One More Time!

It's just a picture of a picture, but you get the picture:

That's right! Baby #4 is expected to make his or her arrival in August! When we finally told the boys, the conversation went something like this:

Enoch: "Boys, you know how Mommy has been going to see the doctors and having doctor's appointments? Well, the reason is because she has something growing inside of her."

Julien: "You do?"

Tristan: "What?"

Julien: "Do the doctors know what it is?"

Me: "We won't know what it is until August. I've got a picture, though. Why don't I show you in this picture?" (Gets ultrasound pictures and lets them look at them.) (Boys look at it, trying to understand, but obviously still in the dark.)

Enoch: "Do you see what it is? Can you tell what it is boys?"

Julien: "A PIZZA?!"

Enoch: (laughing) "No, it's not a pizza! Can't you tell what it is?"

Me: (also laughing) "Here is a nose. This is an ear. And those are fingers..."

Tristan: "What? Fingers?"

Julien: "It's a baby!"

Tristan: "A baby? You have a baby growing inside you?"

Julien: "You have a BABY growing in your womb? A baby? A baby!"

Me: "Yes! We are going to have another baby!"

Julien and Tristan: "Yay! We are going to have another baby! Hurray! Rosalind, we are going to have another baby!" (They are laughing and cheering and yelling, bringing tears of joy to my eyes)

Rosalind: Yaaaaay! (claps her hands and naturally repeats their enthusiasm)

We are all very excited.
