A Little Birdie

I have this crazy love growing in my heart for my not yet born boy. I think of him and I feel excitement. I pray for him and I'm filled with joy. 

This love and desire to mother my child is coming straight from God, because physically, I'm not feeling awesome.  I'm 21 weeks and still throwing up almost every day. At my 20 week appointment, I stepped on the scale and I had only gained 1 pound. TOTAL. 

Which leads to a bigger question. Where WAS all of this?

We have a name ready. It's perfect and fits so well with the way God is changing our hearts during this pregnancy. 

And we're meanies. We don't tell until the baby arrives. 

I did tell Ivy the other day because I wanted to hear her say his name in her sweet little voice. Later in the day, I asked her, "Ivy, what's your baby brother's name?"

And she said, "Baby Tweet Tweet." 

We'll go with that for now.

Small Style with Ivy Girl

I asked her if she wanted to have her picture taken and she nodded her vigorous nod that always makes me giggle. Then she posed.

I told Ryan this morning that I'm truly happy with the order and gender of our children. I know that middle kids often feel left out, but Ivy is the only girl which is pretty special.

And she is ALL girl. Can you tell she likes her socks?

You know, the silly thing is that I hesitated to post these pictures because my birdcage pillow wasn't straight and the ledge in the background is a mess (see that black stringy thing?). 

But it's the truth.

Our life is full of sideways pillows and hanging down cords. It's all jumbled.

And I think that's ok.
