Baby #3 is a…..

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve already heard the news! Baby #3 is a…

BOY!! We are just so so excited! I’ll be honest, I want to experience having a daughter some day but as soon as we got confirmation it was a boy, I could not stop smiling the rest of the day!

(P.S. I’m usually posting several times per day on my instagram stories, it’s the best way to keep up with me!)

It took so so much effort to get a good picture, I’m all about the announcements so I rallied up Craig and my mom to try and get the boys to pose as I wanted them to. It was ROUGH! Maybe you can tell, there’s two tiny imperfections that would clue you in to the photoshop I had to do! It’s much easier to photoshop than it is to have two happy kids at the same time!

Here is how things really were going behind the scenes:

I’ve got the boy mom thing DOWN! I’m so excited for another one – really, I am. I’ve gotten a few well meaning comments about how disappointed I must be. That couldn’t be further from the truth. We’ve got a happy, healthy growing little boy! We’ve got all we need for hand – me – downs, third time is the charm! We’ve got this!

    Happy for the hand me downs….. my third was a third girl…… I did feel bad for her on Easter I go three dresses all alike. She wore the first two years to church 3 times a month…… the second dress for two years to church A LOT. and the third dress for two years to church. Six years of the same dress. It struck me to not buy three alike again……. hehe.

    Congratulations! A third of the way to your own baseball team. ha ha. And with the photos, at least you can do photoshop to do what you want. When you go to JC Penney Portrait Studio, you have to settle with what they take. Great job on the final photo!
    And your house will never be quiet again!

    Congratulations!!! Healthy is more important than gender!! It is a huge plus that you have all the hand-me-downs for this one…but between your sisters and brother, you would have found girl stuff too. What a blessing! Do you have a due date yet? Did I miss that?
