I don’t think any of us were too surprised when the ultrasound wand touched my belly and within seconds, found out the gender of baby #3!
Last night, I found myself in the boy aisle of Rack Room, looking for some cute little man shoes to take pictures with. I saw the pink and the glitter down the next aisle and thought about all the families reactions to another boy. (This is grandson #6 for my parents to a single granddaughter.) “You’ll just have to try again!” and “Next one will be a girl!” But I know that God has given us exactly what He wanted us to have. My desire for a third baby wasn’t to have a girl, but because I have that longing for another baby; that not done feeling. I don’t think there will be a forth, since I will be having a third c-section this time around, but if we do, it won’t be for a specific gender. We’re all given exactly what we’re meant to have and I’m ever so grateful that this third little man of mine has all his parts and is growing perfectly.
The only thing I’m shocked at, is that he isn’t measuring massive like his brothers. Just a few days big at this point. Maybe he’ll give his mom a break and just be a semi-normal sized baby! One thing is for sure, this baby is getting all new clothes. I can only handle the hand-me-downs so many times! The same Easter outfit 3 times over a span of 7 years is just a little too much. Haha.
Cooper has decided to name little man Cooper Jr, while Callan is sticking to Mosquito. Since we didn’t name Callan with the intention to have “C” names, we probably won’t stick with another one. Unless y’all give me something cool. So far, we agree on absolutely nothing, so that’s awesome!
We are all very excited, though! I wasn’t sure how Cooper would be, since he really did have his heart set on a sister, but he says he’s excited, too. He’s going to be an amazing big brother to two little boys! The cashier at Target last night asked me yesterday what I was having. When I told her boy and that I have 2 boys already, she told me that Mom’s with 3 boys automatically go to Heaven, so I can’t complain!
I got on earlier, waiting for this! Congrats on Boy #3! Boys are so fun!
I think you should stick with C names, since you have 2 already. I'm pretty partial to the name Connor since it's my nephew's name. I think Cooper, Callan, and Connor sound pretty great together! 🙂

Congratulations! Its so true God gives us the exact baby we're supposed to have. Good luck with names, it seems to get harder every go-around.
So excited for you. I agree with that cashiers words. Moms of boys are a special kind 🙂 Wishing you the best during your pergnancy!!!
I have three boys and I love it. If you need any pointers, ask away!! Being the only girl in the house makes me special and I would not have it any other way.

Ahh! Yay! Boys are just the best! Congratulations!

Yay for another boy! Ooh and I like Connor, above! 😀 But no, you don't need to use a C. We did the same thing with our first two and switched first letters for the third. It's fine! If all of you were Cs except for baby #3, that would be different. 🙂
If my daughter had been a boy we were going with Cash Montgomery or Cash Porter. Three boys is fun. My hubby is the youngest of three boys and they have a closer relationship than me and my brother.
Congrats, Molly!! If you're not sticking with "c" names, Millie would have been Hudson if she had been a boy!
Amazing! Yay for a band of brothers and mommy's boys. You will be cherished forever! I cannot wait to see this adorable baby:) Congratulations again!

I am a mom of 3 boys and like you, I didn't have the 3rd to be a girl so when I knew it was a boy, I just thought God knew exactly what he was doing. I won't lie, there are times I ache for a daughter and it makes me so sad. I love my boys so so much but sometimes that tiny feeling of a girl creeps in. My 2 oldest names both start with a J and we did not plan that either and the 3rd does not. He starts with an E. haha. 🙂
Congratulations on another boy! I have 4 boys, ages 6, 4, 2, and 7 months. They are wild and crazy, but so so fun! There is nothing cuter than seeing them love on (and wrestle with) each other. The brotherly bond is beyond special to see. You will love your house full of boys!
Yay for BOYS! They're just too stinking sweet and love their Mamas so much! I look forward to seeing your family grow even more beautiful. Enjoy this time 🙂

Congratulations!!!! We have two little girls and already everyone is already asking when our third (and a boy) will be arriving. Nothing in life is guaranteed and as much as we would all love to experience the joys of a son and a daughter in life – we are definitely given what is meant to be. I would love a third but to have a family of 5, not to have a son.
I have always loved the name Carter for a boy 🙂
