WOO HOOO!!!!!!

We were truly happy with a boy or a girl. I LOVED the idea of having 3 little boys running around but I also love the idea of a little girl running around too. I especially love the idea of Freeland having a daughter. If you asked River he said he wanted a sister. Although, Im not too sure if he knew what he was saying! It was still sweet. 

We were going to wait and do something fun & exciting to reveal the gender but we just couldnt wait. 

So there you go .. we are having a little GIRL! Im praying she knows the grace and peace that comes from knowing the Lord early in life & that she finds her identity in being a daughter of our savior. Phew what a mighty challenge and honor it will be to raise a daughter!

(and wouldnt you know this time around we actually had a boy name already decided! Back to the drawing board!)

  3. hooray and congratulations! what a wonderful blessing to add a little girl to your family :) it's been amazing to me how much different having norah has been than what mason was like as a baby- of course, i can never quite tell what is her personality vs. what are the boy/girl differences, but every little girl i've know is super vocal and norah has been a crazy chatterbox from day 1. wishing you all the best for the rest of your pregnancy!
