As you know, we feel like our family is not yet complete.
Do you also remember that our oldest child, Bubba, made it clear to us that God was preparing his heart for a new child long before baby Q made his arrival?
For several months we have noticed that Bubba is consistently talking about his future brothers and sisters. He often starts conversations with, "When my brothers and sisters get here..."
He has been known to announce that, "we are going to have 5 boys and 5 grils." (grils=girls. I think that is way too cute. "Grils" will probably be in our family's vocabulary forever now). I have also heard him say that, "we are going to have too many kids to count...lotsa kids."
Recently, Bubba got an idea. "Mom, we are going to clean our room! Come on Wubba! Let's go clean our room." Hmm...I thought that was a little weird. Soon they emerged, "Mom, come in here and see our room!"
I headed in there to see a very clean room.
Bubba: "We cleaned our room so now we can fit more brothers and sisters in here!"
Tears came to my eyes as I hugged my little man. "I love your heart" I whispered in his ear.
Here they are showing off their clean room.
