Numero Cinco Omega Baby Update

Hear ye, Hear ye, the ultrasound lady has spoken and we now know with a great degree of confidence the gender of our next child.  We were also pleased to verify that most importantly the baby is healthy and should be just fine.  Our tradition is to go purchase something that will demonstrate the gender of the baby so that our other kids can guess by looking at it, ie. baseball themed clothes = boy, pink hearts clothes = girl etc.  Today we went to the store right after the Ultrasound and as we were walking into the store we ran into this license plate which ironically enough demonstrated what we were in for:

You got it, we're blessed to have another boy making it a total of 1 Girl and 4 boys in the family.  That will amount to:
4 Missions
4 Eagle Scout Projects
12 Pinewood derby cars
Countless super activivities

It's a good thing Aaron is into Scouting because he's going to be doing a lot of it.

McKenna is really excited to maintain her status as sole princess in the family so we're glad the pressure isn't on to "try" for a girl next time around ......  what the heck, did I just say next time around?

Woohoo! Congratulations on another handsome boy! I'm sure he'll be as cute and fun as the others! Odd numbers are disconcerting. Six is nice and round.

WOOHOOOO!!! Congrats!!! I'm sure McKenna would've like to have a little sister to play with, but still cool being the ONLY princess in the house! LOL

Tammie said...

Yay for McKenna!

Um, you DID say next time! Wow Alicia, I'm just not worthy. Congrats ya'll- can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks!

Joe will ultimately be very pleased he has a "best cousin" in the picture!

congrats! at least you have loads of boy stuff. and boy toys .

whoohoo for Mckenna. assuring her own room for the duration someday. Joy will be very jealous because she will never have her own room EVER. and she begs for one every day. it's sharing with one sister or another. and then there's the constant disappointment of having to watch someone wear your old favorite outfit/dress/shoes.we have lots of tears over that here too.

now that i look at it , you guys are super lucky you'll have 4 boys.

Camille said...

Yeah for 4 boys! You know that's what I'm all about! Congrats you guys!
