Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice.....

....that's what little GIRLS are made of.

That's right, WE ARE HAVING A GIRL!

O.K...not "we" as in Matt and I, but "we" as in my sister and brother-in-law.

Amy found out yesterday that in mid-November we will be welcoming Isabella Grace (or Ilabezza, as Matthew calls her) into our family.

Those that know us well will not be surprised to hear that Mom and I both went shopping as soon as we heard the news. I'm really not sure how you Mommies/Grandmommies with little girls do it. I'm more certain than ever that God gave me boys for a reason. I would be completely broke and naked if I had a daughter to clothe. So many cute clothes to wear....and only 24 hours in a day.

My boys were a little disappointed at first. Matthew says Ilabezza is already giving him a headache, because girls are loud and they talk a lot (He is his Daddy's son for sure). Either way, they are very excited about having a new baby cousin and are quickly warming up to the fact that he is going to be a she.

Amy told my Dad he needed to go out and buy a pink baseball hat for her to wear when she goes out to "check the cows" with the boys. This is going to get very interesting.

Needless to say, I'm tickled PINK (finally)!

P.S. It seems as if poor Ry's monthly birthdays always get upstaged, so I'll do a separate post later about my roly-poly, crawling, pulling up, jibber-jabbering, finger food eating 9 MONTH OLD!

Isn't it great to see that God has somewhat of a sense of humor. As I fondly recall it was Jenny who was the girly little girl while Amy was the rough and tough young little lady who was daddy & grandpa's girl. Now look at the tables turn, Amy gets the daughter and Jenny the fun of sons.

God's plan is amazing and as I look back in the midst of raising three now teenage kids, I recall the task of motherhood as bringing me my biggest heartaches but also some of may greatest joys. Embrace the moments and know that you truly have been blessed. Shoppings just a whole lot different!!!!!!!
