It's a Girl!



The real reason I have not been blogging is because I found out that I am preggers with baby number five and we are having a GIRL!  I have been so tired lately and not had much energy. Once we found out what we were having, we thought it was time that we tell the kids! So...this morning we called them all together before school and gave them a wrapped gift! We told them to open it and they were freaking out! Inside the present was a pink baby outfit and I had made a little sign that said It's a Girl. We got quite a few mixed reactions - Caitlin was not buying it, Maddie was depressed because she said she liked our family the way it was, Bailey was super happy and Parker wanted to know why it couldn't be a boy and if they were going to cut open my stomach.


Well, after all the mixed reactions, their carpool came to pick them up for school. The best part was when they got in the car with their friends and excitedly told them the news, Caitlin's friend Hannah said, 
"Oh by the way, your Mom told me to tell you.....April Fools!"

Were you fooled?
