This kind of post is fun. πŸ™‚

Hopefully the photo explains why this ornament was my favorite. Anna handed it to me as we were decorating the tree, and we had quite the night- lots of hugs, praising our gracious God, and big grins.

So…a question for you. Think it’ll be a boy or a girl?

Baby!This kind of post is fun. πŸ™‚

    • deborah

      We wanted triplets!! πŸ™‚ Sadly, there’s only one heartbeat. πŸ™

      • Steven

        I keep teasing Anna about twins anyway…maybe next time! πŸ™‚

        • Well….I guess we could settle for twins next time, but I’m still hoping for septuplets, so that we don’t have to fight over who gets to hold the new baby! Hey, if y’all will have septuplets we’ll even be nice enough to let Stephanie hold one during church! πŸ˜‰ —-and with no camera loans required!!!

          • Steven

            Ha! That’d give us a nice start toward the family size we’d love to have, but we might have to employ you as a nanny…. πŸ™‚

            • Don’t worry……you’ll have as many nannys as you need…. πŸ˜‰
