Two ends of the spectrum

We found out today that Baby #3 is a girl. We are thrilled. The boys will be great big brothers, and we are so excited to meet her in June.

Tuesday is dying. I can't imagine the pain the Whitt family is going through. How you hold your daughter while she slips away is the worst thing I can imagine. How do you get through this? I imagine they find so much strength in their other children, who are so wonderful and beautiful. I wonder if I would ever have the strength they have, or the will that Tuesday has. JK's blog said Tuesday giggled this morning and that gave me a smile. The picture here is when I first met the girls in Roanoke.
Wherever Tuesday is going, I know she will be in peace.

A baby sister for the boys! Hooray!

I am so sad to hear about Tuesday. What a horrible thing for any family to have to go through.

Congratulations! Since Andrew was born I have discovered how very different little boys are from girls. I am thrilled you will experience both. Rena

Jane! This is your cousin Alyson. Grandma had given me your blog a long time ago and since I knew that you were expecting I decided to pop on and see if you found out what you were having. . . Congratulations! Girls are so fun. The funny part is we found out that we are having another girl on the exact same day as you and I am also due in June! How fun! My email is aly.ryan.gowdy@gmail.com if you want a link to our blog! Congrats again!!! Girls really are fun!

Congrats Jane! I think it is another sign from Tuesday that you are having a girl. And the boys will make great big bros.
