i guess it frustrates me how people seem to think we tried to get a boy with dustin and i often hear 'oh you finally got your boy'. yes. we have a son. but weren't trying for a son. we just want kids. and i don't want my girls to hear that and think they're any less important because they weren't boys. so instead of dustin getting a little brother, caitlyn gets a little sister. and i'm sure she'll be a great big sister. and dustin will be a great big brother. doesn't matter if it's a boy or a girl. :0) we're so extremely blessed with what we've been given and wouldn't change any of it.
but i also think it's okay to pray for a boy or girl. if that makes sense. because after having caitlyn i did pray to god about having a boy. and that if it's his will i wanted a boy. or to let me know if i already did. because at that point we only had one baby in heaven. who i really do feel is a boy. and lo and behold a few months later we found out we were pregnant again...and it ended up being a boy. so god answered my prayer that time.
this time i prayed for a baby. i just wanted a baby. ((and i actually prayed that both times before this baby as well)) and i'm so thankful to be having a baby on earth this time. and this baby has an older brother for sure. dustin DOES have a little brother for sure. he just beat us to heaven! and then the other baby we don't know what the gender was, so maybe it's TWO little brothers for dustin and THREE older brothers for baby e. regardless of it all...god is good. and his plan is SO very very good.
i'm so thankful for the past 11 months of rollercoaster-ness life. it was almost a year ago already that we found out we were pregnant. and then lost that baby a mere month later. i can't believe the things god has shown me and took us through. it's been truly amazing to see the good of all of it. ((and i'm STILL working on that post. so i'm not going to go on about it here. i have a post about it, i promise!))
so that's that. baby e is a girl.
and i'm not sure about if we'll share the name, not because i'm mean like that, but because we have to agree on a the name before sharing it!! but i will say evaleigh is at the top of my list. :0) and now that i know for sure for sure for SURE it's a girl...i can work on shaun liking it as much as i do. even though he did say yesterday it really doesn't matter. lol.
i'm so blessed to share this with you guys!! thanks for being here to share it with!!
