Boys...

New Kid on The Block made his arrival on January 12, 2012. Weighing in at 7 lbs 14 oz and 21 1/2 inches long! This now brings the male to female ratio in my home to 4:1.... and I wouldn't have it any other way!

To be honest when I first found out that NKOTB was another boy, I was disappointed. I had dreams of finally hearing the words "It's a Girl!" and buying lots of pink things. However, God had/has other plans for our family.
When people find out that I have 3 boys, the usual comments are:
" Wow! You'll have your hands full!"
"Don't you wish you were having a girl?!"
"Are you trying for a football/baseball/basketball team?"
"So are you going to keep trying for a girl?"

And now that my third, sweet boy is here, I have to ask.... why such negativity towards boys???
I understand that boys play rough, are loud, and are pretty much always dirty. But what naysayers don't see is how sweet, considerate, and protective they are :) They might play pirates and superheroes instead of babies and Barbies, but under the tough guy exterior, is a tender heart. One day they will grow up and become men with scratchy beards on the sweet soft faces that I kiss as much as I can. But for now they are my sweet, snugly little men.
Don't get me wrong, boys are LOUD!!! And it has taken me a while to get used to living in the "Land of Boys".
It is said that God will never give you more than you can handle, so I'm trusting Him on this!

So... now that my hormones have completely taken over I will leave you with the words of this song:


"Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)"
Dragon tales and the "water is wide"
Pirate's sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer's all tuckered out
Superman's in pajamas on the couch
Goodnight moon, will find the mouse
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears "Amen," wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Godspeed
Godspeed
Sweet dreams


                                           I love you my little men!!!

I agree with you 100% on this one!! Matthew is all boy: rough, loud, dirty, etc. But underneath that is a very sweet, loving, and PROTECTIVE mama's boy!! He used to ask me all of the time if he could marry me! I have a letter from him that he wrote last year: "Mama you are beautiful" Talking about melting my heart!
