The Kids’ Reactions

Trenton and Charlotte were pretty excited when we told them our big news on Sunday.

Evelyn was too busy doing her own thing, as usual, to pay much attention to what was going on.

Once the kids got over their initial excitement, this is what thought about having a new baby on the way.

Trenton:
He told everyone the news right away when he got to school on Monday.  He’s also started teaching the baby his/her ABCs.  But…he also said that if it’s another girl, he’s going to lock himself in his room…

Charlotte:
Charlotte couldn’t wait to call family when we got home from our picnic lunch to spread the news.  But she’s been a little more shy about spreading the news at school.  She also said a prayer about the baby the other day:
In the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.
Dear God,
Can you please make the baby in Mommy’s tummy grow a little faster so that I can feel it move when I tickle Mommy’s belly?  Thanks!
In the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.

Evelyn:
I don’t think she’s quite ready to give up being the baby of the family….
