First, we are blessed beyond imagination that we (the girls and I) get to spend the summer at Table Rock lake. Dave is studying for the bar and we are allowing him to do so with minimal interruptions. He did get to come to the lake for a couple of days this past week and we are in KC for 2 days this week, so that is fun to have some good daddy time! He will get a couple of weeks off before starting back to work after Labor Day, we are so excited for some family time with him. That being said, I have been a little MIA on here because the internet doesn't love the lake all of the time! And, I love being "unplugged" down there! Here are the girls at the lake- happy happy girls!
Praise the Lord, I am feeling better and able to really enjoy the summer with the girls. Other than laying my chunky baby bod on the dock in a swimsuit every day, I feel back to normal! Which leads me to the reason why we are back in KC for 2 days! I have "the big reveal" tomorrow- I am talking boy or girl reveal- and we are so excited to know who is in there! Obviously, everyone seems to have an opinion on this baby- and overwhelmingly they think it is a boy. That being said, they have thought my first two were boys also and as you can clearly see from the pictures above, they were wrong! My grandfather was 1 of 8 boys, Dave is 1 of 3 boys, I have a brother, my dad has 2 brothers and we have 7 nephews (7 and under) so the thought of me having all girls seems impossible for people to believe. When I was pregnant for the first time, I assumed it was a boy. I thought, surely the reason I was raised with a brother who made me sit through endless "boy activities" my whole life was to prepare me to be the mother of boys. I was surprised and blessed to get my girl! Second pregnancy was the same, I thought that I would have a boy since I was raised in a family with 1 boy/1girl. I was excited at the idea of 1 of each- but another girl came and I was pumped! Now for #3, I am not going to lie, I would love nothing more than to leave the girl clothing in the drawers, leave the pink on the bed, dust off the pink peg perego and pink bugaboo parasol and have a pack of girls running around here! I dont know that I am prepared to mix things up with boy (which is probably why the Lord will stretch me and give me one)! Dave would, of course, FREAK OUT if he gets a boy and I know the Lord would prepare me to be the mother of a boy. I am just saying, if I got to "place an order" we would stick with pink around here! So either way we win, the Lord has blessed us with this miracle baby and he will give us exactly what we need. So, check back tomorrow- I will let you know when I know!Another fun thing to share, I have been doing the Beth Moore Inheritance Bible study. I download them online and watch them from my computer with the listening guide. It is an amazing study, I highly suggest doing it. It is $5 per session to download and I have loved doing that at the lake.
That is my update for today, I will write tomorrow as soon as I have news- we can hardly wait!
