It's a BOY!

We found out today, via ultrasound, that baby number three is a boy! The tech was very certain, due to a prominent body part, that it is in fact a boy! We are excited. I was a bit nervous going into the ultrasound because I really wanted another girl. The only reason I wanted another girl is because I wanted Karis to have a sister, so she could have the special relationship my sister and I have. So, I was nervous that I would be disappointed at the news if it wasn't a girl. But, it turned out that I was not disappointed. I am just glad that, for now, everything looks good and healthy and I have a baby in there! And the more I thought about it this evening, the more excited I became. Think of how protected Karis will be from all sides with two brothers; Jesse will finally have someone to play soccer with (at least in a few years); I won't have to worry about middle child syndrome so much b/c Karis being the only girl, she is bound to get special attention; and for Matt's sake, only one wedding to pay for! Now we just need to come up with a name, we had a girl's name for sure, but we're not so sure on the boy name. But, we have plenty of time to think about it!

I also think that you and Karis will have an even more special relationship as mother-daughter! And remember - boys don't steal clothes from one another! :) Hope you are feeling well!
