Six Girls, One Boy!

We're having a GIRL! That's right, baby number seven appears to be a girl. The ultrasound tech didn't have to say anything. I've seen enough ultrasounds to tell. So when she showed us I yelled, "ITS A GIRL!!!" and then both my husband and I burst into laughter. Six girls and one boy is just hilarious to me!! I keep thinking, "Poor Jack, he needs a brother". But, the Lord knows what each of us needs. Not to mention he really doesn't seem to mind all the motherly attention thus far...granted he is only 8 months old :p Dave says, "That's why we have a big garage, for man-time."

Suprisingly, we may have a name that we all like! The last three girls haven't had names until shortly before or after their birth! We're shocked and feeling so accomplished at the possibility of having a name already (well, at least a first name).

I got out the newborn girl clothes the other day and of course we were all dying and you would not believe the amout of "awwww, cuuuuuute" that day. Even Georgia, who isn't quite two, marveled at the cuteness of all the itty bitty pink stuff (that was after trying on everything and realizing nothing fit her).

Praise the Lord! Babies are the best! :)


  1. lol- love you mandi! I'm so excited that it's a girl!! Jack will have a little sister to protect!

  2. I'm so excited that it's a girl!!!

  3. Fun, fun, fun! Love you all!

  4. Oh I'm so happy for you! You are truly blessed.

  5. It is funny how we end up with what we need, I remember my daughter asking but why would God think we need another boy? She already had three and no sisters, she now has 4 brothers and just one sister, she is hoping that one day God will decide to even the score. Blessings to you and your growing family!!
