born 2 be wild!

How many boys do you see in this picture?

I see 3!

We found out today that we have some more little men on the way. Actually our first view of them was that they were punching each other. Through the course of the ultrasound we saw waving, tap-dancing, Baby A patting Baby B on the head, and them trying to entangle their legs. Baby A definitely wants all the attention and will squish his little brother to get it! Yes, boys, this means a lot more testosterone... and probably some boys who are going to eat us out of house and home when they're teens! My mom used to threaten me that I would have a lot of boys, especially when I was unkind to my brother Christopher. Looks like it's happening :)

I am excited and very overwhelmed. Samuel has been into EVERYTHING lately and so I'm kind of scared at the prospect of having two more boys... can we say double trouble?! Well, I guess Libby will be copying me soon with putting her hands on her hips and shouting, "BOYS!" She already goes around saying that she is a "little mommy". In her world Samuel is the "papa" and baby bear is "SaNuel" as she calls him and dolly is "Libby girl". Looks like she'll soon be bossing around her tribe. I can see it now :)

Well, Mike asked me during the ultrasound if we were going to have more (he knows I want Libby to have a sister)... I just grinned and said, "Yep!" But we're planning on waiting a while.

So our house will be a little crazy but fun. I mean if my in-laws raised 3 wonderful men so can we, right? And those boys turned out to be amazing and wonderful gentlemen... and the oldest is totally hot! (I'm talking about my honey!)

Now, if only we can come up with names for these boys... we have a lot of thinking to do!

By the way, we're taking name suggestions. Do you have any?

Yay for boys! I had 3 younger brothers and I survived! I'm so excited for you all! I'm assuming everyone is growing well and healthy? I'm still praying for you...I always think of Prov. 3:5-6 when situations are out of our control and threaten to overwhelm us...
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your path straight."
See? He's already got it for you guys! He is in control, and you are in for the ride of your life! Love you guys!

I love family names. Christopher is a beautiful name and it is twofold in your family. that Christopher's middles name? There are some strong names like David, John as well as Michael. Thomas is a surname in the family. Jen, the Wrattens have lots of names, too.
How fun......double the pleasure...double the fun. What a joy.
love you all

Dear, Jenn! I'm happy you guys are excited. You are surely going to have a handful, but boys are sooo fun!

I laughed - only you, Jenn, could be freaking out one minute and then talking about having another baby the next... It made me smile.

And I agree - the Naps boys are great - we need more like them in the world!
