The verdict is in...

It's a BOY!!!
We are so excited to welcome a new little baby boy to our family. Zach thought that we were having a boy from the beginning, but I thought it was another girly. I didn't have a feeling or anything, I was just used to having girls. My mom came with us to the ultrasound and when we found out that it was a boy, we ALL squealed, "Oh my goodness!!!" Let me tell you, this little man left nothing to the imagination. We would be looking at his legs, then suddenly- Oh look, his little boy parts! So we were able to confirm, time and time again that, yes indeed, the little baby that is inside my tummy is a boy. As we left, the receptionist told us that she knew of at least one family that was excited about the gender of their baby because she could hear us all the way to the receptionist desk. Oops, we might have been a bit too loud. Oh well!
Our tradition is that after we find out the baby's gender, we go pick out the coming home from the hospital outfit. We went back home, picked up my daddy and the girls, and went shopping! My sweet mom and dad bought us the bedding for our son, sports themed. Zach and my dad loved it! They were the ones who picked it out. As we looked for baby's coming home outfit, I would find an outfit, Zach would say, "Eh." So we would keep looking. Finally we narrowed it down to two outfits, but Zach couldn't decide which one he thought our son's personality would be more like- khakis and a button up shirt, or a romper. We ended up buying both. It has been interesting to see Zach's reaction with him knowing that he is going to have a son. He has been very involved in the clothing decisions, the bedroom decorations, name, EVERYTHING! Not that he wasn't involved with the girls decisions, but I feel like it matters so much more to him this time around. He says it is because he wants our son to know that he is a MAN and to not be completely girly being surrounded by women. So cute to watch him. He is also super excited for me to have a mamma's boy so I know what it feels like, since he has two very extreme daddy's girls. Either way, WE ARE THRILLED TO BE HAVING A SON!!!

3, 3 and under

Yes that is right! We are having another baby! It has been a roller coaster for sure! I'm due July 16, 2012, which means that I'm about 13 1/2 weeks along. We found out I was pregnant over 2 months ago, but I was on risk of miscarriage, so we didn't want to say anything. Especially with having a miscarriage 2 months before conceiving again. Yeah, we were not planning on getting pregnant so quickly after the miscarriage, but Heavenly Father has His plan. We weren't doing anything to prevent it, but we weren't trying either.
Back to pregnancy.
Because I miscarry a lot, they put me on progesterone. I will be on that stuff until I'm 14 weeks! Not fun! But hey, only a few days left. We have had plenty of scares with this baby, but as of right now, everything is going great! I'm so excited to welcome a new bundle of joy to our family. We may not be a perfect family, and I may not be the ideal mom, but that baby will receive more loving than he/she can handle for sure!!

There are going to be so many changes with 3 babies:
A minivan... I never thought that day would come. Me, a minivan momma! Woo gunner.
Two girls in one room... I hope they don't hurt each other, and learn how to sleep!
Officially outnumbered... There will be more children than adults in our home. Heaven help us!
Sleepless nights... again.
Return of the cow... yes that is me. How am I going to juggle nursing plus taking care of two toddlers???
I'm sure there are more, but for right now, that is enough for me. Yay for baby #3!!
