it's a{nother} boy!

We had our 20 week ultrasound and were so excited and not shocked at all to find out we were having another boy!  Leading up to this ultrasound I think we both knew/joked that we would, of course, be having another boy.  Joking aside, I was really excited and so happy to find out that we were having our fourth boy.  Obviously, I would have been equally excited to have a girl, but I feel so grateful that Heavenly Father is blessing our family with another boy.  It's funny to me that I have to keep convincing people that I really am excited to be having another boy.  People are not buying it.  They think I'm just putting on a brave face.  Absolutely not!  I love having my boys.  I also feel like I could never doubt Heavenly Father's plan for our family.  Like they say in Kindergarten, "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit."  Payton was the only one in our family that was a little disappointed, you know, that his Christmas wish didn't come true.  He didn't seem to dwell on it too long and I'm sure will still be an amazing big brother.  More than anything, we are just so grateful that the baby looked healthy and the pregnancy is going well.  We feel so blessed!

I love that other people have all the same too! I got the same response after delivery with mine. (I don't find out) People wondering if I knew, or if I was sad it wasn't the opposite. I'm super excited for you guys too! Hope everything goes well, and you feel better.

I'm so excited for you!! I have no doubt that you are excited for another future missionary. You are one of the best moms and it takes a mom like you to raise strong men- future missionaries, bishops, prophets, etc. Not to mention what handsome boys you make. Your family is darling and I can't wait to see this next little guy.

Yay--Like I've told you before (I think)Mom's who have all of the same gender of kids are amazing. I think it would be harder to have all of the same types of hormones running around haha!!!
