baby sister.

The kids were both at Jessi's when we went for our sonogram.
Afterwards, when we went to pick them up, this is what greeted us in the driveway.
I was instructed to stand on the correct one!

We kept them in suspense for a few seconds before I jumped on GIRL.
Sophie starts shrieking and jumping around...
poor little Lawson had a different reaction, though.

His little arms hung at his sides, his chin dropped, his lower lip popped out and we had actual tears for a few minutes!

They had spent all day talking about how we will be excited and grateful for whatever God decides to give us... a brother or a sister. But he obviously really wanted a brother. He kept saying, "Why didn't you stand on BOY?"

He was even too sad to get in the picture with Sophie.

In the car he said, "But there's already so many girls! You and Sophie, Marley, Chloe and Zoe. Me and Daddy are the only boys."

He had cheered up by the time we were home, though, and was excited that he got to be the one to tell Miss Amy. He's even asking if the baby can still sleep in his room, even though she's a girl.

"I promise I'll be really quiet, Mommy."

Poor little Lawson! How sweet is he! He'll be a great big brother and just old enough to protect his younger sister. So excited for you guys! :)

That is so sweet. My brother had a similar reaction when my parents came home with me (he is in the middle of two girls just like Lawson will be). He got over it (or used to it at least :)
