And the word is...

What a wonderful time we had yesterday! The appointment was in the morning at 10 am. Jeff was able to come along and so we had a family affair! It was so fun! Jo couldn't wait to go and find out if he is going to have a brother and up until we got in the room, Adie was just enjoying the family time. When we got to the hospital, both kids were asking about the hospital. What kind of place is it? What do those words say? Is this where our baby is? It was quite cute. After waiting for just a few minutes, we headed back to the room and Adie got very interested. She was curious about the monitor and started looking forward to seeing a movie of her baby! When things got started, they both thought it was pretty cool. Jeff and I were just amazed at God's creation. It never fails. Every time I've seen our children on that screen, my heart just gets bigger! I love that day. Everything looked perfect, the head was beautiful. The profile was exactly like Jo's and Adie's. The heart was perfect. We even saw a little wave of the hand! I just can't wait to hold this hand in mine. All the way down to the legs, everything was perfect. The two feet were absolutely adorable! And when we saw who this will be, our hearts were elated! It was such a mystery for so long, this day was such an anticipated day for us all. Adie wanted to know if she will have a little sister to have tea with and Jo wanted to know if he will have a brother to play sports with. Jeff and I just wanted to know which way our life is headed! We had the strongest feeling in one direction and we were so sure that this would be. What is it? Oh, what is it? When she zoomed in and we saw that our son is on his way, the whole room was filled with joy. Even Adie had a smile on her face. She seemed a little surprised and even had a few funny comments to say, but now she can't wait to meet her little brother! Jo is extatic and has already planned out the next five years of sports. He's ready to teach his little brother everything. Adie is still planning on having tea and sharing her toys with baby brother. Jeff is thrilled as well. He's looking forward to all of their boys times, the games and workin on the yard together, getting out and camping, everything that boys do. My intuition was correct. Everything inside of me was telling me that this is a boy and I knew it from about the sixth or eigth week. It is so fun for us all to have our dreams and our plans. Life is great! Now, to get ready because the next four months are going to speed by! And we also got official word on our actual due date ~ Nov 22 Thanksgiving Day!

I bet he will be as beautiful as the first two. Your kids mean so much to me, and my heart gets bigger with each one you have, too. ;-)

Since you are following my pattern, how does a girl sound next? Hee, hee! Guess I should let you have this one first.

Hugs to the whole Green clan!
