This is what I have had to tell myself the last few weeks. We had an ultrasound about a month ago and it was confirmed yesterday ("without a dobt" were the exact words from the tech) that we are having a little girl at the end of August. HOLY COW! I was convinced I was having a boy. First of all, because the Lord is infinitely wise and so I thought he wouldn't possibly give me a girl to raise, and secondly, because my pregnancy was just about the same as with our Cole-man. Well, God is still infinitely wise, of course, and has chosen this for our family, so I have had a lot of mindset "tweaking" to do.
We are excited about what God has for us with the new addition of a little girl to the family. Caleb is going to be such a great dad to a little girl. He will show her how a woman should be treated, and what a Man of God truly looks like. Even though Cole has no idea what is coming his way, he is going to be a great big brother. We found that out in the keys when he fell in love with Abby Adams! I told him yesterday on our way to the ultrasound that we were going to see the baby, and he looked at me with his huge brown eyes and said "ABBYYYYYYY!" Poor thing was pretty disappointed.
We are pretty sure we are going to name her Gioia which is pronounced "joy-ya". We are still undecided on a middle name, so if you have any suggestions, please feel free to let us know!!! Also if you have any good suggestions about how to have a newborn and a toddler in a 2 bedroom house, let me know that too. Our house is getting really small really fast!
We are eagerly anticipating summer. Time at the beach and the zoo thanks to Luma and Papa! We wont be going to many places so we hope you all can come see us!
For those of you who are not on facebook, here is a video of our little guitar hero. He is so fun.
