Well, now that family knows, it is time to let the cat out of the bag! June is going to be a busy month for us, as we prepare to welcome #4 into the family! We are so excited, and cannot wait for this little Bowman bundle to arrive! (Especially me, because I have been sick almost every single day so far!) Here's baby's first picture!
This one scares me, because in all of the first ultrasounds I have seen of my kids, none of them have moved as much so early as this one has! He/she (I think it's a she) was waving his/her arms like crazy and moving from side to side the whole time, the doctor barely could find the heartbeat! But find it she did, and Baby Bowman is healthy and strong! Praise the Lord!
It always amazes me to see new life. I was in tears as I saw that tiny little person moving around...this is the third baby I have seen via ultrasound, and let me tell you, it never gets old! So amazing, and such a miracle!
We have decided to name her (if it is a her) Makenna Ruth. I'm always interested in the meanings of the names, and Makenna means "ascend", and Ruth means "friend". I hope that she will live up to her name and be one who is always a friend to others.
Now, if this little one is a boy.....well, let's just say we are open to suggestions. Caleb wants to name him Espn (pronounced Espin), and I flatly refused. He also suggested Thomas Gunner (nickname Tommy Gun). So yes, we need suggestions. But I really think it's a girl...and I have yet to be wrong, so we shall see!
I leave you with this verse, that flashes through my mind every time I feel a flutter, or feel like running to the porcelain throne...
"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." Psalm 139:14
