Baby Blessing #5...It's a.....

Today we found out the gender of this precious little one that has been growing inside of me for the past 18 weeks!! I have not really had any morning sickness with this little bundle, so I thought it must be a boy...WELL, no, sir! It is  GIRL!! And surprisingly when the u/s tech announced that, I was so excited! Maybe I secretly was hoping for another girl...I like familiarity ;) I am so excited! I think I already said that.

I was a little bummed when we told our boy (who already has 3 sisters) and he said "but I pwayed fo a boy?!"  I do feel a little sad for him because he was so wanting a brother...but God decided that we needed yet another princess, and we are so thankful and blessed <3 I told my mother in law, "Someone has to be providing good wives to all of these future pastors & missionaries!" 

I will admit though- the more daughters I have, the more inadequate I feel in raising them! I have so much I want to teach them, but there is so much I can't really do well myself (like sew!)...I want them to grow to be the best wives & mothers they can be, and I am just feeling overwhelmed thinking about that today! So, if you think of it, say a little prayer for me!! :)
