One week to go!

In one week from right now I will be at the hospital preparing to have our fourth (and final!) baby. I thought I would be sad to see the "last" pregnancy come to a close but I can honestly say I am not. This has been the longest and hottest pregnancy of all of them. I know God had a plan when he "surprised" us with this sweet baby sister but I think His bigger plan was to make me SURE I never wanted to be pregnant again. The peace that comes with knowing you are done ;)

Moseley and Chambers are eager to meet Lilly Marie. They both have clear and definite ideas of what their roles will be. They also both call her different nicknames. Moseley says, "'sister' is his and I can have Roe." Gee thanks, someone must have told him that Roe will have to potty train at some point ;) Chambers was mad we had the bassinet set up in our room. He was under the impression that "baby girl" was going to sleep with him.

Roe has no idea what is going on. I actually feel terrible for him. He is still such a baby. I just pray that we give him the love/attention a 21 month old deserves after Lilly Marie is born.

I am also a tad nervous about the surgery part. I never have been really but since this is my fourth c-section I am really hoping to heal as well as the other times. I had also hoped that IF, down the road, we had decided to have a fourth, I would have had a little more time to heal. Best laid plans and all...

We are so excited to welcome this little life changer into our world of boys. Which, by the way, doesn't just include us. The boy thing is a family wide phenom. Kevin has a brother (no sisters), I have a brother (no sisters). My Aunt only has a son and we have only godsons! Our lives are boy to the max and we love it. This little girl will certainly change our lives.

As much as I am ready to have this girl right now I am thankful for the next 6 days of prep.

And as Kevin says, enjoy it now because once she is born, "she is all mine!"

And we're back!

Ok here is where I promise to be a better blogger... Wait for it... Nope, not gonna happen. Oh well ;) I will try to update more often but my life is crazy busy these days so that is really all I can say.

An update on the boys...

Moseley just turned 5 and is helpful and smart and in a wonderful stage. He also can read which blows my mind! He starts Kindergarten in the fall which is both exciting and very sad. This is the official start to his 13 yrs of lower education and then who knows how many of higher. Did I mention he is helpful? It is essential to the function of our household and I am grateful!

Chambers is three. That should explain a lot but in case it doesn't I will expand. He is adorable. He is inquisitive. He is smart and he is THREEVIL! He uses his manners a lot and flashes his dimple which makes me melt. Then two seconds later he has smashed his brothers ice block that took all night to freeze. It drives me nuts. It really confuses someone who likes consistency! But I love him to pieces and can't imagine living in a quiet, calm world where he doesn't exist.

Roe is a sweet little baby. Yes, he is 20 months and so should be closing in on 2 but he isn't. He still wobbles when he walks. He signs more than talks. He is very, very babyish. I like to think his stability and verbal skills will improve with his tubes being put in. I actually don't care if they do. I like him being my baby. I like holding him. I am now realizing just how short the boys babyhood really is and I just want to drag is out.
