It's a.....

What a blessing today has been for me. A year ago I was heartbroken, having lost a baby we named Gabriel the month before...I had wanted another boy so bad for our family...


This year when I found out that I was pregnant, I wasn't even concerned about the sex of this baby...girl or boy...didn't matter...I just wanted to get through each day and still be pregnant.

Then there is my son. When I was pregnant with Elisa and he was 3, he told me, "Mommy I prayed that God would give me a brother, but I know he is going to give me another sister." (we didn't find out the sex until she was born) And I think he has been praying for a brother since. Even when I didn't think I wanted anohter child, he would pray for a brother. So, my heart wanted so bad for him to get a brother and hear the words "It's a boy" today at my ultrasound.

What we heard was...."well, there are some boy parts right there!!!" Caleb was behind me in the room so I didn't get to see his face, but Mike did...he said he lit up...! And I, of course, cried! How blessed I am to have been given two boys and two girls...what I wanted even when I was a little girl...and the chance to be a new mommy again...And I thought how awesome God is that he heard the prayers of a precious little boy who has been praying for years for a brother...

So, here are my four!! children...though one is still in a picture...we will meet HIM!! in about 21 weeks!! God is good...and our baby boy is healthy!

(the girls really are excited...but look who has the biggest smile!)

How awesome! Congratulations! :) I read your previous post about the loss of your baby last year. March 15 is always my hardest day. We lost our first precious one on that date 10 years ago. I was 4 months along and we were just crushed. I am so happy that you get the chance to be a "new" Mom again. What an experience!

I am excited to meet the next Williams child. If he is anything like the other 3 we'll get along just fine. Gina and I are so excited for you guys, and I'm and very happy that things worked out and we get to be here in Maryville to welcome little Cougar Laserblaster Williams into the the world. (I do get to name him right?)
