We can't wait for April, because . . .

Lillian will be a . . .



Most of you probably heard the news a while ago, but for those of you who may be farther away and not in regular contact, this is for you! We're expecting the fourth (and 99.9% likely to be the last) Bunton - Powell near mid to end of next April. I don't believe in due dates anymore, but they tell me around April 13th. I'm adding a couple weeks to that based on past experience, and hopefully I'll be surprised. There's NOTHING worse than being overdue, so if I plan now for later date, there will be no such thing this time, right??? Lillian will be 2 on March 8th, so they'll be two years apart. We had an early ultrasound since the baby gave us a scare by hiding his heartbeat, and at 14 weeks along, it looks like we'll be having another boy. I've about come to terms with it. I really felt like I was done with the baby boy thing, but that's okay! So now, we're just praying to have one more mild-tempered child. We've got one mild one so far (Sully), and the other two are soooo feisty--they take after their Dad, of course. ;) We're really excited to complete our family. I hate odd numbers--there always seems to be an empty gap. Cameron and I think it will be wonderful to have them all close in age as they grow. Sure, I'm sacrificing two more years of my sanity having 4 children age 6 and under (yikes!), but I'm sure it will be worth it and we can't wait for the adventures ahead!
Luke's excited for the next baby to come b/c I've told him there will be no pet dogs until the next baby is 5 years old!

Congratulations! Very very exciting! P.S.
If you don't like odd numbers, then you better go for 6 kids then because I thought you guys were in a competition with Brett and Mer...

yeah!! I had four kids under 5 and it's great that they are close in age and best friends with each other. Good for you guys!

Congrats! I am so excited for you! That is great that you are already almost done, I am only working on making number 2 and I also only think we are having 4 kids so I still have years of losing my sanity! Boys are great though, I am sure you will have a very mild child as sweet as you always have been! Oh and I love the late due date thing, I think I should also adopt that thinking because my first was 10 days late and I was losing my mind every day past the "DUE DATE". Hopefully our babies come a little early as a sweet reward for all we do! :)

Congratulations you guys! I am so excited for you. Robbie always says that this baby number 3 is our last and I feel like you, I hate the idea of just three. I am sure I will win in the end. Good luck in your pregnancy Sara.
