Ultrasound



This morning we went for Brittany's first ultrasound. The George genes prevail...she is having ANOTHER BOY! :o)
Brittany thought she was having a girl, Brek insisted it was a boy....obviously Brek was just playing the odds. There's no such thing as 50/50 with us. It's more like a 90/10. We are all so happy and especially happy that little John Ray George appears to be perfectly healthy. (Named after Brittany's dad and Mark's dad) I couldn't get the ultrasound photo's to upload. We did find out the due date was off. She is now due August 8th instead of July 19th, so the babies will be 11 months apart instead of 10 1/2. I think baby Mark is pretty darn excited about being a big brother. :o)
I wanted to clarify my last post. I don't want you to think I'm depressed about losing the rental house. Yes, I was disappointed because I loved it, but I've been though so much lately that I know that God has a plan and when the right house is there, He will make things fall into place. We are doing all we can to keep the faith and Mark is working SO hard. We know money is out there, because we've done the work. It will come in...hopefully sooner than later. We have not once asked for a handout. Borrowing money only puts you further in debt anyways. It's important to us to get through this trial ourselves...and with help from Heavenly Father. It's really the only way to grow. Believe me when I say this hasn't been an easy lesson. I pray that my house sells quickly. Everything WILL turn out okay eventually...I KNOW it will. :o)

WOW!!!! I can't believe its another boy. Dang, girl, someone needs to marry into a family that is ALL girls so you can get a balance. LOL I'm sorry you lost that rental, but have to believe something better is out there for you all. . . Thinking of you and praying for you and yours.

Love,
Tember

Congrats on another boy. I personally was hoping it was going to be a girl. Little Mark is so cute and boy does he look excited about being a big brother.

Well, the baby is healthy and that's the most important...although an absence of a penis would've made it special too :), LOL.
Just think, the kids will be able to reuse all their baby clothes beings the boys will be so close, which is a HUGE savings.

congrats to everyone!

How exciting.. another baby! Although I have to say if I was in her shoes right now I would be freaking out that I was going to have two babies less than a year apart. That's a lot of diapers. LOL

That last pic of the 3 of them is SOO Awesome.

I'm so happy for them! Since it's another boy, the two brothers will be best of buddies, being so close in age, wanting to do the same things, and enjoying each other's company. I loved the pictures.

Oh my gosh! Another boy! A girl would have been sweet, but think of how much fun those two little boys will have together...they'll become best buds!

I know something good will happen really soon...I'll be praying for you :}

Amie said...

Wow that is great, another little boy. Being so close it is probably a good thing!! Maybe my husband needs some of those George Genes LOL. At least it will be alot less expensive being another boy maybe even the same clothes will fit. That is what happened with my girls being 2y 2 weeks apart pore little Brie didn't get to wear alot of new stuff.

Good luck with the house hunting.
