A family announcement in pictures

One night things were going well…


One thing led to another and… well you know…


One thing led to another and then there was THIS!


Today we went and “officially” had it confirmed. You may be wondering, “Is it another girl?” While we’re not sure, there are two things that happened that may be of interest:

  • The doctor heard the heartbeat… the very fast heartbeat. She looked at me and said, “Dad, it may be another girl!” (An old wives tale says that the faster the heartbeat, the more likely it is to be a girl.)
  • When we got back in the van we turned on the radio. The very first thing we heard was a lady who was calling in to a talk show. She said, “My parents had five girls…”

So here’s what I know:

  1. A little “kissy kissy” is the first step to a little “baby baby”.
  2. We are going to have five children! (And we don’t plan on stopping there, but that’s for another day…)
  3. If “signs” mean anything, I could be the father of a girl’s dorm… and I LOVE it!

So there it is… we are going to be parents again! Yahoo!

  3. Mate – you are the MAN. Congratulations! I am so happy for you both, you are great parents and I look forward to sending my boys over to hang wit’ your ladies… 😉

  4. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!! I don’t know what to say! I wouldn’t have thought that with 4 young ladies in the house there was time to “think” of a 5th one! I guess when you are good at something, why stop!……PARENTING, I was talking about parenting!

  5. Sherri,
    I was just wondering? Did this happen prior to the
    shaved head look? I see that Paul is getting back to his old self. hmmmmmm
    Your house is surely blessed!

  6. Woo-hoo! Congrats! Are you saving for their weddings yet?! Maybe time to do so. Oh, and I love how the post before kind of relates to this one. 😉 Good one!
