I said that I wasn't going to post any pictures, but that I had some cute ones...this isn't one of them. After I posted the last post I was looking at some of my pictures on my computer and laughed out loud when I saw this one. WILL SOMEONE TELL THAT KID'S MOM THAT HE NEEDS A HAIRCUT! Wow, it always looks worse in pictures, right? I think this was last November. In my defense, Noah has had two haircuts since then.

5! Seriously?!

This is just the expression that goes through Brad and my head frequently these days...

We are having our 5th child! I was reading back on our blogs and when I announced we were having Peter, I said our 4th and final child. Well, NOW we are having our final child. I know that there is someone much more powerful than birth control out there but I am hoping he doesn't haven any surprises in store for us in the future. We are happy and most of the time a little overwhelmed by our future family size.

I am due the end of September, and was going to wait until we knew the sex to announce, but we have decided not to find out! We have never done it before, and think if we are going to do it, now is our last chance. And, by me posting this, maybe it will keep me strong enough to keep this decision for the next 3 weeks until the ultrasound. I no longer have free access to an ultrasound machine now that I am not working, so I only have to stay strong a little longer.

So, there it is. I have some cute pictures of the kids that I need to post, and if it didn't take 3 minutes per picture to post them, I think that I would post little more often. But they are all doing well, and we are all looking forward to the warmer weather!
