It's a . . .

GIRL!!!  We found out this morning that we are having another little sister and couldn't be more thrilled! We're still working on a middle name but her first name is Mallory. It's SO much fun knowing who will be joining us in just a few more months. How did I NOT find out with Riley?? I love knowing ahead of time. We're telling the kids tonight when Tra gets home, but they've called it from the very beginning. Every time we ask them what they think it is they both say it's a girl! When I got home from my appointment Hayley said, "Are you going to tell me it's a girl??!!" Sooo fun. Can't wait to break the news to the brother and sisters tonight. Praising God for daughter #3 and that she looks healthy!! Now the long wait for mid-January to get here! Although I'm thinking it won't feel that long---days move FAST around here! : )

Congrats! I can't wait to meet the little one. Jack is going to be forever surrounded by pink. At least he will learn how to treat a woman right. His sisters will make sure of that. We're so happy for you and let me know if you ever need an extra hand. Love you guys!!

Congrats on the girl. That's just like Tra's family, isn't it? It's like ours, too, and you're going to love it. Jack will love it a lot, too. Congrats! And sorry about all those inconsiderate comments people make. You're beautiful--inside and out.
