Baby Brocky...2 weeks old!










Welcome to the world Brock Gabriel!


Brock entered the world on September 5th at 5:54 pm weighing 8lbs 1 ounce and 21 inches long.  I went to the hospital around 9:00 am.  The first part of my labor went slow but once i finally got my epidural I went from a 5 to a 10 in 30 minutes!  Pushed one set of pushes and out He came!  Perfect little boy.  We were in love right away!  Gabe once again, just like he has with every one of our babies dropped to his knees and cried like a baby.  It is all so amazing and emotional and such an amazing gift from God to experience having a baby.  I was blessed to be able to do it four times.  Four of the greatest moments of my life.  And especially experiencing it with the love of my life.  There is nothing better.



 This picture struck me so profound knowing that this was my completed family.




 Seeing that blue "I'm a boy" sign made me tear up.
 Getting ready to go home!


 Second day home...Sweetest little boy alive.  Sigh...those first few days are magical.

And the biggest newest news of all...

We found out in December that we are having another baby!!!  This took a little getting used to...especially for daddy.  But when it all sunk in we were all so very excited!  We surprised and told the girls on Christmas Eve and of course they were ecstatic!  We weren't going to find out what we were having because we really wanted it to be a surprise and didn't want to make it about the sex of the child since everyone was obviously rooting us on to have a boy being that we have three girls.

So going into our 20 week ultrasound the ultrasound tech told us that sometimes its really hard to avoid finding out this late in the game.  Especially if it was a boy.  And sure enough, when we saw the sweet little profile of our baby, Gabe starts tugging on my arm and covers his mouth and points to the screen.  He says "I've never seen that before!"  And the ultrasound tech laughed and said, "yeah that's pretty obvious, its a boy!"  Gabe immediately starting crying and I screamed "Thank you Jesus!"  We honestly had completely prepared ourselves for the fact that we would probably have four girls and that is what we would have and were totally fine with it.  This ended up being a very nice pleasant surprise.  And to be honest...deep down I had a feeling this one was a boy, I just of course didn't tell Gabe that.

So, we are of course over the moon excited that we get to experience having both genders and I cannot wait to meet our little boy!  I already love him so much!  Now to pick a name and get the nursery ready!  I'm due on September 1st so we have some time.  It's all so exciting!
