Default You are all going to LOVE this...

OK, so today we had another ultrasound... and apparently our little GIRL... is an all out BOY!! ROFL So now we have our little Spencer Abram... They also moved my date up to 10/14 (ultrasound showing an a date of 10/10) instead of the original date of 10/21. I have gained a total of 8 pounds... YAY for me. Perfect! haha

Needless to say, J is VERY excited, Trent is SOOO thrilled and Emma is well... was... DEVASTATED! LOL When the tech said "OOoo, this a BOY!!" Trent yelled "SEE!!! I TOLD YOU IT WAS A BOY EMMA!" and Emma replied with arms crossed and furrowed brows "THIS IS NOT FAIR!!! WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE A BROTHER?!!!" She stomped over to the chair across the room and sulked - until I told her butt to SUCK IT UP and come here the heart beat and his its little eyes, etc... hahaha By the end she was excited, just took a little coaxing. hahaha What is funny is that was her response when she found out it was a sister. Took her a few hours to get "happy" about having another girl around. haha

Well, still life is crazy but I am getting on when I can. I miss you all!

Great news, Fire! Well great if you wanted a boy that is. My Ranger was the last one born 16 years after the 1st & 8 years after the 2nd. Built in baby sitting service. My oldest daughter was happy, the younger daughter couldn't care less as she knew she wouldn't be the baby of the family anymore. Good news/bad news.

Not bad for an old man, right?

I wish I was younger so I could rassel with my son although I can still take him in an UNfair fight. I always go for the eyes or kick toward the groin area. When he says I can't do that I tell him that I already did & there's no such word as "can't". I'd hate for him to take me down & start pounding, though.

J is gonna have a blast with Spencer!

Congrats! At least you found out now and not in the delivery room. I had friend who thought she was having a girl right up until son number 4 popped out. Tell Emma it's better to be the only girl, she won't have to share her princess status.

Miss You!!!

Exactly! I am glad I found out now... or I would have stored all my baby boy clothes and had to dig them out when the baby arrived. LOL

OH J plays with her just as hard. hahaha But we have a rule in our house - when someone says stop - they HAVE to stop. hahaha So she of course says stop before her brother. haha She'll play star wars with them and everything else... however, I would say she is still a girly girl.

I think Emma will like being the only girl for now.
