I've been looking for bedding for the new little one and just can't help think how cool it is that we will be welcoming our 4th son. I'm elated to be having another boy. I really didn't care what he was- either way was great. It is wonderful to have at least one of each, and just be thankful for another child. We do have a nursery all setup with all of Austin's stuff still in it. Austin has been sharing a room with Bradley for almost a year now, and we just left all of his stuff the same. However, that stuff was the triplet's stuff, THEIR theme, so I'd like for Davis to have a fresh start- you know he deserves have his HIS theme. Right? Just because he is our 6th child doesn't mean he doesn't deserve to have his things and be celebrated too. So, now I have to come up with a theme. I'm leaning towards nautical, sailboats or whales. We are going to keep the same crib, wall color, and rocking chair- so I have to stick to the current colors in there somewhat. I've never done sailboats and such before. Bradley's theme was transportation in bright colors, and the triplet's theme was animals more so jungle animals and specifically giraffes for Austin. This is all such fun stuff to think about and plan, and I have to say it is as special for Davis as it was for Bradley.
I did mention that I had an OB appointment the other day. I had another ultrasound- yeah another one-this is how my pregnancies go- an ultrasound every other week until the end and it may go to every week at some point. My cervix was "super cervix", as Bradley would say, measuring at over 4.2 and it only has to be 2.5. Then, the MCA velocity is still a category/group 'C', so that is great. It means they will just continue watching things via ultrasound for now. Davis was moving well, and we got some precious 3D pictures. I'm so spoiled with the 3D ultrasounds! Right now, he looks like a cross between Bradley and Austin. Of course, that means he looks like a good combination of all 3 since Bradley and Cameron look like twins. I'll have to try to scan in some ultrasound pictures of Davis to share with everyone. I don't think I shared that my doctor ended up making me do a 3 hour Glucola the other week. My level wasn't as high as the glucometer read; the blood serum, taken out of the arm, is a more accurate reading. So, I went and did that long, awful test and guess what??!?! I PASSED! No one expected that, and we really don't know what it means besides that fact that I'm not diabetic NOW. It probably means not just yet, and that it will come. I was very excited though, because for a little while longer I can enjoy being pregnant and eat like I want, when and what I want. That is all controlled when I'm diabetic: time I eat, how often, amount/proportion, what etc.So, that is pretty cool! It appears that Baby Davis is happy inside and should stay in past the 24 week mark and for that we are so grateful and blessed.
We have a lot of blessings to celebrate this Easter weekend. Our children top the lists, but most is our Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you Lord for giving your only son so that I may have eternal life and be forgiven for all of my sins. How great is our God, sing with me, How great is our God, and all will see How great How great is our God. . .
Some pictures to share, in no particular order. The thing to add pictures was acting weird. . .

Look at those beautiful brown eyes!
The 2 little ones follow their Bradley around all the time. Good thing God made him to be such an awesome big brother- he still says he wants us to have 10 babies!

Sweet girl saying she wants her Mama
Ridin' the gator; the boys love it.
And, Cameron just watches with great anticipation of when it will be her turn.
Austin was such a big boy carrying the bucket for me while helping himself to some strawberries.
Bradley picked almost an entire basket of strawberries by himself.
And, Cameron just waited patiently on someone to bring her a strawberry.
Going to go pay for our baskets o' berries.
Playtime with Daddy
And, YES, she is usually that happy and always smiling.
So serious with his cute hair do.
