It's official, the Shafer girls are going to be outnumbered.  That's right, it's a BOY!!!  We are thrilled to be welcoming another son...though we're not sure what Frances's thoughts on the situation are.

I just love finding out the sex of our baby.  For me, at least, it makes the baby more real.  I can take this little one out of the "it" column and plant him firmly in the "him."  I can think about names and nursery and clothes and all things blue.  I can more concretely dream of what his precious life will be like.

We are thankful.  We are excited.  And we are trying to prepare for the onslaught of trucks/trains/balls that is sure to fill our home.
