The votes are in....IT'S A GIRL!!


I think I'm still in shock! I was fully prepared to welcome a 3rd little man into the family but lo and behold IT'S A GIRL!! I asked the poor doctor so many questions "just to make sure", he probably thinks I have zero confidence in him. The boys have asked and prayed for two little sisters for well over a year now. What a joy to tell the boys that the Lord heard their prayers and answered.... first a sister from Guatemala and now a sister from mommy's tummy : ) We are ALL so excited! I've always hoped that if ever we had a girl we would have two because I can't imagine my life without MY sister and I would want the same thing for my daughter. So, I thank God for giving our little Guatemalan princess a SISTER!!
Although I may not be extremely "round" yet, at the request of my sweet friend Karie, here's a pic of my growing belly and for those who haven't seen me in a while : ) I also thought I'd share a pic I had taken with my sister recently who also is expecting her 4th ( just a little sooner than me : ) Her belly is little cuter.....she's being induced in a couple days.

Oh.....and I'm sure everyone is wanting to know names. Names are very important to Dave and me so these names have been well thought out. We actually have quite good stories for both girls' names but I'll save that for another time. So here they are........Our little princess from Guatemala will be named SARAH and our little princess I'm carrying with me will be named EMILY. More details later : )

Please keep praying for both Sarah and Emily!
love,
Marianne
