i really like: BIG active chubby baby BOYS

Critter ch.1 p.1
and it's a good thing too since that's what we are having again. there is no doubt about it. the first thing we saw on the screen was a little boy part and the doctor said, "yep, no doubt about it-- he is very much a boy!" :)

also, he measures big (just like his BIG brother) and he is VERY very active (just like his big brother was and is).... i feel exhausted and excited just thinking about my future with these two pups.

and as i drove away from the appointment by myself (thomas reluctantly had to head out for work in the other car) i sobbed and sobbed... i could barely see the road... i feel so grateful and overwhelmed to be trusted with these two special boys. i promise to do all i can to help them become the individuals they were intended to be.

Congrats on another baby boy! That is so exciting!!! Do you have a name picked out for this one?

Stephanie J. Robertson said...

Congrats!! I thought it would be so fun to get another boy after Hema. How fun for your boys! How far apart will they be in age??

CONGRATS on another baby boy! I want a boy. BADLY. But, I think I can wait a while.
I cried a lot while I was prego too. It made me feel better afterwards though.

Natalie said...

Awesome Steph!! I tried to text you back today, but I am such an old fogie texter I don't think it worked. We are so excited for you and Thomas!

Stephanie J. Robertson said...

AJ said...

so happy for you guys

Brady and Rachel said...

Congrats again! Brothers really are the best. I didn't have two brothers next to each other in my family, so I was excited to get to have that with Tayson and Camden and they really have become best buds this past year. They are so fun. I'm glad you guys get to be in Hawaii with those active boys. I would love to be where I could let the boys play outside more often than not. I'm already wishing for the weather to warm up. A small apartment with two active boys is always overwhelming. This little one inside me is much less active right now than his/her brothers were, so we'll see. I figure either way (boy or girl) we are in for a Big Surprise, I can tell this one is already going to have a different personality than our other two. We're still gonna plan on another boy though, which is fine with me. I can't help but feel overwhelmed though at the idea that I need to prepare these boys to stay on the straight path and be ready and willing to serve the Lord when they turn 19. This world is insane! I'm sure there is a lot of responsibility with both genders though. I think the Lord is definitely preparing his army though.

Congratulations Stephanie! Two boys close together is lots of fun. Can't wait to see your new one and hear all about him!

Becky said...

Yay! Boys are so much fun! Congrats Stephanie! We are so happy for you!

Audra said...

Congrats! You will have your hands full!

Carrie said...

YAAAAY! I love having two boys, although i'll probably cry if I have another one next. And then I'll be happy after the shock wears off because having my boys be friends is the awesomest thing ever! That's right, the AWESOMEST! You really will love it. Congrats.

I"m so excited ! YAY! congrats!

lizzie said...

Lucky girl. You get to be surrounded by boys who adore you all the time. What could be better?

Stephanie J. Robertson said...

TanuvasaCasa said...

WOOHOO!!! How exciting. As you know, I completely adore my little boys and I love how much they love me back. Yes, I'm selfish! Boys are great, and boys together are so much fun. I have 4 brothers right in a row in my family and they needed each other. Even now in their 30's they are so close. YAY, lucky Ambrose!!!
