Brimming with Baby Boys

We finally got to meet my new nephew, Jack, a couple of weeks ago when Meghan and Jay came out to visit for a couple of weeks. He is just as cute as I was expecting and I was so sad when it was time for them to go home. After they left, Max told me he wanted to name our baby Jack. He sure loves babies right now.

I love how Emily is oblivious to the fact that Jack is screaming in this picture. She thought they were both just having a grand time.

I had to steel these photos off of Meghan's blog so you can actually see what a cutie baby Jack is. It makes me so sad that they live so far away.

Then we found out right after Meghan left that Erin and Brian were adopting three month old twin boys! We have all been praying and hoping for them to be able to add to their family and now they have beat us to three children. They found out on Monday night, flew back east Tuesday morning, and then did the adoption on Wednesday. We are so excited and can't wait to meet these two cuties when they get back. They have named them Brock and Isaac and they are about a month older than Jack. Now our baby girl will have a whole passel of boy cousins to run and play with.

Jeff and I have decided we like to zig when everyone else zags since Max came in a group of girls (and was the only boy on my side until these three came along) and now we will have a girl with a bunch of boy cousins. Emily, on the other hand, is right in the middle of a four year dry spell with no cousins closer than two years on my side of the family. (She does have one cousin 9 months older than her on Jeff's side.) Good thing she's a tough little sassy pants.

It's a . . . .

For those of you who don't already know, we are expecting baby number 3 in the middle of July and we found out today that we are going to be having another . . . . girl!! I'm actually a little surprised since I've felt almost exactly like I did with Max so I thought we would be having another boy! We are happy to get either, since they are both so much fun in different ways. I guess that's a perk of already having one of each. (Max is very insistent that we are going to have just a baby, not a boy baby or a girl baby, so we're interested to see how he handles the fact that our baby will have a gender.)
