It's a boy!

I just realized that I haven't posted anything about our soon to be new little one.  Ben and I have always planned on having 4 kiddos before I turn 35.  I turn 35 in September.  We just made it!

This is our fist picture of the newest peanut to grace our family.  This was taken at about 12 weeks.
We took our whole family to the ultra sound.  Tate and Grey got pretty bored but Zoe was anxiously awaiting the news about the sex of the baby.  She was desperately hoping to even out the male to female ratio in our house.  When the ultra sound tech said "Congratulations! It's a boy."  I glanced up at Zoe who was seated near my head and she said, "What did she just say?"  I repeated, "She said it's a boy."  Zoe looked up at the tech very seriously and said, "Can you check again please."  Thankfully the ultra sound tech was a patient woman and obliged her.  It was so obvious that even Zoe could see that it was a boy.  Then she started to cry. 
Zoe has come around to the idea of being the only girl.  I think having her own room and plenty of mommy daughter dates sweetened the deal.

Tate couldn't be happier.  He just says "Boys win mom!"

Aww. Poor Zoe. Congratulations on baby boy, though! Looks like our families will be the same--just that our girl will be the youngest. Definitely outnumbered.

I somehow missed this post and it made me so sad for Zoe! Congrats on getting the forth snuck in just in time!
