And then there were four!

We are super excited to announce that we are expecting #4 the week of Thanksgiving! I joke with my mom that we planned this so she can watch the other three kiddos during her break from school...ok, we didn't really think about the dates, we just knew we wanted to have another one. The girls are elated...Easton has no clue what is about to happen. He gets a little jealous of the girls, so we will see if he will be like Katelyn--who cried, and cried, and cried...and still cries when little Easton came along.
Some common questions that I am getting:
1. Do you know how this happens? Yes, we are well aware of how babies are conceived.
2. Is this your last? I don't know. We wanted to have at least 4 kids, however it is in God's hands. We are not big fans of birth control.
3. Are you crazy? Don't have have enough? No, I don't think I am crazy yet....:)
4. What do you want to have? Well I believe the gender has already been determined. We will find out in late July sometime. I am not one for surprises. :) I am not going to prepare a room for this one. If it is a girl, she will get Easton's boy room and then Easton will move into the girl's room until this baby is old enough to be out of a crib. We have a 4th bedroom, but I really hate to give it up at this point. I am sure Easton will have fun bunking with the girls.
5. How come you told people so early? Aren't you worried something might happen to the baby? Ok--kind of hard for a 4 year old to keep a secret...ever had one? Also, if something happens to this one-- yes we will be devastated....but would we really want to be all alone? We lost one at 13 weeks and it was hands down one of the hardest things that I had to experience. I had tons of support from friends and family and could not have gotten through it without them.
So please pray that everything goes well for this one.
6. Oh my goodness-- how are you going to pay for college tuition for all these kids? Not worried at all...hasn't even really worried us. Funny how people bring it up all of the time. Lord willing, not all of our kids will want to go to college. If they do, we will be supportive in their decisions if they are going for something they actually need--like a certificate to practice or work in a certain field. I paid for my own education without loans and Sean paid for his...why not make our kids do the same:)

Psalm 127:3-- Children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
