It's a....

She was pretty heartbroken, but quickly warmed up to the idea. She still kisses my belly and tells me she's excited for the baby.

I was pretty sure it was a boy until the last week or so before the ultrasound. Then I just started thinking girl. Like last pregnancy, I had no gender preference. While pregnant with Emerson, I clearly stated in prayers that I really just wanted at least one boy and one girl. I have that. So whatever came next, I was 100% happy with. Truth is, once upon a time, I never thought I'd get my girl. Once I had her, I just assumed she'd always be my only one. Cliff's side of the family has an overwhelming number of males. It's a boy family.

We are excited for this little guy to enter our family! Love him already!

Instagram Roundup

A little roundup from recent happenings on my Instagram...

I told you this boy loves balls. I caught him in here. And not once, but twice.

We love going to the trail near our home. I can't stop smiling when I'm behind Emerson. Her little legs pedals so fast, and she sings the whole way. She makes up her own words, and over and over again, she'll often sing, "I'm having SO MUCH FUN!!" There is a park at our turnaround point, so we always stop and play for a bit.

Sometimes Knox and I will go on a jog while the older two are at school. His face melts my heart.

This girl is the queen of dress up. She goes through several outfits a day, and several princess dresses a day. Occasionally, she sneaks in the Mariachi costume. Why not ride your princess bike dressed as a Mariachi? 

Stone is such a good boy. He came home from school one day, and said he needed to go out rake the leaves. And so he did.

My favorite photo backdrop is Cliff's '55 Chevy. It's also the kids' favorite hangout spot. They play in the back every day.

My heart is continuously so full. I love these kids!

My Little Cheerleader

So I may totally love that she wants to be a cheerleader. Cheerleading was a huge part of teen life. I loved every minute of it. Even the minutes I didn't think I loved, I love them now as memories. 
Emerson participated in a little cheerleading camp at our high school. She got to perform 3rd Quarter at a game, and loved every minute of it. She was a bit shy at first, but warmed up quickly. 
Go Pirates!
