It's a ...

From a literary sense it couldn't be any better --I don't have to come up with a new title for my blog.

From a traveling standpoint it's great. There is still no point in our foreseeable future where we will need to stop at a restroom for one of the kids to relieve themselves.

As far as logistics, this should be a smooth transition.

Materials? We are covered. We've got trains, cars and shirts with puppy dogs on them --enough to suit a dozen boys.

Looks like I am going to get more use out of those expensive shoes I like to buy.

The negatives, however, include the food budget. I hear teenage boys eat a lot --as do their friends.

Another would be date nights in 17 years. The guys can't ALL borrow the car.

This poor little one is going to have to wear clothes that are so faded you won't be able to see the logo on them. But maybe that will be the style.

If this family is anything like the older generation of Ellises, this guy might one day find himself tied to a tree.

And my biggest concern:

Who will I talk to when all these boys move out of the house?!?! Will these guys ever call me? And do I want my sons to turn into a man who calls his mama every other day?

I hope my sisters still like me at that point... I'll need someone to talk to.

Really though, I knew this one was another boy.... And I'm thrilled!

If you are wondering what his name will be, just ask Jack. He'll tell you:

"Daddy and Mama are going to come up with a plan."

-and we'll tell everyone as soon as he arrives

Very exciting news, Becca! My poor Molly knows just what you mean with the faded clothes. She doesn't seem to mind too much, though, and I bet your little boy #3 won't either. ;)

You are now my third friend who is having her third boy this year. Wow. I can't wait to meet him! I bet Ty and Jack are excited too.

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

Congrats!! I'm so glad "Lawson" is a frontrunner in your possible names.

And, I think Ty will call you. Jack is doubtful.

Boys are the best. I love my three sons. I actually lived in a house with 10 teenage girls not too long ago. I am so glad I have boys.

How exciting!! I love all my boys! They all bring their own personally into the family! Of course I love my girl too! May God Bless you with a healthy baby and great pregnancy!

You can't go wrong with all boys...I speak from experience. You just have to worry about ballgames, not dance; no makeup, nailpolish or "girl" items to buy; no weddings to pay for and most of all...have you been around middle school girls lately?? I have - and I thank the Lord every day that I don't have to go home to them!!!! I can't think of anyone that would be a better mom to 3 boys! Can't wait to meet this one.
