The Great Debate

What a debate it's been!
It's one of those issues there's simply no compromising,
One caves or the other.
There's no meeting half way.
There's no common ground.
It's been hard when we both feel strongly about our points.
Mine is right, of course,
but somehow he feels his is right,
or at least safe if nothing else.


One of us gave in.
He/She didn't necessarily give the thumbs up
but passively let things happen.

And eventually...


nature takes its course.


So,
without further adieu,
we are thrilled
and anxious


to welcome baby #4.

Heidi,
I have been following your blog (i admit i am a blog stalker) since you had your sweet Jersey. This post brought tears to my eyes. Even though i have never met you, i couldn't be happier for you and your family!
BTW i am so jealous that you are living near the mountains. I grew up just up the canyon from Provo, in Heber. I hope you enjoy Utah and the cooler weather! Especially for your pregnancy! :) Congratulations!!
