Drum Roll Please…

This family of soon-to-be-six are pleased to announce that the next little one to arrive will be a…

I was pretty sure it was a girl and May was dead-set on having a sister, so I was a bit surprised when I was told it was a boy. The proof is in the puddin’ though and there was proof 🙂

I had a great day of traveling the 1.5 hours to the appointment all alone. Thomas was out-of-town on business and at first I was pretty bummed he wasn’t going to be able to be there. But when it came down to it I had a great time going to my appointment alone. It was calm, quiet, and quite magical to finally be able to see the little bean that is growing inside me. I had an overwhelming sense of awe. Babies are miracles through and through.

The baby is wiggly, adorable, and healthy and his due date is still set for Halloween 2013.

Here’s a fun little fact. His oldest brother will turn 4 a few weeks before he comes, so I’ll have 3 little boys within just about 4 years. Crazy huh!! Bring on the tractors, dirt, stitches, Pine Wood Derbies, and ruined clothes; this is just what I want and I couldn’t be more happy or feel more blessed for my chance to be their Momma.

Thank you so much for letting me share my good news with you. Between the two other boys I don’t have many clothes that have survived, so let the little man shopping begin!

    Yay! Now you have a boy for each of my girls! Although I was a little sorry that its not a girl, only because I can’t hook you up for boy clothes…. I love that little man already! Can’t wait to meet him. Love to all you wonderful Griffithses!

    Happy boy baby to you!!!! Isn’t Thomas’ birthday on Halloween too? Maybe he will have cat eyes too! So excited to see the man.

    Congrats to you both! I have 3 sons too and have never ever regretted it, in fact one of them just got married last Saturday.
