Boy, Girl, Boy...

That's right, we had our ultrasound yesterday and found out that our fourth baby is a boy! We are really excited...and thankful for another little Broome boy. I must admit, however, that I was completely wrong on my guess for this one. I was convinced that this baby was a girl! Fred had to keep asking me if I was excited...and I kept saying "yes...I'm so excited...and so shocked!"
Sweet sister has been very gracious in her acceptance of another brother as well...she was a bit confused when the ultrasound technician said that he was a boy-- I think that she was just as sure as I was that this baby was a girl:)
We are very excited and overwhelmingly thankful for him...and what's amazing is that I think that we even have a name already picked out. This is a definite record for me and Fred. We are very slow name-pickers...Anna Bell wasn't officially decided on until we had to write something down to leave the hospital!
...So: Thank You, Lord for this little boy. Thank You for how You have already amazingly knit him so perfectly together and how You continue to sustain his little life. We are so thankful for his place in our family. We are in awe and humbled at the treasure and blessing of him. Thank You, Awesome Creator!

Big Two Year Old

Caleb Judson turned TWO yesterday!

Dearest Caleb,

You are a treasure.

You are sweet and tenderhearted.

You are tough.

You adore your "people" and can make someone feel so special when you run and give hugs.

I love how you say "GOD loves me!"

I love how you say "Aww, man!"

You love trucks, cars, and most of all- trains.

You are so interested in letters and numbers. (And I think that if you were my firstborn, you would definitely know them all by now!)

You really enjoy books.

You are learning to hold your own as you play with J and AB.

I'm so thankful that you are a great sleeper.

You're going to be a wonderful big brother.

Happy 2nd birthday, sweet boy! We love you so much- you are such a joy and blessing. I'm so thankful for you!
