After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

Heidi's Pregnant FAQ

Sometimes I look at my kids, like I assume all mothers do, and just marvel at how beautiful they are.

Even standing in the middle of a river.

And waiting oh so NOT patiently for dinner.

Three for three isn't bad. I do wonder what number four will be. It's hilarious, actually when people start the pregnant questions . . .

When are you due?

Middle of August.

Do you know if you are having a boy or a girl?

Well, no.

*GASP* What if it's a boy??

Well, we talked it over and we decided to keep it either way.

I love my husband. Such a great answer. But yes, with three girls, a boy will be a change. Not earth-shattering, but a change.

Do you have names picked out?

Kind of.

What do you mean?

Well, we have a few, but we don't tell people what we plan to name the baby. We always end up changing our mind. Plus, we like to leave you all in suspense. **evil laugh**

Frankly, yes, I do like to leave everyone in suspense. I don't understand the fun of knowing gender, name, AND on top of that if there is a planned c-section. Just seems to take a lot of the fun out of the whole process.

Not that a new baby still isn't amazing. But frankly, some added suspense if pretty fun.

So, until the middle of August sometime, you all are just going to have to sit there and stew. And wonder what on earth we are going to do if we have a boy.

I promise we'll keep it either way.

Fun post! We didn't want to tell everyone our son's name until the latter end of the pregnancy because we didn't want other people's opinions and suggestions for names.

Isn't it funny how involved people think they need to be with pregnant people's decisions?!

Can't wait to see the next cute Donnelly!
