Baby #4: Boy or Girl?

In early December, we found out that we were expecting our fourth baby.  Since that time, we have all been so excited to find out if Pierson and the girls will be getting a brother or if we were going to have a third little princess.  Well, on Wednesday, March 12th, we had a detailed ultrasound, which revealed very clearly the gender of our sweet baby inside.  Yesterday, after reaching the 20 week mark, the wonderful "halfway" point in our pregnancy, Dave and I are excited to share our happy news with you!  So, we took a few fun photos with the children, in order to do so...  :)

Yes, it's true!  The Matthews Family is expecting another little precious baby BOY!  It has been the desire of my heart, for a long time now, to have at least two daughters and two sons, so that every girl would have at least one brother and one sister, and every boy would have at least one brother and one sister.  We are so thankful for this blessing, and now Pierson will also have a brother to grow up with, in addition to his sweet sisters.  Emmi has already named her new baby brother.  It's very sweet; she talks to him through my belly and tells him, by name, that she loves him.  Pierson has also been kissing and hugging my belly, asking if his brother is coming out, calling his brother this, we'll see if it sticks.  And, just in case you were wondering, we later found out that all three statements in the first picture were, indeed, true.  ;)

Thank you each for rejoicing with us,
Amber & Dave
