It's a little boy!

here is a profile shot:

We are just in love with him. Dallin and Evie are so excited to be getting a little brother and love to give him kisses. I thought it might be a boy, though I wasn't very sure, but this pregnancy has been very similar to Dallin's so that was my guess. Only 5 more months to go!

Oh, and if any of you moms have any tips where I can find cute maternity clothes that won't cost me fortune, please let me know. I pretty much have to buy all new clothes because I've never been pregnant in the winter before!

With Dallin it was cookies and sweets, with Evie it was steak and tuna fish sandwiches (two separate, not steak and tuna together), and with this little one I have been dying for homegrown tomatoes. Store bought are not the same, they have to be homegrown. Lucky for me, it is tomato season! A week ago, my dear friend Dianna showed up at my door with a large ziploc bag full of tomatoes from her mom's garden. There were three times as many as there are in the picture. I ate them all by myself. Within about 4 days. I can't get enough, so if you live nearby and you happen to have some extra garden vegetables, I'd be happy to take them off your hands. :) And thank you so much to Dianna and Dianna's mom for the treat!

Four years ago..

you joined our family on August 1st and made us the two happiest people in the world. It was 7 years ago that doctors told me I may not be able to have children, and 5 1/2 years ago that they told me I should wait 5-10 years before trying to start a family. But it was 4 years ago that you came to this earth and blessed our lives. You were, and always will be, my miracle baby.

You are 3 feet, 5 inches and 35 pounds. You have big brown eyes and the cutest smile ever. You LOVE diggers and anything to do with construction. You are so sweet and good natured that it's hard to ever say No to you. You say the most sincere and sweet prayers and you constantly amaze me with your vocabulary. You tell me I'm beautiful several times a day, just because you know it makes me smile. :) You love to read books and ask me to read to you every chance you get. You are a wonderful big brother and are always looking out for Evie. You are sensitive and always concerned about how others are feeling. When we asked you what you wanted to do on your birthday (after many fun suggestions), you chose to spend the day mowing the lawn with Dad, "fixing" the sprinklers, sweeping the yard, etc. I think you are the sweetest boy in the whole world. We love you Dallin Keith. :) Happy 4th Birthday!!
