Since it's been awhile...we are 100% having our third son! We are very excited and his birth is soon approaching. We've finally decided (tired of not agreeing) his name will be Joel Asher Conrad. It's great to finally know so I can get his room decorated and wash his clothes (or buy him new ones)! He's measuring two weeks bigger than normal right now and is expected to be around 8.5 to 9lbs if born around due date. Hoping he comes early!

Currently things are a little slower with the BIG boys. They will start swimming lessons the end of June (pending Joel's arrival) and are having fun asking me daily when the baby is coming out. Noah keeps asking why he can't see the baby and lifts my shirt to see my belly. Gabe's going to be a great Big brother again. He's been reading stories to Noah from his little red New Testament Bible like the story of Noah and the Ark. We've read him about Gabriel telling Mary she's going to have a baby and how Noah built the Ark. He's great at retelling them. He's asking important questions about Jesus and some we don't have answers for. Lately the big question was..."Did Peter die on the cross like Jesus?" Where did that come from? Upon asking the Matts at church I gave him the answer that yes he did, but upside down because Peter didn't feel worthy enough to die the same way as Christ. Man...things you can learn from a 4 year old.

Well, I think that's about it for now. Need to go check on the boys they are playing! Hopefully will post pictures of Joel soon!
