beautiful, precious, sweet bundle of blue will be completing out family this Spring and we couldn't be more thrilled. With full, gracious hearts we watched our son kick, wave and roll as the technician moved the wand over my belly.
Since this will likely be our last pregnancy, it was fifteen minutes that I will savor for the rest of my life. The anxiety, the anticipation. Watching my husband stare in sheer awe at another beautiful little life that we created. It's just so amazing.
We are so excited and as we walked out of the ultrasound boutique and another couple waiting to be seen exclaimed, "Well, now you'll have to have four so you can get that girl!" I just laughed.
I laughed because I can only hope that one day she will feel the sense of peace, completion and blessedness that I do, with a house full of little boys.
Over dinner we laughed at how much louder, crazier and chaotic our house will become. We dreamt of grocery bills and carloads full of sports equipment and perhaps converting our basement into a wrestling ring with padded floors.
And all the while I kept singing in my head, "And they're the three best friends that anyone could have..."
Well, what's next you ask? Let the naming wars begin!
