The answer is...



                               JUDE!!!


                    One Who Praises God

The sonogram went great and there was NO guessing. Jude wasn't hiding his stuff! We have it on video too but I gotta load the Flip camera to computer. Mom is here and we've been shopping all day so I am just now getting to the computer!

I began to think it was a boy because of how active he has been.  Sure enough he put on a show for the sonogram and when we got to the middle of the legs, the sonographer said "Do I really need to tell you? I am pretty sure you've seen this a couple of times before."  It was OBVIOUS!

Even better than knowing it is a boy, we saw the brain, the heart and so many other things that looked normal and healthy.  Plus my cervix seems to have raised, I have plenty of fluid and we are doing great.  I measure a week bigger and ALWAYS do with my boys.

Everyone has been asking how Ava Beth is. Well, in the car she got a little upset but we began to tell her how incredible it will be to have protective brothers.  I think I will make all the brothers some black tshirts that say Ava Beth on the front and SECURITY on the back.  Now she seems really excited!

I am filled with joy and feel so blessed and honored that God has chosen me to be the Mother of three warriors. I am raising three MEN OF GOD in a world in desperate need of GODLY MEN.  Well, the Hayes Brothers are gonna rock this world for Jesus! And Ava Beth and I will remain the Queens of it all!

Middle name will be a "W" name so we can stay in line with the other brothers.  Right now we are tossing around Wyatt, Warren and Walker.  Daddy is making the final call!  All the boys on my side (as in all the grandkid boys) have "W" middle names. We have William, Wade, Wilson and Walter so we MUST come up with another "W".

I am in love with my Baby Jude!


P.S. Any of you that believe the "Heart Rate" Old Wives tale, don't! IT WAS TOTALLY WRONG with Jude. :)

Mom of 3 boys and a girl!

Congratulations, my beautiful friend! =) Jude is going to be such an amazing addition to your family and I can't wait to "meet" him. I'm so happy to hear that Ava Beth is coming around. It WILL be wonderful to be the lone princess among warriors.
