Babyham #4 is a...

{Click here if you'd like to see the video}

At 6pm the boys and I met my mom, sister & sister-in-law at my mom's house.  Before we knew it, we were ready for the reveal.  We got Josh on Facetime... Posed for a few pictures...

Counted down... 3...2...1...

And got the surprise of our lives.

I swear to you, I was more surprised at having a girl than I was when we found out we were expecting twins!

I still can't believe it!

Ethan (my nephew) faithfully held Josh up so he could see, and together we found out that our fourth baby will be a little girl.

Wyatt is starting to get excited about the baby, and it melts this mama's heart!

I kept tearing up when I would talk about it.
Total shock and disbelief!

I knew Josh would be impressed with Roxanne's confetti.
She hand cut it. And it was beautiful.
For sure, it was the good confetti!

She's the best sister I could ask for.  She made the day so special for me!

And my sister-in-law Julie is the best sister-in-law-- she bought a gift for a boy and for a girl. She is also a mom of three boys, and assumed (like me) that I'd have a boy. So on the tag for the girl gift she wrote, "A girl? There is a God and he does love us! ;)"

I feel so blessed to have been able to find out alongside Josh even though he's not here.  And so blessed to have my dreams of having a daughter come true!  Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers & comments the last year as I struggled to get to this point!  God is so good!

After losing our first son to being born too prematurely, then having 2 boys, plus miscarriages between both of them, pregnant with our "3rd" baby after another miscarriage-26 years ago we did not find out the gender. I was almost speechless when SHE was born, was sure another boy was coming. Plus she was born on my mom's birthday. What a SHOCK to see all that pink-what fun it will be to have all that pink! 😊
