Fourth Time Around

Our Fifth pregnancy, actually . . .
And longest stretch between babies
Our first spring time due date . . . As we've only known new babies in the fall and winter months.

Lots of excitement and plenty of questions coming from three curious boys.

"Who put that baby in your tummy and how's it coming out?" Leon wondered, first thing the morning  after getting news of another baby on the way.

"I thought you were just getting fat" was Arlo's very direct response. He seemed relived there was a reason behind this expanding belly.

"Push it out right now. Just do it. I wanna see IT!!!" Was Rex's contribution after hearing a very brief and simple explanation of how the baby comes out "with pushes."  He still thinks waiting another few months is downright ridiculous.



All I am sure of, is there is plenty of love brewing in the roots of their anticipation.
Every one of them showing new joy in welcoming another baby.


Soon enough boys.

  8. Can I be selfish and start off by saying that I cannot wait for an opportunity to photograph you before offering the obligatory congratulations? Okay, I said it. And now, congratulations. And also, you're crazy... In the maddening kind of way that people like Kerouac make appear desireable and infectious. Lots of love to you and your sweet, sweet family.

    1. You can totally be "selfish" - especially if it involves family photos. I'm SO excited about that.

      Hope your healing and feeling better!

  10. Oh goodness! So exciting.
    The boys comments made me laugh so hard.
    & then I got to thinking that if a baby girl pops out of your belly, they may not know what to do. ;)
    Ha. Congrats, hope you are doing well, and can't wait to see more of this sweet, little ones journey.
    much love,
    colie.

    1. No, I really would not know what to do with a girl at this point. I suppose I could learn quick?

  14. Congrats on your new baby. It is so exciting to be carrying a new growing life in your belly. I have 2 kids a boy and a girl and when I was pregnant and didn't know it my son would point to my belly and say baby baby, he knew before we did know for sure. it is so cute to hear the reactions of your boys. Congrats again and are you hoping for a girl?
