The Big Announcement

Well Mark and I made our big announcement this week.  We are expecting baby Gilley number 4.  I went a few days ago and had my first sonogram.  (Below is a profile pic.) No they couldn't tell what the sex of the baby will be yet but we will find out in about 6 weeks.  I hope we can hold out until then.  Most of you know that we have 3 girls already.  It would be pretty convenient to have another girl because we have all the girls stuff already but I know that Mark would really like to have a boy;  plus, he won't be alone in a house full of girls.  ha ha.  My due date is July 25th so we will see.  

So other than that things have be pretty normal around here.  Today Aurora helped me make lentil soup.  She loves to help in the kitchen.  Poor little Gwyneth was trying her best to help too but Mark was nice and held her and carried her around while Aurora and I had our mommy daughter time.  Aurora is getting so big too.  Im pretty sure that by the end of the summer she might be wearing some size 6 stuff.  She can't wear her 4t pants anymore.  

This week I tried to go through everyone's clothes and get out all the stuff that was too little or that no one was wearing.  If we do have a boy someone will be inheriting a lot of girl clothes!  

Gwyneth is growing fast too.  She is starting to talk a lot and she looks at me like I know you know what I'm saying mom.  I just talk to her like normal and pretend that I do.  She is still pinching Aurora and smiles almost every time she does it.  She has also realized as have we that she is a pretty good climber.  

Corina is doing well at her homeschool.  I love it.  I do have to say I do miss her having the little parties at school and doing all the seasonal things but we can do those at home.  Actually the other day she made a mini heart pillow.  She did a pretty good job.  She is wanting to make some more so maybe next week I will post some pics of some of those.  

Have a good week everyone.
