The Last Few Weeks

Most of the winter, this little guy has looked like this:

On slightly warmer days I feel okay sending his brothers outside, but I can't really get myself to send him, so he stands at the door and watches.  But, he seems to enjoy it.

Right before Christmas, we went for a very early ultrasound, just to take an extra peek.  Carter loved watching.  The other two didn't have much to do with anything, but it was fun having everyone there.  The lady who did the sonogram is saying 95% girl but said she might not buy any new clothes until the 20 week scan.  I've had a hard time following that, but if this little girl is actually a little boy, we'll be just as happy, and I'll just keep my receipts!
I don't think anyone had the reaction that Mimi did!  She had two boys and has five grandsons, so she's been waiting a long time on a girl!

She will be my parents first granddaughter, too.  So, it's been really fun seeing everyone's reactions.  Again, I guess we shouldn't get too wrapped up in it just yet, but it's hard not to!

Then we had Christmas with Mimi and Pops and got a grainy family pic...

Peter got a hot new ride.
John Paul did, too!

And, Carter got a mini piano!

The best part always is being with family...

...and listening to the Christmas story.

It looks as if Jeremy will be starting a new hobby this year, too!

It's been a whirlwind December but the best kind!


  1. Sweetest family ever. I love boys, they're wittier and funnier than girls.
    Have an easy pregnancy and all the best.

  2. Thank you so much! I love boys, too! Never thought I'd love being a boy mom as much as I do!

  3. Haha, I guess Sophie hasn't met MY girls, they are pretty funny & witty. ;) What a joy it will be to see how your little men react to a baby sister. I just had my first boy after two girls & it was SO weird to shop in the boys' section after being surrounded by ruffles & pink for 5 years. It's been really fun to learn about being a 'boy mom' now. Can't wait to follow your journey as you learn how to be a 'girl mom'!
