Isn't She Lovely?

I am in love with this sweet face.  We did not get 3D ultrasound pictures of the other kids because they all had their faces hidden.  But, this is quite something.  Technology is AMAZING.  We have a lot to be thankful for.  Our baby is totally healthy and beautiful.  We now know that our fourth child is a girl.  This is much to our son's chagrin.  He had a big meltdown that he would not have a brother.  We explained to him that it was good to be the only son, because it meant special one on one father-son time with Daddy.  My husband was a little worried too.  As he told the ultrasound technician, "You don't understand. Our daughters are really beautiful and I think we are all in a lot of trouble."  Then of course, he worried about paying for weddings and or a dowry to a religious order.  But, I said we just need to teach our daughters to sew and bake cakes and arrange flowers and all the sisters can help with each others weddings.  This is a good thing to have three girls in a row.

Congratulations again Renee! She really IS beautiful. Makes my heart hurt to think of all the mothers who never get to see their precious babies before they make a horrible decision....

Sorry, I did not mean to bring up something like that when this post is all about JOY JOY JOY! *except of course you having to explain to Alex that he isn't getting a brother. Remind him he could still be getting one in the future!
