And baby makes...four!?

Four girls! That's what Phillip and I will have when our new little daughter is born this summer. Wow, four daughters. We went into the ultrasound without any hopes or expectations other than a healthy baby, so another girl is a nice suprise. Quite honestly, it was actually something of a relief. I've been collecting little girl things for almost seven years so a girl is very economical! Not to mention the fact that I have three pink rooms! Don't get me wrong, a boy would be just as wonderful, but we are very happy.

And don't anyone think about saying, "oh, poor Phil needs a son", or "now there won't be anyone to carry on Phil's name", or "you need to keep trying for a boy", or "I'm sorry!". Yes, those are (unfortunately) some very real comments we've had from some in the small circle of people who actually knew we're expecting. For the record, Phillip is ecstatic to have another daughter and doesn't feel the least bit disappointed in not having a son. I think it takes a very special father to raise all daughters and I'm so lucky to be married to one!

By the way, my dad (who also has four daughters) said he's proud to say that he will now have four daughters and four granddaughters. Kind of cool!

I'm so, so, so happy for you! You and Phillip are SO GOOD at girls!

I'm sorry people have made those kinds of comments. That has to hurt some.

My dad says it takes a real man to make and raise a girl. You nabbed yourself a keeper!

Love you all!

Yay! I'm so excited for you guys!!! I couldn't agree more on the comment thing. People have made dumb comments like that to us and it bugs us so bad. Scott loves having all girls too. It really does take real good man to have all girls and I would agree that Phil is definetly one! Congrats to you all. I know she will be GORGEOUS! xoxo

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you!!! I was telling Dan that we feel the same about having girls. Don't get me wrong we are so happy for Kyle but I can honestly say that if it was "just another girl" we would have been just as happy;)
When can we get together?!?
